Arrival Story:
We were at a pet store and Mina was all alone in her particular cage (the other cage had a dozen kittens). We felt sorry for her, so we asked to see her. She immediately burrowed herself under Eric's chin and started purring. We don't usually buy pet store animals, but she came from a local breeder, which had an illicit liaison between two members of their main breeding pairs (Siamese and American Shorthair). LOL

Mina is very shy and doesn't like new people right away. She is insistent when she wants attention, though, and will headbutt and mew at you until you pet her. It isn't unusual not to see her most of the day. She is very athletic, but doesn't recognize her strengths, so she doesn't jump up on high surfaces like she could. She is the mouser of the house and also loves to go after any insects that fly low enough for her. When petted, she will often go into a loud, "squeaky" purr. She has undergone a major personality change with the death of her friend Luna and our move to Texas (and into my in-law's house). She is demanding a lot more attention and has warmed to my in-law's VERY well. I almost wonder if a shift of affections is occurring (flighty demanding little thing LOL). She is also learning to enjoy the delights of occasional forays outside.
