My lilac point Siamese, Dottie
November 19, 2012 - a Monday. My wife said 'we have to take a ride to the Bronx'. Why? I asked. She said 'we need to pick up a gift'.
Well, we live in New Jersey, and traffic is crazy at rush hour ... hmmm! Why is it called rush hour when it moves soooo slow going over the Washington Bridge?
But I did as I was told. We walked up a flight of stairs at a home. The lady said follow me - OK, something heavy to pick up and load in the SUV.
Well! Complete shock ... three, yes three, Siamese kittens. Two had already gone to new homes.
They came in at eight weeks and no more than eight oz wet. I picked up one male (a cutie). Then the female ... love at first sight!
Her name is Dottie, after my mom, who stole my last Siamese 30 years ago. She was a blue seal called Athena and lived to be 22 years young.
Well, Dottie is a character as most kittens are. She will start climbing up my back leg and make it all the way to my shoulders, she thinks she a parrot, no doubt!
She has six dogs and five cats as brothers and sisters; all were rescues to complete that big family and she gets along with all of them, although Diesel the chihuahua is her best friend.
They wrestle like crazy, make the WWE tame in comparison!
