Arrival Story:
A tiny handful of stray kitten turned up on my doorstep, just two big yellow eyes and a scrap of ragged black fur. She was hungry and very weak but too timid to let me touch her. She finally came to the door to talk to my roommate's cat, and I was able to get her into a box with warm blankies and some food and water. After a trip to the vet to be sure she was okay, she was given the name Jill because it was little and cute, just like her. It took her a long time to become a pet as she really only bonded with the other cat at first, but when she & I moved into our own place she quickly became my dearest friend, and we have been through a lot together. When I started dating my husband she always hid from him at first, but she grew to adore him and now she's as much Daddy's girl as Mama's. Jill was so weak when I found her that we weren't sure she would survive, and when she was about three months old she had a viral infection that nearly took her away again. Recently she survived a life-threatening digestive disorder, but she still has six lives intact and she is happy and much loved.

Jill and her sister Rainy have flown in an airplane twice in cross-country moves and the other passengers were startled to hear meowing from under the seats at takeoff and landing! They are international kitties; they are American, but they now reside in Canada. So far, though, they haven't learned to meow in French.
