About Us
Molly, the Pet of the Day
Name: Molly
Age: Eleven years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Maine Coon Cat
Home: Newington, Connecticut, USA
   This Molly is eleven years old and is a real character. She has the strangest tastes in food. She will pass up meaty morsels in favor of lima beans and has been know to enjoy raisins from time to time. She is a bit temperamental with strangers but loves her Dad and Mom.

    Molly is a wonderful pet. She loves to watch animal shows on TV. She's fond of Animal Planet and Discovery and is most pleased with bird shows!! Molly loves cat nip and knows just where I keep it. Every evening she sits in front of the drawer and stares. If I fail to get the hint she hops onto the shelf above and knocks over knick-knacks until I get her treat. The tiny pinch of cat nip has been approved by her veterinarian!!

    We own a summer cottage that is on an island in the middle of a lake and every weekend Molly travels by boat for her weekend getaway! She never seems to mind although for safety we use a carrier. Once on the island she loves to watch birds! But as an indoor girl she never has been able to catch one. We love her to bits!!
