I went to C.A.R.E. looking for a cat. I didn't find one the first time I went but the second time around I found Katie Cat (Maya). My first cat had died and at first I didn't want another cat, but I changed my tune after I met KC (as I call her for short). I met several cats in the cat area but I didn't connect with any until Katie introduced herself to me in her cool cat way. I came back the next day and took her home. I agreed to a trial adoption since I have a parakeet (now two of them) to make sure they got along. After a couple of weeks I officially adopted her and she had been with me for four years now.
