MooCow

MooCow was our Holstein-colored kitty.  She came to live with Tim when he was in grad school,  and shares our home with us for many years.  We would often get asked about her name and how unusual it is.  Well, there's two responses to that:  1) We didn't come up with it, her previous owner did, and 2) If you saw her you'd understand!  Moo looks like a miniature Holstein cow, with a perfect cow pattern.  

In early March 2006, MooCow was diagnosed to be in the late stages of Chronic Renal (kidney) Failure, an incurable disease. After a few weeks of performing various daily treatments to keep her as healthy as possible, her life ended on March 23. She is missed.

William and MooWilliam was generally very gentle with Moo, and she was surprisingly tolerant, for a cat who traditionally wasn't too fond of children.

Moo and BaileyFor a long time, Moo was very suspicious of Bailey, our Golden Retriever. She'd rather keep to herself (other than being with us). But she did manage to share the loveseat with Bailey in the two pictures above, taken in our old home. As time went on, they started tolerating each other better.

Sign of the end times??MooCow and Bailey were NOT friends for the first 3 or so years that Bailey came to join our happy home. In the early days, they couldn't even stand to be in the same room: Moo would hiss and, if she could, swat him in the face, which in turn made Bailey avoid her. But as time went on, they grew to tolerate, almost enjoy each other. This picture wasn't posed -- they both decided to share the loveseat together on their own.
