Her kitty mommy (me)
Petting her and then pulling your hand away (she will grab it back), other cats, being awoken from a comfortable cat nap
Krinkly-sounding butterfly toy
Favorite Nap Spot:
On my pillow

If you put your arm out, she will automatically lay on it, she will also use both of her paws to pull you closer to her when snuggling
Spooks has been in my family for over 20 years. She originally was rescued from a shelter by my stepbrother in 1987. He went to the shelter to get a cat, and chose Spooks, whose name at the time was Kate. The woman at the shelter said that Spooks was scared and abandoned and did not like humans too much. About two minutes later, she was snuggling and attached to my stepbrother. Ever since then, she has been a member of our family.
Spooks was diagnosed with diabetes about a year ago. Since then, each morning I give her a dose of insulin. She has been doing great and doesn't even mind getting her shots!
She is very youth-like, LOVES to snuggle, and will meow at the top of her lungs if she is hungry.
She is the queen cat of our house. She rules over her two little sisters and does NOT get along with Chauncey, the king of our house.

Forever In Our Hearts:
Well, this past January, I thought Spooks had a cold. She was having a bit of nose drainage on one side, and eventually, she got a stuffy nose. After going through just about every antibiotic available, I brought Spooks to a specialist to have a scope done. As it turned out, Spooks had a large nasal tumor, almost extending into her brain and other side of her nose. When the biopsy came back, it was bad news: she had the worst type of cancer, which has a very poor prognosis. Given her age and size of tumor, it was determined that chemotherapy was not an option. Therefore, about a week later, on February 16th, 2009, Spooks crossed the rainbow bridge, quietly, in my arms, in our favorite computer chair at my home. I wanted to give her peace before the tumor started causing her more pain than she may have already been in.
Spooks was a part of my family her entire life, 22 years. She was the first cat I ever owned, and inspired my life-long love and passion for cats. She will forever be looking down on my rescue, and I know that I will never meet a cat as happy to snuggle as my Spookers. I love you, Spooks.
