ometimes, you're just grouchy don't want to be bothered, and, sometimes, certain people just rub you the wrong way. Sometimes, it's both. After more thoroughly questioning Rebecca about her cat, Marshmallow, I began to learn that it's both. Marshmallow can be sweet if approached and treated properly, but she is not a cuddle-cat and not a lap-sitter.
Marshmallow is a five-year-old brown tabby girl who Rebecca raised and bottle-fed as a kitten, and she was stuck fifty feet high on the lowest limb of a tall Sweet Gum tree in Covington, Louisiana. The tree was at the edge of a wooded area that had been heavily damaged by Hurricane Ida a year ago, so there were downed trees and cut stumps of small trees that had been cleared all around the cat's tree. This would a horrible and deadly place for a cat to fall out of a tree.
Rebecca and her family were all very relieved and took Marshmallow back inside to recover. She sent a picture of her to me later to show her getting some much-needed rest in a soft, comfy spot.
