Below are a couple of pictures for comparison.
This is the infamous "LA Outlaw" mug shot taken Sunday, 7/16.
KC had just been brought in and photographed when Karen C dropped by the shelter.
There was one health issue: her weight. It's hard to tell with all that lavish fur, but she is way too thin. She will have to visit the vet's office two times a week for a while. If she can't gain weight, she could be in serious trouble. I'm optimistic that voracious appetite will see her through.Everyone just fell madly in love with her [DUH!]. They all agreed she is a tortie!!?? I don't know much about cats, but Deb's torties don't look a thing like her. But it's just a name, who cares.
It's 5 a.m. in Houston. Bear got me up to walk her, then get her breakfast. Missy comes in to see what's going on. Enter KC. She had been hiding, but when she sees Missy, she RUNS to her.
Missy didn't notice until KC rubbed against her. Missy ran into another room. No hissing, just a curious, surprised look from Missy. It's not much, but it's a start. KC obviously NEEDS Missy -- she did not come out until she spotted Missy!!! We'll see what happens in the days to come. Also, KC discovered the Big Water Bowl. And she used the litter box during the night. No accidents yet (that I've found)!
The photos are small but magnificent. Without seeing a lot of detail, you can tell by the body language this is a Happy Kitten.
Karen C. and Deb literally had to fight for the release of little KC this morning. Needless to say, they got their cat.
KC's FLIGHT SCHEDULE - Saturday 7/22/2006 - Continental Flight #136
QM Rose will act as Official Air Traffic Controller for the event. She will be assisted by HM Queen Emily and the Young Royals, Prince Brutus and Princess Marigold.
Al and Linda make beautiful custom pillows (and other goodies). The pillow above was made for Karen C and shows her three cats, Grr, Midnight and Cocoa. It was designed using the photo on the right. If you are interested in your own pillow, their email is: firstname.lastname@example.org. And to see more of Karen C's three kitties, check out their blog at: http://grrmidnightcocoa.blogspot.com/.
