The Story of Ghost...


Ghost is our 5 year old grey DSH.  She appeared on our back patio when she was a few weeks old along with a few of her feral siblings.  However, she lacked their ability to sense danger or react.  We could tell that 'something' was not right with her, and consequently took her in. The Vet diagnosed her with mental and physical problems and the prognosis was not good.  BUT she has done really well. Despite her rigid expression (which never changes), she is really very sweet.

What I wanted to say here is why we called her "Ghost".  Well, she was very small... and grey... and since our floors are several shades of grey slate, once inside, we could never see her.  She would run along the floor and blend right in... a little grey blur.  Now she's bigger (a lot bigger), but still when she lies on the charcoal grey carpet on our stairs, she's apt to get stepped on if not careful. And another reason we named her that was because she appeared outside around October 31st... and then disappeared inside into the slate... so we started calling her our 'little grey ghost'.

Ghost in her 'youth'....

Rian, so lovely to receive your visit and a comment at sixtyfivewhatnow.
I've inherited my son's cat in this last year; she has become such a dear companion.

I'm glad for you. 2 of our 6 cats came to us the same way. Julie was my oldest's son's until he married someone with large dogs. So she came to live with Grandma. Molly was found by my youngest son and dropped off with us. Both are very sweet girls.
