Arrival Story: I found poker while visiting my aunt in Colorado. It was really cold and we were helping my niece find a dress for prom. We almost didn't make it to the last store but I'm glad we did because we wouldn't have found Poker if we had given up. Poker was in the parking lot of the prom dress shop under our car. This little kitten was trying to get out of the snow and stay warm under hot cars. We first named him Peaches because of the store name, but we found out he was a he and decided Peaches was too feminine. When we got home the guys were still playing poker, so that seemed like a good fit.
Now he is the official "Office Cat" for the web design company that I work for in Colorado. I'm a copy-writer there and was not allowed to have pets at my apartment. It was supposed to be temporary, but Poker grew on everyone and has just stayed there ever since.
