Guh!

People always answer, when asked what they're going to spend their lottery winnings on (or the ridiculous sums they win by taking part in TV quizzes), that they'll take the family on a holiday to the Caribbean.

My family can take care of their own ticket to the tropics. If I ever win the lottery, or inherit a fortune, there's only one thing I want to spend the money on:

The Ashera

big beauties! and HOW MUCH?? £12,000?!! woah - balls pet indeed. I guess you can walk them on a lead like a dog ... to save buying an ENORMOUS cat litter tray!

They're quite something, aren't they?

I must admit though, that I have a few reservations about the way these gorgeous animals are being marketed as a commodity for those with more money than they know what to do with.

You're echoing my thoughts. On the one hand - kitties! On the other - these are supposed to be pets! For $22000, they'd want to be one heck of a cat. And what's with the gene monitoring? What does that mean for a cat that fails the test? Are they discarded like slow greyhounds to scientific experiments?
And you'd never be able to let a cat like that roam around in the backyard, let alone be free to wander the neighbourhood as it pleases. The financial loss if it was stolen would be devastating.

The gene monitoring makes me uneasy, too; and the fact that none of the kittens are sent to their new owners with their reproductive organs in tact. I can see only one reason for the mandatory neutering/spaying: Lifestyle Pets want to keep demand and prices high by limiting the supply.

But oh! imagine cuddling up to such a big cat on the couch!

Oh the mandatory spay is pretty standard amongst reputable breeders here. It prevents you using their bloodlines for your own profit - and also ensure you don't turn any of their females into kitten factories. If you want to buy a cat to breed, the price is a LOT higher than if you want one for a pet.

But yeah, cuddling up to one would be nice, as long as it was a cuddly cat. :)

I like that they say they come with one year guarantee...but I wonder how that works. Do you get a new one if it breaks? Or will they send a refurbished one over? The mind boggles.
