Diana says: I volunteer at the Toronto Humane Society, where I visit and play with the resident kitties, help to feed them, and photograph them. From time to time one or another captures my heart and becomes my "favorite." For the time she was at the shelter, Suki was definitely my favorite.

When I first met her, I saw that the previous people that fed her wrote on her chart that she didn't want to eat and only ate three mls. When I took her and tried to feed her, she didn't want to eat from the syringe, but kept sucking on my finger as though it was a nipple. So I put the food into a bottle and she ate for 1.5 hours! No joke, she ate at least 45 mls that day, and would have kept eating if I had given her more food. She was the funniest kitten. After she ate, her belly would get distended which made her look even funnier! She kept sucking on my finger and purring endlessly. I think she missed her mommy as she was in a cage all by herself. I named her Suki. At first I named her Suckie because she kept sucking on things, but then I thought Suki was a much nicer name :) Her expressions were so cute. Her nose was a little peeled off so it appeared bigger than it really was. She was the funniest and cutest kitten and I was in love with her.

One day I went to see her and found that she had charmed other volunteers as well. Another volunteer loved Suki and was trying to talk her boyfriend into letting her bring her home. I kept trying to convince her to take Suki and she kept trying to convince me to take Suki. But too bad, someone else beat us to it! I am happy for her, but at the same time I miss her heaps! She truly was a special kitten whose charm came so effortlessly and who was even cuter because she was unaware of it. Oh, Suki... I hope you will always have good food to eat and a warm place to sleep.
