Is a Javanese cat right for You?

The Javanese gets its vocal nature from its Oriental origins.  They are very strong jumpers and will effortlessly get on top of furniture and high places.  They posses a loving nature, and despite being lively, they are content to sit on their owner’s lap and be petted.
