Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)
Posted May 13, 2014
Adopted from a friend who had to move with work, our pixie bob, Kali, can only be described as loud, proud and in charge. Perfectly content to laze over books, laptops and important papers, she’ll loudly remind you that she is the most important and most deserving of your attention, no matter what you might think. She’ll also remind you when she needs to be fed. Or sometimes when it’s been too many minutes since you last looked at her.
A lap-cat who enjoys belly rubs, Kali’s really friendly with anyone who will give her a pet, and will tolerate even rough handling from small children. There’s nothing that will cause her to claw or bite (maybe growl a little, which sounds dangerously like a much larger cat with much larger claws), which makes her great with kids.
Shedding isn’t as much of a problem as with our other cats, and she requires very little grooming (probably because of a tongue that’ll give you road rash if she decides you could use a little cleaning too). She does not like other cats, but this seems to be more of a personality trait than breed.
