Have you ever had a day that felt like the WORST DAY EVER!? Well, I will tell you about my really bad day...that turned into a very very GOOD DAY!

I was only a few weeks old and don't remember how it happened, but I found myself all alone in the middle of nowhere! That's a bad place for a teeny baby. A nice man found me and brought me to find someone who could care for me. As luck would have it, he met a woman whose brother was fostering a momma cat who was still nursing 3 kittens! The woman called her brother to see if she could bring me home to meet the momma. I think it was my very loud pitiful crying that pulled his heart strings and he said to bring me home. I cried all the way! I guess my cries tugged at the mama's heart strings too, because she immediately showed us that she would take care of me! And, again as luck would have it, I looked just like the mama and one of her kittens! Truly this was meant to be!

I went from being totally alone, hungry and miserable to having a new mama, 2 sisters, a brother and a foster dad all in about an hour! I was named Miriam to go along with the names my siblings had, they were named from a show called The Odd Couple. Boy, talk about a happy ending to a bad day! But really, my story hasn't ended yet!

I love love love to play! And I will snuggle up and purr for you too. If you like to watch TV, well count me in! I find some shows fascinating! I love to chase my kitty toys, I'm pretty talented at sitting up with my front paws off the floor too. I will say I'm a bit hesitant to go outside, I don't want to get lost in that big world again.

Could you be the one to write my story's happy ending?

Want to adopt a kitten? We highly recommend you consider bringing home two instead of one! Adopting kittens in pairs has been proven to be beneficial for cats’ emotional and behavioral well-being and greatly improves the likelihood of long-term adopter happiness as a result. Adopting more than one kitten also reduces the risk of “Single Kitten Syndrome” (also known as Tarzan Syndrome), a symptom of under-socialization during a kitten’s most formative weeks. Kittens who are under-socialized may develop aggressive tendencies toward both other animals and humans as they grow, creating lifelong behavioral issues for owners.
