Arrival Story:
I had always wanted an orange male cat. I loved the look of them and I'd heard that they were very affectionate. One day I dropped into my vet's office to pick up some cat food for a neighbour and there was a little orange and white kitten up for adoption in the front lobby cage. He and some littermates had been abandoned in a barn and brought in to the vet's. He was sooo cute! When I picked him up he was full of beans and purred like a motorboat. As one of my older cats were in the last stages of kidney failure, and wouldn't be with us much longer I decided to take this little guy home - and the cat food. I had been to Africa a few months before and I thought of the name Kenya for him. He came home and my older cat took to him and was quite playful with him. I think that she perked up a little when Kenny came to live with us and that he perhaps prolonged her life a little more.

Kenya was put to sleep on Sunday April 20/09. He showed all the signs of a possible brain tumour and after a few seizures was blind in one eye and unable to recognize where he was or anyone whom he loved. It was a very difficult decision as it all happened very suddenly, but he was suffering and it was the kindest thing to do. Kenya, sadly had no grace - he was a klutz. He couldn't jump on anything without wiping out everything else that's there or sliding across the surface and going off the other side. He was my boy though, he bonded with me early on and he was my big suck. He enjoyed snuggling with all of the other boys, but was happiest sleeping in my arms or on my head at night.
