Story time #6:
Hi, I'm Bravo! I'm the baby of the crew. Mama had seen my cat mom in the parking lot at work a few times over a couple months in 2015 but she had no idea she was pregnant with me and my siblings! One day in November a coworker came in holding a box and inside there we were! We were just little kittens. My cat mom wasn't with us, but when they left to take us to the vet she walked right up to them when they set my box on the ground. I guess she figured that she'd put up with the humans who had been leaving food for her if it meant she got to be with her babies. She meowed the whole way to the vet.
The vet said we were about 5 weeks old. There were 4 of us and mama's coworkers named us Alpha, Bravo, Charlie and the only girl, Delta. Even though mom was gray and white and my siblings were an orange brown tabby, I came out the runt of the litter and almost all black (I have a little white 'milk spot' on my chin and a white patch on my chest) with blue eyes [now yellow] and with a crooked tail! It's a 90* angle! None of us felt very good and sadly Delta died from pneumonia shortly after we got to the vet. We stayed there for a month until we were healthy and strong. Alpha and Charlie were taken home by mama's coworkers and I went home with her boss. The vet said she was happy I had a home to go to because people don't like black cats. WHAT?! A month later in January 2016 I went to live with my mama because her boss found out she was moving for work and I couldn't go.
That picture is from January when mama first got me. I am a lot bigger now! Well, parts of me... my head and paws are still small but my body is long and fat! She says I look funny. She also says I am not really a kitten since I will be 2 this fall, but that's just a technicality.
Dad says I'm obsessed with her, but that's only because I come running when she calls, cry until she picks me up/try to climb her to be held, follow her around, insist I am on her lap/chest/shoulder as much as she'll put up with... I don't see where he gets this 'obsessed' word from!! 🐱
