My 17 YO Calico Squeaky had just passed on. Friends had a neighbor whose cat had just had kittens. I was about to move to a new apartment and wasn't able to go "pick one out" for a few months. My friends told me there was just one kitten left if I wanted her.
Within a week, I picked her up and took her home.
I didn't realize until a few days after she came to live with me that a small kitten statue given to me by other friends several years before looked almost exactly like Sandi!
I've had people who were ambivalent about cats tell me how much they like Sandi. She's probably the best animal companion I've ever had. She's very good in the car, excellent with people of all kinds, appropriately wary of strangers when I'm not around, and better behaved in public than any cat I've ever known.
More pics of her here for anyone that wants to see:

Sandi (short for Sandiego) left me just over a week ago.
Catster will be closing down these profiles shortly, but I'd like to share some of my favorite stories about my little girl and best friend.
When Sandi came home with me at the tender age of three months, it was a weeknight and I had to go to work the next day. I would have rather stayed home to get her used to things, but I couldn't take the time off. The job was close to home though, so I came back to spend my lunch break with her.
I got home and called out to my as-yet unnamed kitten, but couldn't find her anywhere. I checked under the furniture, in the bathroom, and every nook and cranny I could find - no joy.
Then out of the corner of my eye, in the bedroom, I spotted a movement.
There she was, in the middle of the stuffed animals on my bed staring at me as though I was a complete idiot.....
