Miss Mavis is around 3 years old and her previous owner had listed her on Craigslist - saying that they didn't have enough time for her. They called her "kitty" and when we got her home (to Dale's) we immediately agreed that she needed a name that was more than just "kitty." Dale wanted something "old fashioned" sounding... so he decided on Mavis. We were told that she preferred men over women... but she spent equal amounts of time with both Dale and me.
Here she is sitting on my lap. She shows her appreciation for lots of rubbing by purring and digging her claws into your lap!
This is the "why did you stop petting me?" look....
She was not particularly fond of having her picture taken this weekend... maybe she'll be a little less camera shy the next time I am down there.... I hope so because she's got THE cutest little round pudgy face!!!
