I'm Still Here!
This is the year of the rescue critters. Magic is just turning out to be a charming little dog. She just wants to please me and Don. Maybe me a little more...gotta say, that's kind of gratifying, if a little small-minded of me. I mentioned that I would really like to have a cat around. I just like them. Don, not so much; he likes other peoples cats. Despite that, he pointed out a cat that was on the website for the city shelter. Not only did she seem to fit our desired cat-specs (female, not a kitten, not geriatric, spayed, preferably declawed), and the price was right as cat adoptions were free. I wasn't going to argue, so off I went right after work one day and picked up Daisy.
Again, we seem to have gotten lucky in rescue land. Not only does she meet all the above cat-specs, but she is affectionate without being too needy, even tempered, does not crowd the door to get out and she and Magic get along (a non-event). I'm guessing her reason for being at the shelter is perhaps neglect (rather than abuse), her lovely fur is patchy from matt removal and she's on the thin/undermuscled side. Daisy is going to be one gorgeous cat in no time at all!
