LOS ANGELES — If a scared dog bolts from home, it's likely to run as fast and far as it can. But if a house cat panics, it's more likely to slink away and stop at the first good hiding place it finds.

Twinkle is a gem of a kitty. First, she's unbelievably cute and
very photogenic to boot. Second, she's a snuggler! Twinkle is an
affectionate little girl that enjoys being held. She turns her purr
motor on when she's being pet or otherwise snuggled by her people.
Finally, Twinkle loves a good play session. She enjoys chasing
balls and loves being taunted by wand toys. She'll duck in and out
of her condo cubbyholes, jump high into the air, and roll around on
the floor - anything that will help her capture that wand. And when
she is successful, she will carry that wand away in her mouth to
explain to it who is boss. Twinkle does well with other friendly
kittens after an introductory period - she plays a little hard to
get at first but, in no time, comes around. She does very well with
her current kitty roommate.

Just looking at Jimmy makes you want to pick him up and give him
a big hug, except he's so little. You don't even have to touch
Jimmy to get him to start purring, just looking at him gets that
purr motor rumbling. Once you start petting him, wherever he is,
whatever he's doing - if he's standing still or in mid-stride -
Jimmy will fall over against you in complete surrender. He pretty
much loves to be petted anywhere and everywhere. Jimmy is not only
a snuggly little guy; he's an inquisitive, playful, and silly
little kitty as well. Jimmy loves to explore and excels at playing;
he considers it to be one of his favorite past times. Taunt him
with a wand toy and watch him leap high into the air. Toss a toy
mouse across the room and watch him take off in hot pursuit. Toss a
stuffed toy across the room and Jimmy will bat at it and chase it.
OK, toss anything across the room and Jimmy will be an orange and
white flash as he pursues it This sweet boy is going to make some
lucky family very happy.
