She was feral-born so she’s skittish even after living in this cat heaven for 11 years with an incredible wait staff.
Her biggest notoriety came when she fell out of a second floor window and landed in the lilac bush. She didn’t hurt herself and it didn’t keep her off of windowsills.
Like many people, she has a weight thing. When she’s upset or nervous she eats to medicate. When you have a multi-cat family it’s hard to track who is eating what. That forced me to feed the other cats on shelves that she can’t access. She doesn’t like that.
Until her major weight gain which happened when Morgan joined the household, she could jump as high as any other cat. Not so much now. She’s more of a hopper than a jumper but she can still get on windowsills and comfy chairs.
She lost almost five pounds over the course of a year. That was 27% of her weight. Weight Watchers would approve. She’ll never be thin but she’s healthy.
She is the easiest cat ever (unless you count how difficult it is to catch her for a vet trip). She loves all the cats even pesky Morgan.
She chases Morgan which is pretty funny as her legs splay out as she rounds corners at a high speed causing a belly flop landing.
No flash, not showy and occasionally silly, Hazel is an all around great cat. The kind that you would walk by at the shelter and not take a second look at.
She’s home though and pretty happy. That’s all that counts.
