    Due to job loss and financial downturn I am having to give up my apartment and move in with family and so I am looking to find a home for the dearest of little kitties. Jasmine came into my life as a stray a little over two years ago. The vet at the time estimated her age at 3-4 years, so she would now be 5-6 years old. After researching I very much believe Jasmine's breed is Birman. ' Birmans have a medium-sized, rectangular body with a broad face and distinct Roman nose. Their ears are ideally as wide on the base as they are tall and should be set as much on top of the head as on the side. The eyes are rounded and should be a deep ... (Read More)sapphire blue. The Birman's fur is medium-long and should have a silky texture. Unlike a Persian or Himalayan, they have no undercoat, and are thus much less prone to matting. Coat color is always pointed, save for the contrasting pure white, symmetrical 'gloves' on each paw that are the trademark of the breed. Any other spot of white on the points is considered a serious fault. The base body color is white to cream, with a wash of color that corresponds to the points but is much paler. Birmans are relatively quiet cats; most are soft spoken and refined, with soft chirp-like voices. The Birman is a hearty, healthy cat that does not reach full maturity until approximately 3 years of age. Because of its exceptionally sweet nature, the Birman is easy to handle and makes an ideal pet. The Birman is sociable, gentle, quiet, loving, and companionable. They love to be with people and are playful and desirous of attention. They are social with both people and other animals.' Jasmine fits every characteristic of the Birman breed to a 'T', right down to the curly belly hair and the quiet, breathy meow'|except on one very important point. She has been the sweetest tempered cat I have ever known with people but she does NOT get along with other cats or dogs. In short, she will not tolerate them. The home I'm moving into already has two cats, both male and one of them getting old at 14. We tried introducing Jasmine to them slowly, first at a neutral location and then so on, and every single time she displayed aggression and once when we let our guard down she chased Binx (the 14 yr old) upstairs and attacked him viciously. Nor do I think she would be good around small children. We don't have small children around except in the neighbor's yard and going along the sidewalk, but whenever she's been outside and hears or sees kids coming she slinks into the house. I believe she has been neutered. When I had her checked The Cat Doctor shaved her belly and there was one tiny little pucker of a scar that could have been from surgery but not definitive. We didn't want to just open her up again if it wasn't necessary so the vet said to watch her closely for signs of her going into heat and in the past two years she hasn't shown any signs. Jasmine would make a wonderful pet for a single or couple or any family with teens or grown children, but no other pets. She is stunningly beautiful to look at and has an equally beautiful temperament. She is the quietest cat, sometimes she'll open her mouth and all the sound that I can hear is escaping air. The first year I had her she was indoor/outdoor, but for the last year living in an apartment she's been completely indoors and content with it. She is fully cat box trained and likes it kept clean, I scoop every day. She has been pretty non-destructive except that she likes to sharpen her claws on rugs. Since she seems to live to knead laps, I keep her nails trimmed so I don't end up with a mass of pin pricks on my thighs. She really gets lost in it, goes into this zen like state, which seems natural for the descendant of temple cats. She tolerates getting her nails trimmed with little hassle. (Less)
