Arrival Story:
We had adopted his sister Primrose the month before, and planned on her being our only cat. (See her page for the story leading up to her arrival in our lives). When we picked her up, we saw him running around like a nut chasing a ball, and thought "wow, we definitely couldn't handle that much energy." During the time we had Primrose alone, I had a dream that we adopted him, and started wondering how it would be to have two. Surely it would make her less lonely while we were at work... Also it might keep her out of trouble. A week or so later I noticed that he was still available on PetFinder. This surprised me, as they had been kittens and I know kittens go fairly quickly vs older cats. On the Saturday, when I got out of work, I went by the pet store where they bring the cats to visit him. He was laying all alone in his cage, sleeping. When he did look at me, he looked sad. I took a picture and sent it to Anthony who said we'd have a lot to think about. Could we afford it? Is there room in the house? How will Primrose feel about it? We arranged to go meet him, "we'll just check him out, then talk about it after" we agreed. The hour that we were at his foster home, he mostly lay near us. He knew we were there to see him, but he didn't run around either. He purred whenever we held him. Finally it was decided. He would come home. It's been less than a day, and he and his sister seem to be getting a long less well than expected, but time will tell.

Peeta was part of a litter of 4 born outside in April. He and his siblings were named after the characters in The Hunger Games. He has a sister named Katniss (a calico/tiger), and a sister named Primrose (tuxedo like her, with a white spot on his lip), and one other sibling. The 3rd sibling was adopted by the family who found the litter.
