In typical Vancouver fashion, Mike still lives with his mom Trixie. He loves attention and, when inspired, he wanders over to purr loudly and lean into your hand. He’s always the first to greet you by asking for pets, pumping his head against your hand and weaving around your legs. He’s also very enthusiastic about play and will swat at toy mice and chase sticks and strings moving across the floor. As his confidence grows, he’s even starting to show enthusiasm for rolling balls with bells. A handsome gentleman, Mike likes to saunter around the house with ears relaxed and tail held high. He likes to find cozy perches where he can watch the world go by.
Trixie will sit her little self on your hip or your chest when you lie down, purring contentedly whenever you’re awake enough to rub her ears. She loves a good place to perch or to hide and peek out of when she feels like keeping to herself. Other times she likes to saunter into a room and observe its goings on. An avid foodie, she likes to sit just outside the kitchen to watch and sniff while you cook. She will, of course, offer to test your creations. She also likes little chats and will respond if you meow back at her – be ready for a full conversation! Trixie may put on a bit of a grumpy face at times, but she’s especially quick to purr. Purring begets cuddling, which will result in louder purring and louder purring will result in drooling. It’s adorable!
There’s something quite spectacular about coming home to a pair of sweet cats who just can’t wait for you to come and snuggle up with them! Trixie and her son Mike have slowly been coming out of their shells and showing the depths of their affection and fondness for play. While still inclined to avoid noise, they bloom in quiet places, coming out to seek pets and to check up on you. They aren’t shy about sauntering into the living room and reminding you when it’s time for dinner and time for bed. Evening is their favorite time, as they adore snuggling up in bed with you.
