Aw, thank you so much, CML. Both for your prayers for Jade and your kind words. I think you give me too much credit though. I've not posted and helped on the forum nearly as much as I used to, or YOU have. But thanks. Yeah, Jade has struggled to eat today. She *wants* to eat, smells the food, kinda circles it, but her tummy must hurt. She has IBD. It's either that or she's feeling the cancer on her nose...or her ulcerated lower eyelid...or her poor rotten teeth are hurting her...or could be all of it. I suspect if she continues to act like she has today, we will be putting her down in less than 6mos if not sooner. I'm so sad and dread the day.
Well, the first kitty I rescued (Tuna) was a long haired tortie who had a sweet loving, independent nature I always loved about her. Kestrel and Hildiekatt had that, too. Kessie was always so laid back, like a ragamuffin, but she had an inner steel that came out when necessary.
We've had 3 greys (Victoria, Calamity and Chesapeake) who all had a similar nature, liking to be in your company on their terms, always near you, but not on you.
It does seem that different colors as well as breeds have a nature that goes with...
But torties do seem to have an interesting personality, more complex in some ways than other kitties.
