I used to have a long haired black kitty. I adopted her when she was 10 years old. Her original Dad had her since she was a wee kitten, but because of increased work responsibility he wasn't home much and felt it was unfair to her to leave her home alone so much, so he had her
place an ad in the paper and 'sell' her charming self to someone! Of course I couldn't resist the ad based on the kitty's perspective and had to go and see her. It was love at first site!
