She is adorable! What’s her name?

My vet told me that tabby cats, particularly males, are considered the most affectionate cats. Our Tango is the first tabby I’ve had, despite having more than 30 cats in my life, and he is, without a doubt, the most affectionate I’ve ever known. His nickname is Sweety Kitty and he usually sleeps between my husband and me. He wants to be touching both of us.

Our tiger, Sébastien, has the funniest and quirkiest personality of any cat I’ve had. He is affectionate but not cuddly. He always sleeps alone, usually on top of my husband’s shoes, but he visits us during the night for pets. He wakes one of us up, gets a couple minutes of attention, and leaves. He is also our house patrol. He wanders around a good portion of the day checking on everything. He even opens closets and cabinets! Nothing gets past him. If you walk from one room to another, he follows to see what you are doing. He is the nosiest cat ever!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
