“My, my! What do I see from up here on my perch? A human? Well, goody, goody. Would you be bringing food? I’m a young tabby woman with an exotic tabby face – genuine mystery in my eyes and genuine opinions in my mind. I do prefer looking down to people rather than look up at them. I think people and cats would get along much better if we were about the same size. We could talk face to face and nose to nose. Don’t you agree?”

“I’d like to get to know some good humans. In my short life thus far, I’d not met a lot of good people until I came here to Feline Rescue. To tell you the truth – because I am that kind of a cat, I’ve been thinking that humans just aren’t too bright. They bumble around, can’t jump, can’t climb – and lots of them can’t be trusted. Well, I’m sorry, but too many of you can’t be. How about you? Are you more like a cat than a human? Could I sit in your lap? Would I sit in your lap? Did you bring food?”

“The human who took my pictures seemed pretty good. She said I look like a sand cat! A sand cat is a special cat. Sand cats are the only cats who live in true desert – out in the sand – and, yes, we eat rodents – kangaroo rats, pack rats, and such. Sand cats  look like tabby sand – just like me. I’d be proud to be a sand cat. They are endangered. Know why? Because humans keep moving into their neighborhoods – hard to pounce rats when humans and their camels are rumbling by.”

“My, my! For someone who says she’s not sure humans can be trusted, I sure do talk a lot, don’t I? OK – I’ll just sit here and get to know you – and let you get to know me. I know – that black and white fellow over there keeps inviting me to his toga party. But I am not a toga party sort of girl. I prefer meditation to yowling. How about adopting me, showing me your nice high windows where I might perch and watch the world go by? How about it? Only $120 for an exotic desert woman – me – young and proud. Me – Riley.

If you'd like to know more about me, just stop in at the Adoption Center to meet me or leave a message for my secretary at 651-642-5900 ext. 3. She'll call you back.
