    A few years back me and my sister found a small

    kitten. A small, black, trembling kitten. He seemed to have been left behind somewhere so we ended up taking him home. The first thing we did was get him cleaned up and taken to the vet. Once he had gotten the all-clear, we bought him home and kept him as he had nowhere else to...

    My cat used to bite me on the toes in the
