We adopted her from the local shelter, where she was one of five kittens dropped off after a family pet's "unplanned pregnancy". Her brothers were orange tabbies, friendly and nice in their way, but this one stole my heart the minute I saw her. She started purring before I'd even touched her, and she showed no signs of fear or hostility at all.
The shelter folks named her Snickers, after the chocolate bar. Certainly her fur is all the colors of a Snickers wrapper, and my boys liked the name, so I guess we're keeping it.
