10 Largest Cat Breeds – These Felines Will Steal Your Heart in a BIG Way!   

10 Largest Cat Breeds – These Felines Will Steal Your Heart in a BIG Way

One of the reasons people give for preferring cats over dogs is their size. For people who live in cramped apartments, having a dog is just not practical. Cats are more suited for apartment life because they are relatively small and even though some like to sleep on your lap, the weight does not really bother you and may in fact be very relaxing for both cat and person.

However, for every generalization there are always exceptions. Not all cats are lightweight. The following list will show you the ten largest cat breeds. If you like your cats small and dainty, the following breeds go the other end of the spectrum. These are the heavyweights.

Maine Coon

Maine Coon

The Maine Coon is one hefty feline. Tipping the scales at 15 to 25 pounds, the Maine coon is a giant among domestic cat breeds. Its origin is the state of Maine in the US and is in fact the official state cat. Aptly nicknamed the gentle giant, this breed is known for its playful and sociable personality and intelligence. Its silky fluffy coat, long and bushy tail, and cute face are just some of the reasons we love the Maine Coon!

British Shorthair

British Shorthair

This beautiful cat is one of the largest shorthair breeds weighing in at around 15 to 22 pounds. The most common color is the British Blue but there are other colors like seal point, white and fawn, and even calico. Its distinctive feature is the plush fur, sort of a thick carpet that you just want to keep touching again and again! Personality-wise, these cats are very easygoing and not as active as other breeds so obesity is a problem if diet is not controlled. They do well with other pets and also children but don’t like roughhousing and typically will not enjoy being picked up. Grooming is also a breeze because of the short hair. All in all, the British shorthair is a very good breed for a family who enjoys quiet evenings just hanging out in the living room with a heavy cat on their laps.

Ragdoll

Ragdoll

Weighing in at 15 to 20 pounds, this is one ragdoll kids would have a hard time carrying around in their arms! The breed was named so not because it is very light but because it goes limp and relaxed when picked up. The Ragdoll is a semi-longhair cat with beautiful blue eyes and a characteristic colorpoint coat. It is very docile and gentle and is known as a dog-like cat because of its tendency to follow people around, tolerance to physical handling, and relative lack of aggression toward other animals.

Ragamuffin

Ragamuffin

What an interesting name for a cat breed! The ragamuffin is actually a variant of the ragdoll and in fact shares almost the same temperament as the latter. It was not recognized as a separate breed from the ragdoll by the Cat Fanciers’ Association until 2003. It is strongly built feline that takes three to five years to reach full maturity. It can weigh 10 to 15 in females and 15 to 20 in males.

Norwegian Forest Cat

Norwegian Forest Cat

This sturdy feline tips the scales at 15 to 20 pounds. It has a very interesting name and an equally interesting history to go with it. Some believe its ancestors were brought by the Vikings to serve as mousers on their ships. They then bred with local cats in Norway, producing the modern-day Norwegian forest cat we know today. Norse legends also speak of the skogkatt, a fairy cat that dwells in the mountain cat that has the ability to climb sheer rock faces. What other cat can claim such a colorful backstory! Like its ancestor, this breed is very adept at climbing because of its strong claws. It is adapted to the harsh winter because of its glossy, long, waterproof top coat and dense under coat for insulation. It has long legs and bushy tail. This cat loves the outdoors with a lot of energy to cope with the challenges that go with it. It can be very demanding of attention but is generally friendly and good with people.

Siberian

Siberian

The Siberian is closely related to the Norwegian forest cat. Male cats may weigh at 10 to 20 pounds. This is a very athletic cat and has the build to prove it. Its strong hindquarters, large paws, and barreled chest prove this cat definitely lives up to its origin. What makes this cat extra-special though is the fact that its fur is said to be hypoallergenic. Allergic people who love cats can now have an opportunity to adopt a cat without the added “perks” of nonstop sneezing and watering eyes.

American Shorthair

American Shorthair

The American Shorthair weighs in at 12 to 15 pounds for males and 8 to 12 for females. It is powerfully built but is not very athletic, preferring to watch birds and other animals instead of catching them. It is quite content to sit on the window and observe or just sit on your lap.

American Bobtail

American Bobtail

The American Bobtail tips the scales at 12 to 16 pounds. It may not be as big as the former breeds on this list but is nevertheless not to be ignored. It still carries some heft from the full and broad chest, stocky build, to its large tufty paws. Its most interesting feature of course is the short tail. The cats in this breed have different tail lengths but averages at 4 inches. Personality-wise, American Bobtails  are very playful and social creatures and have a talent for escaping rooms and cages. I guess it likes the wild outdoors more.

Chausie

Chausie

The Chausie weighs 10- to 2 pounds. The breed was developed by crossing a domestic cat with a jungle cat. The result is the Chausie we know today. They are the otters of the cat world for their playful, friendly nature. They don’t like being alone and do best if they have other cats or even dogs around.

Savannah Cat

Savannah Cat

This last breed is a veritable giant with a weight of 20 pounds. Also a crossbreed, it was developed by crossing a domestic cat with a serval, which is an African wild cat. Both the Chausie and Savannah cat are not recognized by CFA but are recognized by International Cat Association. Unlike the other breeds in this list, this breed is not stocky but is long and leggy and has a slender body. Its most attractive features are its spotted pattern and ocelli on the back of its ears.

Joy comes in many shapes and sizes. These cats are huge and heavy but so is the joy cat owners get from caring for these majestic creatures. If you are looking for a bundle of joy, try adopting a cat. Fur balls aside, cats can be very good companions. The size doesn’t matter, it’s the love you have for your pets that does.

Dracula was introduced in the TV adaptation as an American entrepreneur wanted to bring modern science in the Victorian society. However, in reality, he simply wanted to create havoc and destroy the people who ruined his life several centuries earlier. This would have been a perfect plan had he not found the woman who seemed to be the reincarnation of his dead wife. This has immediately gotten the attention of potential viewers and it has raked over 5 million viewers on its first episode.

The show saw a continued decline as the next episodes were released.

Despite the overwhelming number of viewers who watched the first episode of Dracula NBC, it didn’t push through as the season progressed. It continued with only over 3 million viewers up until only a little over 2 million viewers were left. This prompted NBC to not renew the show for a second season.

After the announcement of the show’s cancelation, there was no further explanation on the part of NBC why they have to do it. Though the decline in the number of viewers prompted the cancelation, many people thought that it should have still been given the chance to take off. Sadly, it did not happen.

There were petitions to revive the show.

Rhys Meyer was the top choice of Bob Greenblatt, the chairman for NBC Entertainment, to take on the lead role. It was decided upon despite concerns that the actor has been struggling with substance abuse. It was also rumored that he was required a sober companion to accompany him to the set. His salary was also said to be held up until the first 10 episodes were completed. Despite the alleged problem, Meyers still had an astounding performance throughout the show.

According to the network’s Chief Content Officer, Ted Sarandos, there show is of Netflix caliber. He believes that people around the world can’t get enough of it.

Aside from picking up the show that was earlier dismissed by another network, Netflix also released a statement that was referred to as NBC “snubbing” their viewers. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said that if the other network wanted to alienate their viewers, it is up to them. For Netflix, their main priority is to give their viewers what they wanted. If they wanted to have Dracula, then they will get it.

It has been very evident that Meyer was disappointed when the show was canceled. He treated the show like his own baby, but the project did not push further. Thus, when the negotiations with Netflix finally succeeded, he was very glad to announce it. The announcement was done during the party thrown by actress Goldie Hawn in London. The new show is also featuring a strong Irish cast composed of Kati McGrath and Victoria Smurfit.

One of the reasons why Netflix decided to negotiate in bringing Dracula back to life was the overwhelming support by viewers over social media. With the #NetflixSaveDracula trending, it is evident that the show had a very strong fan base. Since Netflix is known for saving shows that were canceled by other TV giants, people are expecting that it can do the same for Dracula. Among the shows Netflix saved were Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, House of Cards and Arrested Development.

Netflix has a steady support for movies with vampire themes.

Netflix has a steady support for movies with vampire themes

One of the reasons why Netflix said that its viewers would love Dracula is because it has a steady support for releasing films with a vampire theme. Among the most popular films that you can see on Netflix, are The Hunger (1983), 30 Days of Night (2007), Interview with the Vampire (1994), and Let the Right One In (2008). Netflix seems to understand what their viewers want and give whatever it is that they clamor.

Now that Dracula NBC is certainly going back on Netflix, fans from around the world can look forward to its release. This time, it should have a massive support if we want to see it for a third season or more.

These 10 Eerie Details about the Abandoned Linda Vista Hospital Will Scare the Hell out of You!

These 10 Eerie Details about the Abandoned Linda Vista Hospital Will Scare the Hell out of You

In the early 1900s, Linda Vista Hospital was opened to provide health services to railroad employees in Los Angeles, California. It was originally called Santa Fe Railroad Hospital and was built at the Boyle Heights neighborhood. For several years, it continued its operations smoothly up until it started to see a decline in the number of patients. This eventually led to the closure of the hospital. Several years later, it became known as a haunted area and a popular place for shooting horror films. Let us take a closer look at this hospital and some of its creepy details.

It used to be a self-sustaining hospital.

It used to be a self-sustaining hospital

We all know hospitals as a place where sick people are cured with the help of medicine and other treatments. Linda Vista Hospital was more than just a hospital in a sense that they ran a farm too. This was made to ensure that the patients get fresh milk, butter, eggs, vegetables and meat. They have their own poultry farm and garden. When the hospital opened in 1904, there was a fanfare. It also followed a Moorish-style building design and was eventually rebuilt with a more Mission revival Style structure. All these things suggest that no one really saw that the hospital would have an unfortunate ending.

The hospital started its decline in the 1970s.

The hospital started its decline in the 1970s

After several decades of operation, the hospital started to see a decline in the number of patients. Most railroad workers started to use conventional medical insurance policies. The area where the hospital was built also started to become poorer and more affluent people started moving out. This has eventually affected the funding of the hospital. With money starting to come out of the hospital, its services started to decline as well.

Linda Vista Hospital was accused of poor health care services due to lack of funding.

Since the hospital started experiencing money related problems, they couldn’t afford to provide the patients the same quality service they used to give. As a result, the started to reduce operational expenses just to make ends meet. Eventually, the hospital was blamed for increase in death rates within their facilities. It was an unfair accusation since they were treating a lot of patients with gunshots and stabbings at that time, and the seriousness of their cases would have ended in death anyway. Nevertheless, it scared people away and in 1989, the hospital was forced to close its emergency services department. By 1991, the hospital was shut down.

The abandoned hospital became a center for paranormal investigations.

When hospital employees left Linda Vista, nothing was left except for some medical equipment and records. Since the place saw a lot of deaths in the past, it did not take time before paranormal investigators came in to see if there were paranormal activities happening. In fact, Ghost Adventures’ crew stayed an entire night at the hospital for an investigation.

The hospital became a favorite location for several films and music videos.

Not so long after the hospital was abandoned, filmmakers rushed to the place to shoot horror movies. Among the most popular movies shot at Linda Vista Hospital are Insidious Chapter 2 (2013), Rift (2012), The Young Blood Chronicles (2014), LA Slasher (2015), and the Scribbler (2014). Music videos were also filmed in this location. This includes Assfist by Iris, Just One Yesterday and Alone Together by The Fall Out Boy, and Poisoning the Steps of Babel by The Dawn of Ashes. Other notable TV shows with an episode filmed in this location are Charmed, True Blood, Criminal Minds and Bachelor Pad.

The most eerie part of the hospital is the downstairs room.

The entire hospital itself will freak you out at first glance. However, if you go down the dimly lit downstairs room, you will be scared even more as thousands of personal files containing the death records of former patients are kept. These files have collected dust when the hospital was abandoned, but the information is still intact. You can only imagine what gory details are contained in those documents.

Linda Vista Hospital is reopening as a senior housing facility.

Linda Vista Hospital is reopening as a senior housing facility

It might not take much time before Linda Vista Hospital becomes a housing facility. It was in 2011 when plans of reopening the place started. The 4.2-acre Linda Vista Hospital was purchased by AMCAL Multi-Housing Inc. They decided to renovate the main hospital including the nurses’ dormitory and turn them into a senior housing facility. The place can provide up to 97 apartments for old people plus a medical facility. The affordable housing facility will only be offered to adults over 55 years old. However, they have made it clear that those who live at the Boyle Heights area will not be the priority, but will have a good chance of getting one should they decide to apply early and meet all the requirements.

There are plans to provide more for the prospective tenants.

In order to attract more people to buy a room at the new senior housing facility, there are other activities being offered such as job training, social activities, health and wellness programs, and financial literacy programs. Older people with an annual income of $16,000 to $25,000 are eligible to buy a unit. The reconstruction of the place faced tough challenges though, as it is considered a historic building. It needs to be renovated without destroying the integrity of the area.

New plans for the hospital sparked controversies.

Despite the good intention of the new owners of the place, it has still stirred some controversies when it was learned that old people are now placed on a haunted house. It was deemed cruel and inhumane. Although they are given a more affordable rate, it is still deemed inappropriate by many. Nevertheless, the original plan continued. In fact, the second phase of the construction if expected to be ready by 2015.

The new tenants of the senior facility continue experiencing strange things.

Despite the new look of the place, it can’t be denied that it used to be a place where a lot of people died. It was also abandoned for years. This is why it no longer comes as a surprise if people who currently live there start talking about strange things happening. Some people told stories about a scrub sink that is operated using a foot suddenly operates independently. There were others who talked about seeing green lights coming from the windows. Others just have negative vibes when they are around certain areas in the old hospital.

Now that this old Linda Vista Hospital was turned into a housing facility, we can no longer see the marks of a place that used to be a haunted house. However, the place has already been immortalized in several movies and it will continue to haunt us forever.

Torn Between Shih Tzu and Poodle? Here are 10 Reasons Why You Should Go for a Shih Tzu Poodle Mix

torn-between-shih-tzu-and-poodle-here-are-10-reasons-why-you-should-go-for-a-shih-tzu-poodle-mix

Everyone loves a good old dog to be with especially during times when you just feel like jogging around the park on a Sunday morning or maybe a good company while you’re watching your favorite TV show. There are plenty of dog breeds to choose from, and if you’re the kind of person who prefers the smaller breed over the large one then more often than not, you would just be choosing between two of the most adorable toy breeds in the world – the Shih Tzu and the Poodle. But why choose when you can have both with just one dog? You should just go for the Shih Tzu Poodle mix, which is more commonly called the Shih Poo.

It does have an off putting name, but the Shih Poo is quite charming in so many ways. Here are some must know facts about the adorable Shih Poo.

They’ll have you chasing them around the house when they are in the mood for some game.

They’ll have you chasing them around the house when they are in the mood for some game.

A Shih Poo is a very energetic dog, so you better brace yourself for some lots of commotion inside the house. Kids would definitely love having them around. They’re the ultimate playmates. It’s best to have Shih Poo among the elderly and kids who are old enough to know about responsibilities.

Shih Poo can be different from each other depending on the kind of its poodle parent.

Shih Poo can be different from each other depending on the kind of its poodle parent

Genetics play a very huge role in how the Shih Poo pups would turn out to be. Their color and fur would be very different from each other since there are those that are purebred from two hybrid parents, and then those that are from a poodle and a Shih Tzu parent.  It’s always wise to stay away from aggressive parents or litters when you’re buying your own puppies.

They’re a bundle of joy. The perfect companion on days when you feel like you’re so blue.

Not only are they energetic and fun loving, they can also cheer you up in ways you would never even imagine yourself. They’re energy is quite contagious too. They’re very much like the ultimate happy vibes magnet so you would be back on your feet in no time, once you get yourself around one of these dogs.

They easily develop dental problems so you should be more aware of their diet.

They easily develop dental problems so you should be more aware of their diet

The most common health concern of such dogs is their dental health. They develop lots of tooth problems especially when they eat the wrong kinds of food. It’s better to be very careful with their diet to avoid such problems. Dry kibble is said to be the best diet for them.

Training is something they’re not very good at. You need an extra dose of patience on this one.

Training is something they’re not very good at. You need an extra dose of patience on this one

They’re intelligent but when it comes to training, they can become very stubborn. It’s best if you start to train them as early as possible because when they get a bit older, the harder it is for you to make them focus. Practice reinforcing giving rewards instead of punishments. They are really very hard to motivate especially when they’re eyeing on something else to do.

They take time to potty train.

They take time to potty train

And because they’re extremely stubborn when you train them, one common problem that you would encounter as you go along the training phase is potty training. Again, make sure you use positive reinforcements and constant motivation for them to listen to you very well. Have more patience when it comes to this training because they sure are very fond of staying indoors.

They’re very cat friendly, so if you got cats, they’ll get along pretty well.

They’re very cat friendly, so if you got cats, they’ll get along pretty well

Given that they’re friendly and playful, they could get along with anyone and that include the dogs’ mortal enemies – the cats. It would surprise you but they do make a fine pet duo. Think about it, a house with two fury friends that aren’t constantly at each other’s throats.

Expect to have a new bed buddy from the day you welcome a Shih Poo in your house.

Expect to have a new bed buddy from the day you welcome a Shih Poo in your house

They are very cuddly animals. They always want to be around everyone. No matter where you go to, they end up following you every single time. They even stay in bed with you. It’s really hard for you to train them to not sleep on your bed but it’s not impossible. You can try training them but by the time you’re close, you would just end up letting them sleep on your bed anyways. You have been warned.

Learn to brush fur properly.

Learn to brush fur properly

We all know how furry the Poodle and the Shih Tzu are so it would be quite expected that their mix would of course be hairy and adorable as well. Learn how to comb their fur carefully as they don’t really tolerate much of the hair tugging. It would be best to take them to the pet grooming as often as you think they need to if you don’t know how to brush properly or you can always learn how through tutorial videos.

They’re companion dogs and they like living inside your house.

They’re companion dogs and they like living inside your house

They can sleep outside, but you’d just end up hearing them struggling to scratch the door, or howl just to get your attention. They do prefer sleeping indoors, (most particularly on your bed, where you’re just inches away from them) so it would be a whole lot convenient for you and him/her to just let that be.

Dogs aren’t call man’s best friend for no reason. They’re the best companions you could ever think off. It does take a lot of responsibility and commitment for you to get yourself to be the leader of the pack, so you better be ready to train yourself too, especially if you decide to have a Shih Poo.

Are you now convinced that a Shih Tzu Poodle mix or a Shih Poo is the best choice for you? Tell us what you think!

top-10-most-outstanding-reprisals-for-a-sequel-labyrinth-2-return-of-the-goblin-king
This notable and award winning Jim Henson fantasy movie evokes a certain nostalgia to the generation of moviegoers it belongs to.

Here are some unforgettable reprisals that have captured the hearts and minds of many and of which we surely hope to see.

The Flamboyant Goblin King

The Flamboyant Goblin King

His deceptively good looks and enthralling costumes give in to every nook and cranny of an innocent heart. Not only that, but David Bowie’s persona is automatically turned into this beautiful and mischievous creature that grabs both men and women’s attention every time. The antagonist David Bowie may not be on this sequel but it would be quite an impact to have someone replace him with the same expectations on screen.

Jim Henson’s Puppetry and Costumes

Jim Henson’s Puppetry and Costumes

The nostalgic presence of David Bowie as the Goblin King Jareth emanates magic and heights of sorcery of dramatic flair to enthrall even the most aloof soul. The effect of costumes and puppetry of realistic yet charming looking goblins adopt a big chunk of this fantasy movie’s fantasy magic appeal.

The Storyline

The Storyline

Much like any fantasy adventure movie the plot revolves in a game of cat and mouse. Jenifer Connelly as an elder sister tried to go through the Goblin King’s maze to rescue her brother from turning into one of his goblin servants. The audacity and charm of the Sarah in pursuit of her baby brother almost cuts the story short but a twist in the story makes her fall into a deep slumber with a poisoned peach.

Jareth and the Girl Sarah

Jareth and the Girl Sarah

Who can say what this movie contains aside from the amazing effects. The promise of the Goblin King and enthralling purpose of capturing Sarah translates to the magic onscreen between the heroine and antagonist. What starts as a game of cat and mouse soon turns into a blossoming romance and Jareth’s passion and entrapment of the girl Sarah becomes too irresistible even for the audience.

Songs of Magic and Love

Songs of Magic and Love

Bearing the same egocentric, demanding and entrancing voice to kick in with the flamboyant singing prowess of the Goblin King is something to watch out for in case the same soundtrack is released. Much can also be said with the vocals rendered in songs such as the “Magic Dance” with Bowie holding the treasured babe in his arms. The movie pushes its story with harmony, mood and melody striking the very heart of the characters and audiences alike.

Goblins as Unforgettable Characters

Goblins as Unforgettable Characters

To revisit the tale of Sarah in pursuit of her little brother deep in the Labyrinth meant Sara had to deal with the goblin servants of the Goblin King. These affable creatures from the “Underground” command a brand of trickery, game and mischief that come in all shapes and sizes. Yet in deceiving Sarah the goblin servants seem to foul up bearing their innocence and earnestness ending with a bonding and true friendship with Sarah.

The innocent babe and revolving characters

The innocent babe and revolving characters

This movie captures the imagination of children of all ages and just so with the main characters. The goblin servants. Jareth and Sarah, her little brother, uplift the story more in an elaborate sequence of dance and song. No wonder we are still touched and keep to the screens to watch the story unravel with its twists and turns.

Memorable moments and lines that draw to the heart of this film

Memorable moments and lines that draw to the heart of this film

The Goblin King promises Sarah his all if she surrenders herself to him and in return he would willingly give up Sarah’s baby brother for her place.

Jareth: “Everything I’ve done, I’ve done for you. I move the stars for no one.”

Jareth: “It’s only forever, not long at all.”

Discovery of the presence of the Goblin King confronting her once and for all after a long journey in the Labyrinth turns Sarah into desperation and pleading.

Sarah: “You’re him, aren’t you? You’re the Goblin King! I want my brother back, please, if it’s all the same.”

Jareth: “What’s said is said.”

Sarah: “But, I didn’t mean it.”

Jareth: “Oh, you didn’t?”

The haughty and arrogant, power wielding Jareth bluffs and pushes Sarah to try even harder

Jareth: “So, the Labyrinth is a piece of cake, is it? Well, let’s see how you deal with this little slice…”

This is an earnest yet comical response from an innocent goblin servant to Sarah.

Sarah: “You’re horrible!”

Hoggle: “No, I ain’t. I’m Hoggle.”

The ending and final utterance fast approaches, as Sarah echoes the exact same words of the Goblin King to end all.

Sarah: “Give me the child. Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child that you have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great…”

The Labyrinth

The Labyrinth

Representing a huge hurdle to retrieving her baby brother from the powerful Goblin King Jareth, weaving through his lair is not as simple as it seems. Thus the Labyrinth proves inescapable and at times, the fastidious Sarah is tried into mind bending games for her to solve on her own.

The Beautiful and Innocent Sarah

The Beautiful and Innocent Sarah

Played by a fifteen year old Jennifer Connelly her charm and beauty makes her the perfect object of the Goblin King’s affection. He tries to put her in a trance like state and promises her everything if she obeys all his commands. Sarah is sweet and promising and nothing could prepare her more than the challenge of the Labyrinth and its ruler the Goblin King.

The unique facets of the movie entangle and seem to remain in ones consciousness even when the end credits roll. If the Return of the Goblin King is truly forthcoming then the pieces of the story can unfold once again with a tumultuous or happy ending much like the original one. This epic story is worth retelling and sure to compare with no less than the prequel to leave us spellbound once again.
