I luckily got "Baby" and her Mom almost 14 1/2 years ago from a woman who couldn't keep them anymore due to allergies. Baby was an incredibly loving and wonderful little kitty from the minute she became part of my family.
I've never met a kitty who required more attention and love as she did. She loved to get hugged and would stay in your arms for the longest amount of time purring very loudly (you could hear her purr from across the room).
She had many endearing habits but the one that stands out the most was when she jumped on my bed and onto my chest at night to say "goodnight" by placing one paw on each side of my neck as if she were hugging me. She'd fall asleep with her cheek resting on my cheek. I miss my little girl terribly.
