Name: Shangri La
Species: Temple Cat
Birthday: Wednesday, August 5, 2009
Descended from the sacred Egyptian maus, temple cats are noted for their magical qualities. Intelligent and curious, they love sneaking wherever they're not supposed to be, and are almost impossible to catch. This cat is the color of Egyptian sand, warm tan with spots of golden brown. Charcoal rimmed, almond shaped eyes watch everything from the temple cat's concealed location. They enjoy warm temperatures and are known to nap in the sun or in front of a fire. These royal felines are highly intelligent and almost always busy exploring, but don't mind finding a warm lap to lie in.
You watch as a beautiful cat slowly strolls around a corner. A desire to pet it overcomes you, and you follow it - only to see nothing. When you turn around, it is directly behind you, its posture dripping dignity. Temple cats are noble and magical creatures, slender and agile, practically impossible to catch. These felines have been around for eons, watching and learning from magic doers, and over the centuries power has leaked into them. Seldom seen unless they choose, temple cats scrutinize magis and sometimes aid them in their work.
