Priscilla was rescued from a hotel. She was super skinny. For 3 weeks she at 3 cans a day of food and ate as much dry as she wanted and milk all she wanted. Then she had 2 beautiful kittens, Stripe and Tips, born on July 5, 2006. Priss was a very very good mother. She had an umbilical hernia that got fixed when she got spayed.
Now as you can see, she's healthy and happy. She loves attention, mrrring and running around playing with her kids, at times :P She's only 10 months older than her kids :P She loves to lick my lips after brushing my teeth or chewing cool mint gum or starlight mints.
10-27-10 Since Spot passed my herd has been in need of an alpha. Spot was a true alpha cat. He defended the herd against all intruders from dogs to wild critters, if need be. He took a few trips to the vet for minor wounds from that but was just fine, not even a stitch, just some antibiotics. So, I was looking for one of the males to step up for the job. Spot's twin, Creature is too much of a lady's man but will stand up and defend. Sam, the largest is afraid of dogs and Norl is just a goofball, all play. Zif is a loner but will defend the territory faster than the other males. The kittens, now 7 months, are still too young to decide on this so Sith, Charlie, Ying and Yang get a pass for now. So it is Priss stepping up to be the whole herd alpha. She did this last week by standing up to our neighbors 150 lb Lab, Jake and running him off! Granted, Jake is a goofball who uses my leaf rake as a fetch stick but likes to chase cats. Priss was having none of that and backed him off. Priss is the smallest cat overall of my 13 and weighs between 7 and 8 lbs depending on the time of year with Winter being her 8 lbs. So for now I have a true alpha, as all herds should have. Priss's favorite things are chasing clothes line rope or sticks, eating treats and curling up on my chest and licking me.
3-4-2011 Priss was at the vet for a checkup. While in the waiting room an uppity puppy decided to sniff and bark at Priss while she's in her pet taxi. Priss, being the alpha, lunged at the pup anyway and backed it off! Priss has asthma and is being treated for it. My Asthmatic Alpha Priss! :P
6-15-12 Priss hasn't had to go to the vet for asthma in about 8 months. She's not cured but it is under control :)
