Arrival Story:
We lost our cat Willa to Feline Anemia July 2nd 2004, weeks later we just had to have another cat (for us and Jackson...the dog was very depressed about Willa). So we went to the shelter to look for a new kitty and we found Zoe (called Tiny @ the shelter). She was literally fur and bones, she had the skinniest neck we had ever seen....she was only 2 1/4 lbs. the day we found her at the shelter. We think the larger kitten in the cage with her was eating all the food. When she came home, she ate ravenously for days and we let her! The shelter was confused as to how old she was when we adopted her (b/c she is so small), but later the vet assured us that she was about 16 weeks old b/c she already had her adult teeth. We applied for adoption and had to wait for her to get spayed and in the meantime, the shelter scanned her for a microchip and found one...which meant she had previous owners. We were upset at first, but it ended up that she ran away from them almost immediately (?!?!?) and they got another cat and did not want her...thankfully, she was our new kitten-cat! After about a week of runaround and delays with the shelter and the vet, we finally brought her home. I had a special room set up for her in the house (close to where we hang out during the day) so that she could rest and have a safe haven from Jackson. It lasted a couple minutes, she immediately showed no fear of Jackson and was ready to investigate her new house. She has been giving us so much love...she knows we saved her from a life (possibly death) at the shelter and she has been showing us that she loves us everyday! Even Jackson....she gives him lots of nose kisses and love pats >^..^< Jackson has been very sweet and gentle with her...he loves his new little sister!

Bio:
NEW language discovered!> She speaks to one of her toys in yet another language. We think she thinks of this toy as an imaginary cat friend...it's one of those fishing rod toys with a long tail attached to it...looks very much like a real cat tail, but very long...5-6 feet long! She carries it around the house with her and hides it in corners. If we listen very closely while she is playing with it she makes these cute little chirping/barking noises. She will also fetch this same toy for us...it is so funny to see her carrying around this long toy. LAST language discovered> She has a special language that she speaks to Jackson mostly and to us when she is being loving and sweet....she LOVES it if we mimic the sound; she comes running to give us kisses and love when we do it back to her. She lets me know when Jackson is ready to come in from outside by talking in that special language, jumping into my lap then running to the door to show me that he is waiting to come in....or just standing by the door and doing the sounds louder and louder until I look over. She is very smart and sweet. We have taken her for walks on a leash and she does great! She has just learned to fetch (maybe from watching Jackson because it was almost too easy to teach her), she will do spins on command when we are about to give her wet food (she'll spin in a circle everytime we say "Spins") She is extremely smart for her young age...I think she is absorbing education from the books that she likes to take naps on. She sleeps on top of the books in the bookshelf by the computer or hides behind the books inside of the bookshelves. Zoe has the cutest little black paws...black only on the bottom of all 4 paws and everyone loves the spots on her belly. She "kneads bread" with her paws all the time....not like a typical cat who does it mostly when they are preparing their bed...she just stands there in front of us and looks up and stretches her paws and dances and kneads bread...it is just too cute...it's one of the first things we noticed about her. She is still very small, but has fattened up since we brought her home...she just looks like a healthy, growing kitten now. She will always be a tiny little girl...the photos make her look much bigger than she is...she is very small! We LOVE our little Zo-ster!
