Arrival Story:
I've always had at least one tortoiseshell cat, since I was 5 years old. My tortie, Rain, disappeared one July morning. I'm pretty sure she was snagged by a coyote, which is why my cats are now indoors-only. Anyhow, I was scouring the lost ads and shelter websites every day looking for her, and one day a couple of weeks after Rain had vanished, I came across a picture of a cat in one of the local shelters who looked so much like Rain, I had to pull up a photo of Rain and start comparing markings, even though I knew it was very unlikely my missing cat, since it was a shelter 20 miles from my house. I went to the shelter to adopt the look-alike and discovered to my surprise that what the shelter website photo didn't show is that the cat had no tail! Our vet says it's a natural condition, not the result of an accident. She's the only tortoiseshell-Manx I've ever known! Her name obviously came about because she followed Rain.
