When we went to the shelter, we didn’t even see the little black tortie kitten in the corner of the room initially. But then she reached her paw out of her cage and lightly touched my husband – silent, expressionless, but still begging to be noticed.


The shelter employee told us that she was found all alone by some college students when she was way too young to be separated from her mother. The kids took her home but apparently didn’t realize that kittens actually need food. When she became weak, they dumped her off at the shelter.


For us, it was love at first sight. After playing with her for awhile, before we knew it, we were bringing her home.

It took only a day to notice her complete lack of expression and failure to respond to things that most cats would deem frightening. Her face is always blank, and she never made a sound. We now jokingly say that she is like a little robot, our tiny Cat-bot.


Despite her “robotic” demeanor, she is very loving and enjoys being near us, our other cat, even our dog, at all times. The two cats are now best friends and are completely inseparable. After many months of spoiling her, she now purrs and she occasionally tries to “head butt” me, but she does it with too much awkward gusto and sometimes falls over.

She is the unintentional clown of the family and her antics always fill the room with laughter. We will never know the traumas that she may have suffered as a kitten in the past, but we are thankful for all of the joy she brings into our home in the present.
