Meet My Fur Baby Family - Torrie

Thursday, April 30, 2009

My kitty, Torrie is an all gray shorthair, 15 year old cat that we got in 1994, when she was 6 months old. I got her from someone I worked with whose neighbor had dropped her off in their yard.

Torrie does not like our dog. When we first got our dog, Sandi, Torrie would immediately run and hide whenever Sandi was near. She would get into cabinets or up on high places and wait for the dog to find interest elsewhere. Over the years, she still does not like the dog any better, but she no longer hides from her either.

When we first moved into our current house, Torrie immediately staked out the cabinet under the kitchen sink and would not come out. She would take all her meals under there and would only come out to use the litter. Eventually, we were able to coax her out and now, even though she rarely leaves the kitchen, she spends a lot of her time sleeping on one of the kitchen chairs. When we bought a scale at the beginning of April, we had put the box on the kitchen table temporarily while we took the scale upstairs. When we came back into the room, Torrie had adopted the box as a bed. She now sleeps inside the box, when she is not terrorizing any cats or dog and come near.

    What a cutie! My cats love when we give them new boxes, especially when my dh buys new gym shoes because the box is so big!

    Torrie is beautiful!! It is funny that we spend money on cat toys and all the cats want is something so simple as a box to sit in. emoticon
    Take care of all your fur babies,

    What a beautiful cat. I miss mine so much and I am not able to get another cat because where I live doesn't allow pets. So enjoy her!!
