So why did we name the Cat Storm Chaser?
We get that a lot. So here is the Story...
I got two kittens 13 years ago from a friend. I told her I wanted to two males, and I did not care what they looked like, just that they needed to be males. So I go and pick up the two boys, one a very pretty tiger stripe, black with gray and brown stripes, circles, and one all white with little bits of orange.
I bring them home, I had no idea as want to name them, and coming from me, that is hard to believe. I have names for animals I do not have yet. So I watched them explore the house for 2 days before naming them.
The tiger striped cat would tear around the house like he was a storm, like a tornado, or twister. So his name became TWISTER. The white cat was always following the the striped cat, Twister, so I named him STORM CHASER. Since most twisters have storm chasers chasing after them.
There names fit them well! Twister always ran everywhere, tore up things and just plain made a mess. Storm chaser was a bit more relaxed, but was always not far away from twister.
We had Twister for four years, he decided to move in with a new family down the road, they gave him better cat food. he would come and visit us for a few years. The new family loved him and they had some little kids that spoiled him. They moved away and took the cat. Which we were fine with.
Storm Chaser stayed and never followed Twister to the new family. He was happy to at his home base and get all the attention he wanted.
Storm Chaser is now 13 years old. He is now a traveling cat. We drive around in the RV and he has seen many things. He has been to many states, and he loves to go for a ride.
We have harness trained him, and leash trained him. Who ever said you can not train cats, is mistaken. Storm Chaser was 11-12 years old before we leash trained him.
So now in his older age, he sits and looks out the window, sleeps, wants more food, and goes for walks; but only on his terms and when he wants too.
