Arrival Story: I wanted a brown tabby when I graduated from college. I am pretty connected with a few rescue groups in the area, so I told them to keep an ear out for any kittens that were DSH, male, brown tabby. I had a perfect one waiting for me, but the rescue decided to keep him instead. She didn't tell me this for a few weeks, though so all the time I just sat there wondering what was going on. Then another one came in. I wasn't told much about him, just that he and his littermate were left to fend for themselves when their mom was hit by a car. I was told to meet the foster mom at the pet store and I could take him home that day. Cool!
Well, I got to the pet store and I opened the carrier. Two little white feet popped out. Um, that's not what I wanted! I wanted an all brown tabby, not a brown and white one... ok well, let's see what he looks like.Um, he's all fuzzy! I wanted a shorthaired one! He's also a little older than I wanted, he smells bad, and he won't stop crying!
I walked around the store with him for about 10 minutes. I told my friend that this was not at all what I was hoping for and that I really would like a short haired cat at the very least. But, I ended up feeling bad for him and the foster parents, so I took him home to give it a try.
I absolutely love this cat!!! He is the most perfect cat in the world for me. While it may not have been love at first sight exactly, Ever since I got him, I could not have asked for a more awesome critter. He loves me and we have a great connection. Whenever I go on trips, he is always the first one to greet me and he misses me more than my dogs do. He talks a lot, and is really a bit of a trouble maker, but I wouldn't have him any other way.
Bio: Echo's a very intelligent and talkative kitty. I dabbled in clicker training with him and he learned a few tricks. He learned them faster than my shepherd that I tried to clicker train! I grew a little bored with the training though, so we stopped.

Watch for the next exciting installment of the Zealie lotto drawing tomorrow morning! I, along with my new sidekick, Zephyr, get to choose this time around.
If you can't stand the suspense of waiting to know, well, I have a video on my page of one of the 'loser' times, where the new kitten and I are going at it, MOL! That should keep you busy for a little bit anyway.
