Arrival Story:
A friend who fostered cats for a rescue foundation emailed a picture of this lovely cat around in hopes of finding her a home. She was gorgeous but it was bad timing for me. Months later, however, I was finally in a position to bring home a cat. As luck would have it, this cat was back in foster care after an unsuccessful attempt to find her a new home. In a house with several kids, she wound up living under the couch so the rescue foundation took her back. Obviously, it was fate! I agreed to adopt her without ever meeting her. Of course, she went under my couch immediately upon arrival. Within days, however, she gave up the couch cave for warm beds, sun spots, treats, petting, playing with toys, and getting into mischief.

Lives spent calculation: (1) Initial rescue from whatever situation in 1999. (2) Liver failure in 2003 (but she rebounded wonderfully). (3) Escaped new apartment March 05 and was luckily located before running into any new canine neighbors in the hallways.

Lives Remaining:
6 of 9
