This is Skittles. She runs the house…at least, we let her think she does. She was living outside with a bunch of other strays, hanging around the dumpster at the junk store by my house. She started coming around in October 2012. The previous owners of our house had been feeding the strays, but Skittles was the only one who kept coming back. For awhile she lived in our garage, because of the dogs, and when it got too cold out we brought her in and made it clear to the dogs that she lives here now. We still have to keep them separated when we can’t be right there to supervise, as the dogs are stupid and still haven’t figured out that this is a fellow pet, not prey.
