Ewe's not Fat!

This is Stormie.  She's my baby-girl.

She is a Tonkinese kitty (a Burmese Siamese mix).  She is 5 1/2 years old and she was the runt of her litter.  When we went to the breeders to pick up her brother, Aubie, we couldn't leave without her too.  She was an adorable little alien kitty!



It is funny how different 2 cats can be when they are from the same litter.  Here is a pic of them with their sibling that was adopted by another family.


Stormie craves love.  She likes to be held.  She likes to sit in our laps, but she loves our shoulders even more.

She enjoys anything that provides her with our undivided attention.  When I'm working during the day she will sit on my desk and stare at me with these sad little eyes to tell me that I'm not paying attention to her.  She looks so sad.  Look at her sad eyes...

She is very loving and will purr pretty much whenever we touch her.  Although, if she wants love and we aren't giving it to her she will bite our elbows.  Not hurtful bites, but annoying little bites.  Unlike most kitties, she has never scratched us out of anger or showed any anger towards us at all.  She is our sweet little girl.

Stormie also loves to play and she can become very jealous if we play with her brother.  She doesn't like to play at the same time her brother is playing.  She wants us to ignore him and play with her instead.  If we play with Aubie she will either run away and sulk or she will get on him and do this...

Lately, I've noticed that she is gaining some weight.  We call her "big girl" and I hope she doesn't know what we are saying or it may give her a complex.  Poor baby.

Growing up my grandmother had a little plaque on her wall with a cartoon sheep and on the top of it, it said, "Ewe's not fat, Ewe's fluffy".  I always loved it and thought it was so funny.  So, in Stormie's defense, I tell her "Ewe's not fat, Ewe's fluffy" so she feels better about her weight gain.  And she purrs to let me know she understood and she loves me.

This is Stormie lounging on the couch last night in all her fluffiness...
