She was sometimes shy and “back away” ish depending on how gunked up her eyes were and her sneezing. We felt bad for her as it was clear she was under the impression she would be punished for getting us gunked up if she sneezed on us – REALLY BOU!? I developed a saying or few along the route with beary – my favourite being “Im the kind of Mamma who wears her best clothes out to see to the cats – Do i really look like i care about a little Cat Snot and Eye Boogers?!”
Aside from that – she was always looking for affection , “If you sit – Bou will come” ….and give you a dead leg / arm! she liked to lick your top and rub her ears against you as her way of showing affection towards us.
Abilities: She was very vocal and very smart – she could do things that surprised even us (including opening springlocked doors with one paw and picking the right coloured toy / shaped item if you played brain games with her)
Special Needs: She needed daily eye cleaning but didnt like that too much – also she had a fur issue as she was an unknown breed with very long matty fur . She would have a shampoo and brush down regularly. She required L-Lysine tablets every couple days with wet food to aid her Rhino-T.
Coat description: Brown tones , beige stripes , black and tan markings (stupidly designated as British Shorthair by the vets and “tabby with fawn markings”)
Breed Detail: Felis Chaus Hybrid as discovered by doing research into her heritage , markings , distinguishing features and characteristics (plus size etc) and help from people online with breed knowledge
