The story of Nugget

The first time I saw Nugget, I was painting a portrait of myself :D  I was still in college and we were in the middle of class.  I'm not sure why but I looked out the window (and at the parked cars) and immediately noticed 4 kittens moving around at the back of my classmate's pick up truck.  The kittens were really tiny and were getting baked in the sun... plus there was no box or cushion to protect them from the hot metal!  I remember saying something like "There are kittens outside!" loudly which I think annoyed our professor since the whole class followed me outside.  As it turns out, my classmate's dad had placed the unwanted kittens there for disposal :( As much as I wanted to take them all home with me, I knew that I could only take one. I immediately fell in love with Nugget. He was the smallest and squirmiest in the bunch yet I knew he was extra special because of his dark orange fur. I've never seen any cat more orange than him before! He looked like a chicken nugget- tiny and golden brown :) Nugget and I have been through a lot the past 10 years - moving 3 times, death of my other beloved cat, Cubi, birthdays, vet visits, living with other cats (unsuccessfully with Kirby and now with Kumo), my wedding and many other fun experiences. I love this cat so much that I have no words to describe how I feel. Hopefully, we will have more happy years together along with Kumo.
