I never intended to keep Cinderella, I was just getting her out of a horrible situation. After one night, she was part of my heart and soul.
I was very misled about Cleo, and she's not the cat that was "advertised." That said, she's here to stay.
She has attachment issues and is skittish (from being passed around to friends' and relatives' homes while her owner was traveling, including living with a two-year old child when I got her, which I'm sure is why she doesn't like her legs and feet being touched). She's getting better, but really only likes to be touched on her own terms. BUT, she falls asleep after about 10-15 minutes of kneading my face/neck/arm and has to have her paws on me to sleep.
I see cats advertised that I think might have been a better match for Cinderella, but who knows how they would actually be? I think Tim most recently said you never know until the get the cat home.
Cleo has the energy of a kitten, is absolutely fearless and makes me laugh every day. Plus, she follows me from room to room, even though she's not the "lap" cat I was told about. She'll lie by my feet or sit in the window while I'm on the computer and hang with me in my bedroom.
She's very patient with Cinderella, who hopefully will become friends with her eventually. They can both sleep on the bed with me, but Cinderella, understandably, considers me "hers."
I wouldn't keep second-guessing yourself about Little Foot. Cinderella was almost 4 when I got her, and Cleo is 1-1/2 years old. There are a lot of people who don't want a kitten (even though everyone knows how many I fall in love with).
