Nicknames: Shelby Girl, Little Girl, Little Meepers, Meeper Girl, Sweetie Girl
Birthday: February 1st 2006
Likes: I love romping with my new brother and bestest friend Squirt! Then when we get all worn out, we cuddle up together and nap.... ahhhh.
Pet-Peeves: I really don't have any pet peeves. Mommy says I'm the most easy-going and sweetest girl!
Favorite Toy: I love milk rings!!!
Favorite Nap Spot: I love sleeping on Mom and Dad's bed with the other kitties! We pile up on there all of the time.
Favorite Food: I eat Science diet w/d mixed with Purina Cat Chow. And we get canned food as "treats" every few days.
Skills: I'm particularly good at chattering, and looking very sweet and innocent... even on the rare occasion I'm somewhere where I'm not supposed to be... like in the aquarium before it got filled up with water and fishies, or up in the Christmas tree!
Arrival Story: Oh boy has my life been eventful! I can't remember how I came to live with my first "Mommy." Though she loved me, she ended up not being able to keep me. So I went to live with one of her friends, who had wanted a kitty just like me for a long time. She was a wonderful Mommy, and I really loved her and my new Dad! But just as I was getting settled into my new home really well, they had to move to another state, and couldn't take me with them. My Mommy was heartbroken. But she had a very good friend who LOVES kitties, and she knew this friend (my new Mommy now) would take me into her home, give me the best of care, and love me just like she really was my Mommy in the first place. And she was right!
Bio: I came to my newest (and hopefully forever!) home in the late summer of 2007. I was a bit scared at first because all of a sudden I was moved and yanked out of my home to go to another strange place again. "When would it end?" I thought! And in this newest place, the humans were very nice, but they had 8 other kitties already! What if all the other kitties didn't like me, and what if the humans didn't have enough love to give one more kitty? I was scared, sad, and upset at first... but after I slowly got to meet everyone, my new Mommy said I was the best "integration" ever... whatever that means. I think maybe it has something to do with how the other kitties all like, and accepted me so quickly. But I'm just that kind of gal... I get along with everyone.
I only know that I feel really at home now, with a family that loves me. I'm truly "one of the gang," as Mom says. But her, Daddy, and the boy all make me feel special too. I found out they DO have enough love for one more kitty! Mommy calls me her little "Meepers" or "Little Meeper Girl" after the way I chatter at her. And Squirtles... I mean Squirt, is my bestest buddy! We play and tease and nap with each other all of the time. He's closest to me in age too. I get the feeling this is my forever home... finally.
