We are wondering if our newest family member has "wegie" blood. We got Saami 2 months ago from the pound- he was a stray-found in cold MidWest February- declawed, so we know he had previous owner. He is a big cat in every way-Saami weighs 13,5 lbs, he is very tall, long legs, long body and a tail that goes on forever-it reminds me of baseball bat because it gets bigger towards the end instead of tapering off. He's hair is long and he has a ruff- shorter hair across his shoulders. He has hair growing from his ears and it curves towards the back of the ears, he has long hair between his "toes" and his whiskers curve towards his mouth. He's face is triangular and the eyes are kind of almond shaped and we sometimes call him Brett Michaels because he's blond and has heavy black eyeliner. He also has a very prominet chin. Saami is bright orange with flame shaped M on his forhead- actually from afar he looks almost like a small fox- the tip of his tail is white and he has shortwhite booties. He can be vocal if he wants something.We called him Sammy to go with Shadow~our Main Coon mix but then changed the spelling to Saami-meaning a native resident of Northern Scandinavia- in hopes that he would be a bit "Wegie"
I have a few pictures in his profile but they arent the best to show him off. Saami is a " lapcat" but on his terms-He might jump on your lap, but he might ignore you just as quickly. He would love to go out, but we live in city next to busy street so he has to sty inside, since he can't stand a leash.
