Gwen - joined September 2011
Gwen is a polydactyl calico cat, which means Ernest Hemingway would have loved her and she would have terrified John Ashcroft. Ever since she was first allowed outside, she has hunted and killed anything that moves. She doesn't like to be picked up and has a purr that sounds like a rusty buzzsaw. She enjoys attacking feet. Gwen is named after the protagonist in the children's classic book "Rich Cat, Poor Cat," as well as Gwen Stefani.
I met Gwen and her sister, Josey, on Facebook. Their Username is Niki Kapsambells.


  1. Goodness,she is so cute. She sounds like a fun kitty. Everyone take care.
