Speedy


When people say "where you born in a barn?" I say "yes, as a matter of fact I was". My name is Speedy. I was named by my original owner's son who got me from the lady who's barn I was born in. I was with them for 8 months and had never seen a vet, they couldn't afford it. They were also having trouble paying rent and buying food so they were going to move in with the man's sister and her husband, kids and dog...see where this is going. No room at the inn for a mancat. Dad said right away that I could come and live with him and mom and that the boy could then visit me. The first week I was with my forever mom and dad I went to the vet and got shot and had my hoohah ectomy. Then I set about making friends with the two lady cats who already lived there. Sadie was easy, Zippy didn't like her very much and she needed a friend to play with. Zippy was a little tougher, I had to pretend I was afraid of her! I'm the mancat of the family and keep the peace between my sisters. I am also a Manny (male nanny) for every litter of baby kittens that mom fosters. I don't know if it's my charm or my non-threatening manner, but every one of those litters (and their moms) loved me. I'm happy in my new home and never want to leave, which is good, 'cuz mom doesn't want me to leave either. -Donna, the kattonic mom
