My husband was working security at an apartment complex 2 years ago as he was making his rounds he came across a group of teenagers kicking something around that is when he noticed they were kicking a kitten back and forth, when he headed toward the group they took off running and the kitten came running to him ran right up his leg and sat on his shoulder he was about 4 weeks old, this baby had a burn on the back of his neck and was skin and bones, we already had 6 cats so my husband called me and said he was bringing him home so that I could bathe and feed this little guy but that we could not keep him. I took care of him nursed him back to health and tried so hard to find him a loving home but no one wanted him so we kept him and named him Shadow he follows us every where .

I am so glad we kept him he is the light of our life he sits on a foot stool in the kitchen every night when I make dinner even puts his front paws on the counter and watches, he loves hugs and kisses and loves to play fetch, he is so smart, he loves family hugs and likes to jump from the floor onto our shoulder if we aren't paying attention to him, he reminds me of a small child and after losing our daughter in 2010 it is nice to have a cat like him, he is so unique and sweet and out of all of our cats is the only one that loves our large dogs. We are so very happy we kept him we are truly blessed with all 8 of our cats.
