Hello

I'm a 71 year old femile living in Portland, ME with my husband and 4-yr old cat Mitzi. She was a rescue from HART in Cumberland, ME. I got my first cat in 1966 and the longest period w/o a cat since then has only been 3 months. Mitzi is my 5th cat. My first one, Siamese named Samantha lived to be 13; her "brother," a black tomcat also lived 13 yrs. Both of them lived w/me in Germany for 2 years. Cleo, another Siamese died at 20 yrs., 3 months. She was followed by Patches, a gorgeous tabby with emerald green eyes. He died in 2009 of a massive stomach tumor at age 13. Mitzi is a handfull, very curious and stubborn. She did, however, save my step-daughter's live last yr while she was visiting us over 7/4 weekend. She is diebtetic and very overweight. She went into diebetic seizure at 3:00 a.m. Metzi was next to her bed, crying, which woke us up & enabled us to call 911 in time.

Welcome Loricherokee, Mitzi is indeed a very special cat! She was probably paying you back for rescuing her.
My brother lives in Hollis and works for the park system in Portland. It is a beautiful area to live.
