Civilians and Other FurKids
Sea is Fin's 10lb sister cat. She was abused and hid for the first two weeks after I brought her home but she has since come around to trusting me. Her belly is so soft that I call her Chinchilla. She likes to bully my 42 lb Basenji/Terrier mutt, MiAmor, who has a healthy respect for cats. MiAmor is also a rescue that I got when I was working at Lifeline Puppy Rescue in Colorado. I brought her home at 7 weeks and she is now 8 years old. I love my fur babies!
Divorced. No kids. Very happy.
