Hi all animal lovers, my name is Bonnie Gail Carter.
I thought I'd share the story about how I got my long haired Calico cat named Cali.
At the time I was living in Lafayette, Indiana but I now reside in Peru, Indiana. About seven years ago I called Petsmart and asked the man who answered the phone "Do you have any cats?"
He said, "Well we have this one cat that keeps biting everybody and she's depressed and won't eat."
Most people would pass on a cat that was biting everybody but instead I said, "I'll be right over to get her." I didn't have a car so I took a metal cart on wheels with me on the bus to go to get her. I bought her litter box, litter, and Purina real chicken with hairball control for her to eat. They put her in a box with vent holes in it on the top of my cart.
On the bus ride home I kept talking to her telling her things like "everything is going to be alright now that you have somebody who loves you."
When I looked up I saw the people on the bus looking at me like I was crazy. I told them, "I'm not talking to a box. My new cat is inside the box." A couple of people asked me questions about her like, "What kind of cat and what is her name?" I told them that they didn't know her name or how old she was either.
