My view of Spooky in my lap...
I had a 12 year old cat that looked just like the pictures here of Arthur. He unfortunately passed a few days ago while checking his territory outside our home. A couple neighborhood dogs came along and well you know the rest. 🙁 He was a very loving and affectionate cat that "talked" to me all the time. I miss him dearly and have turned to the internet for comfort and to educate myself more about him and my surviving cat companion Casper.
I was looking through cat breeds and almost cried when I found this website. I never realized that Spooky was a certain breed, but by the looks of these pics he was definitely a Tiffany/Chantilly.
I can't think of many times that I could sit without a long visit from him planting his thin elegant, body in my lap--wiping his mouth across my arm, as many times as I would allow, to let everyone know I was "his".
I have to put a pillow or blanket in my lap now when I watch T.V. since he no longer holds throne in that spot. This helps me with his passing and keeps the tears at bay. I couldn't have asked for a more affectionate and caring companion... he is missed terribly.
I was greeted almost every morning in the bathroom with a meow and rub on my legs. I would speak back asking him how he was and again responded to with another meow. This would go on as long as I would continue to talk and we weren't interrupted. How I miss him.
Thanks so much for sharing with us and I feel much better in knowing I can find another cat like him if I ever want to have the same kind of companion again... I can't imagine wanting any other kind of cat.
