    When we brought her home, she was a 3lb ball of fluff with ears and paws too big for the rest of her body...

    They're spoiled little furballs, I'll tell you hat.

    Ysa is very much a lap kitty, and likes to cuddle. She's still pretty shy, though, and will usually hide when anyone not Mr. Cajun or I comes through the door...even parents and close friends, who are always coming and going. She likes to play with feathers, foil balls, and anything that dangles. During the day, her favorite perch is Mr. Cajun...now that he's broken her of trying to play with his computer while he's working (she used to chase the cursor across the screen); in the evenings, she hangs out with me. She's convinced that the fish are her play-buddies.

    Honey will only sit in one lap (my dad's), and is very much Queen of All She Surveys; once she's put her paw on it, it's hers, no matter who it belongs to. Doesn't matter if it's a toy, your clothes, your bed... Yet for all her attitude, she's a very empathetic kitty; if you're sick or crying, she'll curl up next to you til you're better. She likes stuffed animals, boxes, and plastic flippy rings. And she mostly ignores the fish, always has, even though she'll normally chase anything that moves. We share custody of Honey with my parents, who originally didn't want a cat but fell in love with her anyway; she spends part of her time with me, part with them, and thinks it all some great adventure travelling from house to house and seeing different people.

    Oh they are just precious and beautiful! Our cat Squeek was similar to Honey, not a lap cat but very empathetic also, he would not leave your side if sick or upset, even if the husband and I were having a discussion and raised our voices he would sit between us and meow loudly.
    Ysa sounds like she is quite the entertaining kitty and would make your day better with all that playfulness

    And they know it!

    Honey's pretty quiet, though she'll bounce herself off doors if she wants attention and doesn't think you're moving fast enough. Ysa's got more than enough meow for the both of them, though. And neither one really understands the concept of boundaries, and that there are places kitties shouldn't go, no matter how much we've tried to teach/encourage proper behavior...

    Pretty girls!...you commented how Ysa looks like our Bashi a bit, now I see the resemblance!

    Our cats stay outside unless it's very cold out side, but the one male, Drake, is the only one who winds up on high shelves and other places he shouldn't be...like on my tank!

    Yes, very pretty girls. Our two cats are very shy as well, more so since we moved 14 years ago, they are indoor cats. No killing birds or rodents outside or being killed by coyotes, hawks, or cars. At 17 and 19 they don't do the shelves, though my tuxedo used to jump on you from refrigerators and would climb shelves too and the calico used to climb the rafters in the basement in the current house we live in, and I think she fell from the loft and broke her tail too, she has had a kinked tail since shortly after we moved here. Our two Pampered Princesses.

    These two are mostly indoor kitties, it was part of the contract we signed with the rescue. Maine Coons are closer in breeding to wild cats, though, I think; she certainly behaves more like a small bobcat or such at times, and she's definitely more of a hunter than Ysa. So we ended up having to leash-train her so she could have some outside time and travel with us on our road trips. Though often she walks us more than we walk her... We're working on this with Ysa, but she doesn't seem to have the same need for being outside as Honey; when the door opens she's more likely to flee from the door than run toward it...
