You can’t miss me in this room, I am the lady with the deep blue eyes.

You can generally find me on one of these really soft and comfy kitty beds. Of course, I would much more prefer a lap, but you have to do with what is available at times.

I can be quite a talker, after all it is proper to chat with guests, especially if I want to get some petting. I can get quite vocal if one of the other cats thinks they’re going to get in front of me. I may be delicate, but I am not afraid to voice my opinion.

Found as a stray, there isn’t much to tell you of my life prior to getting here. It’s been kind of tough competing with all the youngsters, not that I am that old, but you know it takes a special family to see that we, mature cats, have as much to offer and sometimes even more.

I am on a special diet and, oh, before I forget, you have to announce yourself in order to be led to my room. All you have to do is ask to meet me.

Just give me a chance to show you how much love I have for you.
