My boyfriend had been wanting a cat for quite a while. As we were both finishing degrees, it wasn't really feasible. That would soon change.

We had a roommate who was out bicycling one day when a man began talking to him. The man had a female kitten that he couldn't keep. He had picked her up after seeing a truck stop on the street and leave her.

Of course, our roommate said he could take her (without us knowing)! As soon as my boyfriend met the kitten, he was in love. I was out of town and did not find out about the cat until I was on my way home. I was tentative about taking on a kitten, but we compromised and kept her. :)

Stella was very loving and calm, never afraid of us. We took her to the vet and she was in perfect health other than an ear infection and some fleas. She has since warmed up to us and shown us her rambunctious side. We can play with her for hours and still barely wear her out!

Her interests include: bugs, climbing, her birdie, looking out the window, barely sleeping, and toes. Having a kitten in the house has really livened things up and we both love having her.
