In fact, Ginger is a bit of a scaredy-cat when it comes to almost every aspect of life. She doesn’t like it when her mommy moves things around the house, and socks freak her out. Because of her anxiety issues, the predator lifestyle isn’t for her.
That suited Simpson just fine, and it was the kind of company she needed. She said, “I was very sick for a very long time. You know, people exhausted me. [Ginger] likes to cuddle, and so cats are good healing companions.”
That’s also why it both surprised and worried Simpson when Ginger began stalking wild animals. Simpson lives in Homer, Alaska, and regularly gets moose visiting her property. Ginger took a great interest in their comings and goings and paid special attention to the moose calves.
