I've always considered myself a "dog person." I grew up with dogs so when we wound up at the Golden Valley Animal Humane Society last September I figured I'd just humor my husband and 4-year-old by visiting the cat rooms. We took out several cats to play, all very sweet but I was not in the market to bring one home. We already had a dog, two hermit crabs and a fish tank - that was enough for me. Then we saw Chloe (named Baby at the shelter). So timid. But her eyes! And her underbite! We brought her into a private room to visit and that was all it took. Her sweetness. She was so gentle. Little did we know just how wonderful she was! Since she's come to live with us she's been the perfect addition. She is so smart, so lively yet still so sweet! She learned to play fetch, her favorite activity, and has us throwing her chosen alien toys around the house daily. She also carries on quite the conversation and will give you her opinion on everything from cat toys to which room is coziest to sleep in. She's a snuggler and even wraps herself up with our little dachshund, Heidi. So much personality packed into one fuzzy package. I still consider myself a "dog person," but our Chloe has definitely changed my perception of the "perfect pet." We couldn't love her more.
