Arrival Story: A friend of mine at work had a cat who just had a litter of kittens. The friend had been able to find homes for all of the kittens except for Badger and he was going to have to take her to the Shelter because he wasn't allowed to have more than one animal per his house lease.
I told my friend I would take the kitten (Badger)for a while to give him more time to look for a home for her. That was fourteen years ago but I'm pretty sure he stopped looking for a home for her the day he gave her to me.
Bio: She LOVES to talk!!! She & I play "Marco-Polo." For unknown reasons, she will wander away from me into distant corners of the house. Once there, she will start meowing at a certain pitch/tone that sounds like "Mar-co!" Years ago, whenever I heard this particular meow from her, I began saying "Po-lo!" When I reply to her, she meows "Marco!" again and we go back and forth until she wanders into the room where I'm at.
I have NO idea why she does this or why she started it. She also won't use that tone or answer the reply of "Polo!" from anyone but me.
