Arrival Story: My uncle gave Chloe to my grandmother after she had to have Black Cat (yes, that was his name!) put down. She lived with my grandmother from about 1984 until 1991. My grandmother had to move into a flat at that time, so Chloe came to live with us. She stayed with us until 2001, when she wandered off to find her way to cat heaven. :(
Bio: Chloe was a beautiful cat. She was a little on the cranky side, but I think it was mainly because she was a bit arthritic. She loved to be patted on the head, but her back and rear legs were sore so she understandably got nippy if she was touched there. She used to venture outside each day, but she preferred being inside in front of the heater.
Strange Habits: The smell of my mother's talcum powder used to send Chloe right off. She'd get a really wild look in her eyes and start nipping my mother around the ankles (poor Mum!). She'd calm down within about half-an-hour, but it was quite bizarre!
