parker saturday



so this week i did a lil’ research on parker’s breed – some fun facts:

  • parker is a ‘bombay’; a relatively newer breed of cat (first bred in 1958) – a mix of sable bumese and a solid black american shorthair
  • bombay’s tend to accept dogs in the household better than cats (reason #1 why i was doing the research, i want a dog & wanted to see how she would react)
  • highly intelligent and actively seek interaction with humans. 
  • they love to do tricks, fetch & retrieve toys (parker excels at this)
  • 2 common nicknames: the parlor panther of the cat fancy, and the “patent-leather kid with the copper penny eyes”
  • one website described them as ‘velcro-kitty’ as they love to be attached to their human.  another called them ‘lap fungus!’ as you cannot get them off you once they are there.  both are true.

    Lap fungus! That about describes Alice. She and Parker must have been separated at birth or something. Fetches, attention whore, sounds about right. Except my girl has green eyes.

    CB: Because she doesn’t like to sit in the lap of pure evil. 😉
