Brandy Schnitker of Fenton said her late cat, Gizmo, behaved more like a dog. This photo, taken in the spring of 2012, shows Gizmo allowing Schnitker’s daughter, Kylie, who was 4 at the time, to play with him. Kylie is now 11.
“They were good friends,” Schnitker said. “He would just lay there and let her put clothes on him. He would cuddle and sleep with our dog, Gordon. We still have Gordon.”
She said Gizmo died at age 15 in 2015, but is remembered fondly.
“He was the sweetest cat,” she said. “He loved everybody. He acted like a dog. He’d greet people at the door.”
