One of my favorite pets was my calico cat Ms.Kitty. I received her from a friend who already had too many pets and could no longer take care of her. She was just a baby when I got her, but she was already full of excitement and wonder. She was a beautiful mix of grey, black, and brown calico spots, and my vet told her she was considered a 'tortoise' shell breed. I was so excited. For a while Ms.Kitty and I lived together with our puppy pal in our small apartment and we were happy. I would often catch my dog jumping up on the windowsill, mimicking my kitten. What was even better was the day I came home to find my kitten, growling! It seems that living in close quarters, my pets had managed to switch habits! After I moved out of my smaller apartment I moved in with a friend of mine, and my cute kitten fit right in with her beautiful Persians. At first her two cats would pick on my little kitty, but after catching her in the kitchen one afternoon while she was cornered with no where to go, she scared both of those cats to death when she started to growl at them! I no longer have my lovely kitten because she escaped outside one afternoon and I never did see her again. I'm sure she was off having many more kitten/puppy adventures.
