Arrival Story:
We went to the SPCA to adopt a cat. My son (then 10) had made up stories about cats including a black cat with a white tail tip. He really wanted a cat with a white tail tip and I told him they were uncommon. Imagine our surprise when there in the cage was an (adult) gray tuxedo cat with...a white tail tip! She meowed at us through the bars--we're always a sucker for that--then they got her out for us and she was tentatively friendly and cuddly. So of course we had to get her!

She was hard to name. Our earlier cats had literary names but nothing seemed to fit. We tried foreign words that would indicate her tailtip markings but finally settled on "Spark," and indeed her tailtip seems to glow like a spark--in dim light at night, sometimes it's all you can see of her, bobbing along a couple of feet from the ground! She has beautiful green eyes that don't always show up well in photos. She had been front declawed by a previous owner which in our experience adds to the cat's paranoia about and dislike for other cats. I hope over time she is mellower around them. She does get her quality time with the humans though!
