He was originally named "Fessy" (yuck) then the Mommies renamed him "Dasvidaniya" (transliterated Russian for "until we meet again" daa-svee-daan-eeyaa) then they thought they were not going to be able to keep him, then decided that "Yes...Yes we can... we can make it through this." and re-renamed him "Book" so that his fresh start would have no bad connotations; coincidentally the same day they got me!
They chose to use date they got him minus 3 years cuz owner didn't know real date. He had been in 5 previous homes.AND he was only 3 years old! :-(
The Mommies found him, like they found me... via Craigslist. As you just read, the Mommies had some rocky times for those 9 days -- but when he saw me, he saw a cute kitten to father/brother over!! I helped him to start on the path of the Less Skitterish.
