Here's a pic of my Sammy, she's a bit of a geriatric cat...she's a retired top show persian I've had for many years now. She has AWESOME type, back in the day she had many best cat awards. She has a more gentle and reserved type of personality, she is GREAT with the kiddos, always has been. A very quiet personality. She stays in the background most of the time. She's the kind of girl who sleeps pretty much ALL day, and we just see her at night.
She used to be the companion kitty to my Nicky, who passed on early last year. My breeder friend who I used to work with had gotten out of breeding and didn't want to keep Samantha as she didn't get along with Nicky's mom. She got along with Nicky really well (which says a lot, he was such a goofball...and loud
) so she gave her to me. And, they really had a great relationship. I think it was really hard on Sammy when Nicky passed.
Then, there is HEAVEN. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...y/DSCN0885.jpg
Her name is so fitting, as she had to have been sent from above! We adopted her at the end of last year, her personality is just outstanding. She is super loving, playful, outgoing and affectionate. She talks to you...just the right amount of talking
. At night, when I am doing stuff she follows me around (follows DH sometimes too if I am vegging on the couch
). We play with her all the time, and she even makes up her own "toys." She's known for stealing the kids toys and playing with them
. She just is pure joy and being around her just makes everyone smile and feel good. I can't talk about her enough.
When Nicky died last year I was so sad, didn't know if I would ever find another special kindred kitty spirit to share my life with. I was so sad at his loss...he was such an awesome cat that I grieved his loss immensely, it was so tremendous.
: Many months after he died, I pushed myself towards looking for another cat. I sent several emails out to breeders who I knew were reputable, describing my family situation and the personality type Nicky had (which I was looking for a similar outgoing/affectionate/lovable kitty personality). I originally started out looking for a white, but I left myself open to just going for a cat which had a super awesome personality. I found Heaven that way, I waited several months for her (she was raising a kitten), and when she came I was in awe of just how wonderful she is. I admit I still am. I am so madly in love with this cat it's not funny
