I took in a stray kitten, a bobtail. Its an incredibly intelligent cat. It will follow you around constantly and you will find yourself tripping over it as you walk. Its also quite a talker and meows all the time. She loves to lay in my lap and sleep on her stomach, front legs stretched out hanging over one side her back legs over the other side. On the downside she is fairly stubborn and clawed and chewed up rugs and anything else she liked. She would use her charm to try to get her way. If anyone has a Bobtail and can give some advice please e-mail me at Thanks
