Zambo is (in)famous for two things: one is her disposition, which has been described as feisty, grumpy, ill-tempered, or more recently fractious. I hadn't heard this word before, but I looked up the definition & it suited Zambo to a T. If you don't want to look up the word, I'll provide some examples of Zambo behaviours to illustrate:
|Yes, she is giving you stink eye.|
2. Banned from a vet in Vancouver due to "attitude problem"
3. Hates it when company comes over, but rather than leave the room, will sit right in the middle of it, glaring at all present & swiping at anyone who tries to pet her.
4. Transforms from mild mannered cat into Tasmanian Devil at the vet, becoming approximately 4x her regular size, allowing examination of teeth (bared), coat (sticking up in all directions) and vocal abilities (excellent hisses & growls)
Speaking of size, that is the other thing Zambo has been famous for. She is a chunky kitty who loves her food.

|Maybe she is just big boned.....|

|She was slightly stressed, but did not light the room up like she does at our local vet.|
