She can easily jump onto high was interesting to read that Nebelung's are outstandingly good at high jumping because Pearl is definitely good at this.


Arrival Story:
In 2005, I happened upon her Humane Society web page a couple of months after a previous cat of mine had gone to the Rainbow Bridge and I did a double-take cuz she resembled him so much. I tried to promote her adoption but wound up adopting her myself.

Pearl is a wonderful lapcat and I wouldn't change a thing about her. Her preferences that volunteers at the Humane Society noticed are still true, i.e. she likes her head scratched more than her body. She doesn't like to be combed. She likes petting when she is in the mood and for her own chosen length of time. She whips her tail back and forth when she is displeased. She almost got put to sleep at the Humane Society for being "grumpy" and elderly, but she is not grumpy - she just has preferences. In the cage at the shelter, she simply sat and faced the back. So terribly sad. The reason her previous owners surrendered her was because she got into crib and "scratched" the grandson. I know her so I realized that she was snuggling not scratching. She will touch me with her claws above my eye when I'm lounging and it is to request petting. The dew claw would be especially problematic for a toddler because it can touch the face and she has no control over the dew claw. A toddler has no ability to protect itself so of course there should be good supervision of all innocents. I came to learn that the family had adopted a new dog so I believe that entered into their decision to ditch the cat they had had since kids discovered her as a tiny kitten in the cold and whom they had decided at that time to bring into their home for nine years :-(

Pearl passed away with the help of her vet June 18, 2015. She was 19 years old. She had Chronic Renal Insufficiency. She was cheerful at all times since she got out of the pound 10 years ago after her first family dumped her. She was friendly to all visitors and was totally able to co-exist happily with cats and dogs. She was intelligent, curious, cuddly, fabulously devoted to me and I will miss her.

Happy Birthday to me!
