the talent to remain unperturbed regardless of the chaos surrounding her; the ability to rule the house without seeming to; the power to make you feel like the most important person in world


Arrival Story:
I often tell Tarquinia that I spent 8 years looking for her - which means I was looking for her before she was born. I eventually met up with a wonderful breeder who was looking for the perfect home for a retired show cat (that's my girl!) who had gotten rather withdrawn and anti-social. At the time I didn't have any pets or spend long hours away from home, so we agreed to give it a try. In no time at all Tarquinia decided to adopt me; she has been ruling my household (with all the changes, additions, and upheavals) ever since.

Lives Remaining:
4 of 9

Forums Motto:
the queen acknowledges your presence

Favorite Pets::
fiddler crabs! She will sit for hours outside the tank, just watching; she never touches the glass. Her second favorite pets are the various fish in our aquariums - she'll lay on the cat tree and just watch. Kitty TV, I guess, lol.
