Oh, Crystal, we are so sorry we didn't post about you on your special day. Jan wanted to combine your birthday with Cotton's, but hers is later in the month. You have been a loyal and loving ginger. You deserve a day all your own. So we're giving it to you, albeit belatedly.
You were so tiny when someone threw you and your twin out. You two went up and down the street trying to get someone to take you home. Somewhere along the way, you lost your twin.
Jan heard you crying outside her bedroom window. When she saw you, she stopped on a step and you raced over and leaped high into the air to reach her. Only you were too small and you crashed into the steps. So, of course, there was no way Jan was going to leave you there on the ground. She picked you up, brought you inside and broke her commitment that Jenny and Grayce would be the last animals she rescued.
She has never regretted taking you in. You immediately bonded with Grayce (it was not a mutual bond at first!) and were her closest companion until she died. To this day, your favorite sleeping spot is on Jan's pillow, occasionally reaching out to pat her face as you purr.
Jan doesn't know the exact date you were born but she gave you an approximate date - June 1st. A very Happy Belated Birthday to you, our friend and brother.
Percy has taken your place as the alpha kitty, but you will always be Jan's number 1 greeter when company comes. We hope to have many more happy, healthy years together.
