Five Things You Didn’t Know about Nebelung Cats

The Nebelung breed of cat is a fairly new breed that has a long body, wide-set green-colored eyes and long, dense fur. Their fur is silky and is a blue-grey that is strikingly beautiful matched with their unique yellow-green eyes. When those who know the breed, think of the cat, probably the first thing to come to mind is the word long. It is the best descriptive since everything about the cat is just that, long: long body, long legs, long neck, and long tail. This breed is loving and affectionate with a mild temperament and very intelligent. It’s always a good idea to read-up on a breed of cat before you purchase or adopt one to be sure it is a good fit for you, your lifestyle, and the cat. If you are considering a Nebelung cat for your family, you may have already begun researching the breed, but here are 5 things you didn’t know about Nebelung cats.

1. Shy around strangers

Although this is a very friendly breed of cat and loves its owners dearly, it typically bonds with just a couple family members and is shy around strangers. This is a hide-away cat that will typically run and disappear under a bed when company or a stranger appears. They may eventually begin to feel more comfortable with people that come around often, however, even still, they can be standoffish and aloof.

2. Rare breed

Because this is a rare breed of cat, it may be a bit difficult to find one. You will want to do your research to find a reputable breeder in your area and make sure they have a good standing with other breeders. Find out as much information from the breeder; how long they have been breeding this breed of felines, and learn about the lineage it has produced. The more you know, the better you will be to get a good, healthy Nebelung cat.

3. Will accept the company of other pets

Not all cat breeds are accepting people and especially other cats. Nebelungs are a breed that will get along with other cats in the home, whether they are the newcomer, or the other cat is. Of course, introductions are needed and socializing the cats together is highly recommended, but over time, your Nebelung will learn to enjoy the company of another cat. They will often become good pals and he will even allow him to spend time with the owner as much

4. Can be leash trained

This breed has often been described as acting more like a dog as opposed to a cat. They show similarities to a dog’s behavior, such as following their owner around the house. They prefer to be with you rather than act as a loner, like many cat breeds will do. They also communicate very well with its owner, often alerting to issues that may be wrong, such as cleaning their litter box, food issues and wanting attention. They are also easily trained on leashes, like a dog, so if you think you’d like to take your cat for a walk, go for it. They are trainable and ready to where you go.

5. Thrives on routine

Nebelungs live routine in the house. They adapt to a certain routine for everything, including your work schedule, if you work, feeding times, playtime, anything that happens on a regular basis around the house, they adapt to. Because they are so routine oriented, when things change in the home, this can make them nervous and feel out of sorts. They may start to show different behavioral tendencies other than you are used to seeing. You will want to spend time with them to let them know you are there for them a nd reassure them often until they show signs of adapting to the new change.
