Yes, I know I post a lot about my cat. But, I love my cat. She's really the sweetest kitty we've had in a while.
Here's her baby picture. She was an orphan when we got her. One of our friends from church called one day in early December and asked if we wanted a kitten. Her grandma had rescued a kitten from the woodpile behind the FastStrip in town and she couldn't keep her, so would we be interested? Of course. We convinced Daddy to pick her up after work, and as Daddy didn't have a cat carrier handy, he had to deal with driving with a kitten climbing all over the car.
We named her Socks, because she has white feet, but she also has the most beautiful black tabby stripes. In those early days her favorite activity was to climb the Christmas tree. Fortunately, the tree never fell over.
