Arrival Story:
Many years ago, I was the local Ferret Rescue. Impounded ferrets were always kept in the cat room, and it always broke my heart to see all the cats there. =^..^= After I lost Mong, I was always on the lookout for another siamese. One day, a the cat room contained a litter of just-impounded siamese kittens, all sable points save one. He looked so much like Mong, I remember saying something, jokingly, to the effect of, "If you guys don't let me adopt this cat, I'm never coming here for a ferret again!" That night I took Nick home. He was about seven or eight weeks old.

Dear Nick, he was completely at home as soon as we brought him into the house. He quickly took to Rosalyn, my Great Pyrenees (rescued a year previously) as a surrogate mother, and was hardly ever away from her. =^..^= Nick grew into a huge, handsome cat, but as he aged we noticed that he seemed to tire easily. A trip to the vet revealed he had a hole between two chambers of his heart. The vet didn't think surgery to close it was possible. Nick died suddenly in his sleep of this time-bomb he carried inside him, but his short life of only about five years was a merry one. Nick welcomed dogs, other cats, hearly one hundred ferrets, and some new horses, all with equal aplomb.
