Cheyenne

























Cheyenne came to live with us after Tom's former room mate abandoned her. I still remember the first time I saw her, it was love at first sight (on my part, anyway; it took her a little while to decide I was OK.) She was pregnant when we got her, and Tocchet is her first born. Chey turned out to be quite a character. She was quite fiesty, and bit the dog in the behind more than once. She was very vocal, and would carry on a conversation with me for quite a while. She would also scold me for hours any time I had been away for a few days. She was pretty independent when she was young, but grew increasingly affectionate as she got older. She loved to sleep in the crook of my arm when I watched TV in the evening. We lost her to cancer in November 2004, and miss her very much. She is close always close by though, as you can see in the background of the picture of Ariel recuperating. -Ann

So sorry you had to loose sweet Cheyenne. You would think the dog would get wise and not let her behind her/him. Love cats that carry on a conversation with you. She will live on in your heart. Bless you for giving her a forever home.
