Anna, thanks, for awhile I thought she was going to be beautiful but snobbish. She's turned out to be affectionate, on her terms. Faile/Zarine is my favorite character in the books, I love her strong will and her independence, traits she shares with her namesake kitty.
Heidi, You're right, they could be related.
Everyone's cats are so pretty, gotta love those black kitties. Tania, little Reggie is darling.
