Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)

Ronni is the calmest and quietest of all my cats. She doesn't like to stray too far from home preferring instead to stretch in the summer on the roof of the garage or under some bushes in the gardens. Now, when winter is on its way, her favorite resting place is the TV adapter. When she gets inside, this is the stop where she would curl up. I've tried to persuade her to sleep somewhere else, but she is stubborn.
Otherwise, you can't tell there is a cat inside - she spends most of her time grooming and sleeping, and she generally amuses herself. But if you are eating something while she is inside the room- well, it won't be a quiet meal. She would meow, roll on the floor to look super cute, and stretch her paws to grab the food off your fingers.
Roni is playful, but she would not run around the house and knock things down or try to climb on the window sill. She prefers to play with toy mice - the fluffier the better - and she could practically destroy a mouse in a few play session. I can't say that she is overly affectionate - she is certainly not a lap cat. When I pick her up, she has thing killing look that clearly says - I don't like it, put me down. But during the night, she would sometimes come into my room through the terrace, and she would curl up in my feet to sleep.
Caring for Roni is relatively easy, but she gets hairballs from time to time. I had never seen a cat hack a hairball before her, so let me tell you, it doesn't look at all like a ball, but something that belongs in the litter box.
Nevertheless, Roni is a joy to have around the house and yard.
