Sasha joined our family the summer of 2010.
Some kind person deposited five, five week old kittens on the road leading up our mountain. I felt bad because I was working
that weekend and could not get them. My wonderful next door neighbors, Dan and Yvonne and their son Larry, spent several
days going through the bug infested grass and woods until they rescued all five. At least I was able to loan them capture
nets. The kittens consisted of a short haired yellow tabby, a long haired solid black, a short haired solid black, a
long haired shaded tuxedo, and Sasha. There she was, a long haired blond tortie. Now I love calicos and torties
and have always wanted one with long hair. With the exception of Callie, I have always taken cats on the basis of needing
a home rather than a desired color or hair length, but there she was, my dream kitten, and in need of a home. I certainly
didn't need another cat, but Kathy and I decided we would have room for one more, so Sasha joined our clan. When I went
to get her, Yvonne was having trouble finding good homes for the kittens. Some original leads were not what they seemed
and the person that was supposed to take the shaded tuxie really didin't want him anymore as her daughter had given her another
cat. So, long story short, I also ended up taking Sasha's brother and best friend Tuxie.
The siblings are joining the downstairs group. To my surprise, Theo adores them. I thought he would be
jealous and resistant to new kittens. I had always feared adding a kitten to this group as Mocha is so large and rough,
but he is wonderfully gentle with them. The only hold out at this point is Callie, but she really doesn't like anbody.
