Minnie and Houdini look very similar, but Minnie (ironically) is smaller than Houdini. More on that in her bio below.
There is one thing that makes me sad about her, she’s more of a loner and doesn’t really like human attention. She likes to hang out with us, but doesn’t want to be held. It makes me sad because she is so darn cute. 🙁
Here’s more on her story. (You can always access this by going to the “Meet The Kids” drop down menu at the top of the website.)
Funny story behind Minnie. We originally named her after Minnie Mouse because we loved Disney at the time. The ironic thing was she stayed tiny so everyone thought that her name was Mini. Little did we know how accurate her name would be.
She was a package deal. I met Onyx first (you’ll meet him tomorrow) and was going to take him home for sure. Then the vet techs told me that I needed to look at another kitty they had. They brought Minnie out and she was the cutest thing. Everyone thought that I wasn’t going to take Onyx and was going to adopt Minnie instead. How could I refuse when they bring this peanut out? (She hasn’t gotten any bigger from that time.)
I surprised them and adopted both of them!
The only downside with Minnie is that she does not like to interact with us and is somewhat scared of us. I’m going to write an article about how to deal with that situation. We are still working with her to get her to open up to us. She’s not nasty, she just likes to “exist”.
Slowly, her nose is turning black. She had a total pink nose and developed a black spot (we’ve had it checked out and it’s nothing but a pigment change). This was one of the times that we could get close to her.
