Shy


Shy, also known as ShyGurl, is the one looking out the window. Ginger is on the couch. Shy and her sister Quest were feral kittens living with their mother and brother in a garden belonging to one of her Daddy's co-workers. Her Daddy adopted them when they were about 5-6 weeks old. They are 13 now. Shy got her name because she hides from humans. She will even run away from her Mom if Mom moves toward her too suddenly. When it comes to other kitties, though, Shy is anything but. She loves to chase Ginger all around the house. She chases Quest sometimes, too. Oddly enough, she doesn't seem to have chased Q2 yet, but I'll bet that is coming up. Shy has a sensitive tummy and barfs a lot. She loves to barf on the carpet under the piano. Her Mom wishes that she would barf on the kitchen floor, but Shy will actually run from the kitchen when the need to barf comes upon her.

                                       Shy likes to hide when people are near,
                                       But around other kitties she knows no fear.
                                              She'll haul off and whap them
                                              And chase them and fwap them.
                                        Her alpha cat status she holds very dear.

I am happy to read that there are other shy cats ! She exactly behaves like my Kim ! Kim loves all cats but no humans, strange because she was since baby in our family.
Nice limericks ! You never ran out of phantasy !

Ours always did the same thing. Why throw up on the tile when the carpet is only twenty or thirty feet away?
