My name is Shawna, and I haven't always been a cat lady. In 2010 my dog passed away, and I was devastated to say the least. After a couple of months I decided to get another dog. So off to the rescue we went! Little did I know my life was about to change forever. I was in a wheelchair at the time, and most of the animals were pretty terrified of the chair. While looking at some puppies, this little brown tabby jumped right in my lap. I said, "Well hi there!" and then she started licking my hand. I was instantly hooked. It turned out that she was 8 months old, and had been abandoned outside in the snow as a tiny kitten. She was literally frozen to the ground when they found her. She lost part of her ears, but definitely not any personality!
Fast forward to today: I now have 6 kitties (I guess if you get water on them they multiply, I really didn't know). They are all rescues, and two of them are special needs hospice fosters. 5 of the 6 are seniors. Honestly I love all animals, but cats have taken the biggest part of my heart.
I'm happy to be part of the Weirdo family, and hope we can have some smiles together. Thanks for having me.
