I’ve gone and inserted photos into my earlier posts. Now for some reason they are too big on the post to see all of the photo but if you click on the photo it will take you to a full size version.

I hope they convey a little of the lovely cat she is. I know many people ask if she is Russian Blue or similar but she was a kitten in a litter from a stray cat – albeit a lovely all black cat (no markings) and very bright green eyes, father unknown but possibly a feline mercenary for hire – see discussion on her personality below! ¬†And with yellow eyes I understand that she is not a true blue (hah, Australian joke there). However her coat while short in length is very thick and lovely (eek – she’s missing so much of her lovely thick fur over her butt right now – so I do have to tell her that her butt looks big in that!)

Freya has tuxedo markings of white, and a little white moustache that is very cute. So many people remark how lovely she looks and her little face is very sweet (little! My friends are laughing here as she is rather …. rubenesque). But it hides an attitude of ‘don’t mess with me’. She has also become very much a one person cat over the last few years and while she will wander up to and sniff at your belongings and even you, woe betide if you (as in not me) take that as an invitation to pet or stroke – prepare to be swatted away, with claws if you are persistent.

Freya contemplating life

So, not a cuddly princess but a haughty goddess shares my home. And after nearly nine years, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

And for those interested, she has been an indoor cat all her life. A pampered, environment enriched indoor cat.

  • Cat tree – tick.
  • Cat chair – tick.
  • Scratching posts – tick.
  • Cat grass – tick.
  • Toys and boxes of all kinds – tick.
  • Sleeps on the bed – tick.
  • Sleeps in the bed when cold outside – tick.
  • Does pretty much whatever she likes – tick.

LOL. No wonder she carries on like a goddess – I do nothing to dissuade her of that notion.

Freya looks like a lovely kitty indeed!
