This is Salem, aka Squeaky, aka the-unholy-Jersey-terror, aka Minimushka, aka Nekko Chan. Salem is now 4 years old and I got her since she was 5 weeks old, she is my cat, and a royal pain in the wazoo. She got her name because she was found at Salem, near the nuclear power plant, and because she is so black that she looks like the cat of a witch. Her favorite thing was ( and is )  running after me the whole day. No more privacy for me. She wanted to play all the time, her motto was, if it is on the floor, it is a toy. Therefore, she was knocking things to the floor all the time to play with them. She buried a cigarette lighter under the fridge, she emptied the ashtrays, knocked nuts and bolts off the shelf, chases everything that moves ( she terrorizes the other two big girls ) played the answering machine, learned how to open doors, jumped on the bed at 5:00 am and patted my face with her tiny paws, she thinks we can type 2hands-2paws at the same time on the puter...ack....She has a thing for boxes, specially beer boxes. But she is a real sweet girl with a beautiful temper, always ready to play, a petting or let you know in her own way that she loves you. And she got babies 2 years ago ! First Cricket and later Merry Hell and 2 brothers that found a good home together. She appointed me official nanny, and she used to go out leaving me with the babies...
