No two cats are alike, and with Xyla, you are getting an exceptionally special cat. If you are an experienced cat owner looking to open your home and heart to a kitty with unique needs, you will surely be rewarded with lots of love back with this one. For Xyla, showing her love means happily sitting next to you and sometimes even sleeping on your chest. She is an independent lady, though, so don't be surprised if she spends most of her time entertaining herself and sleeping on your comfiest chairs.
One of the most important things to keep in mind about Xyla is that she can't see the best. It is so cute watching her nose around for treats when they're right under her chin, and she sometimes plays with silly things like marks on walls and the stick of a wand toy instead of the feathers. Even though she can't see the best she can always find her buddy to play with, her favorite perch, or her person to lie next to.
Xyla is comfortable with other cats, and is quite entertaining to watch when she chooses to play with them and chase them around! She does not discriminate against dogs, either - her motto is "live and let live!" She's not driven to seek out cuddles from her animal friends, but she doesn't complain when they want to snuggle with her. If they're insistent enough on being Xyla's cuddle buddy, she'll eventually warm up and love them right back, curling up with and even grooming them! She especially loves her tiny kitten friend Kuddles.
As much as she'd love to live a totally care-free life, Xyla has to play the hand she was dealt. This also means that she sometimes displays some unpredictable behavior and is prone to sudden bouts of high energy where she attacks whatever might be in her way. It is good to remember that if she gets into a batty mood, she doesn't mean to, and if you make the most of it and wait it out, she'll be back in her favorite spot, sleeping off the whole ordeal in no time. As she is getting older and since her spay, it has been a while since she had one of these bouts.
Cats certainly have a lot to teach humans, and Xyla is a lesson in appreciating the little things. She may not have the easiest life, but she knows when she has it good. She is ready to kick back in a calm and quiet home where she can have her space, hang out with some laid-back buddies, and explore her surroundings. Give Xyla a chance, and you may find your new best friend!
