Taranis, submitted by reader Michy.
From the webpage for this kitteh:
Hi, my name is Taranis, a boy orange and white kittycat (short coat), about one year old (in April 10). My life in the shelter started out in a somewhat inauspicious way. I found myself in animal control’s trap during a terrible KY thunderstorm on the evening of April 7th. Oh woe is me! I was unceremoniously dumped on the sidewalk besides the SNIP patients the next morning, wet, drenched and forlorn, and pretty banged up from trying to get out of the trap, and hence the name Taranis, the Celtic god of thunder. I also panicked and banged myself up further inside the cage. The first human kindness I experienced in my short life was from the volunteers, who tried to make me comfortable and warm, and who gave me the first square meal I’d had for some time. I am really a very friendly lad, and I’ve recovered from the trauma accompanying my arrival and my awesome face has healed up fine! I’ve put on weight, and I’m fit as a fiddle (two fiddles)! I’m a leader, I’m confident, I’m playful, I’m quirky and kind! This shelter is not conducive to my talents being fully revealed so please get me out and I’ll show you my stuff! I’ve been neutered and had my shots as well, be sure of it! I hope to see you soon! Love, Taranis
