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.
