Silver Tabby

Playing, lying in the sun and, well, eating

She tantrums if I don't let her out into the corridor sometimes.

Favorite Toy:
She likes chasing balls, her feather thing on a string and her tunnel that I made her

Favorite Nap Spot:
On top of the radiator in living room, or on her space on top of the wardrobe

Favorite Food:
Cat sausages. I hide them in various places if I have to be out a while, alas she finds them all before I have left ,ost often.

She's a good jumper and good at getting places she shouldn't be in such as the fridge and food cupboards


Arrival Story:
I once told a student of mine I would love a cat and she made it her business to get me one, it seems. Sweetie was 6 weeks when she was brought to me. She was not all that prepossessing at first, being riddled with fleas and her coat looked rough and uneven, and she ponged a bit too. She was the size of the rats an old friend of mine used to keep, but her face was pure feline, somehow the essence of catness. I could see cheetahs, leopards in her face. Some of my students say she 'looks exactly like a tiger' and appear to find her quickness of movement somewhat unnerving.

Sweetie is a friendly, engaging cat that seems to like company and has been in several neighbour's homes. She can cry very loudly and persistently and jump up at the handle in order to get out - on one occasion she succeeded. She now has a companion, Pepi, and I hope she won't be so lonely now. She is very intelligent and curious and seems to need a lot of stimulation and input - otherwise she tends to shred paper and cardboard toys. I have sometimes suspected she might be a Bengal cross and recently someone who owns two bengals of her own agreed with me, telling me that in some of her photos she looks like a pure Bengal, although her face is a little different from the classic bengal shape. Her coat is beautiful now and she still looks a little wild, she is a very sinuous silver-spotted tabby and I hope, since she has been spayed, that she will not put on too much weight. She likes chasing her 'thing on a string' across the sofa most and has balls to chase. I also made her a 'tunnel' of sewn-together rugs to hide in and ambush. She tends, however, to get bored with her toys easily and until Pepi came, only ever seemed to want to get out into the corridor - to hide in cupboards or things left out by neighbours, where I can'tget at her..... She is not a lap cat, but does snuggle up in the early morning, it is clear she could have benefitted from a little more time with her mother before being given away.
