Update on "Flag"- a kitten adopted from Animalkind in July 2004:
Dear wonderful folks at Animalkind,
May I take this opportunity to introduce you to "Flag". He will be a year old by the beginning of June. We adopted him on July 3rd 2004. As you can see by his photo he has blossomed into a priceless diamond. As a kitten, he came into a home with three older cats.
A Maincoon, we call Andy, took Flag in. They became the best of friends. In fact, Andy washed Flag just as a mommy cat would do. It would be almost impossible to explain Flags intellect, for as strange as it sounds, it is almost as if he had lived here before. Very odd! All of our "boys" were cast-off's. All go out on leashes.
All are beautiful beings but Flag defies the term "cat". The other two cats are Baby Kitty, a totally black older cat. Than there is Luther, a grey striped tiger. Luther was feral and we tamed him years ago.
Flag is a gentleman, who welcomes guests and sees them to the door when they leave. He thinks the bathtub is his and has a tennis ball in there to play with. He sits down on a braided rug as I pull it through the house.
Playing "boogyman" is his very favorite thing to do. He gets under the comforter on any bed in the house and scares folks as they pass by. He loves to hear us scream! He loves classical music, tuna fish and being carried around. This is my wonderful little Flag. Most of all and through it all, I have always been keenly aware of the role you played in bringing us together.
From my heart I want to say "Thank You" for keeping him safe until I found my way to him. You are such wonderful people doing God's work. You are so very necessary!
