first baby / summer 2006
Our sweet kitty girl. I desperately wanted a Siamese for as long as I can remember. My mom's friend Linda had one when I was a child, and I thought they were the coolest cats in town. I finally got my wish while in graduate school, and she quickly stole our hearts with her crazy deep meow, running in circles like a nut job, and endless snuggle/ purr sessions.
These days she has to endure some tail pulling and poking, but she also gets lots of kisses and piles of stuffed animals to nap on. Of course she does try our patience, waking up at 5AM and crying for food, scratching up the couch so often that I have become an expert in weaving the thing back together (sigh), and sleeping on my head every night... but we love her and her stinky fish breath to pieces.
