Arrival Story:
A college friend got him from a neighbor; he was the last of a litter that had been born 6 months earlier. I came to her place where she was living with her mother, her sister, her cousin, and their dog to see the cat. __________________________________ _______ The humans in the family were constantly screaming at each other and their yappy dog was always freaking out. The poor kitty was terrified, he had crawled under a recliner and refused to come out. They didn't have a litter box for him or any food, the only nourishment they offered him was milk. I felt so bad for him! __________________________________ _______ I coaxed him out from under the chair and he crawled up into my coat and clung to me as if to say, 'Get me out of here! Take me home with you!' __________________________________ _______ My friend and her fiance were looking for an apartment of their own so I offered to take care of the cat until they found a place. She agreed. Soon after, the couple wound up moving to a place where they wouldn't be able to have pets. He promptly got a name change (they had called him 'Thumper.' Can you believe that?! A cat called 'Thumper!!), and then he was all mine. :-) __________________________________ _______ He lived with me for the next 15+ years. I never regretted not giving him back!

Bio:
Arthur was very clingy, he would sit on me 24/7 if I let him. He loved being hugged tightly. At night he'd crawl under the covers with me, 'knead' my stomach like a nursing kitten, then go to sleep with his nose buried in the crook of my elbow. If I'd roll over on top of him, he would just lay on my back or my legs so I couldn't roll over anymore. __________________________________ _______ Arthur left us after a courageous battle with IBD/Lymphoma. Through his ordeal, he never lost his loving, affectionate nature. Even as his condition deteriorated, his still took pleasure in our simply being together. __________________________________ _______ Arthur was the sweetest kitty I have ever known. Having him as my constant companion for over a decade and a half was truly a blessing. I'm grateful for the time we had together and for the love we shared that lives on.
