(Ft. Lauderdale, FL)
I got my cat in June of 2005; she was 3 years old.. I saved her from a family that could not keep her because they already had 2 cats (mom & son) that would not accept her nor did they like her.
So this poor cat was stuck in the utility room of the house. I was happy to take her. As I never had a cat and was always a dog person I never found out what kind of cat breed she was.
Her previous owner was nice enough to give all her toys and vet records, but nothing indicated her breed.
I love my cat... she's not too needy, in fact she's quite independent, like me... but she does know when to wake me and when to tell me she's glad to see me.... I have, over the years, tried to find out her breed, not even my vet knew with certainty.
After days and days of looking at different breeds on this website..and years of literature I have purchased.... I have concluded that she is in fact a NFC!
How could I have missed it!!?? She has all the characteristics of this breed, and she's gorgeous...just like your photos show.....
I may not be an expert... but I'm sure that she is!! Thank you so much for helping me find out more about my baby girl! i love her even more than I could ever think I would... (being a former dog owner).
I am the lady living with a cat - and i don't mind it a bit, she's my family!
