The original Minnie (Generation 1) was a stray who took up residence in the Grannie's garage one Christmas. She was one of the meanest, nastiest kitties ever to roam the face of the earth and was on the short list (of one cat) that the mom just would not have anything to do with. She bit and scratched without warning or provocation.
Minnie G1 - mean as a junk yard dog.
Once the mom's Cape Cod Auntie was visiting and CC Auntie went into the bathroom. Minnie followed her. CC Auntie was petting her when Minnie turned on her and gave her a horrible scratch down the entire length of her leg. Blood was everywhere.
After that, whenever the Grannie sent something to CC Auntie, she always included a photo or two of Auntie's favorite cat.
Minnie G2 - Minnie Pumpkin
The second generation Minnie was Minnie Pumpkin. She was born feral under a porch and grew into a sweet but very shy, reclusive girl. She didn't handle change or strangers well and spent months hiding under the bed after she was spayed. She loved nothing better than a good scratching and playing with Toby, who was her best bud.
Anxious MMM has removed her eyebrows and some butt furs.
Third generation Minnie is Mica Minnie Moo. We were hoping the calming treats would work for her but its a no go. We have to re-group and try something else. She's going to have the mom removing her own eyebrows soon.
There was actually a Minnie G4. Another tortie looking for a home at the vet's, but someone else was a day faster than we were. She would have been Minnie Cooper. A couple months later, we adopted a kitten named Oui Oui instead.
