Here is the story of Snickers for those who want to read it.
One day back in 2000 I stopped in at a local Pet Store to look at kittens and the cutest little Calico kitten stood up an meowed at me and my heart melted. - Oddly enough I can't seem to find pictures (that was before the computer and digital photos) of her as a kitten.
We brought her home and oh my she was a "mean" little thing. Always biting and scratching you. - I did not like her very much as a kitten. As time went on though I came to love her very much.
Snickers had many nicknames: Doodlebug, Snickerdoodles,
Snacky Snickers (for her love of all things food),
The Fastest Tongue in the West
Snooty Snickers (because she was standoffish) - She was a "loner" cat most of the time but on rare occasions she would spend time with some of the other cats:
Snarly Snickers (for when she was in a bad mood)
Sometimes she would come in my office while I was at the computer and hop up on my lap so I could pet her. I loved those times.
She loved soft blankets to lay on, catnip, eating grass on rare occasions when she was allowed outside (which wasn't often as we believe in indoor only cats for safety)
L-R: Nuisance (who has passed on) Snickers and Dottie - 2007.
We will miss her sweet face. We loved the little "hammer" marking by her nose, her long whiskers that had silver tips, her short little ears and legs, the way she ran was so cute, her head bumping when she wanted you to wake up, watching her pad the bedding, her gobbling up food and never gaining weight. She was a tiny little cat, never weighing over 5 1/2 pounds.
Out of all her nicknames there are two that define Snickers:
You will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
