Arrival Story:
In September 2006, my Siamese, Jazz passed away from a stroke. I was inconsolable. So when Christmas rolled around, one of my best friends called and said I should expect to see Santa Claus on December 15. Sure enough, on Dec. 15, there was a knock at my door. But it wasn't Santa. It was a Manx breeder who drove 150 miles to deliver a ten-week old female Manx kitten with a huge red bow around her neck. I've never been so shocked in my life!!! I named her Calamity Jane after my favorite character on the HBO series "Deadwood." Can you believe such loving friends?

CJ was very, very ill the first year of her life, and I didn't think she was going to make it to her first birthday. I think many people would have euthanized her--she was that sick. Multiple vets diagnosed "Manx syndrome," a common genetic defect. But the last vet we tried gave her a $6 bottle of pink antibiotic--instant cure!! We consider Dr. Booth our guardian angel. She cured CJ--then disappeared!
