Acquired: Worked with pet (didn’t own)
Posted Sep 18, 2014
I lived with Sally for about two years - she belonged to my ex-partner - and I got to know her very well during this time. Initially, it took some time to gain her trust, because she was exceptionally attached to my ex and not sure what to think of me. After a few months, however, she gradually began to come over to me, sit in my lap, interact with me, etc. We became good friends.
Sally was not the easiest cat; she was an Alpha Cat who was very dominant with other cats and did not at all like to interact with people she didn't know. On the other hand, however, she was quite loving with those she knew and trusted, very intelligent (she could not be fooled and quickly understood situations) and had beautiful fur that she generally did a good job keeping clean by herself and that needed to be shaved only once a year (which a vet will do).
Basically, I would recommend this cat to everyone. I love her and miss her!
