Our next door neighbour had to go to nursing home and we took care of her cat for a couple years to her passing(20years). My husband suggested to go to check rescued cats and so we did. Only one cat, Pixie, was there and she headbatted my hand stretched in the hide. She didn't show herself out at all but I decided then on the spot. She was the one! We didn't see her at all till we came home. She sat on my lap that night and has been so happy and never looked back. She still has habit of biting when she gets too excited but that adds to her charm. She has been such a sook and we are inseparable now. Hard to write this when she is sitting on my lap!
