Meet Cynamin! She’s a sweet, two month old ginger tabby from Pennsylvania.
Cyamin just happened to be at the right place at the right time when someone special saved her life.
Her mom, Yvonne, tells us all about this fateful meeting in the story below.
A Fateful Meeting
Cynamin was actually more of a “save a life” than a rescue.
You see, one month ago today, I stepped out onto my building’s fire escape and saw this little tiny baby kitten running around to my left where my neighbor was sitting.
My initial reaction was, “oh my you got a kitten, how cute.”
I walked over and picked the beautiful baby kitten up, but she was scared.
I asked my neighbor when and where she got her and was told she was given to her from a relative the day before.
However, my neighbor told me the kitten been hiding under her couch ever since she got there, would not eat, and didn’t like her.
To make matters worse, my neighbor said that she wanted a black kitten with white paws, so she didn’t want the beautiful ginger kitten she’d been given.
She then said to me, “Do you want her?”
I had just lost my precious Pete The Cat on June 1st and I was not quite ready for another cat or kitten.
However, seeing this little baby kitten running around on a dangerous fire escape with my neighbor not caring about her or her safety, I did what was in my heart and said, “Yes, I’ll take her.”
Strangely enough, this kitten looked a lot like Pete the Cat.
No cat could ever replace Pete, but there was something special about this kitten that reminded me of him.
Ironically, I haven’t had a kitten since I was very young, so this was definitely something new!
I was up for the challenges and the road ahead.
I love ginger cats, however I didn’t want to name her ginger.
Since she has added so much spice to my life, I named her Cynamin with creative spelling and she responds very well to her new name.
In this one month, Cynamin has/is growing nicely, gotten into everything she can, become very comfortable in her new home, and become my “velcro kitten” (my legs are proof!).
Cynamin is very entertaining and has become comfortable with me in what was once my bed, but is now hers.
No problem, I don’t mind having a baby kitten at the age of 64!
What is Cynamin’s personality like?
Due to the way she lived before I saved her, Cynamin needs of a lot of one-on-one attention.
She’s very happy and playful, however, meeting new people makes her nervous at first.
She eventually warms up to them and wants to play.
She has my best friend wrapped around her paws!
She loves to roughhouse despite being a female kitten.
Now that Cynamin is comfortable in her new home, she has a healthy appetite.
She’ll indulge in any form of wet food, Friskies Dry Kitten Food, and Friskies Party Mix Snacks.
In Honor of Pete the Cat
In all seriousness, I truly believe that along with God, Pete The Cat had his paws in this union with Cynamin.
I was devastated by his loss. Pete was family– he was my entire world.
I feel like Pete did not want me to be alone and sad, so he put Cynamin and I in the right place at the right time!
Thank you god and Pete The Cat; mommy is going to be fine now. You can rest in peace now, my love!
