Me! Me! Me!

Miss Kitty, who is a beautiful, fluffy-looking Norwegian Forest Cat, wrote all about her breed history. I do not have the long breed history that she does. Her ancestors were adventurers! What fun! Miss Kitty even has her own avocado tree to climb.

I'm a Snowshoe Siamese, which is a recent (1960s) breed - originally a cross between a Siamese and an American shorthair, and now we're all offspring of that cross. I have Sealpoint ears and tail, but my feet are white. My eyes are blue like my Siamese side but I don't talk as loud as my Siamese relatives. My white areas are whiter than any Siamese. There are several articles about my breed all over the Internet and even a club for our people.

My people rescued me from a place I did not like when I was one year old. The people I used to have were not very nice to me, so I'm still really afraid of strangers.

One more very important thing about me: my birthday is coming up. I will be nine years old on January 31st. I don't think I look a day over two. Right? Right?!

How cross where they? Peeved, or breathing fire mad?

You are gorgeous, regardless. Young and witty and royal, as a queen should always be.

Purr and a lick on the ear.
