Arrival Story:
Snowflake showed up on our doorstep one day, hungry and begging for food. She was very friendly - loved being around people and being petted and handled - so we figured she was probably an abandoned pet. It broke our hearts that someone could do such a thing to this sweet little kitty. One of our family members is highly allergic to cats so we didn't consider adopting her at first, but we couldn't just let her starve to death, so we started to feed her whatever leftover meat we could find in our fridge. However, it wasn't enough. We would see her begging for food from whoever would pay attention around our condo complex,and even though we were feeding her whenever we could she clearly needed more care than just being left an occasional meal. We decided to adopt her as a pet. At first, due to the cat allergy issues, we thought we would keep Snowflake as an outdoor kitty. We invested in a fancy feeder that was controlled by an RFID tag on her collar so the other neighborhood strays wouldn't get to her food. After we fattened her up a bit (she was literally skin and bones when we made the decision to adopt her) we took her to the vet to get spayed. That's when things changed significantly for all of us. The vet instructed us to keep her indoors full time for at least 5 days after the surgery. We weren't prepared for that, but we dealt with it by hastily buying a litter box and containing her in a spare bathroom. Much to our surprise, while we were out one day she somehow managed to get out of the bathroom and had run of the house, and she behaved herself very nicely. She had no problems using the litter box and even quickly learned to stay off of the upholstered furniture (all it took was a few firm NO's and we were good to go). She exhibited such a sweet personality and seemed so happy to be "off the street" that we decided to make her into a full-time house kitty.
