I took this picture of my daughter in the spring. The cat she’s holding is Ladie, our family pet. Ladie just wandered into our back yard one day and rubbed herself up against my oldest daughter. She picked her up and then Ladie never left our home again. It’s been a few years since then, and Ladie has turned out to be the best pet we ever had. We suspect that she might have been one of those pets that people are forced to abandon when they have to leave their homes in a hurry after the bank has foreclosed on their property. Abandoned pets on foreclosed properties is a big problem here in Nevada. Ladie also could have been raised with a dog because she behaves more like a canine. By the way, she is a Scottish Fold, hence the small ears.
