Piccola is a sassy Siamese that, naturally, loves to talk. Though actually quite chilled for her breed, she can insist on attention, as Siamese — especially females — do. But, she can be quite the charmer, too.

She'll respond in a low, husky voice when you call her name. When you pat her, she'll coo like a dove, albeit a loud one. Despite her rather aloof expression, which is a large part of the reason she has been overlooked, Piccola actually loves people and loves being picked up.

Not crazy about other felines, she will tolerate them, but Piccola would probably do best in a single-cat home. Talkative cats make great companions, and this little chatterbox will be more than happy to strike up a conversation.
