Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)
Posted Sep 24, 2015
The first pet I had was a cat- a Turkish angora that parents took in when I was six. She had the softest fur and the sharpest claws :-)
Just like most cats Rache was not easily trained- I guess in a way she trained us. She was not social, however, as time passed by she got used to us and would seek our company whenever the whole family got together. She was not the type of cat that loves being cuddled- even on the contrary- she did not like to be touched much and would start grooming herself each time after we had picked her up and hugged her.
Despite the fact that she clearly was not a fan of humans, she did not get scared or hide away when we had guests- sometimes she even showed up and spend some time with friends of the family.
She didn't require any extra grooming and was pretty healthy her entire life- we took her to the vet only once in a while for a regular check up.
