“Penny (formerly called Mizer) is PURRFECT!” exclaims Janet. “I’d had a large Maine Coon I loved very much, and hadn’t been ready for another cat until I noticed this large and beautiful 15-pound Siberian Forest cat available for adoption. I knew she was meant for me as soon as I read about her.

“Penny LOVES being brushed all day and lets my grandchildren, aged two and seven, brush her whenever they want. She also loves to get a bath (what a water baby!), and not only sits in the sink for a bubble bath but drinks from the faucet as well.

“She made herself happily at home the moment I opened her crate, walking around for a few minutes before plopping down next to me. Whenever she leaves the room I’m in, it’s to look through the glass doors of the sunroom, and although she’s strictly a house cat, she’ll ‘stalk’ every raccoon, squirrel and bird she sees.

“Thanks to her, I laugh EVERY morning when I get up and find two or three kitchen and bathroom cabinets opened. It’s not that she disturbs anything, she’s just nosey!

“In short, I LOVE my Penny Girl: she’s well worth every penny I’ll ever spend on her.”
