adopted Raven when she was four years old. She was shy and a bit nervous but
we could tell she was a sweetheart. She has become a sweet, affectionate girl
who enjoy cuddling. Raven loves to play chase with her human dad. As you can
see in the photo, when the light is just right, she has the most gorgeous gold eyes.
Raven shares the same human mom as Barney, who was Pet of the Day on August
We entered the cats' living room at the local SPCA and within a couple
minutes there was a beautiful black cat trying to crawl into my purse. I had
to laugh because the cat was much bigger than my purse, but determined to get
into it. I picked kitty up and put her on my lap, where she quickly settled
in for a nap. We had our new family member! Raven was four years old and had
been at the shelter over four months when she chose us. I think she knew that we
would give her the calm, quiet home she needed. We were inspired to name her
Raven because of her soft, shiny black fur. We're also amazed at how gold her
eyes appear when the light hits them just right.
Raven is a bit shy, but she's very affectionate once she gets to know
someone. Her favorite activities are batting balls around the house and
"stalking" her dad during a game of chase. She has one behavior that none of
my other cats has ever done - she goes around the house searching at the base
of the cabinets for spider webs. For some reason, she enjoys eating them.
