There has been the most absolutely gorgeous cat visiting our yard for a couple of months. I saw her only sporadically, though in the past week, she has been there daily. Finally, in the last couple of days she would cry for me to come to her and eventually let me pet and hold her. She even got to the point where just seeing me would put her into a kneading frenzy!

She has long very dark brownish/blackish hair with four tiny white booties, a white crest, and at the very tip of an amazingly long and full tail is a white spot. She is so beautiful that I named her after Catherine Zeta Jones...I named her Zeta.

This morning I found that her ear was torn and bloody. Since she was letting me hold her I decided that today is the day to take her in for spaying and to get her ear taken care of.

So....I call at noon to find out how it went and found out that she is a he!!!! I guess I didn't look closely enough!

I'll bring her...er....him to work tomorrow and hopefully I can find him a home soon.

So now are you going to call him Zorro? The mistake is one I make quite often- don't feel bad, and he sounds gorgeous!

As a feral kitten, we were positive Misty was a she. There was no way a male feline could be so cute, timid, complacent, and non-aggressive. I saw a green-eyed brunette model in the J.C. Penney catalog and told my daughter that was Misty as a human!

Misty's masculinity became ever more apparent, and we changed his name to "Mysty," a more masculine spelling.

We went from one male kitten to three females and another female porch cat. Go figure...

(Catherine Zeta Jones was in the Zorro movie.)

LOL! I'm sorry about the fight though.

We though ALL the kittens were little girls when they first showed up. Four turned out to be boys - there was one girl.

Zorro...I like it!

This is absolutely the sweetest cat I have ever met in my life. He snuggles and kneads and purrs like no cat I have ever seen. He snuggles up to everyone who has come in my office. There is not a feral bone in his little body. I guess he must have been abandoned.

Everyone who has come to meet Zeta/Zoro has fallen in love with him. One of my colleagues has five other cats (her sixth passed away only 2 months ago). I have a feeling she is going to adopt him! Keep your fingers crossed....she will make a great mom.

Oh...it turns out that he wasn't attacked....the HUGE sore was due to scratching a "hot spot" probably due to fleas. It looks pretty yucky but I have meds so it should get better soon.
