||Eight years old|
||Cape Town, South Africa|
is a one-of cat. She sees people as laps and a new visitor is not
welcome until Kelly has settled on their lap for a catnap. She is also
very vocal. On arriving home from work, Kelly is always the first to
meet and greet me with a very direct meaw. People often think she is
crying for food, where in fact she is simply saying hello or yelling
"Sit down, I want to sleep on your lap!"
Kelly enjoys warm summer afternoons in the sun and is normally found
lazing around on the stoep, stretched out in her usual pose. A strange,
but favorite, pastime of this crazy cat is to rub her teeth against
people's toes. No-one knows why she does this, but she seems to derive
hours of enjoyment from it.
Don't mess with this cat though. Sometimes she gets the evil eye. We
still don't know why, but often her eyes go black as pitch and a look of
dread crosses her face. Given her space, she soon cools down and forgets
about whatever it was. Some say she senses ghosts, but I say she's just
full of non-sense and the slightest thing ticks her off, especially when
she's trying to sleep.
