Arrival Story:
A friend ran a cat rescue, and when she had an outbrak of cat flu, she found herself swamped with caring for sick cats. She'd just had a tiny ginger rescue come in, who was found abandoned at a bus stop, way out in the countryside. The kitten was terribly sick, and needed around the clock care. As someone who had no cats, she asked if I and my family might care for the kitten until either he recovered, or the vet said he was beyond help (it was 50-50) and put him to sleep. We agreed, and spent several weeks caring for him, determined that he was going back to the sanctuary as soon as he was well. We didn't even give him a name, just called him 'kitten'. After six weeks, he was over his illness, and when she said she could now take him back, I found that I just couldn't part with him. By then, he'd become my cat, he followed me around like a puppy, and had even charmed our very anti-cat dog at the time. So, he ended up staying...for fourteen and a half years!

*hand on heart* There is no cat, no creature, I ever loved more in my life than my Jinx. He was the finest, sweetest, funniest, most loving soul I ever encountered. A huge, macho, ginger tom, with a heart of pure gold, and after six years without him, I miss him as much now as I did the day he died.
