"We adopted Trixie in November 2011.  As cute as she is, she was hard to place and it took a while for her to get comfortable in our home.  With a little extra patience she turned out to be our sweet and spicy little darling.  Thank you SPCA for giving Trixie a chance when so many other shelters would not have.  P.S.  She steals toys from her sister Ruby, which is why she has two balls.  Ruby is OK with that."
