Arrival Story: She was to be a present for our in house surgeon's 4 yr old daughter who was scared to death of her!
After being boarded at our hospital for several months in an attempt to slowly introduce her to the child (which failed miserably) I fell in love with her outgoing personality.
She originally came from a friend of this DVM's who owned a cattery and who had planned to breed her. I think they found a more acceptable specimen so he spayed her and she was to be free to a good home if he could'nt get his child to accept her.
For some reason, this doctor kept following me around and trying to get me to take her home while simultaneously trying to get his daughter to accept her. Since the child could'nt be convinced and I had access to her on a daily basis for serveral months, eventually, her personality won me over.
