Cat a who la? Cat a hula?

Contrary to popular opinion,  a Catahoula is not a Cat that does the hula!  The Catahoula Leopard Dog (and I'm one) is a really interesting breed of dog!  Catahoula is the part of Louisiana where we are said to originate.  You can learn more about the origin and characteristics of the Catahoula on these sites:

I'm a very Catahoula-y Catahoula!  I'm reserved with strangers, very sweet and devoted to my people, freakishly smart, have great problem solving skills and I'm very athletic.  I have webbed feet.  I don't like to get them wet and they're hard to clean so that kind of isn't the best!   Even if you've never heard of the Catahoula Leopard Dog, once you've seen us you'll know that we are really very attractive, wonderful dogs.

  6. We thought you were a kitty! You look nice, a bit like Lucy, our dog cousin in Spain. We're Malaysian cats: http://blog.lepak.com
