The Cats (Cast?) of Second Guess Farm: Skittles

Skittles is probably the tiniest of the cats living here at Second Guess, but she’s the spunkiest. There’s good reason why we refer to her as the “Goddess.”

Contemplative kitty.

She came to live here when her family moved overseas and simply could not take her. It wasn’t for them not wanting to bring Skittles, it’s just that this little powerhouse is hyperthyroid and has congestive heart failure. The trip would likely have killed her.

So naturally, she came to live here. Her name does start with an ‘S’ after all!

Skittles found a sunbeam and is not about to share.

At first, she was angry and very, very pointy. I’ve bled a few times because of her. I have leather gloves handy for pilling time.

Snoooooore. (And she does snore. Spike [in the background] doesn’t mind because he’s deaf.)

Now, however, she’s decided that I’m OK, and will happily enough sleep in my lap.

This little girl has some serious health issues and will be taking medications twice a day for the rest of her life. But now that she’s settled in, she’s another happy member of the family.
