In other words he tolerates the other humans in the house but has no love lost for us, mainly because we are the owners of the huge black beast , Maggie.
When Maggie was a pup she thought of Sam as a motorized toy. Needless to say he has never forgiven her.
Ten years ago I drove almost to the Alabama border to bring him to the hill as Mimi's Christmas present. At that time there was only one listing of Siamese cats for sale. I called the lady and told her about Mimi always having Siamese cats and I was looking for a replacement for the Sam who had gone to kitty heaven. She had only one male kitty left and she had promised him to a breeder. I thanked her for her time and thought well I might had to Internet search for a kitty. Within the hour, she called back and said she had spoke with the breeder and he said told her to let me have the kitty for the Christmas present. Could I come down and pick him up.
I had to borrow a cage from our vet and then off I went down I65. She had given me perfect directions as I did not miss a turn. This is saying something as I am directional impaired.
It was really pretty country and I enjoyed drive. I located her house and when I stepped out of my car, I was greeted by a herd of dogs. I found out she kept walk ons and helped with shelter animals.
After I sat down , she began to inquire about the family and other pets and I felt like I was interviewing for a corporate job. There was a tiny kitten and it came lovingly up to me and she informed me that was not the kitten for sale and I was rather disappointed. She left the room and i returned with the kitten for sale wrapped in a cloth. I was handed this outraged kitten. He bit at me, and meowed very loudly in protest. I looked at her in alarm as she had this look that her kitten was not leaving with me. I told her quickly I was a dog person and kitten probably sensed this and the kitten was for my eighty year old MIL. She took the kitten while I wrote the check for payment and then I got the cage from the car and placed the fur ball inside. I left quickly before she changed her mind. The kitten meowed all the way to the interstate and then he was quite but as soon as I got off he started his protest again.
At this point in time, I thought "What am I doing?"
When I got home it was love at first sight, he liked his new digs and I believe he was happy the little lady was his owner instead of me.
The kitty justice is he is Top Cat on the hill but not the only cat, as we now have a couple of walk ons we have named Mo and Larry. I guess Curly will be next.
OOPS forgot Mz Kitty next door but she stays in more than she is out.
