Bernard from Bernard St.

This is Bernard. He's a 3 month old kitten that my sister rescued last week from a store basement.
The owner didn't want to give the kitten to my sister because she said she would never be able to catch him because he's too wild.
He's all black, but he had been shaved for some reason? His fur was matted maybe? My sister doesn't know his full story. She told the store owner that she was going to take him home and find him a home since she already has four cats.
Bernard was in a carrier at the store when my sister picked him up. He hid under her bed and hissed and growled. It didn't take him long to come out and get some love from her and meet the other cats.

Bernard moved to his new home today with a very loving couple who have another rather shy cat. I think they're going to all be happy.

My sister misses Bernard a lot. She had him for almost a week and thought about keeping him. At least she has her other four kitties to cheer her up and they do since they are quite the cast of characters.

This is Ruggles. He adores my sister and follows her everywhere. He was the only one who really liked Bernard, but then he's easily entertained isn't he?

Yay! I love animal stories with happy endings. Your sister was so sweet to take Bernard and find him a home. :)

Oh Ruggles...that is the cutest picture I've seen of him...he's really not a cat you know. He's a person. md
