I got Pippin and her littermate Merry when they were just kittens and every day with them has been great. They were shy at first, but lots of patience and snuggles quickly warmed them up to us. Pippin is the life of the party now--very affectionate, very vocal, and very protective of my family. She's endlessly entertaining and good when you need a hug. The only downsides are the occasional bit of cat fur and waking up half off the bed in the middle of the night. Cats may not look very large, but give them an inch on a mattress and they will take a mile.
