The picture on the right shows Michelle resting on the bed in Spring.~~~~~~~~>
Michelle looks like a kitten, but she is 4 years old. She is an outdoor cat that catches mice, chipmunks, rabbits, and birds. She even got sprayed by the skunk more than once! We would only let her inside for a few minutes just to eat her meals and then bring her back outside. When the horrible stench faded a bit, we gave her a bath and that got most of the smell away. But that was about 2 years ago, and now Michelle is wise now and learned her lesson to STAY AWAY FROM SKUNKS!
Her birthday is on he 4th of July, 2008. Pretty cool, huh? On the 21st of July, 2009 she had 4 kittens! We gave them away to family friends with Michelle willing to give them up. A few months ago, we got to go to the owners house of one of her kittens and got to see him! He is 2x bigger than his own mother!
Right now Michelle is living a happy life with us and probably for 10 more years. As I'm typing, I see her outside the window wandering around our backyard.
On this bottom picture you see Michelle snoozing on cozy blankets in the winter.
