I've never had a pet in my whole life (I'm 36 yo) and I've been waiting to have a dog as I've never been a cat person. I'm not home enough to give a dog the attention it deserves.
The orange tabby you see in the pictures is just one of the most wonderful cats. She's like a little Yoda and the first cat I've ever really liked. She's my housemate's cat but we've become good friends.
Being around her made me realize that I would probably enjoy having a cat if it had a mellow and sweet personality like her.
One day I was running some errands and a radio ad from the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter came on advertising their "kitten sale".
I happened to be just a block away with a little free time on my hands so I stopped in.
The moment I saw Wishie, I knew she was the kitty for me. They brought her into the little room for us to meet one another and she was just the most docile and affectionate little kitten I'd ever come in contact with.
Poor little thing was only 3 months old and they had found her on the streets just the week before with little scratches on her face. In just the 10 days that they'd held her at the shelter, she'd been spayed, smart-chipped, and vaccinated. She was incredibly frail and malnourished. And her fur was very dull. She looked like a wishie/dandelion and that immediately became her name.
Within 2 weeks of good food and grooming and affection, her coat began to shine and she grew and gained strength like a champ.
I feel so lucky to have found her!
She also introduced me to the Ragamuffin breed. I've completely in love with them. I bought a second one, from a breeder because I couldn't find any Ragamuffin kittens in a shelter nearby, and they've become the best of friends along with Sunset, the orange tabby.
