Arrival Story:
I wanted a companion for Paloma so a month or so after I got her, I went back to the shelter to see if her sister was still available. She had already been adopted so I looked around and saw him, held him and fell in love with him. I was just about to leave (already in the car) when I decided to go back for him. Someone else who just walked in also wanted him and was holding him when I returned, when they saw how sad I was that he was taken they decided to let me have him and they picked out another cat.

He lost one of his nine lives when he was around 1 year old. He walked into my bedroom one Saturday morning with half of a sewing kit ( like you get at hotels) hanging out of his mouth. He had swollowed most of the thread, but some was still hanging out of his mouth attached to the cardboard, but my biggest worry was that I couldn't find the needle! I rushed him to the nearest vet and they had to put him under anesthesia to get the thread out and to x-ray him for the needle. Luckily he hadn't swollowed the needle and MY foot found it later that day in the carpet!
