|Sophie being nice. She isn't always this nice!|
|My photography skills were apparently horrible at this time in my life.|
The rainbow pinwheel quilt currently covers my bed at my mom's house. Well it is now the cat bed. Sophie and her friend Elsie (for L.C., or "Little Cat") like to sleep there!
Sophie is my baby, but I can't have cats in my apartment so she lives with my mom. Sophie came to live with me when she was just a kitten about 10 years ago. I worked in a pizza shop with her original owner and she was moving and couldn't have a cat. I already had an old cat, but begged and begged to take Sophie and eventually mom gave in. She must not have been properly weaned because she loves to nest and purr and knead and then suck on her tail!
She has has many nicknames... Sophie. Sophus Minimus (kitten). Sophus Maximus (preggo). Bitro (she is a biter). Fangs (did I mention she bites?). Due to her temper, she is sometimes known as the Bitch Cat. She loves to talk to me! Yes I am a crazy cat lady, but we meow to each other and she loves it!

She is certainly an independent kitty though! She will let you know when she's had enough and it is time for you to let her alone. It starts with a tail swish. Then a growl. Then a little nastier growl. Then Bitro makes an appearance. And she's got some sharp claws! She also hates it if you pick her up and hold her like a baby.
Once you know what she doesn't like, she's pretty easy to get along with! Gee, I wonder if it is true that pets take after their owners...
