Dinner is served. Tonight's main course will be 4 year old Oreo

Truly a Cat with 9 Lives!

I found Oreo as a wee kitten. It was New Year's Eve 2004. I was visiting my sister in Springfield, MO. One day we walked into her garage and there was the cutest kitten I had ever seen. I immediately said "Look at the little Oreo"! she was a feral kitty and quite skittish. My sister coaxed her out with some tuna and we took her in the house. I decided to name her Oreo. At the time she was so small that she barely filled my hand.
I brought her back to Iowa and took her to the vet. The vet guessed her age to be about 3 months yet her size was that of a 6 week old kitten.
This little muffin didn't even have grooming skills so I had to clean her with baby wipes.
I also had to feed her as she wasn't used to eating and tired easily. Within about 10 days she was grooming herself and eating like a champ.
At night she slept curled up next to me under the covers...in fact to this day that is her preferred place to sleep. She is not a fan of cold weather and looks for warmth wherever she can find it.
Oreo is completely devoted to me and follows me wherever I go. In the mornings she "talks" to me while I am getting ready for the day.
She loves to play fetch with wadded up paper, hair ties, milk lid rings, and bread ties. If one of these items is left lying out she will immediately find it and claim it for her own.
She is the snuggliest cat i've ever know and greets me everyday when I come home.
