Fiona "stole" a late-night snack from her human!

Fiona

Your name:   Megan Schroeder

Job title/department:   Admissions

What kind of pet do you have (dog, cat, bird, etc)?   Cat

What is your pet’s name?   Fiona

How did you come up with this name?  Fiona's name is a combination of the character from Shrek, and the female lead of the TV show Burn Notice

How old is your pet?    7 years old

What is your pet’s gender?  Female

Describe your pet in three words:  Soft, Sneaky, Sweet

What is the thing your pet cannot live without?   Fiona cannot live without Kitty Supper. (Or the Kitty Supper song!)

Can your pet do tricks? If so, what?   Fiona excels at sleeping, whining when I feed her late, and attacking feet during an exciting game of "Under the Blanket Monster." But, she is honestly the best cat I've ever had. She is a big snuggle bug and sleeps with me every night. She has the personality of a dog, all wrapped up in a cat package!

What is the best trick your pet has taught you?  Fiona has taught me patience and how to love unconditionally

Do you have a nickname for your pet?   Fi with the Goatee (Check out her SWEET goatee!)

You know your pet is in a good mood when he/she does this:   Fiona will sit on my lap and head-butt me

Your pet’s favorite spot to hangout is:   Fiona loves sitting in her window or on my lap or wherever the food is

Favorite toy:   Fiona loves her possum on a string

One habit you would love to change:    Fiona is very food motivated because food is love in my house

Does your pet prefer to play with people, or other animals?    Fiona is shy, but does eventually warm up to people and other animals.

Does your pet like children?   Yes

If you could ask your pet one question and they’d be able to answer it, what would it be? Why can't you get along with the dog?!

Can your pet read your emotions?    Absolutely. Fiona follows me when I'm feeling down, and will curl up with me in bed. She definitely calms my soul.

Funniest moment you’ve had with your pet:    Fiona is very sneaky. One night, my husband made a late-night sandwich for himself and was eating at the dining room table. He stepped away for 30 seconds to get his drink from the kitchen, and came back to Fiona on the table eating his sandwich! She really is a dog in a cat suit!

What is the most rewarding aspect of owning your pet?   How happy she is when I get home. Yes...even a kitty. She lets me hold her a hug her and squish her. She makes my heart smile.
