The Foster’s Kitty:  In January 2013 we visited the old OPHS shelter to find a replacement for our dearly departed Cali. Josi was in the kitten room and she stood up against door of her cage and meowed at Wendy as if to say pick me, pick me!  So we brought her home and we have been her housekeeping staff ever since.  She is a Torti with Tortitude!
