Thanks for the confidince Sam ! Lets see, currently have five, and bred the little rascals for almost ten years, and I have to say that each one has their own personality and temperment. 1. Rusty, a seal male, loving, not afraid of strangers, very social. 2. Babycakes, a tortie female, very social and loving, not easily scared (except for small children)but she is very much a "Daddy's little girl". She wants me to feed her, but otherwise, she's HIS cat. 3. Heifer-cat, a blue point male, very nervous,terrified of strangers, including my mom who raised him, he's mine and ALL mine. 4. Yum-yum, a flame point female, who by far is the most trusting kittycat I've ever seen. When she was smaller, I could take her to the vet w/out a leash or carrier. She's whoever is loving her at the moment cat. 5. Rurnt, aka, Twinkletoes, a tortie female , definitely my cat, not Charlies. Rusty, Babycakes and Yum all want to be wherever you are in the house. Rurnt and Hef tend to stay in just one room, they'll change what room that is occasionally, but they don't follow you thru the house.
I should add that loud strangers do tend to upset my kitties to an extent, but that is largely due to the fact that its just me and the hubby at home, and both of us have very soft voices, so it's something that they aren't used to.
Does this help? It turned out to be longer than I intended, but once I got started I just couldn't stop myself! If you have any more questions, just yell, someone will try to answer them.
