Adopted by Joe & Lynn Ulreich. Velcro got her name because if someone tried to pick her up, the claws came out and she tried to stay put, just like velcro. Over 48 years of marriage and living all over the U.S., Lynne and I have always had pets around the house, but none of them matched up to Velcro. Velcro proved to be the best house trained and the most happy, loving and precious pet we had ever had.
