Pet Costume Contestant No. 9
"Baby Blues" Baby is this kitty's name and being dressed in style is her game. Her owner, Stephanie, bottle raised her, which is why they have formed such a strong bond. Baby appears to be a "tabby-point" Siamese, a part Siamese, silver/gray Tabby* cat with the most fetching blue eyes. Baby is the best dressed cat in town! She lives with her mommy in California and is one of my dearest customers. I never have seen a kitty wear accessories with such confidence and ease. *Tabby: The tabby cat has a distinctive coat that features stripes, dots, or swirling patterns. Tabbies are sometimes erroneously assumed to be a breed of cat. In fact, the tabby pattern is a naturally occurring feature that may be related to the coloration of the domestic cat's distant ancestor, the African Wildcat. Tabby color is found in many breeds of cat, as well as among the general mixed-breed population. The tabby usually has an "M" mark on its forehead *Siamese: Siamese are a very intelligent, lively, entertaining cat. They can be very demanding and become totally involved in their owner's life. Siamese do not like to be ignored and always have to be the centre of attention. They usually regard themselves as people rather than cats. You will never be bored if you own a Siamese cat. Siamese have a strong personality and are usually very talkative, often with a loud voice. The Siamese voice is quite legendary and they use it well to communicate with humans. Their meow has been compared to the cries of a human baby. They enjoy being with people and have a great need for human companionship. Siamese cats are sometimes described as extroverts. Often they bond strongly to a single person.
