Twinkie

Twinkie came to the RAPS sanctuary from the same place that brought us Mooshie, Cara and others.


Twinkie can come across as a bit stand-offish, and not a lot of people pay attention to her as a result. This is really too bad, since it doesn't take much time with her to see that she's a sweetheart.

While she gets along well enough with other cats, Twinkie used to be really close friends with a cat named Dottie, who has since passed away. She must have felt the loss of her friend very deeply, as the two were apparently inseparable. Leslie says that Twinkie was friendlier with people when Dottie was around.


So don't take Twinkie's stand-offishness at face value. She's more interested in making friends than she lets on.
