Tina Kramer is pictured with her three indoor pets. The dogs, left to right, are Shorty, a 6 to 7-year-old cocker spaniel/dachshund mix, and Ohlee, a 15-month-old cockapoo. Her 11-year-old cat Shelby is pictured on her shoulder. Kramer got Shelby as a 1-day-old kitten and had to feed her from a bottle. Shelby has earned a reputation as a difficult cat, but Kramer’s natural way with animals has changed Shelby to the point that she sleeps on Kramer’s shoulder at night. — The Holyoke Enterprise | Johnson Publications
