Best cat Ever

Honestly, I lucked out.

Velcro is incredibly tolerant, and will permit indignities like being held upside down, or flipped over and ruffled, and she lets anyone play with her feet or clip her nails. She can be taunted into attacking - but pretty much only by me, or someone she knows well, and will grab with all four paws, claws barely out, and bite just hard enough not to break the skin, gnawing and purring at the same time. She plays chase with anyone who will run away or after her, dog or human, and if you sit down long enough for her to pretend it's her idea, she'll come sit in your lap, kick out any sketchbook or entertainment, arrange your lap to her comfort, and occasionally try to climb into whatever you're wearing (or just stuff her face into your armpit). She comes when called, and doesn't yowl or meow except when it's meal time and someone gets too close to the food cabinet (in which case, you'd swear she was part Siamese). She purrs, and cuddles even if it's your idea, and has a gorgeous, soft, short, mostly non-allergenic coat, and long expressive tail that's nearly always straight up in the air. She is just barely snotty and independent enough to remain a cat, and is just exactly sweet enough to be the perfect pet.

I just had to say that, as I am being weighted down by her purring mass right now, and I haven't written about her in a while.
