“Chyna” — who is now known as “Olivia Adelaide Octopussycat” — is doing fantastic! From the moment we met her, she has been nothing short of a dream girl and has quickly become part of our family, making our home hers as well. She is so smart, charming and ladylike, lively and loving. As you may recall, she enjoys kneading (“making biscuits”), talking to us, playing with catnip toys, exploring, and following us around.
She certainly has a healthy appetite and loves to snuggle up in a fleece blanket and purr with us on the couch, especially for nap time. She’s most active at night, in a playful way and not at all destructive–with some more time, I think she’ll figure out when her human friends are more active. 😉
Today, Olivia had her wellness check at Tysons Corner Animal Hospital. She travelled well in her soft carry bag in the car and when we arrived at the clinic, she was pretty shy but still calm and friendly. The vet said she’s in perfect health and is “especially sweet natured.” She had a booster shot and made no fuss about it. Knock wood, we have had no problems–not even with scratching or the litterbox. For a youngster, she is rather elegant, elegant and poised. We think she thinks she’s more than a human-almost a demigoddess. Her Grace is our first feline family member, and we are utterly surprised and delighted at how wonderful she is. We don’t know her “story” or previous circumstances but whatever happened, she is an angel, and we truly are blessed to have each other. Attached are a few pictures. She is quite the character. We look forward to many, many years with Olivia. Many thanks to you and the Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation. We appreciate and admire your organization–we’ll be sure to let friends and family know of the miraculous work you do every day.
