Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)

When I was about 5, my neighbors cat had kittens and I talked my mom into letting me have one. I picked Winkie out of the litter because he was black and grey stripped and his stripes made a bullseye on his sides. He got his name a couple days later when we noticed he winked at you. We had Winkie for about 7 years before he got sick and has to be put to sleep. I cried because he was so tolerant and was my best friend. Along with our dog, Gidget, Winkie would let my sister and I dress him up in doll clothes and push him around in our doll strollers and play with him like a baby. He was a very loveable and awesome cat!
