Why Orange Kitty?

My name is Natalie, I'm married, currently pregnant, live in Seattle, and I would be a crazy cat lady at the ripe old age of 25 if my husband didn't keep me in check. Of course, this means I have more than one cat, so why the ORANGE Kitty Workshop?

Obviously, I play favorites.

Actually, all of my cats have had feline leukemia, which is an immune system-suppressing disease that can be transferred between cats, so cats with feline leukemia are generally only adopted out to homes with other leukemia kitties. When I worked at a cat shelter a few years ago, a scraggly orange cat came into the shelter and tested positive for leukemia, so my boss, knowing I had been thinking about adopting my first cat, pawned him off on me. We only expected him to live a year, but he's fat and spoiled and still healthy, three and a half years later. Thus, he's our favorite and I named my blog after him. Told you he was spoiled.

Our second leukemia positive cat lived with us for two and a half years before dying from the leukemia at the age of 4. Our third leukemia cat is ridiculously fat, but currently healthy and good buddies with Orange Kitty. Maybe one day I'll name quilts or something after them. Even if they aren't orange.
