Meet Megan! She’s a chatty 14-year-old girl from Illinoise.
Megan appeared in her human’s life on a fateful day when she needed her the most.
Her mom, Cindy, tells us all about Kitty’s humble beginnings in the story below.
A New Start
I was devastated when I had to put my 20-year-old senior cat down due to renal failure.
Around that time, I went to a pet store looking for fish for my aquarium, but suddenly I heard kittens meowing.
I just had to take a peak…
I approached the kittens and there she was– a beautiful little tuxedo kitten, just like the cat I’d just lost.
I adopted her on the spot and brought her home.
She helped she healed my heart. It’s as if fate knocked on the door and little Megan answered.
She is the most loving, funny, vocal little kitty I’ve ever had!
Why did you name her “Megan”?
My senior cat that died of renal failure was a boy named Megabyte.
I wanted to name my new tuxedo baby something similar in his honor, so I added an “n” to “mega” and named her Megan.
Her full name is Megan Kiana.
Kiana was a dear Native American friend of mine who passed away in the 80s.
What does Megan like to do for fun?
Megan is strictly an indoor cat, but she sure loves to chatter at the birds outside through the window.
She loves to play fetch and “hunt” her toy mice and interactive toys.
Megan is extremely affectionate. She LOVES to cuddle!
She’ll rub my face with her head and gently bump her head against me.
In the evening she’s always by my side. She sleeps with me every night.
What is Megan’s personality like?
Megan is BOSSY! She is smart…a little too smart sometimes.
I started teaching her tricks when she was 4 months old.
Now she’s 14! Megan has all kinds of tricks up her sleeve.
I also have conversations with her and started doing that the day I got her.
If she meowed, I’d asked her what she wanted or say “Oh really? Tell me about it.”
She’s very chatty and loves to talk back!
Megan isn’t shy when she wants something. She just asks.
She’ll walk in the kitchen where I keep the treats and stand there chirping until I give in.
If I say “bye bye” she’ll respond with “meow meow”.
She always knows when it’s time for bed. If I say “night night”, she’ll run to the bedroom and hop on the bed.
If it’s passed 11:30pm and I haven’t gone to bed yet, Megan will hop on my lap and gently tap on my arm, shoulder, and face, before running back to the bedroom.
That’s her way of saying it’s time to sleep and snuggle.
She’s a sweetheart with a big personality and she loves her mama!
