This is the one and only cat that I ever had as a pet. I got her from a pet store in West Palm Beach in 1978 where she was a tiny little kitty in a crate with her litter mates. I didn’t go into the pet store specifically to get a new pet, I just went to “look.” There was this crate with 5 or 6 kittens, and on top of the crate was a glass terrarium filled with little white mice. All of the kittens were sound asleep except for one. Picture this little kitten trying to figure out a way to get at the mice! I felt so sad for her, and decided on the spot that I was taking her home.
Baby was a great cat. She liked to play fetch, and she had a real thing for pickle relish, cantaloupe melon, and beef jerky. She only ate 9 Lives Chicken and Cheese and God help anyone that decided that changing up her food was a good idea. Eleven years of Chicken and Cheese made her very happy.
