Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization
Posted Jul 11, 2015
My family rescued Sandy from a shelter when she was two months old, and we had her for nine years. She loved all sorts of attention; Sandy couldn’t get enough of my brother and me. As a family with two children, this was perfect because she always had friends to play with. She also loved to play games, whether we would play fetch or hide and go seek. Her intelligence was great, and Sandy was very fond of all the attention we gave her. If you want a pet who doesn’t need a lot of attention, this breed isn’t for you.
She was also an extremely quiet cat, only making noise when delighted or seriously threatened. However, her moments of feeling afraid were few and far between; this breed is known to be easy going, and Sandy in particular was friends with everyone, even the neighborhood dogs!
This breed requires more grooming than some, but the work is absolutely worth it. We had to give Sandy away after a move, but I miss her greatly. This is a fabulous cat for families and people who just want a large interaction with their pets.
