Welcome to Amante's Queen Harlequin

'Miisu' (her home name) traveled with the typist all the way from Finland. Speaking from experience - sitting under a airplane seat for 3 flights totally 15 hours in the air (not to mention all the hours in transit) is no mean feat for any cat! But like me (a sturdy Finnish Cat), Miisu came through it well. She has been here about ten days and has been settling in nicely.

As you can see she is a colorful and beautiful girl who is very athletic. Her name comes from her harlequin color (hence her registered name) - which means she is mostly white with large patches of color. Miisu's patches are orange (red) and classic tabby which also make her a torbie cat. She does have a bit of "Torbietude". Some people interpret this to be temperamental - I think of it more of having opinions and being able to voice them! She is very affectionate and gentle kitten who loves to come for a pet then be off on her explorations!

Its great to have another Finnish cat living here at Murlyka. I guess once you know one Finn Siberian you want to know more.

Great to see Miisu presented in yor blog! Aren't you happy to have a fellow countrygirl in your house!? Although all Siberians are somehow cosmopolitans! Right? Hope to hear more news about Miisu from you! And I hope she does not bother you too much with her tortietude! The home folks in Finland wish you both and the typist a warm and sunny spring in BC!

Its true we Siberians are very cosmopolitan lot but we don't forget our roots. Her torbietude isn't bad - mostly she's very talkative but then so am I.
