    All my cats have been adoptees, rescues or happenstance kitties, and in my opinion they have much better personalities than many of the purebred cats owned by friends. I have had two Egyptian Mau rescues, which I find odd. They are the sweetest, smartest cats and why someone would abandon one is beyond me. It is easy to keep accumulating them as they show up through whatever powers control these things. Currently we have Gio, the giant Russian Blue-esque king of the castle. He rules over the three girls – Sagira and Akela, half-Mau sisters found by a rescue group at birth and bottle fed; and India, a recent foundling in a friend’s barn. The tricky bit has been getting the colony to accept each other and not to gang up on one or the other. Sagira, the stripey half-Mau, seems to have the most trouble with this. That sort of behavior is odd for a Mau.

      Thanks for sharing. I believe cats, like people, come into our lives for a reason. And why people would leave such beautiful, almost or total purebreds, behind in shelters is unfathomable. But if they didn’t, we wouldn’t be blessed with some lovely kitties that have become a part of our lives.

    I loved reading about the arrival of all your cats. I have way too many to share here but basically all of my cats have “found” me except my Oriental Shorthair, Ruka. I bought him because I wanted a pedigreed show cat. He was a good show cat for awhile but he drove the rest of my household crazy with his energy so I had to find another home for him. It was very hard.

    Since then I’ve always believed that it is best to let nature take its course. I let my pets find me rather than going out to look for them. And believe me, a lot of my friends have tried to even give me another pedigreed cat. I just can’t do that again.
