Janet Draper, a Smithsonian Horticulturist, said:
"Her name is Ginger, and we got her as a stray-- someone moved out of a colleagues apartment complex and left her. (Outrageous!) So she should be about....12? She is our Adventure Kitty. She is an indoor-outdoor girl. Ginger loves hanging outside--even in the rain! (She then wants to come in and sit on your lap to suck your heat/dry off!) She comes (when she feels like it) when we whistle.
"Oh, because of her great hunting abilities--she wears numerous bells, plus a funky clown ruff-type collar that supposedly makes me more visible to birds.
"She loves to have her belly in the sun -often she will fall asleep on the back deck in a position like this." (See photo below.)
"What else? She loves longing in our front yard prairie especially in the grasses! So that is Ginger!"
