Many times during the day, I leave my desk to perform chores of one kind or another, and today, when I came back into my office, guess who I found lying very comfortably on my desk? None other than my two sweet Exotics.
Every so often, they decide to be buddies (for a short time), especially when it’s on Mom’s desk so she can’t get back to work!
Rusty belongs to the breed known as “Exotic Shorthair.” It’s an official CFA (Cat Fanciers Association) name for this breed of cats that originated from the Persians by way of a genetic mutation many, many years ago.
One of the distinguishing features of these cats is their broad, flat face and small ears. This is the first time I was able to capture Rusty’s phenomenal facial side view.
Romeo is a very smart cat. He opens closet doors, he gives me his paw when I say, “Shake.” And, he, among other things, can find the best spot to keep cool on the sunny patio: in the shade under a chair.
I walked into the patio a few days ago, and there was Rusty staring right at me! I love when he has his paws turned down like that. I quickly turned around and went for my camera, praying that he would be in the same position when I returned.
He was! The photos below are the result before he decided to jump down.
