The family cat did not want her picture taken! Usually she will run & hide when she sees me with the camera. She is 11 years old and was born in Ei-cho, Japan. She is my daughter's cat and loves her dearly, but she wants to live here with my son and I. I am home all the time and my daughter works. This cat is not a helper-cat like Dora. But she is a joy to have around and is very intelligent. Cats sure make life more enjoyable!
