Whiskers's First Christmas

Whiskers's First Christmas
Originally uploaded by Kitten Moon

This was taken right after Christmas 1985, when Whiskers was about six weeks old. We had just adopted her from the pet store in Sunvalley Mall in Concord, CA on December 26th, which had been the scene of a terrible accident a few days earlier. A small plane crashed into the mall, causing much destruction, injuries and death. The pet store was on the first floor, sort of below the area where the plane crashed. Whiskers was in the front display box window where God only knows what she saw. I definitely think it traumatized her for life but my family and I tried to make up for it by spoiling her rotten and smothering her with lots of love. She was the queen of our household for the rest of her days.
