Settling in atop my face at night
Cats who are not friendly. Dogs. She attacks them, due to a coyote incident. Wet floor. Me not going to bed on time. Real mice--She prefers to hunt and chase fake ones.
Favorite Nap Spot:
On my head or face.
Miss Daisy prefers dry kitten food of excellent quality.
Deaf Miss Daisy can spin like a pinwheel in pursuit of a laser pointer. Her other skill is loudly chasing down toy mice, pinning them to the floor and howling very loudly until I come "appreciate" her fake kill, which I do, to stop the loud howling.
I got a call from a farmer, for whom I'd trapped some 200 feral cats, for spay/neuter. He'd found another one, he said, when he went out to get the mail, a quarter mile walk to a country road. It was 100 degrees out, no houses for miles, and here was this little cat in the ditch, crying. I don't know how she survived the heat, the coyotes, the speeding cars on that notorious section of road, used often for road racing. She was sick, too. But survive she did. She had to have teeth pulled and I was told she had stomatitis that was auto immune based. Wasn't true, fortunately. I tried to find her a home, but that failed, so she's still here, and very well loved by myself and all my other cats. Everybody loves Miss Daisy.
Her deafness made life initially with her very difficult, because she had to be isolated, due to bacterial infection. And she'd howl, scream actually, until I tried a citronella anti bark collar on her, without much success. I went weeks and months without adequate rest. The other cats didn't want her here at first. Bangor, my Maine Coon, figured out she was deaf and would attack her from the rear. To this day, Moby, my ghandi like male cat, remembers how badly Bangor treated Miss Daisy and goes after Bangor still, backing her into a corner and standing over her in retribution for her behavior towards Miss Daisy. Miss Daisy wanted to please me badly, and when she would walk by Bangor, because I had pleaded with them to make peace, when Bangor would eye her menacingly, about to attack, Miss Daisy would literally turn her head and look the other way, as she passed, on velvet feet, so as not to incite Bangor's tendency towards evil exploitation and abuse of foster cats. Miss Daisy has since then become the favorite here. She'll roll on her back in delight, reaching out her front legs and paws to touch me as she does. Miss Daisy at night takes some time, settling into the perfect position on my head or across my face. She's a beautiful sweet kitty, whom I met because some jerk through her from a car on a country road.
