Minxy will soon arrive here, her forever home:

At one-week old.

At one-month old.

Need-to-know information....I paid my first visit to the kitten we're planning to adopt.

She is the biggest female in the litter and obviously the alpha. In fact, she hissed at me and arched her back! None of the other kittens did so.  In fact, they did the opposite and crawled all over me.  She sat back and observed — and finally warmed up to me.  On her terms.

Reminder: the definition of minx, of course.   Mr. AOW and I welcome the challenge of sharing space with another alpha cat. 

Our beloved Cameo was an alpha cat from day one until her last moment.
