Two more fosters, breed guess?

Just got two more fosters, both are purebreds I'm told, one is a Himalayan but I haven't been told the other cat's breed. Maybe some of you could guess? Their names are Kitty and Tina (though I may change them... not a fan of either name for them) Kitty is 6 and Tina is 4. I'm told that Tina is the Himalayan but haven't been told what Kitty is but the owner got them from breeders and is sure they are purebreds. Also I've noticed Tina has some tangles near her rear end is there any little secret to getting them out or do I just brush for as long as she'll let me? I have little to no knowledge about long haired cats.

Kitty


Tina

They are both beautiful. Kitty looks like a Himy to me, Tina...a silver (lynx?) persian? Beautiful markings, no matter what.

For tangles and snarls on their bottoms, if they won't let me brush them out, I shave them a potty-patch. I really only have to do this with Squirrely-Jo. Shadow needs some help every now/again, but I can usually brush hers out before they become snarled. Her problem tends to be 'cling-ons' from the pottybox. I have more trouble with snarls behind elbows than I do on their bottoms. ...except for S-Jo, of course, who is too big to properly clean her hind end so shaving helps her considerably.

According to MIL the husband said that Kitty was a Birmese but MIL says no way, he looks nothing like a Birmese. That was my first thought that Kitty was Birmese. Husband was broken hearted to be letting his kitties go but apprently the wife suddenly had allergies (WTH what is with this popping up everywhere now and so sudden?) I'm going to email him and see if I can find out more. Also think Kitty might be male, that cat is huge compared to Tina. Both have dazzling blue eyes and the cutest meow when you call their names. Kitty also seems to want to get outside very badly, running from open window to open window and pushing at the screen.

Both are being soo good with Drifter, I'm so glad. I'm told that the previous owner had a Doberman.

Leazie no, I'd love to have a stair case like that but both of those pictures came from their previous owners.

Heidi I thought she looked a little like a Persian too.

ETA: Just got in touch with your previous owner about them. Apprently both liked to be combed which is good for me and both like to be outside which explains why Kitty keeps trying to get out. Just emailed back asking about their breeds.

Alright got a better picture of Kitty's face, the light is a little dim but it was the best I could do. There isn't any light in this area and the flash just makes things ugly. Noticed that Kitty is also front paw declawed. have yet to get a better picture of Tina or see if she's declawed, she's hiding up in the spare room right now.

ETA: Tina is also declawed and seems to think that hiding in the box spring is a good idea.

They are both so beautiful, Lisa! Tina looks like she has a Persian's nose, but I'm no expert.

Aren't they John? Beautiful cats. Breaking my heart right now that Kitty wants to go outside so bad, keeps pawing at the screen door and then coming over to meow at me in the sweetest voice, it almost sounds like she's saying "out". I wouldn't be surprised if Tina is a persian, she seems to have the face but I don't know much about cat breeds.

Just be patient, Lisa, and give Kitty lots of lovin'. She'll adapt to being an indoor kitty.
She might be saying "Out!". Arianwen does sometimes.
Explain to her why she can't go out. She might not understand all the words, but she'll be comforted by your feelings and the tone of your voice.
Tina will be happier, too, when her friend is calmer and happier.

The owner has told me that Tina is a Himalayan, very shy and its normal for her to hide away like she is right now, and that Kitty is a Birman and is very outgoing and queen of the household. Reyna is not a fan of Kitty at the moment as Reyna believes she's the queen in this household and now I've insulted her by bringing this little diva into the house. Have I started an uprising? There have been hissing matches all day between then but no contact. She did however give Kitty a run for her money when she hissed at Kobi and Kito, but didn't touch her.

John, I had a little heart to heart talk with Kitty, telling her why she can't go outside and her responce was to paw at me gently, meow softly and leap into my lap to lick my chin before going back to the screen door and looking out. Poor gal.
