Other Information about Fin:

I adopted Fin and his sister, Sea in May 2010, but have their entire life medical history from the vet.

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!
