Hi, my name is Skittles, aka Skits, or Skit Skat. I am 7 years old, born in Ft. Myers, FL. I came to Michigan in 2015, and I am still getting used to this cooler weather. In case you were wondering, yes, I was named after the candy; I was a real rainbow and brightened my owner’s world.
I LOVE to eat. My favorite food is tuna. Yum yum! Unfortunately, I was recently diagnosed with diabetes so that's kinda put an end to that. Thanks to the wonderful people at the Kentwood Cat Clinic, I've started insulin injections and started a new, diabetes-friendly diet.
My favorite toy is my catnip firefly. It looks like a 10 year old teddy bear. I always make sure it is close to me. I love hair ties as though they were my own kittens. I love batting them across the floor but I also make sure to feed them as well. You can find me taking them into the kitchen and putting them into my food and water dishes. My babies need to eat, too! Lol.
I love snuggling on my granny's lap, it's so comfy. I just started sleeping with her... she often asks what took me so long.
People say I’m a little quirky. I’ve been known to go through granny's purse or, for that matter, any bag that one of our guests might bring over. Granny says it's kinda embarrassing. I just like to rummage through and see what I can find. Shame on me!
I have a great life at my granny's. She treats me like a little person. I look forward to many more years with my granny, brightening her day!
