Arrival Story:
When I went to the pound, I was determined to get a fat cat to name Wilbur after the pig in Charlotte's Web. A couple was playing with Ping, and I asked if they were going to take him, and they said probably not. I played with him a little and he was very sweet, but I had to play the good consumer and check out all my options. I put him down on the counter, and as I walked by to where the other cats were, he bound down the counter and took a flying leap, catching my shirt with all four paws! I decided that he had picked me. He was too little to get his shots yet (he was from the street with no momma), so I had to bargain with the pound to let me take him by promising to take him to the vet within a couple weeks to get the shots.

Ping can be more than a little aggressive and territorial which is pretty normal for cats. One time a couple of friends had their big dogs (an English Setter and a Rottweiler) over, and we left the three of them at home alone together. When we returned, Ping had both dogs in a corner whimpering!
