Arrival Story:
I went to our local no-kill shelter looking for kittens. Shade (shelter name: Georgio) was the last of his litter; the others had been adopted. The shelter volunteer suggested Shade because of the gentle and friendly nature of the whole litter. One of the adoptive families had come back after adopting one to get another because of their great personality. I had never had a "plain gray-striped tabby" so on her advice I adopted Shade.

I named him Shade after the hero cat, Shade McCorkle. Shade resisted going to the nursing home. I finally realized that Shade doesn't like to be held or carried. Since I got the stroller he can stay inside where he feels more safe and the residents can reach in to pet him. He does like being petted and he's starting to come around and relax at the nursing home. He will lay on the resident's bed and will lay on his back for the residents to rub his belly. That's a big hit with the residents! At home, Shade is the "stable" one. Kind of like the "foundation" of our cat group. He was the first one here and he seems to be the "older brother", even though he is only a few weeks older than the other three.
