Pilot came to me as a tiny 8 week old kitten, the result of a friend with an un-spayed outdoor cat. I brought her home in a mandarin orange box. At first I thought Pilot was a ‘he’ because orange cats are rarely ever females (my friend insisted this), but after a few weeks I realized that Pilot was in fact a ‘she’. She likes sleeping under the covers of the bed, sitting on my shoulders while I sit at the computer, and dipping her paws into every glass of water I pour myself. My love for this cat borders on obsessive. Fact: her face is tattooed on my forearm. She is 5 years old, and a Virgo.
