One day in June 1985 Kathy and I were driving home; just above Ed Levin Park we saw a Cadillac pulled over by the side of the road. As we passed it, a lady emerged hold two kittens. We turned around, parked, and watched as she dumped the kittens in a bush and drove away. Thus we gained Velvet and Flannel.
Velvet suffered what’s called a degloving injury in which the skin on the end of her tail was torn off, leaving some bones sticking out. The vet snipped off the bones and tidied up the skin at the end of her tail, so she had a stumpy tail.
Velvet was killed by a coyote in September 1991.
