Asleep under my desk.
My tail is pouffed and I'm ready for action.
BORN: 24 April 2006
This adorable boy is fearless, good-natured and quick to purr. I saw this orange and white kitten and his brother (a brown tabby) playing in the well-fenced yard of a house a short distance up the street from me. The house sits empty, so I knew they didn't belong to people there. It turned out they came from a beautiful mama cat called Sabrina who lived in the house behind that one.
I watched them from tiny kittenhood until they were about four months old. I knew the woman who had Sabrina wanted to find homes for them, but nothing seemed to be happening. Finally, while out on my daily walk, I saw him playing on the side of the road next to the large drainpipe he used to get in and out of the yard.
He scampered into the pipe when I approached, but I sat down outside it and found he was easy to coax within reach. He grabbed at my fingers and was very playful. He didn't mind letting me pet him, so after a couple of minutes, I simply picked him up and brought him home. I checked with the woman the next day and she was delighted to let me keep him.
He settled into the Horde almost instantly with a minimum of fuss. After a couple of days here, he looked up at me and said, "I got my MOJO working!" And so he became Mojo.
Give me something to pounce on!
