A half a year ago, when I was out on my own and was first getting into the idea of getting a kitten I searched far and wide for one that fit my "look" standard(don't get mad I am explaining). I found something called an Oci cat, and put an order in for a special "color"...along the way I spent over 1,000$ on my 2 dogs, who both have had serious health issues, and continue to have costly vet bills.. not ever realizing that with their "name" and "papers" often comes diseases that incestry cause. 6 months ago I found a kitten outside, unable to properly care for a kitten, I took her to the humane society. I saw 50+ cats there, and kept telling myself..she is a kitten she will get adopted fast, unable to convince myself I loaded up and drove the 50 miles to the humane society that I dropped her off at and adopted her, Tinkerbelle came home with me, where I truely believe she belongs. Well today I recieved a call that the kitten I back ordered months ago was born, and that I am on top of a long waiting list, I was given 2 days to decide if I wanted her, and at 5 today those 2 days are up..but I have realized..In a name, oci cat, and a beautiful cat no doubt, it's just a name...Tinkerbelle may not have a paper stating her beauty, but I don't need it..she is my cat, and I am perfectly happy with that.
