You know the saying if it fits it ships! We we aren't quite sure where to ship her to but she does fit.

Pearl, is a special kitty, we adopted her almost 2 years ago after I lost my 14 year old calico, Patches to bone cancer.
I have never had a cat like Pearl... Pearl was a little over 3 months old when we adopted her, she was small for her age and had health issues when she was younger. I understand they almost lost her several times before she finally got healthy enough for adoption.....guess she was waiting for me to decide. I lost Patches in August and wasn't sure I wanted another cat so soon. We were only going to look, when I picked her up she rolled with her belly up and began purring...that was it she came home with us. Pearl will still roll over and show you her belly, she loves a good belly rub. Sometimes we jokily call it her pull my finger position......if you get my meaning. I have to watch what foods I feed her she sometimes get a tummy upset.
Pearl knows no stranger which is kind of unusual for a cat. Any stranger or guest coming into the house gets the exposed belly and that please rub my belly blue eyed look. If your a woman with a large bag, you better keep and eye on it or Pearl will be inside of it exploring to her hearts content in no time. After she gets done exploring all the contents of your bag she then decides its a good place for a nap.
Pearl may have been tiny when we got her, the vet said she would be a small cat. Well something happened because Pearl comes in at a whopping 14.9 pounds these days. Mollie, my Yorkshire Terrior only weighs 5.5 pounds! So yeah! My cat is bigger then my dog! LOL! Don't tell Mollie that though she is the boss and Pearl knows it. LOL! They do play chase from time to time and it is a funny thing to behold.
Pearl loves boxes, hench the reason she is in the box in the photo, doesn't matter what size the box she HAS to get in it. I once tossed a freezer bag box in the floor when I was busy packaging fibers. I heard a strange noise a little later only to look and there was Pearl with her head in the box. If a new box comes in she has to inspect it throughly, although she knows if it has stuff in it she has to wait until I empty it before she jumps in and makes herslf a fort. LOL!
When she wants to be feed she walks up to you and reaches out with her paws and lovingly pats you with her paws.It always amazes me that she can do that without her claws coming out. It is a soft gentle pat and then if she is really wanting attention all 14.9 pounds of her will jump up into your lap,OOOHHHF! LOL! Pearl is a special cat! Just ask anyone who has met her!

  1. Pearl reminds me of my Chub. Last week we couldn't find her any where and sure enough we found her all curled up in a box we still have no idea how she could have gotten into. Cats you've got to love them! Your Pearl is sure a cutie!
