Arrival Story:
Nonsense was an "accidental" adoption, we had returned to our local animal shelter to recover our spay deposit on a kitty we had recently adopted, he was a very furry domestic long hair, but they had misidentified his gender! Guess they could not find his "parts" in all that fur! While there, we wandered into the adoptable kitties room, and were instantly drawn to this little spotted silver kitten, 6 weeks old at the time. Her appearance was striking, we had never seen a gray spotted cat before, and she was the cutest friendliest kitty there. We instantly fell in love, and ended up having to give the spay deposit back, since Nonsense came home with us. She grew into the most beautiful spotted wild looking cat, while maintaining that delightful playful disposition we fell in love with. She was clearly one of the luckiest accidents of our lives!

The profile picture is a pastel Terri (my wife) had done of her as a birthday present for me. It is a measure of the special place this special gray kitty held in our hearts, she was the only kitty we ever had an artwork done for. Over the years we were graced with her cuteness, she sometimes seemed suicidal - Our neighbor's huge Akita (this dog was probably 150 pounds, and on his hind legs was almost as tall as I am) hung his paws over the fence between our yards. Nonsense would sit on top of the fence beside him, and bat at his nose. She did not realize that he could have ended all nine lives in one gulp! The first time Terri took her for shots, the vet asked what breeder we adopted her from. When she replied that she was a shelter kitty, he was incredulous, telling her that Non was a purebred Egyptian Mau. Doing our own research, it was clear to us that she exactly matched the Egyptian Mau in both appearance and temperament. From the green eyes to the black eyeliner, she looked all Mau. A few years after Non went to kitty heaven (after her kidneys failed), Terri found a local Mau breeder at a cat show, and we ended up adopting one of her retiring breeding females. With the exception of their tails (Non's was much longer, Maddy's was a bit short), Nonsense could have been Maddy's twin. I know many here will say that without papers she was just a DSH, but in our hearts she will always be our first Mau. RIP Nonsense, you brought us so much joy... (even over twenty years after losing her, I am still tearing up as I write this.)
