Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)
Posted Jul 03, 2012
I was little girl when we adopted Artemiss. A stray cat had a litter of kittens in the wall of the bike shop down the street from my house so we adopted one of them.
Artemiss was pretty independent but he love to snuggle with me. He was actually very protective over me ( which is odd for a cat haha ) He would sleep with me at night a growl at anyone if they came into my room. When I would pet him he would DROOL! haha he was the best! Like most mixed breeds he wasn't expensive to keep.
He didn't like other cats AT ALL and when I brought home another stray kitten ( this was when he was an adult ) he attacked the poor fellow bad enough to where we had to take the kitten to the vet to be sewed up. That was really scary - but Artemiss eventually got used to the other kitten and they lived peacefully.
He died after I had left home from old age I suppose. I will always remember him!! He was a great first cat for a little girl.
