Michelle Has Entered The "Rescue Me" Contest

Michelle is almost 5 years old and has been with our family since she was about 1 year old. We adopted her from Toronto Animal Services after losing another cat. My twin daughters were almost 5 at the time and Corinne was devastated by the loss of Hobbes – he used to sleep on her and her sister, Kiera’s, pillow and I would find him curled around their heads! Anyway, I think Michelle had been stray and had kittens after her rescue at TAS. Corinne picked her out and asked if she could hold her. When I looked at her cage card to see her name I then said to Corinne, “Do you know what her name is?” When I told her she gasped, “That’s my middle name!”  I think that sealed the deal! Michelle, also called Mish or Mishy or Pretty Girl has turned into quite a character! She rubs everything, does rolie-polies, she chats, she loves our Sheltie and learned to walk on a harness and leash so she could go for walks with the dog and me!
