No, my son adopted her from a no kill shelter in Corpus Christi covered in ticks. He then brought her home to us in North Texas when she was 3 months for Thanksgiving break. He wanted me to 'train' her until his Christmas break then he would take her back. Needless to say, after bringing her to work with me everyday - I couldn't give her back. My son finally told us he had been hiding her because his landlord didn't allow pets.
