Introducing Allie The Cat
Allie is the name of my 6 year old cat. She has been with our family since she was 5 weeks old. We got her when she was that little because her mama disappeared when she was 4 weeks old and the lady that was taking care of them just couldn't continue taking care of the kittens. It was hard work at first since Allie hadn't been taught all the things mama cats teach their young. When we would feed her she would end up with more food on her than in her belly, which necessitated a bath with every meal. She was also tiny, when I took her to the vet she didn't even weigh a pound. She did finally grow, though she had a small setback that required an unexpected trip to the vet, but with care she recovered.
She is now a good size cat, weighing in at over 10 pounds, but doing well. She loves us humans and has a special bond with the youngest. The youngest was only about 4 months old when Allie came into our lives, so they have grown up together. Allie loves that girl no matter what she does, though she has learned she needs to be nice to Allie. The only time Allie really has a temper is with the dog and the vet. I was told tortie's (which Allie is) are known for their tempers but we hadn't seen it until we took her to the vet. She hissed and growled the whole time. She still does not like the vet but no longer hisses at them. She still hates the dog though. We've had the dog for about two and a half years and Allie still does not like her. I don't think that relationship will ever change.
