We rescued Olive in September of 2012, shortly after I had unexpectedly lost my 5 yr old black kitty. I missed having a black kitty in the house. She is now 19 mths old and LOVES to climb and hangout in our Christmas Tree. Currently that nutcracker is the only ornament on the tree, except for the angel on top. She is full of energy & lots of love. We are so glad she found us.
