I just wanted to answer a question that keeps coming up on the comments about Dagi. He is an Oriental longhair or also known as Mandarin or Javanese. This is not a cat for the novice as they are very much a part of your life. They don't like to be alone and are always there with you (preferably on your lap). They 'talk' to you constantly! They are an extremely difficult breed to find anymore in Holland. We tried to find a new kitten for years with no luck. These cats are not supposed to be alone and one breeder asked me how I coped. I told her I really believe that Dagi sees ME as the other cat and Jos as his owner.
