Pumpkin and his sister Misha were rescued from beside a garbage dump. They were 4 weeks old, malnourished and terribly anemic. They were take to the vet and brought up to health. I took them home and they grew up and lived with me for quite a while. Misha lived 7 years and passed from Congestive heart failure. She was a Calico mainly black. Pumpkin lived 11 years, wound up being 20 inches tall, 28 inches long (without his 13 inch tail)! He was a lover! He would follow me around the house and if I sat he was in my lap within 10 seconds after I sat. He would give me kisses on my face (by my ear) and was alpha kitty!
