Arrival Story: The first memories I have are of an apartment near a lot of water (I heard someone say that we were in Long Island, NY but I don't know what that means). A human came one day (I was 8 weeks old at the time) and I sorta liked him. I decided to adopt him to do all my menial tasks, like prepare my food, clean my poop, etc. But the first thing this guy did was stick me into this little "carrier" - more like a cheap overnight bag. It took me all of 30 minutes to escape from it and start roaming around his car. He got mad. What's the big deal? Hey human, let me stuff YOU into a tiny blue suitcase and see how YOU like it!!!
I like my home. It has stairs and lots of stuff to climb on. I have my own personal bathroom. That is good because I like my privacy. My dad is nice to me. He buys me lots of toys and makes sure I have food and treats. I wish he was around more often to play with but he says he has to go to someplace called "work". I don't know what that is but it doesn't sound like too much fun. My dad and I are now bestest buddies and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else.
Bio: Aedan is from a litter of 5 kitties; all of them buff or orange in color. I will try to post more pics of Aedan but he NEVER STANDS STILL so it is hard to snap anything but an orange blur.

My Auntie Jeannie went to the Bridge last week. She had something called "cancer". I don't know what that is but it sounds very scary. My dad's eyes are leaking a lot since we found out. I try my best to console him but it's hard when my eyes are leaking too. Please purr for my Grandpa. Less than a year ago my Grandma went to the Bridge and now one of his daughters is gone too. It's been very tough on him.
Today is my 10th Gotcha Day! Dad says it's one of the best decisions he's ever made. I agree. Dad and I are more than roommates or cat and human. We are companions, bestest buddies, soul-mates. Not a day passes that we don't make each other laugh. I could not ask for a better human. Here's looking at another 10 years, dad. I love you, big guy!
