Arrival Story:
We got Dusty in the spring of 1988. We were living in southern Ohio, and my sister and I (she was about 6, I was about 9) found Dusty around our yard, and noticed that she seemed hurt. We knew that she belonged at this rather scary, beat-up house nearby, and we took her back there (feeling bad about it, but knowing that it was their cat), but the owners said that she scratched their baby, and that they didn't want her anymore, that we could just "throw her in a lake" or something. Seriously, that's what they said! They told two little girls, who love cats, that they should throw this cat into a lake and kill her. :( :( :( Of course mom & dad let us keep Dusty after that, she she later made the move with us to northern Ohio (getting far away from her hateful former owners, thankfully). She has a small pellet from a bb gun lodged under her skin still to this day, and it seems that she was abused a lot. But, she has been a happy kitty with us, and continues to live with my parents in Ohio.
