Hi. My name is Emma – well, really, formally Emma Jean. Sitting with me is my bestie, Tom …. I prefer to call him “Tom Cat”.
I was born in 2013 and that’s the same year that I adopted my folks, Tom and Sue Gideon. I realized early on that not all 4-leggeds had the same opportunities that I had living in a safe home with plenty of food. I convinced my folks to begin donating to West Columbia Gorge Humane Society in 2015. I love all the good that is provided for the less fortunate cats and dogs, helping them find their forever homes.
I’ve been asked to share something unique about myself. Well, I was born with a few extra toes … 22 total (no brag, just fact). I’m often asked “What do I do with all those extra toes – don’t they just get in the way”? Well, I use the extras like a thumb. I’ve taught myself to open and close lever handled doors. I have to admit that it comes in quite handy at times.
I must say, I really enjoyed the WCGHS online auction last year – I don’t normally get to attend these important functions. It was a real treat to learn about all of the support and good being provided to the 4-leggeds that need the help.
I am excited to be part of the June WCGHS website since my birthday falls in June. Wishing all the WCGHS dogs and cats many, many happy birthdays to come.
