Kitty Star of the Week for Aug. 26 - Sep. 1, 2007.

Our kitty is Carmen, and her person-mom writes,

"How Carman (A.K.A. Dolly) adopted us:

"My husband and I moved to Arizona from Minnesota in Oct. 2004 (we were going to be petless due to my terrible allergies). We decided to take a trip to Mexico in November of 2004. We reached Nogales, Arizona late and decided to check into a hotel. While checking into our hotel I had to use the restroom and I had to use the gas station across the street (for whatever reason), as I was walking, this dirty, scrawny, little kitty was following me, rubbing up against me, purring, meowing. I shooed her away into the bushes, trying to remember my husband and I decided to be petless from now on. While my husband was checking into the hotel the lady behind the desk saw me and the kitty interacting and said to my husband 'Wow, that little kitty has been hanging around here for a couple days and she NEVER lets anybody get close to her, if you can catch her, you can keep her. Please...try to get her, you can keep her in your room if you want.' To make a long story short I came out of the gas station with a box of kitty food, to find my husband holding the kitty in his arms.


"We never did make it across the border. The next morning we drove straight home, made a vet appointment and the rest is history. We named her after the lady behind the desk at the hotel - Carman. Later she told me her name is really Dolly. So her legal name is Carman and her nickname is Dolly.

"She is the most perfect angel in the world! She catches bugs right out of mid air for her momma. (She knows momma doesn't like bugs.) Dolly loves to snuggle with her momma and rough-house with her daddy."

And now her kitty-daddy writes,

"Every morning our cat Carmen sits in her tree house waiting for me to play with her, its like a ritual every morning. She waits until I put my towel on (after my shower) and then she meows and won't quit until I start to play with her. If I ignore her she will go to the foot of the bed and try to swipe at me playfully until I do (and I ALWAYS do). When we are done playing she can get on with her day and do her cat things that she does when we are not there.


"Dolly holds a very special place in our hearts, we talk about her when we are not at home. We both love her soooo much!"
