Arrival Story:
He's my husband's cat, but now mine as well. He used up life #1 as a kitten -- his mom had him between slabs of drywall in a house under renovation. The renovators thought there were mice in the walls and called in an exterminator -- turned out to be kittens, so tiny they had yet to open their eyes. My husband being a sucker for a hard luck story, took Bob in. He was bottle fed and never knew his mom, which is why we assume he has no idea that he's a cat, and why he loves people so.

Bob used up what we consider to be an additional 5 lives after he took a dive out an open window, accidentally left that way by a house guest. 8 months later, after many surgeries, and an amount of money we never imagined spending on ANYTHING, Bob is doing fine. He has metal plates and some bone of other cats in one of his legs, and walks with a limp, but other than that, he's back to his old self.
