Arrival Story: We got a kitten from a neighbor that died as soon as we gave her the first vacinnation (all of the kittens from that litter died). My husband came home the next day and said that he had something for me. I opened the box to find this scrawny black kitten with a crooked tail. When I got her out of the box, she immediately purred and meowed and rubbed her face against my chin. She is such a sweet girl. She was abandoned in a parking lot at 2 weeks and adopted at 8 weeks.
Bio: Since she was separated from her mother so early, she still likes to nurse on a blanket when she's laying on my chest. If I stop petting her face, she gently puts her paw on my cheek until I pet her again.
