Tabby and White

Total Feline World Domination; laying belly up with her paws in the air; cuddling; playing tricks; looking like an angel while acting like the devil

The Bookends (Ronan & Saoirse) trying to usurp her rule; not being allowed to share my doughnuts; any creature who takes up her side of my bed

Favorite Toy:
Squishy rubber ball; ping pongs; shoe laces

Favorite Nap Spot:
On my bed, curled up right next to me

Favorite Food:
Powdered-sugar doughnuts; cheese; buttered toast

Mistress of the "silent meow"; conning the pants off everyone -- even those who claim to not like cats. She also has one heck of a right hook to bop the other cats on the head with.


Arrival Story:
We found Pooka on the streets when she was only 5 weeks old. She was so cute and fiesty that I couldn't say no to her...in fact, it took me several years to learn how to say "no" to her with anything.

A Pooka is a Celtic faery known for its innocent appearance and devilsh ways. Turn your back on Pooka and she’ll hit two other cats on the head, steal their toys, eat your doughnut, and shred a chair…all before you turn back to see her lying belly up, purring sweetly with a Cheshire grin. She's been the uncontested Alpha Female for 7 years, a classic Type A personality, ruling with an iron paw. But to humans, she's all sweetness and light. Though tough on the outside, she's actually very sensitive...especially to stress and grief. When her two best buddies (Sorcha & Oberon) crossed the bridge, she developed Psychogenic Alopecia. By trying our best to create a low-stress environment, with a secure "escape zone" for her to hide in when she needs it, and giving her plenty of our undivided attention daily, we're hoping that she'll stop her self-mutilation in time.
