I had an enormous Forest Cat who was mostly black, with some dark gray mixed in. I took him in when he was only 5 weeks old and he remained fiercely attached to me up until he died of old age. All cats have personality, but this guy had an eerily human quality about him. When friends would come over, he'd have to sit around us, but not trying to get pets or attention, but like he was part of the conversation. He'd sit there independently and look annoyed if anyone tried to touch him too much. When people would talk, he'd look at that person like he was contemplating what was being said. He often took interest in my activities around the house, but not in a mischievous and playful way. Every once in awhile I'd catch him off on his own, playing with a piece of fabric or something and when he'd notice me watching, he'd lose interest, fluff up his tail at me and walk away like he was embarrassed or something. He used to drop pennies and dimes he would find throughout the house when he wanted fresh water in his bowl. His way of waking me up was to stare directly into my face, quietly, and when I'd open my eye's he'd let out one whiney meow. Occasionally, I woke up to him petting my face.
I don't think I can have another cat after little guy. My husband's (orange, lol) cat is great but I don't think I'm going out of my way to adopt another one.
