Arrival Story:
My ex and I went to a pet store to get crickets for my gecko, Rama, in November 2003 and there were 2 kittens that had been found on the streets in a cage. I held one (Pyro) while another couple looked at Tweak (Pyro's brother). They said they'd take him if we took Pyro. They were both obviously sick and Pyro sneezed right on me. With that sneeze, I fell in love. I told the couple we couldn't take Pyro, then waited until they left and said we'd take both of them. They'd been together without their mom for who knows how long, there was no way I was going to separate them. We took them home that evening, got them well, and they've been loved ever since.

The first night we took the boys home, we had a fire in the fireplace (with the gate closed) and a candle on the mantle. Pyro got his name by figuring a way into the fireplace and sitting on a log that was beginning to burn at both ends. I, of course, freaked and grabbed him from the fireplace. He promptly jumped up onto the mantle and stuck his face into the flame on the candle, singeing off his whiskers. Never again was there allowed to be anything with a flame around Pyro. Pyro's aunt, my sister, started calling him "P-Man" when she lived here for awhile and has called him that ever since. His grandma, my mom, started calling him "Pyro-ee" since Tweak had "Tweakie" as a nickname.
