Kitty: My Story

I was born a humble street kitten.  

See the photo of the woman in pink holding me?  

That is my Mum Kathy.  She and her partner Richard raised me in a tent and brought me to MHCAN every day.  I started coming from when I was super tiny.

However, one day I said to my kitten self, I want MORE than TWO humanz to order around.  I want a BUNCH of humanz to OBEY me and pander to my every perfect whimsy!

Thus I came to MHCAN…

I was so cute as a kitten that everybody fell in love with me. 

With time, cuddlez and good wet food, in time I learned the Art of Being A Peer Support Kitten.

As time went on, I came to live full time at MHCAN.  The people are really nice, except the Executive Director, who sometimes just gives me dry food and not daily wet food WHICH I PREFER.  She is hopefully teachable. I am good at training humanz.
