Skills: He's very sneaky & gets into things (inside the chair & inside bottom of couch) Had to block his entrances because I didn't want him to get stuck or hurt in there.
Arrival Story: Adopted Bailey from the Palm Valley mobile unit parked outside of PetSmart store. I LOVE animals, especially kitties! - but being a college student & living in apartments, I wasn't allowed to have one. Finally, I'm now living somewhere that I can!
Bio: Bailey already feels like a member of the family - I LOVE HIM SO MUCH! He's sweet and cuddly, tries to help me with my homework (sits on computer keyboard when I'm writing papers for school), play attacks or pounces (likes to play with my long hair), a little awkward (doesn't always land on feet when jumping up to attack things. lol
Bailey has grown so much in the one month that we've had him. His paws are pretty big for a kitty, so I'm thinking that's a sign that he may be a BIG cat when he grows up. He's got pretty long hair - top layer is longer - a little "beard" or mane on the sides of his neck are starting to become more prominent. He's also got longer fur between toes and fluffy fur patches on the back side of his legs. When reaching up to grab things he sites strait up on the back of his legs - his tummy is filling out - he looks a lil chubby, but that's just his long fur (gave a bath last week & he's really not that big...yet).
One of the most adorable things he does is when he "baby talks" to me - Its not really a meow, but more of a squeak meow & he sort of sticks his tongue out as he does it. He's VERY talkative & I try to carry on many conversations with him (even if he really doesn't understand what I'm saying)
We say "I love you" by slowly blinking our eyes at each other & he gives me kisses on the nose =^.^=
After adopting Bailey, I picked up some kitty stuff at PetSmart - one of the guys there showed me a cat magazine with a Maine Coon on it & told me that he thought Bailey might be part Maine Coon. I had never heard of that breed before, so I did some research when I got home. They are BEAUTIFUL cats! I'm not sure if Bailey is part Maine Coon or not, but he does have some of their traits - Either way, I think Bailey is very handsome =^.^=
