Snuggling with me
She doesn't like it when I don't go to bed when she tells me it's bedtime (9:30pm)
Little mice made of real fur. She won't play with the ones made of fake fur!
Favorite Nap Spot:
On my bed, with me in it.
Fetching toys without being taught. Saying "please"
I got Petunia from a local "breeder" after the death of my kitty Mocha, who I would describe as a chocolate tuxedo cat who was half Siamese. Mocha was my intro to the Siamese personality. After he died, I decided to get a Siamese because he was such fun. When I went to see this litter of Siamese kittens, they captivated me. Petunia was the middle kitten of the litter. She was so tiny, she fit in the palm of my hand--her front legs between my thumb and forefinger, and her hind legs over my pinky. She was so tiny & delicate, like a little flower. So I named her Petunia.
Petunia is your typical Siamese. When she was a kitten, she fetched toy mice right away--just like a dog. Only I didn't even have to teach her. She did it all herself! And she also would jump from the bathroom sink to the top of the bathroom door, or the top of the shower curtain rod, and walk across. She was so flexible that she could lie on her back, put her hind feet over her head and use her hind feet to push herself over the floor .One of her favorite games was to take a toy mouse up on the bed , drop it down to the floor between the bed and the wall, then jump down, go under the bed, pick it up and bring it back up onto the bed and repeat... Now that she's 15, Petunia doesn't fetch mice anymore. But she will still play with her tail sometimes. In Feb. I moved from Maryland to California. She came with me on the airplane. The security people all crowded around and made a big fuss over her. No one ever asked for her health certificate. On the plane, she cried, especially when there was turbulence, but nobody complained. One of the flight attendants even offered her some milk! Sadly, soon after we got to CA, Petunia was diagnosed with lung cancer. :(....
