Bean is shy but once she warms up to you , she will wag her tail so hard when you give her belly rubs. She likes to use her paw to ask you to come to her like the Japanese cat (Maneki Neko) they put in front of restaurants. She will also try to 'swim' if you carry her and walk around which is very funny. She learnt how to walk on the leash in one day! She also travels well in cars.
