My Rotten Roxy

I've had Roxy for a little over five years. I love her more than words can say. She is so much fun to have around. She's very affectionate and serves as my alarm clock. She has no problem walking all over me as I sleep to get me up. Roxy lets me hold her and kiss her some, but only on her terms. She's quick to just jump away as if to say, "Enough kisses for you, mom."

My Roxy can also be a little devil from time to time. The biggest no-no for her is scratching. She loves to scratch the carpet. Of course, she pulls up some of the fibers from time to time. One solution that I use is to glue the plastic caps over her clipped claws. They work great. You can see that she is sporting some blue ones in her picture.

If you are thinking about getting this breed, you will receive so much love and joy. Go for it!
