Isabella - joined September 2011

Hi, I'm Isabella!  I am 5 years old and live with my mommy, daddy, big woofie sisfur Sadie and little kitty sisfur Angel.  I was adopted into my furever family in November, 2006 when I was 10 months old.   My mommy and daddy had come to a local thrift shop that's run by the humane society to look for books but I had other plans.  When they came in the little room where I was, my daddy opened the door to my cage and I literally fell into his arms and have pretty much stayed there since!  I'm a total Daddy's Girl and I'm proud of it!  I have him wrapped around my paw!  I always stretch out beside his leg when he's sitting on the couch or I'll curl up in his lap.  I help him when he's on his laptop too.  At night I sleep on him or on his pillow.  I cry at the door when he leaves the house and greet him as soon as he comes home.  Of course I sit on my mommy too and I always headbutt her to ask her to pick me up so I can snuggle in her hair or sit on her lap while she's working.  Actually I want to be held by anyone who comes to our house!  I am a lover girl!  I even snuggle with my little sisfur Angel a lot too but Sadie won't let me snuggle with her. 
I am what you'd call a very mellow kitty.  Nothing gets me riled up ever, not even the doorbell!  My little sisfur runs like the dickens when a big truck comes in the cul-de-sac and especially when the doorbell rings but I barely even wake up.  My favorite hobby is to sleep and I can fall asleep in literally 5 seconds once I curl up.  For play I love to get wild on our cat tree!  I also love little catnip toys that I can carry around the house and put under doors so Daddy has to come get them out for me.  I make a sqeaking sound since I don't really meow and just one squeak always gets someone to ask "what?" and they come looking to see what I need because, you know, I am a Tortie after all!   I love to watch the Birdie Network and also enjoy watching the Squirrel Network from time to time. 
I'm excited to be a member of The Ladies of Autumn with so many lovely Ladycats!
