Thea was a beautiful dark tabby domestic shorthair. She didn't like being picked up too much as she didn't like feeling restricted, wanting to be 'doing' something all the time.
Thea was talkative and loving but had a dangerous zest for life and her curiosity finally got the better of her one month short of her 2 year anniversary. Whenever she was asleep and I touched her, or if she woke and saw me, she would stretch over onto her back and say 'meow, wow, wow, wow, wow'!
I lost her just over 2 years ago but I still miss her terribly. At least I have lots of lovely photos and videos of her.
