Arrival Story:
the son of a friend of my mother (say that five times fast!) had a litter of kittens, they saved the last kitten for me for another month. ("We were wondering who was going to take the grey monster.") My first glance of her was as a grey blur darting around to escape being picked up. I picked her up at the very end of July 1994, the day I moved in to my first 'alone' apartment. We spent our first night together in my new apartment. She spent the night meowing and wouldn't let me touch her. In the morning she finally let me touch her and then was immediately purr purr purr...

I named her Athena (the goddess of war) because she immediately declared war on my house. Destroyed or played with EVERYTHING! When Christmas came around, she climbed the tree so often and pulled it down so many times I couldn't screw the base into the tree holder. I had to drag it out to the street the day I bought it!!!!!!!! March 10, 2004 - Creature tried for three hours to wake me. He always pulls over my lamp, but this time he knocked over my alarm clock (it's heavy) and was very persistent. He raced me to the bathroom and stood next to her GLARING at me. I rushed her to the vet and she was declared dead. The vet gave the approximate time of death as three hours before... she died of a heart attack. Creature lost 1/4 of his body weight in grief. She now rests in our living room watching over us.

It may seem not so many pictures were taken of me compared to the other kitties, but there are TONS! It's just that digital pics weren't all that popular back when I was around, so mama needs to scan the photos of me before she can post them. As soon as more are available, she'll put them up!
