Urchin had a rough start in life. She was about two weeks old when I found her; her mom and all of her siblings suffered a quick passing due to a truck tire. I found her crying plaintively late at night, hiding in a pile of wood on the side of the road.
She's a beautiful, petite kitty with a running motor for a purr. She loves cuddling up in my lap, but only my lap. She's as single-owner a cat as I've ever seen.
Urchin eschews cat nip and most cat toys. I generally interpret that as her viewing them as silly.
But when I break out her brush, she's as lovey-dovey as they come.
One would think she gets into playing with strings or other stuff that simulates things most cats would be into, but she's not like most cats because her mom passed when she was so young, her "Cat Perspective" is a bit skewed. So her favorite toy?
She's my little girl and I'll love her forever and I'll hear and feel her little purr-motor revving in my mind long after she's passed. She's 11 now and starting to move a little bit more slowly.
It's ok. she's still my little Tiger!
