Today is “every cat has a story day” and I have one of my kitties left to tell you about which I will do next week. This week, I thought I would tell you about my niece’s cats. She got Nixon ( named after Trot Nixon the Red Sox player- not the president) when she was in college back in 2006. Her roommate wanted a cat and had chosen an orange one at the shelter, but when they went to pick him up, he was gone. Sarah fell in love with Nixon and had her roomie adopt him, but he became her cat immediately. He had separation anxiety and meowed all the time when she was at class. It didn’t take long for word to spread and he was not allowed to stay at the dorm so she brought him here and he stayed in her room most of the time. Eventually, she ended up commuting to college closer to home so Nixon lived with us for several years. When she moved, I had a hard time seeing him leave ( her too) .
Right before Sarah and Ryan got an apartment, Ryan found Nellie on his road and she was limping. She had been injured and it healed wrong so she will always walk a little different, but she still loves to play.
Nixon and Nellie get along great together and manage to tolerate, Nora the Jack Russell terror, oops I mean terrier. And we must not forget Selfie Sunday Here’s Sammy: Thanks to : http://thecatonmyhead.com/ for hosting the Selfie Blog Hop.
