Quick Bio:

Black and White

Attention, playing with the Cat Track, swatting wagging dog tails, playing with the laser pointer, carrying the laser pointer around, fetching bottle caps.

The Vet.

Favorite Toy:
Cat Track, other cats, anything that moves, laser pointer, keys, bottle caps, my computer.

Favorite Nap Spot:
My shoulders.

Favorite Food:
Whatever, she's not picky.

She figured out where the laser pointer dot comes from, and how to turn the pointer on. Also how to get it out of the drawer it's kept in. She fetches bottle caps and turns on the speaker-phone when she wants in on the conversation.


Arrival Story:
One morning my two dogs woke me up by running from my bed to the back door of the house, back and forth, wimpering. Sometimes they see skunks or raccoons through the french door back there, sometimes, I think they just hallucinate. That morning I let them out and they both ran right to an old ferret cage which now holds horse halters. There's a tiny spot about four inches high underneath it, and this is where their attention was trained. Underneath, I found Joy, perhaps seven weeks old, with a terrible sinus infection and many cuts, puncture wounds and scrapes. Took her to the vet for a checkup and stuff for her nose. Vet thought she had been on her own for a few days. She's much better now!

A little sweetheart with the softest coat, she loves everyone in the house. We keep watching the property to see if perhaps the rest of her family is anywhere around.
