Name: Billie Jean

Nickname: BooBoo, MooMoo, Bills, Billbo

Species/breed: Snooty Tabby (you can look, but don’t touch her! She really only likes her roommates, haha)

Age: 8 years

Fave food: The fluffy parts of popcorn and her medicated dry food that helps keeps her ‘calm’ (she’s a skittish little lady).

Special tricks: Making blankets into cocoon/igloo shapes to sleep in.

Best quality: She loves to sit on you and keep you company every chance she gets. She grunts sometimes if you pet her and she’s not expecting it.

Social media platform or handle, if available:  She doesn’t care that much about social media and thinks her Mum spends a little too much time on it!
