Monster LeKiwi is a very special kitten. She was born to a barn cat - a gray tabby - and came from a litter full of orange and gray tabbies.
She was the only different one - cream colored and she later developed her beautiful seal points, snowshoes, and kept her blue eyes. I think her father might have been a Ragdoll because she goes limp in the typical Ragdoll way when she is picked up.
Monster's uniqueness comes from more than just her beauty though. Monster loves to wear clothes. She wears t-shirts and sweatshirts all the time, and it's clear that she loves them the way she walks around showing them off and is very helpful when you put them on her!
Another unique thing about Monster is that she loves car rides. She watches out the window, sits on your lap, and often sits on the storage compartment between the front seats of the car just observing.
She also loves going in the pet stores. She walks on her leash, gets carried, or sits in the cart. She does very well with people petting her and I am always complimented on how well-behaved she is and people always say they can't believe it because their cat would be freaking out.
The other thing Monster loves to do is go outside and go on walks in her harness. We started her doing that as a kitten and she loves it. She likes to just explore and is good at keeping up.
Monster also is very protective of me - almost like a dog. I only found that out a couple of days ago. I was play-fighting over something with someone and yelling stop and such and Monster must have thought I was hurt because next thing I know I see her try to get between me and my friend, and she began biting up and down my friend's arm and attacking them!
I have never heard of a cat acting so protective and it was so sweet to me to know she would try to protect me if I were hurt!
Monster is my best friend, and those are just a few of the things that make her unique and the things that I love about her!
