Introducing myself...I am Skippy!
My name is Skippy. I thought that I would introduce myself since my two legged mommy joined this site recently and mentioned that I live in our home with two cats, Dusty and Peaches, and my two legged daddy. The five of us are quite happy now.
The reason I say ‘now’ is that I started out being kicked by my original owner…the man in the house. He was really mean! Apparently he did not want a puppy in his house. The woman who lived with him could not prevent it and I was saved by literally being puppy-napped by one of whom would have become my human grandmothers. Thank heavens!
I ended up being fostered for a while by a great and caring lady who also did grooming until she found another home for me. But sadly my saintly two legged mommy died after I had lived with her for quite a few wonderful years. Her daughter is now who I referred to as my two legged mommy and she and her hubby are also great animal lovers.
Dusty the cat did not like me at first but we have made a peace contract between us. Mostly I just avoid him and that seems to work pretty well. At first he did a lot of hissing when I would get close to him and he would swing at me with one of his paws. He has his claws and I did not want to get a nasty scratch on my nose.
The other cat in this house is Peaches and she and I like to play every day. She is about my same size and most mornings we have quite a tussle. She does a lot of napping every day, but so do I while my mommy is typing away on the computer.
So all in all, things have worked out very well for me and I love my feline and human family.
I hope you like my picture. My hair is now cut a lot shorter and I like it both ways as long as I get brushed daily. I love the brushing and also the attention I get while being brushed.
Hope you are all having a great day! I will talk to you later about other things in my life soon.
