Nov. 25th, 2005 @ 06:52 am Chausies... *drool*
Hey there. I don't currently own a chausie, as I'd like to wait until my daughter is a little older to introduce a large feline... (I have my eyes set on a large F1 male... he's about 55 lbs right now) but have wanted one for YEARS, and live relatively close to a reputable breeder. I'm seeing that no one else has joined this community, and that's a shame. I think it's due to the severe lack of knowledge about the breed. Have you commented about your community to the few people who are listed as having chausies in there interested lists?

**edited* Yeah, no, my "3" key didn't work and my "5" key stuck. He's exceptionally large at 35 lbs, at 55lbs he'd just be a mutant. FYI, he's a retired breeder currently privately owned, and his owner can no longer keep him... I know he'll have been rehomed by the time I am actually capable of purchasing one of these AMAZING animals, but I still drool over him... ;)

I have sent invites and advertised and done everything I can to get folks to join; but there just doesn't seem to be that much interest. I think, though, that as the breed continues to develop there might be more people wanting to learn more about chausies.

That's an awfully big boy, even for an F1. *grin* Since you have a young child at home, have you considered getting a later generation (F3 or higher) until she gets older? The higher the percentage of wild blood; the more unpredictable the cat can be... but it sounds like you already know that. ;-)

You might also want to check out www.chausierescue.com. There are a lot of wonderful cats there that need homes. :-) You can also join ChausiePetOwners on Yahoo Groups for lots more info about chausies. Anything else you need to know, just ask... if I don't know the answer, I can find out or point you in the right direction! :-)
