| Thanks for the invitation, Bitu! Hi everycat! I already know some of you, and it is great to meet those whom I don't!
My story is on my page and in my diary, but here is is again:
My mom adopted me in May of this year. We are both sure that my angel-sister Spike sent me to take care of Mom, because she met me at her very first volunteer shift back at the animal shelter after Spike went to the Bridge. I was brought to the shelter by a rescue group. I'm not sure how I got there; all I know is, I woke up with a headache. When Mom first saw me I was still in the quarantine room for new arrivals. I was skinny and sick, coughing and sneezing, with dull, rough, patchy fur, and stitches on my tummy from being spayed. But our eyes met across the room, and she came over to my cage, and I went right to the front of the cage to meet her ... I remember how kind and gentle she was as she held out her hand for me to sniff before she petted me ... I rubbed her fingers with my cheek and started to purr ... and she saw immediately that even though I had been through a rough time I was brave and smart and spirited and affectionate and would take good care of her. She whispered to me, right then and there, "Would you like to be my cat?"
Then, the day before I was scheduled to be available for adoption, the shelter people put me in the hospital instead! Mom had to wait six weeks for me while I was in the shelter hospital getting treated for, um, *whispers* ringworm .
But the hospital people took good care of me, and Mom was there to take me home on the very day I got out of the hospital -- I never spent a single day in the general shelter population!
Now, of course, my coat is so shiny that Mom says I look like I am made from patent leather, and I am the princess of my realm!
