Sorry, I know they aren't the best quality. She doesn't sit still very often. Lol! The last one is my attempt to get the red/tan/cream in her legs and the red points on her tail.

Thank you. It's really hard to get a picture that does her coloring justice, but she has a lot going on. Red, tan, cream, gray/silver, black... If I manage to get a great pic I'll share.

I'm sure someone will come along and tell me I'm wrong and there's more to it, yes I am aware of that but I have a migraine and this is a starting point.

Thanks! I will give this a try.

Where I NE Ohio? We are in Portage County. We drove out to the Crawford County Humane Society for her. She was a surrender because the landlord I her previous owners would not let them keep her. We really lucked out. She was 10 months old when we picked her up and she has really blossomed in the last 9 months. She is my little shadow and absolutely loves to give hugs. :-)

Sometimes you catch her at an angle and she almost looks Mali. But just sometimes. She is all HSD attitude! :-)
