A Fluffy Bunny Post! (Or, More Therapy...?)

Although, given the expression on these 2 faces, I'm not sure what therapeutic effect I am aiming for! The left-hand one is called White Heat and below is his brother, KnightInWhiteSatin. They are both Foreign Whites and take very much after their father, Mini Me (whose real name is Arcturan Legend). Foreign Whites, despite being a breed apart in many ways, are actually genetically Siamese cats. I tend to think they are the pure-distilled-evil-version, where all the impurities have been distilled out and hence you are left with such a purely evil cat, that it is entirely white. This certainly holds true for their evil auntie Achtung, who has brought tears to the eyes of many a cat-show judge!

However, all is not lost! Look at this little darling:

It seems that once you add in that sweet, soft ol' longhair gene, they magically become all cute 'n' cuddly! (That's Gracie, by the way!) Only time will tell, if this is just an overcoat, or the hair is more than skin deep!

Actually, the first 2 kitties only look evil; it took a long time to take these pictures as I was being mobbed and there was a competition to see who could actually sleep around my neck. And there's the therapy: 10 minutes with these guys and you will be the most important and cuddled (and licked and snudged) person in the universe!

With the exception of Innana's white cat (who appears to be a British White Shorthair), all white cats I have know have been hell on paws. My own, long departed white cat was a British White Shorthair as well, and she was a cat with an attitude. Lovely kitties, btw.

Are you sure they are not indeed, evil? They seem to have that look in their eyes, the one from those 70's horror films...
Oh well, It's hard to believe that any of felines at your place could actually be evil.

I posted a comment earlier complimenting the kitties, but it disappeared . . . Lovely cats. Except for Innana's lovely white cat (a British white shorthair), all white cats I have known are hell on paws.
