Many folks think ALL CATS ARE ALIKE…*hisssssss* and of course we know better. There may not be as many cat breeds, but they are just as unique and interesting as the dogs. And not everyone is aware that there are a few breed tendencies when it comes to kitty personality and temperament.
I’d love to get your input–and please SHARE SHARE SHARE this over the blog-osphere and Facebook and Twitterverse to get pet people’s input.
In the comments section, I’d love for you to state your cat’s breed — if s/he’s a mix, and you know the combo, include that. Or for fun (let’s get REALLY creative) include the color and/or coat pattern and maybe we’ll get some trends of personality linked to coat color/type. And then please describe your cat’s personality. Finally, say whether this an expected personality for the breed.
So for Seren, I’d say she’s a mix (Domestic Shorthair), and a “seal point” wannabe Siamese pattern. She’s confident, dislikes strangers, incredibly devoted/bonded to my husband and me, and talks constantly both with meows and tail-semaphore. The talky bit and pushing cat behavior are a trait of Siamese.
Oh, and she currently has singed whiskers because she got too close to candles a couple nights ago when a storm blew out our electricity. Guess that means she’s “hot stuff,” right?
Your turn! Oh, and if I end up using your quote I’ll include your pet’s name (and yours if you like) in the updated book (if I can ever get the sucker finished)!
Oh, and on another note…maybe you noticed I’ve updated the blog? What do you think? 🙂 The old theme didn’t play nice with a new plugin (check out the BOOK TABLE page). Hope to get all my books added soon–AND include some “recommended” books from colleagues. Feel free to list in the comments some of your favs you think that I should include.
Final note–check out details about the Ebooks For Writers Webinar (tomorrow) plus a free online class here.
