Neko ~ My Japanese Lucky Cat
The past two years have taken quite a toll on me. My mother passsed away in April 2006, my father-in-law in Jan 2007, and most recently my Bones cat passed away with me here at home just before last xmas. So in all my sadness I decided to get a new kitty. My Bones was an abandoned kitten dropped off at my home. A photo I took of him won a photo contest sponsored by our local humane society, found on my animal webpage here: Inspirational Images For Animal Lovers
I found OP at the same shelter that Bone's calendar was in. OP was dropped off at the shelter and found trying to keep warm in the Oil Pan of the shelter's van. I fell in love with him immediately, when I saw his photo. He had special Japanese eyes. We went back to that shelter 3xs, being animal lovers it was so hard. But something drew me to OP, we finally got him. He was very sickly for 2 weeks, but I nursed him back to health, and he is a wonderful addition to our family. My chocolate lab Delilah loves him!
