Arrival Story:
Poppy and her sister were found in a dumpster where some heartless person left them to die. A good samaritan rescued both kittens and took them to a local no-kill shelter where they were put into foster care. They were only about 2 weeks old when found. The foster "mom" happened to be my dau-in-law. Poppy was almost 6 weeks old by the time I first saw her, but it was clear from that moment that she was going to join our family. She went home with us that same day. Her sister wasn't so fortunate, succumbing to chronic poor health and general failure-to-thrive about 3 weeks later in spite of my dau-in-law's excellent care and veterinary intervention. That was August of 2007. Poppy is now 4 years old, and has grown into quite the pretty kitty. She still loves to play, but also loves to toast herself in the sun coming thru our patio slider. She's very social and unafraid.
