Meet Shimmer!

Last Wednesday, the Horton family acquired a new family member: Shimmer!

Shimmer is a female gray tabby cat, weighing in at 5.8 lbs and is 5 years old. She is a very friendly cat, often coming up to people while meowing at them for attention. She can be petted pretty much anywhere, and especially loves tummy rubs. She is the new family pet, although technically my mom owns her.

It turned out that at the time we adopted her, she had a severe urinary tract infection which went unnoticed, with her frequent visits to the litter box described as a personality trait. Now she is being given antibiotics orally twice daily, and we already see her becoming more active and playful after the first five days of treatment.

I included some pictures of her for you guys to enjoy. :)
