This YouTube video by Jackson Galaxy explains some basic personality types of cats. I was surprised that Raven is the Mojito cat, which is the type of cat that is well-adjusted and confident in their ownership of their surroundings. I think of Raven as being a bit timid or shy, but I guess that’s a normal response to unfamiliar sights, noises, and neighborhood cats.
When Sammi was here, Raven was a little more of a Wallflower cat. Sammi was a Mojito Cat and queen of her castle. But now that Raven is an only, she’s very confident in her home and displays many of the Mojito cat traits Jackson describes. She walks with her tail high, weaves between your legs, and comfortably hangs out in the middle of the room. Yay, Raven is a well-adjusted kitty!
