Phoebe


This little cat wiggled her way into my life and heart a couple years ago. She's sassy and silly and tough and sweet all rolled into one. And she's got the greatest blue eyes you've ever seen! She's even better which viewed large (click).

You have a very good eye, GetFlix. She's a Snowshoe:

The Snowshoe is a hybrid cat originating as a variant from Siamese parents. The origin of the Snowshoe can be traced back to 1960 when Dorothy Hinds Daugherty, Kensing Cattery, Philadelphia, PA found three kittens in a litter of Siamese, each with four white feet. Although the variant did not re-occur, Dorothy liked the contrast between the point color and the stark white of the feet and developed the first Snowshoe line by crossing her Siamese with a bicolor American Shorthair. Continued breeding eventually produced the popular 'V' face of the current Snowshoe in addition to the mitted variety.

Trust me, I'm not a breed snob. I adopted her from a shelter because she seemed so lost after her previous owner had died. I've spent considerable time and effort helping her adjust to her new life and have been richly rewarded. She's a little doll.

I've got three cats, Chili, all from the no-kill shelter in my community.
