Arrival Story:
After the loss of Oliver (RIP), we decided to go to the local animal shelter and rescue a kitty in need. We had our eye on a beautiful adult calico we saw on Petfinder, but Casper just stole our hearts. He would meow at the top of his lungs if we went to look at another cat, so we brought him home. He is now a very happy house cat, who gets too much attention for his own good. :D

We brought Casper to the vet for the first time the day after we adopted him. I was sitting in the chair with Casper on my lap while the vet was weighing Bella when the vet said, "You know there it a name for that breed of cat? He is a Van cat." I looked at some pics, but Casper only has a little patch of gray near the base of his tail, about an inch long. I can't really find anything stating how much color he needs on his tail to qualify. Either way we love him, and now we (probably) ended up with two pure breed rescue cats without meaning to, not that I mind any. Also, when we took him in to be neutered at 5 months, one of the vet techs there asked us why we weren't going to breed him. Because, I said, we rescue cats, not add to the huge population of unwanted cats. Plus, we don't even know his history or even if he is part van cat. He probably just has the markings of one. Goodness, your pet barely resembles a pure breed, and everyone wants their offspring.
