We adopted Prissy at age 4 and she's been a very sweet and affectionate cat. There's never been a time when we've had her when she wasn't purring. Didn't matter if you touched her or not. If you were in her presence, she purred.
Very soft fur, and plenty of it. Playful even up to her adult years. Prissy was a lap cat in the winter, but only on her own terms.
She never enjoyed being held, but I'm sure that probably had to do with her upbringing, which I've had no knowledge of.
I'm quite sure she was a NFC based on looks and basic temperament. She always enjoyed being touched, petted, and scritched behind the ears and on her chin. She would frequently leg rub with anyone, even strangers. She wasn't shy with people at all.
Prissy was a very healthy cat up till the last month when I found out she had Feline Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, which as I've been reading, turns out to be fairly common in the breed. She was 13.
Despite this, I'm very much considering adopting another NFC. If not for their smooth, silky fur, but for their sweet nature. This cat was even willing to work around my schedule, which changed pretty much from day to day. Such a thing in a cat is rare, from my understanding.
I would recommend this breed to anyone. Just be sure to groom them every now and then, especially in the warmer days of the year.
