Ashley has been a proud owner of cats for as long as she can remember. As a child, she helped her mother foster many kittens and cats, and each one was then adopted out to a loving family. She understands that cats are much different from dogs and require that soft touch in order to gain their trust and love. She currently has three cats, Lulu, Izzy, and Notte. Although each has a story, Notte’s is the most dramatic. Notte’s mother was carrying her across a busy road when a car hit the family. Notte’s mother suffered a broken leg, but Notte had received such horrible injuries, many didn’t think she would make it. Ashley’s family helped nurse the tiny kitten back to health and now five years later, Notte has claimed Ashley’s house for her own domain.
