What can I say about Larkin? She’s the most amazing, beautiful cat that I have ever met. She has lovely ice blue eyes, a soft chocolate coloured coat and is the friendliest girl ever. Larkin came to us late June of 2006. She’d come into the local animal shelter on June 1st after having being found in a live trap in the woods. She’d obviously been left in the trap for quite some time as she was very, very thin, most of her coat had fallen out, and her face was badly scraped from rubbing it up against the trap, most likely trying to free herself. Larkie, as I like to call her, waited patiently at the shelter for her original owners to claim her, but no one came looking for her. Then she waited for her forever family to adopt her, but once again, no one came for her. Even though she was in rough condition, we fell deeply in love with her and knew she belonged with us! On the day that we went to the shelter to bring her home, she was in the line up to be put to sleep due to lack of space. My heart began to race when I saw her pretty little face and stunningly gorgeous blue eyes look up at me from inside the tiny carrier in the hallway. We scooped up the carrier and off we went, I couldn’t believe how close we had come to almost never seeing her again.
Once at home, I let Larkin into my bedroom, she became instant best friends with my four other cats, cuddling up to them on the bed and purring loudly. She came to her new name right away, as if she had lived here for her entire life, she fit in perfectly! Lark always meows when I say her name.
With lots of love, patience, quality food and grooming her regularly, Larkin became very healthy and even more beautiful than ever imagined!
Larkie can usually be found sitting on my dresser, looking out the window or else cuddled up on the bed with her brothers. But call her name, rattle some cat treats or open the closet door (she knows her favorite kitty string toys are kept in there!) and she’ll come running! I’m so lucky to own Lark and have her in my life forever! :)
