We adopted Violet in February 2013 at 4 months and we knew from the moment we met her she was our new baby. We would love to connect with any of her siblings, especially brother, Quatro, who may live in the Bay Area. The SPCA told us she was part of a litter found in a Salinas barn. We believe all of her siblings were also all black and they were treated for an extended period of time before being available for adoption.
Violet, formerly Tres, was the second-to-last of her litter to be adopted. Her brother, Quatro, whom she was paired with for their stay, was still quarantined for treatment at the time we adopted Violet. We think it would be sweet to set up a play date with her brother, if it could be possible.
We introduced Violet to her brother, by adoption, Elton, who actually lives full-time in my mother-in-law’s apartment, the garden-level of our home. We share caring for the cats and we were so lucky that they bonded very quickly.
Violet and Elton are indoor cats with daily outside time on harnesses and leashes in the gardens surrounding our property. They look forward to going outside first thing every morning to sprint, hide under the ferns, catch bugs, roll around in the ornamental grass areas, and make their rounds to sniff for other animals that pass through.
When Violet is not running around playing and drinking from faucets, she is stretched out on her back, paws extended over her head, in one of her sun-filled perches, each situated on a different side of the house, in front of a window for fresh ocean air breeze and the sounds of hummingbirds.
Violet turns 9 months old this week and she is the most sweet, fun, and caring kitten we could ever ask for. We truly consider her our child and can’t imagine our lives without her.
