It’s always sad when pets lose their humans, but it’s even more so when they’ve lived pampered lives in super loving homes (you really get used to that kind of treatment, and return it tenfold!). Our dad adopted my housemate, Lovey, and me from TALGV when we were youngsters, so he’s the only real family we’ve ever known. Despite what you might have heard about “tortitude” (a sometimes aloof demeanor some tortoiseshells are known for), we are both very “into” people – especially petting, purring, and snuggling – and want to be the kind of companions you dream of. I’m 9 years old, and pretty settled in my ways so am looking forward to sharing many warm and tender times with another human of my own (and maybe even with my BFF too?).
