We went to Colorado to get one kitten, but couldn't choose so we came home with two. It's a good thing we did.

Sometimes it may seem as if the Somali never sleeps. He is ever in motion This is a playful, persistent cat who adores being the center of attention and will do anything to achieve and maintain that status. Somalis are adaptable throughout their lives and fit well into any home where they are loved and given plenty of attention. In a home where people are at work during the day, the Somali does best with a companion, ideally another Somali or Aby, who can match his activity level. If left to his own devices, the Somali may well dismantle the house in his search for something interesting to do.

Beware! The Somali can be addictive. Once you’ve had one, you may find that no other cat will do.

Good thing you warned. I know of one Somali, whose name is Punkku. The guy Pena is like an opera singer. We sometimes traveled in the same car, so I know. They are both great types. And those guys in that picture. There will be such a strange and soft feeling when viewing them.
