Shabanou (the name is Persian and means 'Princess')
Shabanou is my husband's kitty,
it took her years to get used to humans, she had been abandonded and was very much afraid. She is now six years old and is finally looking forward to being brushed and even asks for it, waiting patiently on top of our wingback chair. She still hides under her blanket if a stranger comes into the home. But she knows she is loved by us.
