Hairy is best. unless you're a pedo.

Not quite as hairy, but the Maine Coon is much lower maintenance for long fur. Brush once a week, maybe. Normally you just pick up the self-clumping hair off the floor.

I hate you so much right now...I could almost deal with the hairy pits, but the hairy legs were just wrong.

Satan's Bunny Slippers: dittybopper:

Persians are a bit unique.

First, there are the grooming requirements.  The shedding isn't that bad *IF* you brush them every day or so, but yeah, they do shed.  A lot.  They also get knots in their fur, especially where their legs move.

Then, we have the staining/eye booger situation.


This is why I think of my Himi as the miracle cat.  I don't brush him, and he doesn't clot up.  He had one clotty spot once, but after combing it out I found a little bramble stuck in there someone must have carried in the house at some point.  His eyes are the same way, no tear staining/goopy stuff, maybe I wipe them once a month.

No poop catching in the back either, even though he's 14 and not quite as "squatty in the box" as he used to be.

But I freely admit he's an anomaly.  Other long haired cats I've had require exactly what you said.


Some Persians are worse than others.

For example, Tar-tar (Starlight) really doesn't knot very much, and needs less brushing than Frey-frey or Deucalion.  Deucalion needs it the most.

On the other hand, it seems like Freya is more susceptible to Klingons.

Also, Deucalion's fur, when shed, shows up on everything, because it's a light color.  The other two cats, not as much.

In thinking about this, it's likely due at least in part to the fact that Starlight, being around 10 years old, is less active than the other two, who are about 3 and 1 respectively.

dittybopper: Some other considerations:  Keep the fur on the back-end near what my son likes to call the "dirty volcano" short, to minimize turds getting stuck there.


Oh yeah, that's fun! Our Mr Harry actually comes to me when something is stuck in his fur and he needs bathing. It was like a gift from heaven when we discovered "sanitary clips" (aka "butt shave") for him, an elderly Maine Coon rescue. He's a lot more comfortable and pleasant to be around.

For those who haven't had a cat clipped yet, the fur can be clipped so the britches appear normal if that is an issue, but any clip reduces the frequency of baths. We take Harry to the vet for his shaves because I want someone that really knows what they are doing if they are going to be using clippers around his business. Maybe they are just being nice because we are established patients, but they charge a lot less than any groomer I know and I get to help hold him.

As a side note for those considering a longhair, it seems to me that a higher percentage of longhairs have litterbox issues, maybe it is the fur between the toes that collects the clay litter, or something unpleasant caught in their tail feathers, or who-knows-what. Mr Harry prefers a puppy-pee pad type system (but not with real puppy-pee pads, they stink) instead of regular litter, especially now that he is getting older -- 15 this past May.

They are more high-maintenance than a typical short-hair domestic cat, in other words, but actually less work (I think) than a dog, and you can get short-haired Persians.  They are called "Exotics".

I agree, we have an Exotic rescue and she has retained the Persian calmness, sweetness and voice. All she needs is a bit of brushing once a week or so to control shedding. If you must have a purebred, Exotics are great cats but they may still have the eye issues and some other health issues that Persians have.
As with any registered animal, know your breeder.

I'll vote for Maine Coons. I have 2 of them and they're almost like puppies more than cats. Very curious and sweet. Brushing mine isn't bad but then I also keep the nether regions trimmed on them so that helps keep them from getting as dirty.

Himies are also sweet cats. I volunteer at a cat rescue and we had a Himie there recently. She was actually adopted by us a couple years ago, thrown out for who knows what, lived on the streets for 6 months before someone took her to another rescue and got our info from her microchip (we're a 2ndary contact on all of our cats for this reason). I had to drive to campus district to pick her up. This is normally a 30 minute drive but it was the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas so traffic was heavier. She walked right into the carrier at the other rescue, chattered to me the whole way to our rescue (about 1 hour drive) and walked right into the exam kennel with no problems. Nothing phased her.

Hopefully her new owner will take much better care of the sweetheart :)

The age factor makes sense. Harry rarely had any sanitary or coat issues, or even needed brushing, until he was about 10 years old. He must have spent a lot more time grooming himself than I realized. Does Starlight have arthritis? It affects Harry's flexibility, his Glucosamine Chondroitin med seems to help.

I haven't seen any real signs of it.  She's just an older cat that likes to sleep a lot during the day.  At night, she's got no problems jumping up into the bed to get her good night petting, and jumping back down, or jumping up again in the morning when we sleep late to let us know the sun is out.

That's good. We all get to the sleep-a-lot stage if we don't pissoff too many of the old people. I enjoy the way everyone has to say "Good night," and "Get up! It's time to feed the kitties."  Their bedtime routine of using the automated cat boxes so they all active just as we're drifting off to sleep -- we enjoy that somewhat less.

dittybopper: Meh.  My Persians seem just as hairy:

[i43.tinypic.com image 850x637]

Can't find a good hairy picture of Deucalion at the moment, but he's at least as hairy as Starlight, the Blue Persian.  Freya (the Tortie Persian) has thinner fur.

Persians are very hairy cats.  They look a lot larger than they actually are because of all the fur.  It also means you have to brush them.  A lot.

/And wipe their eye boogers.


My sister has a weird cat. I dunno what its origins are, but it's a giant (three years old and BIG paws, easily 25-30 pounds without being overweight) and it's about as hairy as a persian. Big ol' heavy fluff-ball. He likes to jump on your stomach when you're sleeping and then dive up to your chin and headbutt you. He's also a scaredy-cat because he would not come downstairs until my nephew's helium-filled mylar balloon was put in the garage and any noise, motion, or number of people to which he is not accustomed will send him skittering upstairs to hide. I picked him up and held him as best I can hold a giant ball of pure lead. It was tough work but somebody had to do it.
