My calico cat just showed up one day. I tried to get rid of her since I’m allergic to cats, tossing pine cones at her but she refused to leave. Finally we adopted the stubborn little feline and we’ve been glad ever since. She’s a great hunter, killing moles, mice, etc, but we do hate when she also kills sweet little birds too. We love to watch her, she’s quite an inspiration and a great model.
