yeap she is settled in pretty fast i think all things considered with the lack of human interaction and being in solitary for most of her 5 months in life growling at people when held haha she scared off lots hopeful families that wanted to adopt her to according to the petsmart workers lucky for us the wife accepted my explanation about why she was defensive like that but who wouldnt grumbly when you got who knows how many noisy kids people banging on the walls of your house to wake you up and then they wanna pick you up and get you to play

Aww, she is adorable!! Is she black or gray? I see ghost tabby markings on her forehead and body.

She's looking pretty comfortable already, and definitely no grumbling there! :)

Yep, that raccoon tail is a hallmark of tabbies. You can also see the faint "M" on her forehead and the tabby stripes on her hind leg in the pic.

I don't think I've ever seen an entirely gray kitty with ghost tabby markings. It must be quite unusual - and beautiful. :) Look at that velvety nose.

Do you have pics where her eyes are open? (I'm so nosy, sorry!)

to clarify: it may be more common than I think, but maybe just not as visible. There's a member who has a black kitty with ghost Bengal markings, which is also really cool. :)

Such a cutie! And her coloring is really beautiful. Yes, that pattern that looks like camo seems to be the tabby pattern called broken mackerel (stripes with interruptions). When tabby markings are on a kitty with a solid color coat, they're called ghost tabby markings.

I just looked up blue (technically, that's what gray kitties are called) with ghost tabby markings and read that most often, those markings will fade once they're adults, so take lots of pics now! :)

Is she showing you who's boss yet? ;)
