I would like you all to meet and give a big paws up to todays Star Kit, Amelia. She is a 14 week old Tortoiseshell/American Domestic Shorthair
from Orlando, FL, USA.
Amelia found me. I went to the shelter in the hopes of adopting a male, black kitten and one of the volunteers handed Amelia to me. I held her and she was very nice, but not what I’d come for. I put her down so the volunteer could put her back in her cage and she leapt from the volunteer and into the tiny cat carrier I had brought with me. She curled up in a circle, looked straight at me, and meowed as if to say, “Let’s go!”
She’s since become quite a well travelled kitten, and she loves her cat carriers, although she grew out of that first one. She is very spoiled and has lots of toys but her favorite things are the caps to seltzer water bottles. She will sneak in and steal the cap from under your hand and run full speed away with it if you are not vigilant. If the cap is on the bottle, she will attempt to remove it with her (budding) teeth. True to the reputation for tortie cats, she is very smart.
