Marshmellow looks like a flame point Siamese, but his mother is a stray short-haired red American cat; we are not sure about his dad. When his mother Spooky (who we had been feeding and taking care of) was pregnant we did not notice until about five weeks in and she was getting big.
I asked her "have a white kitty cat, okay Spooky?"
I was thinking she was not going to. When she was about nine weeks in we started getting worried; we didn't see her at all for a few days but after several hours she came out of our friend's garage - skinny! We went over and asked to check and sure enough the kittens were in there. She had six in total, one white one and I said "this one's mine".
After a few weeks we brought the mother and kittens in under our porch with food, water, a litter box,and a cage for them. I started bringing Marshmellow into my room and holding him a lot for about an hour or two. He was getting some orange on him and I thought "he looks like a Siamese", so I looked it up and found this site and sure enough he is a flame point.
Once Marshmellow was eight weeks old we brought him and the others up here for good (we are planning on spaying the mother and fixing all the kittens). We gave a friend of ours one that looked like the mother and he named her Sassy.
We named the two black cats Kathloo (my brother says it's a demon name lol), the one that we think is a chocolate point Siamese was named Smokey, and the last one is like a long-haired American blue - we named him Outlaw.
Marshmellow comes to me whenever I call him, no matter where I am. I trained him to sit and he loves getting brushed, being held, having his nails trimmed, belly rubbed and petted but he only lets me do all of them. As you can see in the pictures he is just starting to get stripes on his face.
Marshmellow has a few nicknames (Marshy, Marsh, and rarely, Sand Angel.) I will always love Marshmellow; he has a permanent spot in my heart.
Note from Caroline: Shadow submitted a second story about another cat of hers, Patches. We combined the two stories as they seem to go together well. Here's Patches' story.
