so, we finally found Maggie, My daughter named her and is claiming her for her own. I told her that means she is in charge of the vet visits etc. She looks like a bandit, which would have been a good name if she were a male.
Her markings are beautiful, she is white & black...not black & white. She is the fastest cat/kitten I have ever seen in my life, and she's been nicknamed white lightening. She also has the greatest sense of smell of any animal I ever known. she can be sound asleep upstairs in my daughter's room, and if someone downstairs has ANYTHING edible, she is down the stairs and on that person's lap or shoulder in the blink of an eye. We have finally got her trained to stop trying to climb onto the food/ and or plate...OR put her head in your mouth while eating, LOL Now she just sits as close to the food as she can and watches every bite going into the mouth. she likes to sleep on the neck of whoever she is sleeping with or as close to it as possible. She also deliberately go under the covers to sleep. NO other cat I have owned has done this. (but I do know that cats do it, it is just my first experience with it)
without further adieu; Maggie:
Playing with feathers on a string :)
now settling in for a nap:)
