Arrival Story: I was visiting a friend who's cat had just had kittens - I didnt choose Prince - he chose me by climbing up onto my lap and then going to sleep on my arm - how could I not take him home???
I am glad I did take him when I did (he was only 6 weeks old) cos 2 weeks later his litter brothers and sisters had died from infected flea bites (they were crawling urgh).
He was the result of a litter brother and sister mating (not a responsible household) and I call him my Siamese/Persian/Moggy cross twice over as his grandmother was a Siamese/Persian and she mated with a local tom and had his parents and he is the image of both of them his mothers size and his father colouration almost exactly (mum was also the same colour). He was orginally called Princess until it was discovered he had things a little girl shouldn't have :-)
Bio: In 2001 he managed to be involved in an accident and we think a car ran over his back leg and as a result he no longer has a hip joint on one side - it was that or make him a 3 legged cat so we had a go with this first and it worked.
