I am an invasive plant (I mean cat). I like to spread my flowers (I mean love) across the world. I can land in your yard (I mean your lap) and take over that empty spot in the yard (I mean your heart). I am carefree and kind (I really am). I am beautiful and simple like a flower. I can make you sneeze with my pollen (I mean whiskers). I really need to change my name, I'm confusing myself! I am Tansy, the flower (I mean cat) with a heart of gold. Come and see how I can blossom into your life.

Headmistress Minerva here with my daily schedule. At 9 am I will be attending a meeting with the Department of Magical Law Enforcement about how to keep the dogs from barking past 5 pm. At 10 am I will be having my morning tea in my bowl with a side of scrumptious catnip. At 10:30 am I will be sharpening my nails on this amazing board that they call a scratching post. At 11 am I will take my place on my bed as I start to nap (1 of 7). At 2 pm I will wake to eat and drink and take my place as the Gryffindor cats come in for their afternoon session. Come 4 pm and many mice chasing and spells gone wrong, I will wind down to a nice sip of chamomile water and tuna. If you want a well-organized, shapeshifting, sweet cat then I am the cat for you.

Story
Meet your new bestie, Teddie :) Teddie is ready to give all of his love and affection to a special person, just as long as they give it right back to him. Teddie will be by your side at all times and loves to follow you around the house. He is still learning how to be an indoor kitty, but so far he loves anything that rolls, is obsessed with lasers and any light, and will beg for your attention. Originally Teddie was a frequent visitor many nights in a row looking for food, water and comfort. He was safely brought inside my home in the beginning of May and has truly turned into the nuttiest house cat. Teddie still needs to receive his most recent shots and also will need to be neutered.
