In Jan, 2003, Spreckles attempted to lay claim to the top of the hutch,
despite the fact that Vinnie is the one who's usually there.
Susan said, "If the phone rings, she's going to have a heart attack!"
(Yes, that's a scar on her neck - it's much better than it was before!)
In early May 2001, Spreckles contemplated the dangers of everyday life,
and realized that there are times to lash one's tail, and time to wrap
one's tail about one's self.
This long-shadowed picture was taken in the Fall of 1999,
and is one of the few instances where she was willing to stand
still long enough to get her picture taken!
(Lying down poses less of a problem, of course.)
This was also taken in the Fall of 1999,
and it demonstrates Proof of Catness: She knows how to strike the standard
meatloaf pose, complete with wrapped-around tail. Isn't that reassuring?
Her name, "Spreckles" comes from a combination of "spots" and "freckles," neither of which is an accurate description of a calico, but it'll do. (It's also an allusion to a Larry Niven creation - do you know which one?) We rarely call her by name, preferring such cute terms as "Kitty-Boo." Further Proof of Catness: She rarely responds, no matter what we call her.
