Bitu kindly invited me to join the group - so I did. (I'm VERY shy & am trying to get out more on Catster.)
Here is my story which you can also see on my page.
(PS - Thank you, Bitu, for the invite!)
Hi, I'm Sasha Carter & this is my story. MomKatt got a call one day from the Caswell Co. Shelter in Yanceyville, NC, saying there was a Siamese kitten there that was an "owner give-up" and could she take a look & see if it would be a good fit for Siamese Rescue?
I was in bad shape - the lady that gave me up said she'd paid a lot of money for me but now my eye was bad and she demanded that the shelter staff put me to sleep right then and there - while she watched! Fortunately, the shelter people were much more compassionate than she was. They got rid of my stupid ex-owner as quickly as possible and then went about seeing what they could do for me. Turned out my eye was so gummy and nasty because I had herpes! Who knew!? I was just a tiny kitten - dirty, unloved, uncared-for and now ... herpes! What had I done, in my VERY short life, to deserve this?
Anyway, MomKatt came out with her digital camera, took pictures and told me not to worry, that I was going to see a vet before I got into the Rescue program so we could get my eye cleared up. A few days later, I went to the vet & got medicine for my eye.
When we returned to MomKatt's house, Dad came out of the house, looked at me in the carrier (all small and bunched up - I was scared and I felt terrible) and fell in love. I didn't know all this at the time - at that point, all I knew was that I was going to go to a foster home near the shelter with a lady who was going to administer my eyedrops and get me well while I waited to be placed in Siamese Rescue. Compared to what I'd experienced before that, it sounded like Heaven to me. (DadKatt named me after a Russian Blue kitty he'd had when he was younger.)
I was very lucky and I've been very happy at home ever since but they laugh & call me "Ghost Kitty" because I'm VERY VERY shy and only really come out to Mom&DadKatt. If there are strangers in the house, if I come out from under the bed at ALL, it takes a VERY long time for me to do so.
I hope to make lots of furrends here - please Pmail me. All mail & new furrends are welcome!
