Blue-Lynx Point

Cuddles, looking innocent, careening around the house noisily, flopping, having her ears scratched, hide and seek/ambush games, sweets, keeping her people company at all times and making sure they stay home, rolling on cozy wool carpets, digging.

Being brushed. Good thing her fur doesn't tangle. Also brooms. We suspect her first owners chased her with one. Her little brother, who she growls at in passing in a voice like Marge Simpson's grumble.

Favorite Toy:
A squeaky stuffed Christmas reindeer with a loop on top. She stole this toy from her Tita.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Her basket, her "can" in front of a window, the couch, the bed, the closet...

Favorite Food:
Turkey, ham, corn on the cob, chocolate (which she does not get), random crunchy crumbs on the floor (a very flattering food for a princess)

Frankie has some sweet skills! Such as: getting her absent people to return home by depositing socks, slippers and stuffed animals in the living room with a mournful cry. Kicking things into oblivion with her big feet. Christmas ornament terror.


Arrival Story:
She was at a shelter because her original owners gave her up at the age of 1 1/2 because she was "aggressive." She is extremely playful and plays a bit rough, but certainly isn't dangerous. Their loss. We were looking for a kitten, and when we were about to leave the shelter I looked behind some kitty condos and saw a gentle, pretty blue-eyed face hiding in the corner. We brought home a grown-up kitty! At least she looked grown up. Mentally, she still hasn't grown up. She turned out to have a delightful personality and bloomed into an even more beautiful kitty than she was when we adopted her.

The information that came with her when we adopted her said "Birman" but we had our doubts at first, after looking at big fancy show Birmans on the internet. She looked more like a ring-tailed lemur with short legs and big feet. She was underweight and skinny, and the vet told her she was probably a Siamese mix. Then she filled out, and her luminous gravity-defying fur grew long, giving her a cute puffy head that we teased her about. A year after adopting her, she'd blossomed into what sure looks and acts like a Birman, but we'll probably never know her true provenance.
