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

A calico wandered into our backyard one day. We fed her occasionally, then every day, then always when she slowly became ours. We found out later her previous owners moved away and neglected to take her with them... Well we were the lucky ones, because she was an absolute angel and a great addition to our family. She was an "outdoor cat" and very independent. She was incredibly sweet, quiet, and mellow. Even as an outdoor cat, she was always pretty clean. She also got along with people young and old very well (I'm not sure about other animals since we didn't have any, but I'm sure she would have been friendly with them too). Unfortunately, she died of cancer a few years later. I'm not even a cat person, but really I loved that cat!
