that's a beautiful story!katlover13 said:It seems like the very best kitties come with and interesting story. Even my very first cat had a story. He was part of a litter of cats at a horse barn at the fairgrounds and the man who owned the barn was going to drown the litter because there were too many cats. (This was in the 50's and I don't think as many people paid attention to animal cruelty back then.) A little neighbor girl begged him not to drown them and she promised she would find them homes. She went up and down our street with the kittens and found homes for all of them. My parents took one, Chessie, and he lived to be a grand old gentleman of 23. Growing up with Chessie gave me the love and respect for cats that I have now.
