Hi everyone! My name is Sandy, I'm in Florida.
I have 5 cats and 2 dogs.
I have a Calico who has stress issues.....sometimes she gets scared of her own shadow, and starts scratching herself from the stress. My vet's tech, and the animal shelter people had told me that Calicos have "issues". Now I know what they mean! She also has a history of bladder stones.
I have another short haired black cat that is the sweet shy one.
A long haired black cat with urinary crystals. He's gone and changed
color on me 3 times in 4 years. He started out a chocolate color, then turned all black, then went to a silver smoke color, now he's turning black again! I think he's been sneaking out to Walmart and stocking up on hair dye!
My tiger stripe is the mom of the group. She grooms everyone.
And then there's Cody.... a black short haired with a wacky personality. I rescued him from Animal Control the day before he was scheduled to be euthanised. He was a very tiny, energetic kitten, and the smartest cat I've ever met! In his first year, he's learned how to unplug the computer, turn the answering machine on and off. (He likes to hear it talk), open drawers, and has started eating my brooms! He's a crazy little thing, and he NEVER GETS TIRED! (And he thinks the dog is his mother.)
Good thing he's so cute!
