If you are presently reading this article, then it is clear that you possess a fondness for cats. The remarkable thing about these feline creatures is that each one of them is genuinely unique and special. Even the stripes and swirls on a tabby cat are akin to a fingerprint as no two can ever be precisely the same. Mindy, the tuxedo cat, is a bonafide head-turner with her stunning green eyes, luxurious fur, and innate ability to pose for the camera. Despite her lovely and refined appearance, she was adopted from a shelter by her loving humans, and her start in life was far from glamorous. I recently spoke with her cat parents to gain insights into this beautiful creature, so that I could share her story with the readers of Cattitude Daily.
Can you tell me how Mindy became a part of your family?
Mindy came into our lives when we adopted her from the Abbotsford, BC, Canada BCSPCA at just three months old. Apparently, a turkey farmer found her along with her siblings, all covered in mud, and brought them to the shelter. We fell in love with her instantly and knew she was meant to be a part of our family.
And is there a special story behind her name?
Not really, actually! Mindy was already named when we adopted her, and we thought it suited her well. There was no need to change it.
Can you describe Mindy’s personality?
Mindy is a unique tuxedo cat with a mix of bravery and fearfulness. Despite her timid nature, she rules the household as the Queen. With her long tail, she can balance on a thread if given the chance. Additionally, her unusual gait is similar to that of a runway model.
Are there any other pets in Mindy’s home?
Mindy has a non-biological sister named Belle who is slightly older than her by 6 months. They were both adopted within 24 hours of each other and have grown up together. While they don’t exactly have the strongest bond, they coexist peacefully. Belle has yet to challenge Mindy’s reign as the Queen of the house.
What does Mindy enjoy doing in her free time?
Mindy’s top priority is tormenting her sister, Belle. While she enjoys the typical activities of eating, sleeping, and cleaning, these take a backseat to her favorite hobby. Despite her mischievous nature, Mindy loves spending time outdoors, though her wandering tendencies have caused her to go missing twice for two full days. The second time, during a rainstorm, we were devastated and even hired a Pet Detective for $1,000. However, Mindy returned to us as if nothing had happened. She also enjoys climbing into door jambs and racing around afterward as if it’s a game. One of her favorite toys is a laser pointer, which she can track no matter how quickly you move it. Although not particularly intelligent, she’s incredibly quick and likes to mimic her older sister’s behavior. Finally, Mindy likes nothing more than taking a daily nap on her Daddy’s lap while he watches TV.
What’s unique about Mindy that you’d like others to know? Well, Mindy is quite the conversationalist and will greet you with a friendly hello. Don’t be surprised if you mistake her for “Sylvester” upon first meeting her. I want to express my gratitude to James and Nicole, Mindy’s loving cat parents, for sharing their insights on their feline friend and providing me with her adorable pictures. It’s heartwarming to see how even shelter cats like Mindy have a higher purpose in life and all they need is someone as kind as James and Nicole to offer them the opportunities they deserve.
