Charlotte

We chose Charlotte in early 2004 after losing a couple of other long-lived and well loved pets. We needed a young cat who would adapt well to our then-two-year-old daughter. Charlotte is perfect. She is very loving and has tolerated lots of hugs and other expressions of love from our daughter! Last September, we moved from the San Francisco Bay area in California to the suburbs of New York City, and Charlotte made the move just fine. She tolerated the six weeks in a corporate apartment, and really loves the house and yard we're in now. The basement, with all its bugs when we first moved in, was her favorite haunt. Now that the weather is promising to get better, she is beginning to learn her way around outdoors, too. She's a marvelous, soft, purry, loving cat, and we're sure glad we have her. -- Danielle and Robert (Marilynn's son and daughter-in-law)

Charlotte is one GORGEOUS tabby!!! She has the prettiest fur. And her eyeliner and long boots make her look ready for a night on the town. LOL! She looks every bit as sweet as you've described her!

Charlotte is a very pretty girl. She has that sad little expression that cats give you when they want you to pet them. Like they are saying "its been a whole 10 minutes since you snuggled me. I'm so mistreated." It works every time.

i love her long stockings and the expression on her face. i agree w/ karen s. that is the "don't you feel guilty for neglecting me" look.

Charlotte, you are one pretty kitty cat and I love the pad you are laying on. It really compliments you. So glad you made the move from one big city to another big city just fine. Hope you and your family are happy where you are now.
