Benjy and Sue Ellen's Cats
Simon is a black shorthair who was born in 1981. We got him from the
Vet School shortly after we moved to the country. Simon is a first-rate
farm cat who likes to hunt during the warm months and sleep by the
woodstove during the cold months. He is the only cat onto which I
have bestowed sonship.
Willie is a yellow longhair. He was purchased as a laboratory cat by
the Vet School and was to be used in an experiment in which eletrodes
were to be placed in his head. After he was anesthetized and the top
of his head was shaved, he was found unsuitable for the experiment
(something about his ear canals not lining up). He found a good home
with us in the country. It seems he'd never been outside before when
we got him, so his transition to farm cat was a slow one. We got
Willie in 1984 when he was about 2 years old.
Mr. Willie died on 7/12/95........
Miss Oreo is a black and white shorthair (tuxedo cat). We got her
from the vet's where she was doing time as a blood donor. She's a
real scaredy cat, but has slowly adjusted to life on the farm.

Willie, Simon, and Oreo, plus Casey the dog and our horses.
