Where did your name come from?
When I was brought to my momma I had been in the sun so long my purrteh spots were almost white so momma named me Ghost.
How did you find your mama?
Me and what momma thinks was my mate was left behind by me former owner when dat person traveled through New Mexico. Whoever it was stayed at an RV park and when dey left dey left me and my mate behind and never came back fur us. The park owner told someone he knew that he was gonna shoot us and that person told mommas friend who called momma. She had her friend bring us to her so she could find us good homes but we kinda adopted each other once she saw me and my mate.
Can you tell people a bit about your breed, British Short Hairs?
Da momma tolds me dat British short hairs are English cats that originated from the domestic cats of Rome. We are da teddy bears of cats cuz as we are easygoing in nature, talk infrequently and are relatively calm. We hab dense coats to protect us and large round eyes (better to do the please stare with) and no breed specific health problems. We also have numerous colors and patterns.

I grooms meself several times daily and da momma or da hoomin sisfur brushes me twice a week. I also get a nutritious food dat helps my fur stay shiny and healthy.

How do you get along with them?
We all play and eat together and sleep together but we still have our arguments and have what da momma calls “hissy fights” to settle them. Da momma don’t let us actual fight so if we disagree we hiss and settle it that way.
