9 Years





Fast Facts
  • Mellow happy girl
  • One of six pets
  • Runs with canine sister


Autumn is 9-years old now! Audra adopted her from As Good as Gold two years ago when she was nearly 7.

Audra says Autumn was at first timid and shy, but is now very close to her family and is a “mellow and super-

happy” girl. Autumn is so close to mom, that she follows her from room to room. Autumn has delicately “pushed” visitors or her canine sister out of the way so she can have mom all to herself!

Of the six pets in the home, Autumn admires her feline-sibling, Puddy Cat, the most.  Autumn also has a canine sister, Sadie. Sadie is the resident alpha dog, but she and Autumn play daily doing zoomies around the yard, and often steal bones from each another. Sadie also taught Autumn more fun things like rolling in the grass and running in their fenced back yard. She’s also become a good leash walker!

There are several lakes near their home. Thanks to Sadie and her humans, Autumn has become more comfortable in the water and likes floating a bit as long as she keeps getting scratches.

Each day at 5 a.m. Audra is awakened by a smiling Autumn standing over her bed. Despite the early morning attention, her family finds Autumn to be a “quirky” sweetheart and is thrilled to have her as part of the family.
