"Willow is a 10 year
old male cat, who lives at Navlet's Garden Center in Martinez, CA. He has
worked for us since he was 6 weeks old. He has free run of the nursery, day
and night, and supervises all the goings on... in the morning he is so thrilled
to see someone that runs up meowing to whoever is in first in, and has to
be picked up and cuddled while he 'tells his story' of what he did the night
before. His main hobbies are sleeping on or in displays,( which often prompts
the question.. 'Is that a real cat?' ), mooching lunch from employees in the
break room, eating the catnip on the herb table, jumping on people's shoulders
(which can be disconcerting if you aren't expecting it... he's quite large!
its a habit we started when he was a kitten), investigating the back of trucks
that bring us plants several times a week, and catching the odd mouse or two.
Will is a wonderful cat with a great personality... slightly jaded and cranky
at times, sure, but at his age he's earned the right!" Story and pictures
