Long haired kitty

Hi all

I have a short haired tortoise shell and when she's a bit older my girlfriend and I would like her to have kittens, but we want them (or more specifically the one we will keep) to be long haired.

Her mother was a rag doll and we think a domestic ginger was the dad.

Just wondering if it would be possible for her to have a long haired kitten?

Thanks for any replies.

Best chance to get the kitten's appearance and attributes you want is to spay your cat and go adopt one from a shelter.

Maybe...no guarantees. Go to a shelter and pick out a new kitten...much more responsible way of going about getting what you're looking for.

Go adopt one from a shelter. The world has too many "mutts" already that are unwanted because they aren't purebred.

If you want to witness birth and take care of kittens you can foster a pregnant kitty

I couldn't agree more! There will be plenty of adorable longhair kitties waiting for a person like you. Sadly there are more kittens in the world than there are homes for kittens, please don't add to the problem!

I agree with choosing one that is already at a shelter. There are no shortages of long haired kitties that need homes! Why bring more kittens into the world. They are hard to find homes for, end up in the streets suffering and starving. You would be doing a HUGE favor to one that is already born and needs a home. PLEASE spay your cat before you end up with a nest of short hair babies that you don't want.

Do the responsible thong and don't bring more cats into the world. There are upwards of 80 MILLION cats on the street in America alone.

Long hair is recessive. Just find another at the shelter.
