Here's a yarn and a pussycat you'll fall in love with. Not only is she beautiful, but we're told she's sweet, feisty, and 110% loving.
Spooky is a gorgeous brown tabby her owners call their "tiny tiger" due to her vivid black stripes against her grey-brown fur.
What captured our hearts here at Yarnmarket are her beautiful green eyes which we're told are the color of fresh Thompson seedless grapes.
Spooky is one of those cats that just appeared out of nowhere to join a family. About five years ago, her owner's children were in the back yard playing. One ran inside and said, "Come see this cat." Kristi went out, and there was the future Spooky, playing right along with her kids, and chasing butterflies through the garden.
She was young, thin, and homeless.
Spooky was immediately brought indoors and fed, and the rest is history. Here's one pussycat who knew a good thing when she saw it. She had found a home of loving cat fanciers, plenty of food, toys, and cuddly blankets. Let's just say in her mind, Spooky hit the jackpot!
Since her arrival, Spooky has become the queen bee of the house, even with the addition of two younger cats. Spooky's rules are THE rules, and she administers them with a heavy but loving paw. There is not a cat treat that she won't try; and if you're human, you come with a lap, which she will promptly try out when you sit.
Like any pussycat worth its tuna, Spooky "helps" Krisi with her knitting by sitting on the yarn to keep it from unraveling.
As highly regarded and pampered as she may be, Spooky does not consider housework beneath her. She likes to help unpack groceries by digging through every bag until the cat food or treats are found. At that point, we suspect she believes her work is done.
We're told that Spooky has learned to use the toilet. Yes, the human toilet! But we do wonder if she flushes.
Spooky's very lucky owners say they wait for the day when they come home and find that Spooky has prepared dinner for them.
Congratulations on being selected as a Yarnmarket Fabulous Feline, Spooky!
