By then I was inside the cat room and I sat down in the chair. Most of the cats and kittens at this point became curious of me, the stranger. There was a cat-tender in the room too, and I asked about this little kitten once I realized that it was holding its front leg up close to its body as it played. She mentioned to me that the kitten had a birth defect, but that it did not hinder her in any way.
We had taken the risk and it paid off very well, no cat box misses, no spraying, and we got a beautifully well managed full grown cat, albeit disabled as we have learned over the year or so, she has a bit of feline Aspergers, but that’s OK with us, we are already very familiar with Autism in our little family so what’s another one added? We are already used to the idiosyncrasies of Autism, and Banjo has just fit right in. I think I won the heart of the Kitty attendant that very afternoon and she gave me all the paperwork I would need for adoption and I took them home to fill them out.
I must say that everyone in our Veterinary Clinic is personally related to Keiki in one way or another. She is their hero now, and when I take her in for visits everyone has to stop in to say Hi to Keiki. She is now their poster kitty and welcomed any time for a visit (not that she wants to visit), but they absolutely love her! As do we.
