that aloof exterior is a need for praise and play. Courageous and
smart, he can also be maddeningly stubborn. He takes the direct
approach to everything, including checking out visitors. Give him
lots of attention when he wants it and space when he wants to be by
himself. And remember, you must earn this cat's love.
 Sensitive is this cat's middle name! The slightest frown on
your brow starts him worrying. He reacts to the emotions and body
language of the people around him and often appears to read your
mind. A meticulous groomer, he also has a set of very fussy taste
buds. The Two kitty needs lots of affection and is happiest when
living with another animal.

long as his favorite human is around.
 The Four cat loves routine, and his life revolves around his
favorite spots in the house, his humans, his toys, and a full dinner
dish. An excellent companion, he likes to be wherever you are, but

get home on time and his dinner is late.
 Adventurous and fickle, the Five cat has more bravery than
sense and ranges far from home if he isn't watched. You must restrict
his freedom to keep him safe from harm. A fenced area gives him the
best protection. He loves to snuggle up beside you, but strictly on
his terms. Be warned: No one ever truly owns this daring and gallant
 Call this cat Sir or Lady Trueheart. Steadfast, loyal and
faithful, the Six cat will be at your side as long as he's sure you
love him. Regardless of his size, he prefers to be in your lap
whenever you sit down. Since he considers himself one of the family,
he'll expect some of what you're having for dinner. This kindly cat
is very tolerant of children.
 The Seven cat is a very discerning animal. Once you've earned
his friendship, he is very affectionate. Naturally curious, he likes
to explore and has a knack for getting into things you've carefully
tucked away. He has definite opinions about those who visit your home
and his judgment about people is downright uncanny.
 although he may appear lazy, mostly he's not asleep -- he's
actually thinking great thoughts. This philosopher of the cat world
expects you to make a fuss over him. He gets cross if ignored but you
can make it up to him with heaps of old-fashioned affection. Like
many humans, he's a pushover for a good meal.
 This cat is a show-off and the center of attention. No matter
how far he ranges out of the neighborhood, he expects you to lavish
him with affection when he returns. Don't be surprised if he brings a
ragged stray with him. When you look into his eyes, you'll swear you
knew him before in some other time and place.
