Arrival Story:
Sterling (shelter name: Vance), his brother and mother were brought in to the Benld Adopt-A-Pet animal shelter by an older couple who said the mother was a stray that gave birth under their porch. Sterling and his brother were only 2 days old. Six weeks later, I was looking at a white cat whose cage mate was Sterling's mom. The shelter volunteer said her two kittens were weaned and in the back room. Both were the color of their mom but one had short hair, the other had long, like the mom. So I asked to see the kittens. Being a softy for long-haired cats, when I held Sterling, he was sooooooo gentle and loving, I knew he was going home with me. Both Sterling's mom and brother were adopted after I adopted Sterling.

Sterling visits residents in our local nursing home. He rotates with Sundance, Shannara and Shade, going once a week, along with my Collie, Amber. He does well, sitting on the resident's lap or on their bed. He has his little harness and leash on and is in his stroller while we walk down the halls. Most of the residents like cats as much as dogs, so we all are a welcoming presence at the nursing home. At home, Sterling is the smartest of my four. He can climb the highest, run the fastest and is the first to explore new situations. He is the most gentle with the softest "meow" and is the smallest. His color is a smoky black with silver highlights but technically his color is considered "blue".
