I cannot even express how close I am to my little one. His name comes from one of my favorite films: Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. I thought it appropriate. Brooke calls hers Gil for obvious reasons.
But, our family is not complete. We have yet to aquire our long-awaited and heavily anticipated Savannah Cat. His/her name will be Roxanne. "What is a savannah cat," you ask? Oh ho ho, let me just tell you. From a breeder located in Southern Utah:
The Savannah is created from breeding the African Serval male to a domestic Female. This combination has produced a large, friendly, beautiful cat that resembles a small cheetah.
The problem is, they are extremely expensive ($1,000-2,000). Oh, and we aren't allowed to have them in this house we live in. No matter. It is a dream that will soon be realized.
This post is dedicated to our dear cousin, Sarah, who is a lover of cats and has 6 or 7 of them at this time. They are all obese darlings. The smallest suffers from huge balls, stunted growth, and chronic humping. Love.
