Arrival Story:
We were determined to find a long-haired grey and white kitten to be a companion to Shamus and went to look at some kittens in a family barn. There was a female long-haired, grey and white kitten in the litter, a sister to Selkie, that I held but there was no connection. Selkie walked in, a fairly average little white kitten with red ears and tail and when I picked her up, I just knew she would be coming home with us. She wasn't what we were looking for but she found us and Shamus was immediately enchanted with her as well, no hissing or spitting at all. We believe it was the Selkie magic that ensnared us all.

Selkie's full name is Lacey Lady Jane Selkie Mactalla Golden Earth Girl. Mactalla is a Gaelic name for echo which we thought worked as she is Shamus' echo. Although technically Selkie was not "rescued", she was saved from a life like her mother, who had litter after litter of kittens and was too old to be a mother when Selkie was born. It was obvious that she didn't do much mothering because she was too old to have the energy or care and we think that's one of the reasons that Selkie is so dependent on us and so shy of other people. She does love her family and home even though she is not a sociable cat.
