I grew up with cats and have never been without at least one. I believe that a house is not a home without a cat! One of the first cats that I remember as a kid was diabetic. Her name was Kitten. My Mom would give her shots of insulin twice a day. Despite that, she was healthy and lived to be 13. I think that’s why I now have a soft spot for kitties that are a bit different. Along with a dog and a parrot, I have six cats and three of them have special needs. Two of my babies are tripods and one was born with a neurological disorder. Don’t worry, she’s actually a very sweet and happy little girl with the normal projected life span of any other cat.
The people that are close to me know that I’m obsessed with two things, cats and hockey (Go Knights Go!). During hockey season, I go to as many games as I can. In the summer months I enjoy being surrounded by nature and taking photos of the wildlife. I’m also perfectly happy staying at home, relaxing by the pool and having friends over. I mostly keep busy with fostering. I always have foster cats and have had as many as 12 fosters in the house, in addition to my own. I have also fostered a few dogs and “foster failed” my current dog Sadie, an adorable shitzu. It’s truly a special feeling knowing that you have helped an animal find their forever home…a cat or dog that would have otherwise lived on the streets or died in a shelter. Animals are simply my passion and I love taking care of them all!
