My experience with my orange american short hair can best be described by his vet the first time I brought him in as a kitten. I couldn't understand why he would run around all night meowing-- he was healthy, he had food, he had water, we played all day-- what could he want? The vet told me "If you didn't want a fat, loud, eccentric, weirdo cat you shouldn't have gotten an orange one" and she was RIGHT. He's grown to 23 lbs despite constant yo-yo dieting, and meows non-stop. He's my buddy and follows me around the house for face-pettings, often acting like a dog and greeting me at the door. I love having him around, but I don't think I've had a solid night's sleep since I adopted him!
