Ninna






















Ninna (officially Nineveh) is the oft overlooked blue-point Siamese sister of Luxor and Silky. Well, she's not a biological sister, but they all live together. Ninna's the shy one, always hiding in the background, unless she's in my lap like she is right now. Just about everything scares her: noises, new foods, Luxor and/or Silky in one of their rampages through our home, people wearing shoes, people period. Except for my husband and myself, unless we're wearing shoes. Then she hides from us. She's not only shy; she's the one you can never get to take medicine, she's picky about food, she cries all the way to the vet, she's stubborn and she will even put the bitey on us if we're reading and she wants to be petted. Still, we love her. She's a little character, tinier than either Lux or Silky. Her favorite thing is to crawl up me so I'm cradling her in my arms while she hides her face in my hair. She purrs so loud then you can hear her from across the room. Even though she's the oldest of the three, she's still my baby girl. -Elaine

Well, I am sending this comment thru my template preview (blogger dashboard)! And I can't get into any blogspot blogs! So irritating! Anyone else having troubles? I see Jess and Shirley got in! No fair, lol!

Good Morning Fuzz Family!

She may be shy, but she's a beauty.

Lux - Whenever you see an abbreviation in question, just click on KatSpeak under my special links. If you ever see one or have a new one that needs adding, just let me know! FB's are "facial bossums". Some kitties have big ones, Casper for example.

Those are beautiful pictures of Ninna and what a nice story. I enjoyed the part about her loud purrs because right now China Cat is curled up next to me doing the loud purr thing.
