so, her full name is poppy seed o'durbman hager.
quite a mouthful for such a small cat.
(flip flop included for scale? sure)
(about to pounce)they had loved each other for 3 years and suddenly could not be in the same room together. it was on and off, a love-hate relationship, for a while there. the fights started escalating. then carl, who has always been a total sweetheart and also outweighs poppy by a good 6 lbs, scratched/sliced poppy's ear so badly that she almost needed surgery. luckily a trip to the vet for meds, and some strong-ass liquid band-aid worked magic. but after that it became clear that these two could no longer co-exist. i was beyond heartbroken to give one of them up. but my very good friend & college roommate loves cats, and was more than happy to adopt carl. (i let her choose, bc i couldn't). turns our carl is now the most spoiled rotten cat, who has the undivided attention of his new owners. he is doing great, AND i still get to see him. poppy is loving life too, with a new house to explore...as the only cat in the place. she is much calmer & happier now.
she's a tiny cat with a long name, and a big backstory. and we just love her to pieces. tim pretends that he's not a cat person, but I've caught these two cuddling more than a few times. as you can see.
