If my friends could see me now!  I was picked up as a stray, and nobody wanted me because they said I was too wild. Then my owner met me, and she fell in love--with ME. HSCI said I would kill her cat, and that I required major training. But my owner said she had to have me. After installing gates to protect Murphy the Cat, also an HSCI alum, my owner brought me home.

With the guidance of our new friend, Bob Ryder of Pawsitive Transformations, we learned how to work with each other. I learned manners, and I calmed down a lot.

We're not perfect, but Murphy and I have become great friends. I share my water dish with her, and we play chase around the house--until she runs under one of the gates. But she always comes back out to chase me!

Thank you, HSCI and Pawsitive Transformations, for helping me find a home where I am wanted--and loved.
