Rescue pets have been a part of my family since early childhood. When my husband finally agreed to get a second cat to play with Atty, there was no question, we were going to adopt. Of course, if you know us, you know that we don’t have a second cat, we came home with a dog that day, but it was for the best. Atty, AKA Miss Attitude, needs to be the boss of the house and I’m pretty sure bringing another feline into the mix would have been upsetting.
The ultimate princess. She was a stray who’s mother had a broken leg and was struggling to care for her litter. My family veterinarian took all of the cats in and mended the mother’s leg. I took Atty home with me when she was about six months old. Eleven years later, she’s just as feisty and just as much a princess.
