Arrival Story:
My husband and I were relocating to central PA and a friend had "excess kittens" that needed homes. Her daughter came outside with a kitten under her jacket, only the head was peeking out - that was my first glimpse of Ida. We moved a few weeks later, and Ida joined us shortly after. She quickly adapted to our other animals and made herself right at home.

Bio:
Ida likes to "run amok" for no reason whatsoever and at all hours of the night. She's very independent and does not like to be picked up or cuddled, unlike her older brother, TimmyCat, who thrives on cuddles and being carried around. Our little "Ho" is also a cat burglar. She loves to "borrow" Q-Tips from Grandpa and, being such a feminine little thing, she constantly takes her Mommy's jewelry and hair ties, I presume to play dress up during the night. She also likes to do crafts and, if Mommy forgets to put things away, she will create quite a masterpiece from dried flowers, ribbons, corn husks and bird feathers. She earned the nickname of "Grace" (and lost one of her nine lives)about one week after moving in with us. Ida was "quarantined" in one of our spare bedrooms until she could get to the vet for her first check up and shots. When we returned, I put her back in her room with a child's gate across the door so she could get accustomed to her roomies. Being the skillful climber that she is, Ida quickly escaped the confines of her prison and made a mad dash, which led her to the stairs - surprise! Ida cannot fly! She was airborne down ten steps and onto the landing, where she bounced off the wall! Mommy quickly made it to her side, picked her up to comfort her and noticed that her little eyes were rolling and she was shaking her head as if to say, "Where on earth did the floor disappear to?" She recovered quicky, though and hasn't slowed down since. She has, however, learned to take the stairs the normal way! When she was smaller she would take a shortcut through the bannisters but, much to her dismay, she now has to squeeze through, and occasionally finds herself stuck, forcing her to go into reverse. We have a rock wall behind our coal heater that she climbs and, if a ladder is available, she will climb it to the top. If she's outdoors and something startles her, she will try to open the door to get back inside. My father-in-law moved in with us a year ago and Ida decided that she would be "his" cat, whether he liked it or not. Lucky for her, he likes it. If he goes out, she'll lie in his window and watch for him. She greets him at the door and escorts him to his room.
