Kandinsky was dumped as a kitten-cat at the Glasgow Cat and Dog Home in 2000. We took her home. At first she growled a lot. She farted and walked like a cowboy. Before too long I found she had given birth in my wardrobe. Too young to be a mum Kandi hid all the kittens from us so we couldn't keep them warm enough. She had been booked in for sterilisation - but it turns out it was a bit late! Since then she has been a very happy cat - and easily the noisiest cat I have ever met. She loves to make her opinions known, which is sensible I think. She is very affectionate and ADORES attention - the more strokes the better. She is also a fantastic judge of character. She can sniff out a cat hater miles off and deliberately heads straight for them to try to prove that cats are loveable. Unfortunately this rarely has the desired result! About a year ago Kandi became ill (skin irritation etc). She was given steroid treatment and it calmed down. This summer she became ill again - we assumed it was the same condition until a lump appeared on her face. We took her to the vets who diagnosed lymphoma. I am proud of my cat - she's still not making any fuss despite the illness and has put up with all the prodding from the V..E..T..s without ever scratching or fighting back. Kandi is no longer sick as she passed to the Rainbow Bridge on Dec. 28, 2006. -Ceri H.
