My first 5 days

Day 1: Mom and Dad receive a phone call from the *North Shore Animal League. There is a pure white kitten that is looking for a home. Mom and Dad go to NSAL and see me in my cage. They fall in love ... fill in the paper work ... make a donation ... and take me home...where I am sequestered in a bathroom!
Day 2: I meet Dr. Landerfeld, my veterinarian. She likes my name ... Mickey Mantle. After examining me and giving me my shots, she decides that I can meet my brother Whitey Ford who was adopted exactly one week before!
Day 3: Whitey and I get to know each other. We spend most of our time in the bathroom. Our sister Kallie is slightly annoyed that we're there ... so we are separated until we can be properly introduced.
Day 4 and Day 5: Whitey and I slowly get to know Kallie (who is a good friend to me now) I spend a lot of time playing with Whitey ... and eating my meals. Mom, Dad, and the 2-legs play with us.
Whitey Ford and me ... in the beginning!
*My family had just lost their cat "Sydney" and put out the word that they were looking for another white cat. They had adopted Syd from the North Shore Animal League and called them after he went to the Bridge. Dr. Landerfeld found Whitey Ford for them. Even though they had their white kitty ... they couldn't resist me.

My darling Mickeybear,

Awwww, what a precious little kitten fellow you were! I'm ***melting***. I just want to kiss the little you on your sweet itty bitty forehead! And *giggle*, my mom made a SQUEE noise when she saw the picture of you and your brother Whitey.

I loved reading about your first five days! And I'm not the least bit surprised that your mom and dad couldn't resist you. I wouldn't be able to resist you, either, even if I wanted to (and ohhhh, I would never, ever want to *smile*!).

What a fine, handsome, big mancat you have grown up to be, my dear! It makes me happy to see what you looked like as a little fellow. I wish Mom had kitten pictures of me, but I didn't come to my mom and dad and my forever home until I was an mature girl (just last year).

Purrs and whisker-kisses,

Your ever-loving Marilyn

Oh, what beautiful little kittens you and Whitey Ford were! Who would have guessed that such little fuzzballs would grow into such big handsome mancats!
