Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization
Posted Oct 18, 2017
I adopted Suki 10 years ago when I was in college. I had moved away from the ranch I grew up on and went away to a big scary city. While I was really loving the change, I really missed the animals that were constantly around me before. So I got Suki as a rescue kitten. She was amazingly agile and frisky. She would do back flips for her toys and she even played fetch! There was nothing she enjoyed more than fetch. Over the years she quieted down and became a quiet, happy, cuddle on your lap sort of cat. She has never been ill, she has always had a habit of coming in at dusk, she is not a hunter (she did go through a period of hunting but I discouraged it as best I could) and she is just the most compatible cat I have ever been around. The one thing about her is that she is slightly cross-eyed. I do not think this has affected her negatively in her life; in fact I think it is the reason why she comes in before dark, which is an excellent feature in a cat! So many cat people I know spend hours every evening calling, coaxing, and waiting for their darn cat to come inside. When the cat refuses to come in the owners spend a sleepless night worrying and missing their cat's comforting presence. It has got to be so stressful! I could be wrong, but I'm secretly glad she is slightly crosseyed.
