My Beautiful Amber, June 28, 1998 - October 19, 2019



Amber was born in my back yard, June 28th of 1998. Her mom was a feral cat that had chosen to live in my back yard. Her dad was I'm pretty sure all Maine Coon. I only saw him once, I think he must have gotten out of someone's house. Amber looked exactly like him.

Amber's mom had two daughters that lived with her, and the three had kittens all around the same time, so Amber had nine litter mates. All the moms took turns nursing each others kittens.

Amber had a twin that looked just like her, only bigger, a male. He died as a kitten, had gotten sick outside and was too young to save. Another of the kittens was killed outside, I never saw the animal that did it. Other kittens were adopted, or a couple had disapeared early. I ended up taking in Amber with three other kittens, and spaying the moms.

Amber lived with her siblings (who were all short haired cats) in my house for years. The other cats passed away at different times over the years, but Amber lived to be 21, and passed away October 19th of 2019.

My husband and I loved Amber very much. She used to sit on the couch in between us, and took turns being petted by me and my husband. She was beautiful, (and I think she knew it!)!
