Kitty Star of the Week for August 17 - 23, 2003.
Moskva was found abandoned on the road to Bansha, Co. Tipperary, one stormy
dawn. He was really hungry and upset at his misfortune. His new humans
took him home, and he thanked them by redecorating the back seat of
the car... such a small kitten, so much vomit.
After seemingly spending weeks asleep in the
warm ashes of the fire place (as well as eating his people out of
house and home), he shook off a nasty sneeze and started to gain
weight. Unfortunately, he ultimately lost an eye to an infection,
but the vet did a great job of
cleaning-up his rather scabby face and closed up the eye socket -
giving him a really mean looking scar. This seems to suit his
demeanour (swagger, furtiveness and tough guy routine).
Despite this hard beginning, Moskie never
stopped purring, never stopped lapping up attention.
He lives with two other 'moggies', Bib and Smock. His favourite foods
include olives, Golden Grahams and cheese. He is often seen rapidly leaving
the scene of disasters, spends hours getting his stripes in order, and
frequently moves his humans around the sofa so as to get the really
warm spot. (He recently got his own passport.)
