That's My Cat!!: An American Curl's Story.

A story about a cat with unusually shaped ears, as told by its owner.

It's the ears.  The ears do it each and every time.

I have a cat called an American Curl.  Her ears are not shaped like most cats' ears, but they give her a sense of charm and "adorable-ness" that makes people gravitate her.  They do not affect her in any way; she is as normal as can be.

My cat's  name is Dixie.  She is very cute and very intelligent.  She is three years old and still has retained a lot of the behaviors she had as a kitten.  Dixie has big, green eyes, tabby markings on her fur and white on her chest in addition to four furry, well-tufted paws.  Even the tip of her tail is white.  

I got Dixie as a birthday present from my husband.  I have multiple sclerosis and am unable to work; my health is not the best.  I am unable to walk most days unless it's on a walker or crutches; on my bad days, I use my electric scooter, as it's easier for me.  I also use my scooter whenever we go somewhere.

Anyway, back to my story.

Dixie loves to sit on my lap whenever I am using my scooter at the house and will often hold conversations with me by meowing or chirruping in her sweet, high-pitched voice.  Dixie is extremely vocal and affectionate.  It isn't uncommon for her to place her paws about my neck in a hug or give me head bonks or kisses with her nose.  She has the sweetest "purr"sonality of any cat I have ever seen!

Like most cats, Dixie spends most of her time seeing, but when awake, she plays, eats, does her business, and never fails to make me laugh with her kitten-style activities.  She is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I have  my dear, precious husband to thank for that!
