Hopeful kitty news

I went to PHS today and played with Diesel, the kitty who was found in a gasoline pump, and who had a bad reputation for being shy and sensitive.

Well, I saw hardly any shy and sensitive behavior at all. She wandered around the adoption room, looking at things, and frequently coming back to me to get petted. At first I was tentative about petting her, because people had said she bites if you try to pet her on the back or tail or belly. But then I realized she wasn't being sensitive at all. I could pet her anywhere, pick her up, you name it. She came when I called her name, and she stood on her hind legs to give my hand a head-bump, and she gave me kisses.

The only time she acted nervous was when there was a lot of thumping from upstairs. I guess I can understand that in a cat that was stuck in a gas pump.

She still looks like hell, with a lot of hair shaved on her back and hind legs and tail and some sores. But maybe if people know she's more friendly now, she will have a better chance of finding a home.

Here is the news release about Diesel.

I am so thrilled to hear this. Hopefully she will be seen as adoptable. What an ordeal for a kitty to go through.

Oh, she looks just like Dizzy. They sound so much alike, too. I nearly named Diz after the wheel-well we found her in. :)

She does! What is this attraction of black-and-white cats to automobile paraphernalia?
