One of the first cats that DH and I had together was a handsome seal point Siamese. We adopted him from the Humane Society. Or perhaps I should say he adopted us — the moment he saw us he began to howl like a banshee (having never heard a banshee I’m guessing here, but trust me when I say it was quite dramatic!). As soon as I picked him up he settled into my arms and purred, turning the most gorgeous blue eyes up as if to say, you really wouldn’t leave with me would you? Of course we didn’t.
We named him Snickerdoodles after DH’s favorite cookie — the cookie that I baked for DH when we were first dating. He was a quirky, talkative cat who loved to snuggle and give nose kisses. Snickerdoodles liked to snurgle on blankets, sit on your lap while you were reading and hold the page of your book with a paw, and supervise every activity with those luminous blue eyes.

We lost Snickerdoodles to cancer several years ago. Even now I miss his serene, loving presence as he kept track of our daily comings and goings. He was a special kitty and certainly one of a kind.
