Kizzer loves to be held and will beg until I pick him up to cuddle him.
He hates getting stuck in the unheated side room that we use for storage, yet he still insists on running out there whenever he gets a chance. Go figure.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Kizzer loves to sleep on our bed.
Kismet has the ability to squeeze into the smallest sleeping area just so he can sleep right next to my face each night.
We found Kismet completely by accident on the hottest day in July. For some reason my husband decided to come home from Morris, Illinois on a completely different road than normal. It was then that we spotted the local animal shelter. I had been wanting to volunteer at the shelter, but didn't know where it was. We stopped in and I asked how I could help at the shelter. After getting a tour, I knew that the cat room was the room for me. The dogs were way to noisy. As we were leaving we noticed a cat carrier outside of the business closest to the road. When I got out of the car and checked out the carrier, all I saw was a dead, orange tabby kitten. But, as I walked away, I heard a meow. When I bent over to check, I saw 4 black legs it the back of the carrier. I immediately picked up the carrier and ran bck to the shelter. The smell of the decomposing kitten was aweful and I open the door to let the live cat out. He was covered with everything that was gross in the carrier and I told the other volunteers that I'd wash the cat so they didn't hav to smell like decomposition all day. It took a while but eventually this black cat was clean and no longer had the strong smell of death on him. We told the shelter workers that if he tested healthy, we'd adopt him. He did and we did.
Kismet is named so because the word Kismet means Fate and/or destiny in Turkish. It was fate that led us to take a different way home that day. Fate that made us stop at the shelter, and fate that led us to notice the small carrier as we left. Kismet was the only name we could name him. It was our destiny to add him to our family.
