Cow is an American Shorthair whom we still have. This cat has more pride than english royalty. She will sit by the front door and wait and wait for you to open it for her and then when you do she walks away. Then, as you go to shut it, she saunters out like she just then decided to leave. She is so cute and loves to lay in laps and cuddle up. She hated the first time we brought home another cat but as Chicken, Amelia and others grew on her, I can tell she now misses having a furry friend. She angsts sometimes. For example she never used to claw couches or carpet unless she wanted to get in your room, but now she is clawing couches and wicker chair, I think because she misses having another cat around. I can't tell you how it is to train her because she was trained when she... showed up. We leave the front door open in the summer time and she walked in, no collar, no face on any lost posters. She walked in, ate out of the cat's food bowl and then came over and rubbed up against my leg saying "Hi" and she just never left. She is an indoor/outdoor cat and is a perfect companion, especially large families with kids or other pets.
