They say that I have “Tortitude”- that’s a specific set of behaviors that other kats like me (with a tortoiseshell coat) have.
Well, they’re right! And I’m proud of it!
I’m independent, quirky, somewhat quick tempered, very intelligent (if you don’t believe it, ask me), very sweet, but also I pick one human that is my favorite…and I’m pretty much scared to death of just about everyone else.
I am also what they call very talkative, which is one of the things my humans love most about me.
I don’t meow much, but I trill constantly….when I hear my human calling me, when I jump up onto her lap, (or the couch, or the kat tree), when I want her to wake up, and any other time that I think she may like hearing it.
If she picks me up at times when I want to be left alone, I squeak, or growl. When she clips my claws or wipes my eyes, I grunt and growl and smack things with my tail.
Fortunately for me, the humans find these things very amusing and endearing. But I also have no trouble letting them know when I don’t like something or when someone is irritating me (especially the baby human).
Even though I have only one person who is my favorite, I am fiercely loyal and devoted to her. I am very possessive and protective of the one I choose. I don’t like it when she goes out and I cry until she comes home.
But when she comes home, I can hardly contain my excitement! I greet her at the door with my tail straight up and quivering (the greatest compliment I can offer)!
They also say I act like royalty….
Here’s the thing-I don’t have to ACT like royalty. I AM royalty!
