Snickers is a calico manx, very gentle. I tend to sleep on the couch so she gets the bed. When I come home she always walks (not runs) out to greet me, get petted, and get a snack. When petting her she purrs very easily, and when she is not on her bed she is almost always lying within two feet of me. There isn’t really a ‘story’ here as nothing really happens in my home. But Snickers has definitely gotten me through some hard times with her love and almost Zen-like calm. I do need her and she is the love of my life.
