Arrival Story:
Gertie and her brothers and sisters were found with a malnourished mommy in an old burnt out building. They had survived for two weeks with no food and water. We knew she was ours from the moment we met her. Soon after, she showed up at our house and took over for good.

Gertie loves paper towels. I don't know where she gets them from sometimes, but if you leave the room for a second, you can guarantee that Gertie will have wrestled one or more paper towels to the floor and begun to systematically dismantle them. Her main goal in life is to tear them apart and sometimes eat them (if she's hungry). She also really enjoys bringing her treasures under the bed where no one can get at them. Every week or so we have to go under there and see what she's stockpiled. The results are often very surprising (HEY-that's where my old sports bra [or rent check, or diet coke can, or diamond necklace] went!!!!) Lastly, Gertie is a first class chameleon. Sometimes we look at her and think she looks like a little reindeer. Sometimes we look and she looks just like a lion, sometimes she looks like a fox, and sometimes she even looks like a West Coast gangsta rapper, you just never know with her!!!
