My cat, Blanquita, is not beautiful, I must admit it!
She came as third member to my other two animal partners, Cordino and Papardella, two pure Siamese findings from the “Rescue service for animals”, two cats with incredible beauty and wonderful character.
These were saved narrowly by a field with asparagus, where had been tossed in the winter by 10 degrees below zero, being both just fourteen days and almost dead.
Although they had (and still have) serious harm with their health, many people wanted to get them. But the rescue service (with which I had previously worked in the past because of wild animals) asked me to I take them, to avoid anyone abusing them for breeding.
Blanquita had a similar biography, but no one wanted Blanquita, because she was not beautifull.
My oldest cat Caruso was just dead, with 18 years, and I decided to add in my family a third, new partner. I told the organisation, this time I would decide alone.
When I entered in the room I saw just about seven cats, the most of them were breed cats.
In one corner I saw Blanquita, white with grey dots and a vulgar brown “curtain” over her left eye, which reduced her aesthetically very much.
Immediately she came near me, fell back, put her foot of my hair and whispered to me something, that nobody else listened, except me: “take me from here, and you will see that we will be happy together”!
And so it happened!
Since then, Blanquita and I are inseparable, I can not even go to the toilet without her.
The dedication, loyalty, gratitude are the feelings that offer all the animals, when they feel loved.
My Blanquita has given me all this with an excessive generosity.
Very early she understood that she could not win the competition with Cordino and Papardella, in relation to the interest of our visitors.
All show interest for the beautiful and so Blanquita remains unregarded, though she does everything to be noticed.
That`s why she has adopted the tactic of surprise.
She rises on one of the wooden beams, that support the roof of the mill (where I live and have specially constructed for my animals) and starts to relay races and acrobatics up and down.
Many people do not like this, because with an animal jumping over their head they feel at risk. But this is exactly what oblige them to deal with her.
When they show enough interest, Blanquita goes down again and honour all very generously for their attention!!
Recently, a colleague visiting me told us:” I cannot understand, what you find about this animal, and you have such an affection for her”!!
“Since I have Blanquita,” I told him, “I have a special affection for ugly beings. That’s why you are also sympathetic to me”!!!
He did not visit us anymore.
Because Blanquita and I tolerate the ugly faces but not the ugly characters.
with best regards for all hier!
