Arrival Story: I didn't used to like cats til I got her on the 4th of november 1998. I instantly fell in love. She was 11 when she came to me. I was taking care of a friend at the time. She had problems I was trying to help her with. I rejected at first her pleas to bring Mira in. She was at the home of a friend. This friend was going to Hawaii for the winter. There was no other place for her to go. I finally relented. I'm glad I did. Mira had been a show cat in her very early years. Then she was retired to being a breeder. Then my ex got her. My ex had some nasty people in her life. Mira went through hell. One of the things that happened to her was somebody close to my ex pulled most of her teeth. I don't know why. I guess just to be a cruel ass. Even though I didn't like cats, I'd never had done anything like that. After I kicked my ex out, she wanted Mira back. I had no intention of releasing her back into that life so I said Mira had run off and hadn't returned. The only lie I told her but I don't regret it. Mira spent six happy years with me. She was blind and mostly deaf when I shipped her over to Scotland. It was either that or have her put down because nobody wanted a blind, deaf 16 year-old cat. I couldn't put her down for no reason. She survived the trip from Houston to Edinburgh via Frankfurt Germany then six months quarantine fine. Her kidneys started going out toward the end of summer 2004. We finally had to put her down on november 22 2004. She was the light of my life and I'll never forget her.
Bio: She was born in Denver and lived in Cheyenne, Wyoming; Evanston, Wyoming; Houston, Texas and Grangemouth, Scotland where she rests in peace.
