Persephone the Domestic Shorthair, the Cat of the Day
Name: Persephone
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Domestic Shorthair
Home: Flagstaff, Arizona, USA
   We received Persephone from a woman who posted an ad on the Internet. From the moment we got her, we fell in love. One of the most special things about her, is she was born on Halloween! Although Persephone is full grown, she only weighs 5.4 lbs; we think this is because she burns so much energy running laps around the house. When we asked the vet about her weight, they said she was just built that way- she's a runt! It also gives us an excuse to share most of our food with her- she doesn't complain much about this either. Persephone loves to sit in the window and watch the neighbors' puppy run in the yard (they also used to play together but the puppy got too big now and crushes poor Persephone).

     She loves everyone that comes into the house, almost too much if they're not cat-lovers! She'll crawl all over anyone and try to groom them! If we sleep too late she'll try to wake us up by patting her little paws on our backs and heads, it's so cute it works. She sleeps in our bed every night, and is always ready for a big bowl of kitty food in the morning. She'll tell you she wants it, even if there's already food in the bowl! Her favorite food is bread, so we can't leave bread out anymore because we'll wake up to a torn open bag and pieces of bread all over the floor. She has three special skills, one is the ability to reach into Pringle's cans or bags of chips and remove one with the greatest of easy. She can also sit on command, and do another trick we call "Halloween," which is when she will arch her back and walk in a circle for food (like the little iconic black Halloween kitties).

     Persephone is one of the best things that has ever happened to me, and I think she is very special.
