I had heard about a little black and white kitten that was living on the streets of our town, but I wasn't looking for another cat. Several days later, he came running through traffic, looked up at me and "squeaked", and I was a goner! A friend named him "Asparagus" after a character in the musical "Cats", and we call him Gus. He is now grown up with long silky fur in black and white patches. He is very friendly and relaxed, greeting all guests at the door and insisting on testing all laps and exploring all purses and bags. We've nicknamed him "Mr. Personality", and he'll never live on the streets again!
