I came home from work one day in late October and my fiancé told me there was a cat in our ditch.
Being an animal person I immediately went out to get some cat food and came back to find a skinny little Siamese cat, scared and hungry. I gave him food and water every day for two weeks outside before realizing the cat was not going home and no one seemed to be searching for it.
I took him in and posted his picture, looking for an owner. No one claimed the poor little thing so I took him.
After a trip to the vet I learned he was four months old, had been neutered and must have had all his needles. (To be safe, he got a few more).
I was never a cat person, and had never dreamed of owning such a beautiful one. But he stole my heart and I could never let him go.
I named him Sapphire (Sappy for short) and he is the biggest mama's boy! He never leaves my side. Shortly after I took him in I started working at a local health pet food store. Needless to say he is one very spoiled kitty.
He's a little over a year now and doing very well. Through my research of Siamese, I'm almost sure he is a lilac point, he was very pale as a baby but has been getting a bit darker.
Enjoy his picture, he is definitely one handsome boy!

Hi Paige and welcome! Sapphire's a beautiful Applehead Siamese and I think you're right, he is a lilac or possibly a blue point. I love reading stories like this and am so glad he's found a welcoming and loving new home with you.
