Mimi, the sweet kitty

Mimi was adopted from an animal shelter on the day of the Chinese New Year in 2012. She was only 5 months old at the time and was brought along by her foster family to accompany the kitty my family was to adopt. Just as fate has it, cats choose their owners and Mimi chose us upon our initial encounter and snuggled in our arms when we asked to hold her. Her innocent, soft meows instantly melted our hearts. Without a doubt we brought her home and Mimi has been with us ever since, even though mom and I developed allergies.

Mimi loves to play, jumps very high to catch furry toys and kicks her little mice around like an elite soccer player. Her athleticism may suggest why her original name was "Olympia". She also loves to eat quality meals including rotisserie chicken, Japanese cheesecake & lactose-free milk. Affectionate and perhaps a bit insecure, Mimi always wants lots of attention and follows me everywhere possible. She is not shy around strangers which makes her popular amongst friends.
