DOB: February 2, 2008

Personality: This is Boss Boss. She runs the house, putting herself between everyone and demanding belly rubs and chicken. She is a lot smarter than she’ll let on, and we suspect she’s actually a mob boss with a reserve of tanks somewhere. She’s tried to divide by 0 before. This one is a Daddy’s girl. Likes: Her favorite song is “Bluff” by アンド (one day she put the song on repeat) Dislikes: Having her ears cleaned.

Background: We wanted a second cat, and since I already have Patches, Scrabble would be for my husband. She had been born in a trailer park home, where a lady was caring for the kittens, posting them on Craigslist for people to come adopt. Another family adopted her originally, but because she was too shy around the young children and puppies, the family decided that she’d be happier with us and we adopted her when she was about 1.5 years.

She hid under the bed for weeks, slinking around suspiciously at night. It took years before she felt comfortable enough to jump into bed and cuddle with us, and now there is no trace of that shy cat.
