A bit of time outside, a toy to play with occasionally and a good feed.
Tickling her too much. She will bite after a while if you continue.
Anything small.. toy mouse, fluffy thing, etc.
Favorite Nap Spot:
On anything that smells like Mommy & Daddy that's soft and kind of hidden away.
Hill's Science Diet Mature/Slim/Hairball Remedy dry food, Friskies wet food.
Great at catching moths or other flying insects!
indoors and outdoors
Spooky passed over the Rainbow Bridge about 1pm on Friday 20 March 2015 at my home in Melbourne. She is laid to rest in the garden she loved to hang out in among the flowers and plants, and there is a little white cross marking where is is.
I miss her very dearly. :(
We had adopted a white shorthaired cat named Whitey from my husband's parents. She was getting on in years and I wanted another cat. Specifically, a Black Cat. What dedicated Witch (Wiccan) wouldn't want a black cat to love?!
So we hunted around. My husband was working at the local hospital, Royal Darwin Hospital at the time and started asking around at work. He encountered a nurse who rescued stray cats in her spare time and took them to her home, rehabilitated any that needed it and basically fed and gave them the love they didn't get on the streets.
We asked her if she had a black male that she wanted to adopt out, and she said that she had a black female. We we went to her house to look at the little girl, who was at that time, about 3 month old.
She was beautiful! The nurse had temporarily named her Mollie and as soon as she came to us for a cuddle, I knew she was the one. So we adopted her (no cost) and brought her home, much to the dismay of our little old lady darling, Whitey.
We renamed her Spooky, and after she and Whitey made friends, she settled into our house and lives wonderfully!
We brought her with us to Cairns Queensland when we moved from Darwin and although the trip was a bit hard for her, she now lives happily with her sister, a 3 year old chihuahua and my husband and I as Mommy and Daddy.
Whitey passed away peacefully in her sleep one day from kidney failure about a year after we adopted Spooky.
As it turned out, we really did name her appropriately! She doesn't like strangers and 'Spooks' easily whenever anybody new comes around!
