Arrival Story:
I went to the shelter, looking for a kitten. Cuchulain was sitting up straight, alone in a cage. When I stopped to look at him, he just cocked his little head sideways and kept looking at me. I fell in love.

Cuchulain is named after an Irish mythic hero known for being brave to the point of foolhardiness. The name literally means "Hound of Culain," which fits because Cu is my DogCat. He also can find trouble wherever it may lurk, and he can make trouble where it does not lurk. From prying open screens and jumping out of windows, to eating shoelaces, to darting out of doors, to licking the plastic that will inflame his mouth whereever he can find it... he really is going through those lives. He seems to be settling down in his middle age, though (knock on wood). He was pink when he was a kitten, and is now a perfect cool Creamsicle color.
