Tuppence came from a great little pet store in Aurora, IL. She was campanion for many years to my 1st cat Tessa, who recently passed away. Tuppence doesn't meow, she trills - and has taught my other cats to trill also - Peaches and Joon-bug learned trilling from Tuppence! She is an A #1 affectionate lap kitty! When I make a lap, she's in it!
