    No, it’s not a can of Lubricating Penetrant Spray that I obtained. This was a small, but potent package involving a 3,000 mile round trip, but it was worth it. As I write this, there is a 10 week old Lynx Point Siamese kitten lying on my chest.

    She rode for two solid days and did not complain, spending most of her time on my lap, snoozing. She was perfectly behaved and flawless in her litter box use. In a little over 48 hours together, she has bonded and seeks out my company. A friend dropped over today and she went to greet them, but kept me in sight the whole time. So, my feline companionship needs are met and we’re off to a great start. Best of all, she’s a good talker. Most of the time, if I call her name, she responds with a soft a soft meow and then purrs at the pleasure of having been paid a bit of attention.

    Congrats Mark, that's a looker, but is she a player? :)

    I dunno, but she did try to get a drink of my Bailey’s Irish Creme last night. :)

    I thought it stood for NEW LES PAUL STANDARD DAY.

    I agree.

    Infinitely more valuable than a Les Paul. :)

    I had a Siamese cat once, and their markings are absolutely gorgeous. I'm glad she's worked her way into your heart already!

    The Lynx Point markings are striking. She’s young enough that her pointing is still developing, but even at this stage there are some beautiful combinations of colors and the patterns are gorgeous.

    I had a blue point Siamese up until about 12 years ago. She had been my girlfriend's cat since they were both just wee. I LOVED that cat! she was teeny tiny and all she ever wanted to do was cuddle up with you wherever you were. She passed away at the ripe old age of 21 and I still miss her sometimes, even though I've had several animals since. They are such great pets. Enjoy your new best friend!

    I had a cat I took in, after she had lived as a stray, and she was the most affectionate animal I had ever seen. When she became terminally ill I asked the veterinarian how to find similar traits in another cat and he surprised me by telling me that, in spite of being pure black, she was almost certainly half Siamese.

    On the strength of that recommendation I decided to look for a Siamese and it seems to have been a perfect choice. Little Lynn does not let me out of her sight and she’s a very calm and comforting companion. I’m really taken with her.

    Just can’t pass up an opportunity to be snarky, can we? Of course, informed persons would know that gut strings came from sheep, not cats.

    I'm actually a massive cat lover, and help out at the local Cats Protection League.

    I just lost a cat to cancer, I'm afraid my sense of humor has yet to recover.
