It had been far too long since I'd had a cat. Approximately 2-3 years, which is the longest amount of time I've ever NOT had a cat. My reason for not having a cat was Shiner, because she did not get along with our previous cat despite them living together for many years.
Since moving in with us, Callie and Shiner have gotten used to each other. They don't necessarily get along and you won't find them cuddling on the couch together. But at the very least they tolerate each other and the cat doesn't really hide from the dog anymore.
Callie is a fun cat that enjoys eating, sleeping, giving kisses in the form of licks (she's a very licky cat), playing with string or wand toys, catnip, bananas, shredded cheese, tissue paper, boxes, and making biscuits in my lap. Callie wasn't always a lap cat, however.
For over half a year, she almost never sat in my lap or purred. After a long time, she just started doing it one day and I love it! I get to have lots of biscuits almost on a daily basis. And she purrs while she does it.
To celebrate Callie's 1st Gotcha Day, I created a short video with some of our favorite Callie video clips from the past year. Some of it is never before seen footage. Enjoy!
Happy Gotcha Day Callie! Here's to another fun year!
