Many, many years ago, the humans rescued a kitty and kept her until they found her a good home. She showed up one night at a meditation workshop they were attending. She just walked in, flopped down and made herself at home. The center was located on a busy Hollywood street, so she was apparently homeless.
My first impression of her was not a good one, since my human’s boyfriend immediately took her for a checkup and to be spayed. In her getup, I did not think she was fashion forward.
She had some very strange habits. For example, she was always killing my human’s stuffed animals.
And she had that water fetish that some of you other kitties have that I don’t understand.
Even so, we did get to be friends eventually. She knew the value of a good box.
She and Binga did not get along. Partly because she kissed up to the dog, and Binga thought the dog was her sole property. For the whole month the kitty lived with us, Binga did not speak in her normal tone of voice, just in falsetto.
Eventually someone from the meditation class said she wanted her, so my humans packed her up and took her to her new home. But they were very sad to see her go. I was a little too… but to be honest, she was kind of bossy.
If you want to know more about her, you can read about her here and here.
Oh, she sounds nice enough–IF you aren’t a kitty already living there. It seems that she made herself right at home–maybe a little too quickly for your taste. I’m glad she found a nice home though and that you took such good care of her until she found it. Your Mommeh has a big heart. 🙂
It’s always good to have an extra friend, even for a short time, and even if that friend seems a little strange.
Sounds like she was a great visitor, and that you had a wonderful time together. It’s always hard saying goodbye, isn’t it?
Thank you so much for stopping by to offer such kind words when our Maggie passed away. We are still sad, but the kindness of friends like you sure helps…
I love that picture of the visitor walking away with the stuffed animal – so funny. She looks like a sweet and silly kitty, and I’m glad she found a home!
What a pretty kitty! We’re glad your human and her boyfriend rescued her from the streets and found her a furever home!
It is hard to say goodbye to friends.
Wow…she’s very pretty…Aces that she got a forever home!

She sure was a pretty girl! We’re glad she found a good home – so you could reclaim yours.
What a pretty girl!
We are so happy she got her forever home!
(and we think Binga was too)
Me understands how Binga feels. But she now has a place to call her own and Binga cant get upset! That is good! Wish me could get rid of the brat that easy….
he he- she might have been bossy, but she sure was a pretty girl.
She is a cutie, but I’ve heard that calicos can be a bit bossy at times. I’m so glad she got her own home!
Sparkle! I’m surprised at you! Judging someone by appearance is not acceptable. Someone doesn’t have to be fashion forward to be nice. (OK, so she turned out to be bossy, but you know what I mean.)
Maybe mom and dad should take you to meditation class with them so you can get a new perspective on these things, young lady! 😉

That’s good that she found a loving home! Thank you for taking her in and getting her spayed. We know that is a lot of work with in-house kitties who don’t really like intruders.

I am glad that you flashbacked, I enjoyed reading this.
Hoping you are safe and sound and out of the way of Mother Nature’s wrath
I think that was a smart kitty to find a home at a meditation class. Did the people who took her need extra relaxation lessons?

This kitty is adorable, she is really beautiful, thanks for sharing these pictures!
Toby & Leia says

We are so pleased that visiting cat found a lovely new home. We bet Binga was doing her happy dance when she moved!!

Link Bartholomew says
Too funny. Sparkle, you’re a good cat for tolerating her. Poor Binga. We know those torties are possessive!
That was a nice story and we are glad she got a good home. Too bad she had to leave since you and she were friends Sparkle. But she is probably happier without any competition. Hope you have a super week end.
Daisy the Curly Cat says
Oh wowie, she sure is a pretty kitty! I love the markings on her coat.
The Island Cats says
She’s a pretty kitty!! We’re glad she got a good home…and we bet Binga is too!!
Max the Quilt Cat says
Such a pretty kitty. Great photos…
Eric and Flynn says
She is a pretty girl, but not as beautiful as you of course! We are glad she went to a loving Forever Home, and Binga was probably very glad about it.
How is it that your house is wall-to-wall bootiful girlcats?
