SPIKE the cat
There are 300-500 cats at the SPCA and I am a volunteer there each week, helping people choose them and bring them home. Penny the beagle came home with me the first day of volunteering. Well, ah, Spike the cat has been my pal over there, and we are fostering him here. Except everybody tells me that there is no way he isn't staying with us.
Surprisingly, the 3 dogs love him. He is a big and playful and friendly cat, full of joy. He is one of the most mellow and easy-going, friendly creatures I have ever met, a golden retriver in grey and black stripes. He even chases balls! Our 13 year old not-very-bright fat kitten Emily is mad as hell. We will, ah, see how it goes, but in truth, I cut off Spike's ID collar.....
