She's the only shade a cat should be . Ginger.
She's beautiful, BEVS, you should have her. I can't have another ginger just yet, we are in a rental now and only allowed two pets. Four cars (per 2 bedroom unit), but two pets.

Yeah, I hear that. My daughter would love it but my wife probably wouldn't be impressed.

And that's how I ended up with my third. I told myself that I'd just get him healthy and re-home him. 13 years and 2 country moves later...

That is how we ended up with Dusty. Semi feral stray that I sorted out enough for re-homing and then husband could not part with her because it was love.

The cat that was too scared to come into a house.

Ahem. She is a girl with plenty to say for herself. My boys were never like that much.

I have no idea what may be in the mix. She is quite small and has black boots which husband finds endearing. First cat that is sort of a bit floppy if you pick her up. You can hold her like a baby in arms. She rolls over with her paws in the air if you wiggle your fingers at her. She knows stop and sit - with the hand signals - and several other words including her name .

She arrived already pregnant I believe. First she just sat at the edges of the section watching us and then she took up residence under the house sneaking in to nick Tys food and try to snuggle with him unawares. It took ages to gain her trust and then get her to a vet to be 'sorted' . She is quite timid with anyone except for us and I think she always will be & as RICH notes , she is always wary. The sit on legs is a new thing but one move she thinks is false and that's your lot.

Not sure on her age but she is a young cat given her dexterity even though her dental saw her lose 5 teeth.

She's a lovely cat. I think LiW is right, there has to be some Maine Coon in there, you can see it kind of in her face.

Maine Coon or Norwegian Forest cat perhaps? Beautiful, whatever.
