My Cat’s Name: MaggieMae
Age of My Cat: 2 years
My Cat’s Birthday or Gotcha Day (or month): July 23, 2011 (birthday)
About My Cat’s Birthday: I got MaggieMae from a shelter when she was 4 months old. My brother-in-law took me after my 20 year old cat passed away. I chose MaggieMae because she seemed very calm. After she settled in after a few days at home she was actually a terror (her favorite game was climbing on top of the cabinets and pouncing on me when I came into the kitchen). I had forgotten what having a kitten was like.
Over the last few years, she has mellowed and we have come to some agreements (no more kitchen cabinets). She still will have her hilarious moments (like when she throws her toys (with both paws, overhanded) at me to get my attention. I would never trade her for anything.
For rescues only: how I got my cat: I got her from my local Animal Protective League. They said she was found wandering on a local beach.
