Arrival Story:
I already had Bean ( p?j=t&i=59104 ) and was looking for another cat to keep him company. I found on a small cat rescue in Los Angeles that had Bean's evil twin sister -- Rosemary. Both cats had purebred Himalayan mothers and alley cat fathers. Rosemary had stunning blue eyes. We went to meet her and she bit and scratched both of us, being pretty scared and still quite feral. We brought her home anyway, and, after many tribulations, she is settling down into more refined ladyhood.

Rosemary is both very smart and very shy. When someone knocks on our door there is a dual cat race -- Bean runs TOWARDS the door, Rosemary rockets AWAY from it. If you pick up a cat carrier she knows she's in for a car ride, which she hates, and will make a dash for under the bed. However, she is also one of the most affectionate cats I have ever met. She wakes us up in the morning, purring and wanting to be petted. She also likes to lick people that she likes, seeming to think that our human water baths are stupid. She loves catnip and especially loves chasing catnip bubbles. You can win her friendship immediately if you are quiet and play with her feather teaser -- even in the most reclusive hiding spot, she can't resist coming out to bat the feathers and likes to jump around, even doing somersaults, to chase them.
