My daughter is a college student, and found this sweet kitten outside her boyfriend's apartment just before the weather turned cold in upstate NY. Sinatra is a deaf, loving, rascally teenage kitty...gets himself in trouble opening cabinets and taking everything out. She tried without luck to find him a home and called all the no-kill shelters in the area but couldn't find him a place. She just couldn't bear to take him to the pound.
I suggested my daughter ask her grandma to foster him until she moved to her apartment in the fall. Grandma and Grandpa drove from Cape Cod, picked him up and instantly fell in love with his nutty, social, purring personality. Despite the fact that Sinatra (their name for him because of his striking blue eyes) has broken things, displaced jewelry and out-alpha'd their rescue dog, it's going to be difficult for them to give him back to my daughter next fall.
