"Tinkerbell" is for Dara. Tinkerbell is a 7-year-old orange tabby domestic shorthair. Dara adopted her as a kitten when she was in college and was dating her boy friend John. Tinkerbell blended into the family when they got married in 2010. As Dara and her husband have no children, Tinkerbell is like their child. She is energetic, loving, silly, and vocal. Everyone who meets her loves her instantly; she is not a typical cat that only wants affection on her terms, but is more like a puppy that constantly wants your attention and love.
She talks to John and Dara when they come home, she sits between us on the couch and sleeps between us in the bed! Her "motor" purrs so loudly that you can hear her across a room. They have nicknames for her, but "Pretty" is the one John uses the most. Tinkerbell is a daddy's girl!
