Sleeping on her back

During play, the three "boys" trying to put her in her place. She hisses at them and puts them in "their" place!

Favorite Toy:
little bouncy puff balls; rings off the milk jug caps

Favorite Nap Spot:
not counting me, the recliner

Favorite Food:
chicken lunchmeat from Aldi

She's a talker; talks to me, talks to her toys; talks to herself ...


Arrival Story:
Shannara's mom hung out near the car wash. The car wash manager saw her and started feeding her. She would come to him but would not let him touch her. After a few weeks it became apparent that she was going to have kittens. The manager contacted the Benld Adopt-A-Pet animal shelter and asked if he could borrow a humane cage to trap the expectant mom. She was caught easily enough and the manager dropped her off at the shelter where they immediately realized she was not feral but a cat that was abandoned. Two days after arriving at the shelter she gave birth to 5 kittens: 3 boys and 2 girls. Shannara was one of the girls and looks just like her mom. The shelter volunteer had taken me in the back room to look at Sterling and his brother. After confirming that I wanted Sterling, I happened to look in the next cage and saw another litter with a beautiful calico sleeping in between her brothers. Without hesitation I said, "I'll take that one, too!"

Shannara visits residents at our local nursing home. She rotates with Shade and Sundance, going once a week, along with my Collie, Amber. Shannara is shy so she prefers to hide in a pillow case or cozy-up next to the residents while they are reclining on their bed. Amber's presence also helps, giving Shannara a familiar face and calming affect. She has her little harness and leash on and is in her stroller while we walk down the halls. At home, Shannara is awake and outplays the boys. They're snoozing while she still has the energy to play with her toys. While playing, she meows and talks to her toys. Once I'm down and lying on the couch, Shannara is right there, making biscuits and eventually curling up on me for a nap.
