Ariel, a tabby cat from Clarksville, arrived in Mt. Juliet four years ago shortly after roaming in the streets, homeless. Sweet and gentle, she immediately learned how to adapt to her new environment and befriended her new furry relatives. Less than a year later, she gave birth to her first and only liter of kittens. One of them passed away and the second born kitten named Iceman survived. Ariel is a motherly cat because she loved her newborn baby who happened to perish way too soon and the last reason she is motherly is because she spends plenty of time with Iceman as far as chasing each other in the yard and climb trees to get away from Daisy, a hunting dog.
