Hello folks in the warm wet South! I know it's already April, but I made a special request that before summertime, my new adopting family will have found me through the numerous profiles of other kitties, and I will be able to go home with them and play with them throughout the summer. I'm really hoping my wish comes true.

As you can see, I'm what's called a Cow-kitty. I'm about the same amount of white fur as black fur. Cow-kitties are known to be the best kitties in the whole wide world! Really! I'm sure of it. I was rescued from sure death at a local kill shelter along with 14 other kitties around Thanksgiving of last year. My Thanksgiving wish was honored and my life was saved. I was very worried until I was broken out of there and was handed over to my foster family.

I get along very well with other kitties. I taught my little foster brother how to be a good kitty and how to listen to our foster parents. And I stayed right beside my brother Curry, who was ill with a genetic condition and ended up dying recently. I hugged him and kept him warm and gave him comforting purrs and licks until he finally decided it was time to go. I am adaptive and resilient (I've not lived with doggies, but I don't freak out at the doggies that I see at adoption events). The trick with us kitties is understanding why we do what we do. Once you understand us, it's easy to figure us out.

So, my wish is that you will see me and fall in love. That you will PICK ME! And that you will love me and call me your own and protect me and play with me. I very much want to have a last name, just like you. And I hope YOU will give me that!!
