Dominic thinks this reading stuff sure is thirsty work!
Loki, tired out from helping me pack away Christmas ornaments

Oh! What breed is your Dominic? My Angel has that same kind of coloring and body type, but she's a stray, and I've always just 'part siamese, maybe'.
Adorable critters. :)

According to the vet who examined him when we got him from the shelter he's half blue point Siamese and half tabby. He has a very tabby like body with the Siamese coloring. The eyes, which you can't see in this picture, are a very very pale blue rather than the sapphire of a purebred Siamese. I'm told this is very characteristic of the cross.

I have a cat that looks just like Dominic (and has the same background)! Her name is Xena and I think her Siamese side comes out more than her tabby side. She talks all the time and is rather demanding when she doesn't get attention. She will jump on a person's shoulder to make sure that person understands that Xena needs something *right now*. Luckily she is so soft and loves to cuddle so her victims generally get over it right away.

Hmm... He looks like a Burmese to me.

I have a cat named Loki that looks a lot like your baby. Mine is a chocolate brown Burmese, he looks almost black in pictures.
How did you come up with the name Loki? I read a lot of fantasy and that is where I got the name, a Nordic God of something......

With Mary Kay's Permission, I've added the images of her cats to my ecard section. :)

JWC: Loki is a not uncommon name for cats. He's the Norse version of the Trickster and is always causing trouble. Certainly that's how ours got his name. I too am a reader of fantasy and science fiction, but I've known about Loki for years on account of my fascination with mythology of all sorts.
