Anything that is all her own.
Sharing anything with any other cat, although she'll tolerate the dogs.
Wicker balls filled with catnip, with or without feathers. They're hard to find, but well worth it when you see her rolling about on the floor in total abandon.
Favorite Nap Spot:
She has her own bed, which she loves, but Ralph always steals it. She likes it best when its been freshly laundered and Ralph is nowhere in sight!
Tuna. Chicken. And most varieties of wet catfood.
It's funny, but when we annoy her, we can see the glare, and even joke that her little irritated chirps and mews are kitty swear-words--not too many cats have that talent.
Sophie's first family had her declawed, then didn't like the result, since she rarely used her litterbox properly. Too lazy to retrain her to use her box, they threw her outside, despite the risks. Luckily, Sophie was never severely injured, although she was often picked-on by neighborhood strays and soon developed a dislike for other cats. At the same time, she developed a particular fetish for songbirds, and, as luck would have it, a neighbor happened to be an avid birdwatcher, with a beautiful songbird garden. It only took a few dead birds for the complaints to begin and only a few complaints before Sophie found herself sitting in a vet's office, waiting to be euthanized. Fortunately, we happened to be sitting there beside her owners, who told us the whole story--needless to say, Sophie never saw the veterinarian; she came home with us.
Sophie is a persnickety cat--the kind of cat that convinces many people they don't like cats at all. She's grouchy and irritable and only wants affection on her terms. She expects her own food bowl, her own bed, her own special place. She wont use her litterbox if it smells like another cat and will starve herself rather than share her food bowl with another cat. For her first two years with us, Sophie lived upstairs in our master bedroom, all by herself, because she refused to have anything to do with other cats at all. She's slowly learned that she likes the attention, extra treats, and better views the downstairs provide and she's even willing to tolerate the other cats to have them!
