Friends Bombay Kitty

Cat’s are very much like humans. I have an American Bombay cat who I adopted almost 7 months ago when she was 7 months old. I went and picked her up on Friday the 13th thinking okay a black cat bought on this day will bring luck and happiness. Contrary to the popular beliefs held by some people. This little cat totally amazes me. I talk with her all the time and she sits and looks at me and starts meowing like she is speaking with me like another person. When I have been sad or in pain for some reason she will come up to me and has licked tears off my face and will sit there and meow as if to say I’m here and its okay, it’s like someone holding your hand to comfort you. When I tell her to do something she WILL go do it. She understands me and I understand her. I look at her as my friend and she gives me back wonderful friendship in return. I believe that cats will bond strongly with their people if they feel safe, loved and cared for. I also think that cats get lonely, sad, mad and bored just like a person. I know my cat is still just a cat but I feel that if someone really pays attention to their cat they will see that they can and will show love and loyalty just like a person does.Janice: Awesome story you submitted about your adopted American Bombay. We have a friend that is over the top involved with Burmese cats and from what I understand the Bombay is a black Burmese. So I through in a picture of a Bombay for people to see. Black with gold eyes is stunning. Often when people adopt a feline friend they soon discover that it was the best thing they ever did. We can’t help but wonder what name you selected for her. I hope that this story pushes someone on the fence of adopting to just go ahead and give it a try.About the personality and moods of cats Cindi and I can’t help but agree with you. We have a boy cat that thinks he is some kind of God to be worshiped and served by his human entourage (us). He is quickly angered when we do not meet his expectations. Then we have a girl cat that is the complete opposite and sweet like a sugar packet. She loves to snuggle and display’s her happiness almost all the time. We have a video up on YouTube showing our happy little girl. Well she’s my little girl but the biggest cat we’ve had at a stout 26lbs. Here’s her happy cat YouTube video. Thanks ~ Mark
