Let me introduce you to my special little girl (not that I am biased). Her name is Milly and she will be 5 next month. We have only had her for a year as she came to us from Birman rescue (having previously had 2 Birman brothers I did want another Birman). It was not that she had been mistreated - but the breeder could no longer breed from her and I think she now has a much happier & normal life with us. She has the most fantastic friendly personality - goodness knows what I will do if somebody visits us who does not like cats!
