Persia was born in 1989 at a friend's home. She was half feral, mostly an outside cat when we fell in love with her and, at our friend's insistence, brought her home. At that time we already had Baby and Tiger. She was a little spitfire and is our best mouser. We took her to the vet and got a clean bill of health, declawed and spayed her and settled down to make her a contented indoor cat. We succeeded. She is our schizo-cat as she can be sweet one moment and, in the blink of an eye, a brass-plated witch. She is the prettiest and most photogenic of our cats.
Persia truly loved our old english sheepdog, Lilly, and would sleep curled up against Lilly's tummy. They would groom each other (quite a sight to see an OES spoojing a cat!) and chase each other throughout the house. Being an intelligent, thinking cat, Persia would devise myriad ways to flummox Lilly with great success and much to our delight.
Persia has an insatiable curiousity. When she was wee, we babysat a potbelly piglet for a few days until a friend could present him to his family as a Christmas present. The piglet pretty much ignored Persia, but Persia followed the piglet everywhere. When they were on the couch together, Persia would reach out with her paw and pet the piglet! Here's our girl lounging. Idiot child loves to be high up and hanging out. When we were in the process of moving, she promptly leapt up onto the overturned table and roosted on the very end of the table leg. It almost looks like she's suspended in air. She was seriously bummed when we turned the table upright again! Ain't that a lovely mug shot? Persia is a great help when it comes to packing anything. She is a real hands-on supervisor. *sigh*
