Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY. This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better. Some of them, you may already know. We hope that you enjoy this series!
Age: 13 maybe – but ladies don’t always tell the truth

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? It was scary. I was in a little cage with my baby boy in a room with dozens of other cats. It was noisy. This lady came and took me out of the cage and tried to cuddle me. I jumped down and hid behind the trash bin. She wouldn’t take no for an answer and came to take me home. She tried to adopt my baby boy too but someone else wanted him. I thought she was crazy but I kept an eye on her from my hiding places.
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? I got really sick right after I was adopted. I was hospitalized for a week and when she came to pick me up I knew I was going to stay at that place with fluffy beds and secret hiding places. She talked about big vet bills but I had no idea what that was.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? When I first came home I was too sick to have the “spay” operation. Mom wanted to wait a few weeks until I was strong again but I went into heat and caterwauled all night. Yep, all night long. Jake, an older black cat who lived there, was terrified. He didn’t know what I wanted even though I flicked my tail and showed him my “goods.” He hid under the bed. Mom said he was neutered very young so he didn’t know the facts of life. A few nights of that and I was scheduled the next week!
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? I’m little, only 7 lbs. The other two cats here are 12 and 15 lbs. Most people don’t know that I am the alpha cat and rule the roost. If I’m not happy ain’t no one happy.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
