    You Have Been Chosen v, (U Hahv Bin Chozen) The first encounter between a feline and a hooman that usually ends up in a magenti attraction that is far more than 'love at first sight. The feline is usually the side that initiates contact and picks the person as a new caretaker. A bonding experience.
