Hi, I'm new here and a relatively new owner. I brought home one of the barn cats from the racetrack I work at.

My girl Shania is a 2yr old dsh tortie and as soon as I figure out how to post a picture of her I will. She got her name from one of the trainers in the barn. She was dropped off last summer at the racetrack and found her way into our barn; the trainer shoved her away and told her to get lost when she was rubbing against him and the horse's legs looking for attention while he was trying to change the horse's shoes. The cat wandered away.

This trainer went home after work and there happened to be a documentry on Shania Twain on tv his wife was watching. He learnt that Shania means "I'm on my way" in Ojibwa. He remembered telling the cat to get lost, remembered how she just wandered away after that and named the cat Shania the next day.

Long story short, she worked her way into being the mascot of our stable, I fell in love with her and took her home in the fall when it started getting colder out and the mice were starting to hybernate for winter.
