Arrival Story:
Paisley came to us wild, feral, dirty and very pregnant. She disappeared for a winter and re-appeared in the spring - wild, feral, dirty and pregnant, and very conflicted about her dealings with people. In the fall of 2004 she had a litter of kittens and on October 23, 2004 she brought all 5 of her kittens into our utility shed. I moved her and three of the kittens into our basement room that afternoon. About three hours later we were hit by a magnitude 7 (or so) earthquake, the Great Niigata Chuetsu Earthquake. Around 3:00 a.m. that night, under spectacularly clear skies (as all the power for miles had been knocked out) I caught and brought the other two kittens inside. The kittens found owners but Paisley stayed with us; many would not find her a good pet. She has a grossly deformed front foot, we think the result of mistreatment before she came to us, and she is still quick to scratch after she has been petted. For years I had scratches all over both hands but she has quieted down recently and is getting used to people.

Bio:
Recently she has started to chase toys but she tends to kill them off quickly, i.e., her toys don't last long. She is a real tiger, is Paisley.

What do you mean, "they" cut the power?
