Arrival Story: I brought a Turkish Angora mix kitten from another place; we gave away most of her kittens. One of those kittens ran away near where a woman my mother worked with had one like it appear, so we are pretty sure that is same cat. Magellan was from that cat's litter, so is related to beloved kitties. My mother got him for me when the coworker gave the kittens away.
Bio: Magellan had mismatched eyes and was deaf, but never seemed to know this. He was quite vocal and was almost always talking. He even left me messages on my answering machine with the memo function. How he knew about it I'll never know. The first time was obviously accident as he was walking around on it, but after that he very carefully talked into the mic as the messages were loud and clear.
He and the others (Amelia and Ahab) died from smoke inhalation during house fire. They were napping at the time, so I am grateful that they didn't suffer.
