Biggest fear: Bugs

Secret talent: She’s an escape artist who disappears through the cat gate.

Fave activity: Catching zzzz’s

Her sweetest habit: Kissing my face.

Not so much: Drooling.

She DVRs: My Cat from Hell—she loves bad boys.

Rocks out to: Disco—because it has the purr-fect beat.

Preferred plaything: The shoelaces on your sneakers as you’re wearing them—she likes to jump on your feet.

She thinks she is: A baby.

I think she is: Also a baby. She will follow you around the house until you stop and show her your affection by petting and kissing her and, if you’re very lucky, she’ll occasionally let you hold her like a baby.

Tolerates: My antics of dressing her as a child.

Hates: Car rides—she’s a homebody.

As a kitty: She was very energetic and loved to play hard—so she got into a lot of crazy situations.

As a senior: She’s still very affectionate, loving, and friendly. She will sit on the most extraordinary things just to be by your side and just loves to find a warm place to sleep—often on my lap.

Sweetest tricks: If you press your nose against her nose she will kiss you. Also, when you pet her neck she will constantly lick your hand until you stop petting her.

Most annoying behavior: She is very vocal and will not stop talking until she gets what she wants. She always wants to win.

Has been spotted in: A plaid fleece vest, a Santa suit, reindeer antlers, and a birthday hat for every birthday pic.

Naughtiest antics: She squeezed into a kitchen cabinet and pushed out six glasses that came crashing to the floor in a thousand pieces.

Wackiest habit: Hissing at new toys.
