Smiley

Litter number: 44
Kitten number: 182
Gender: m
Color: orange tabby

Siblings: Larrabee, Ninety_Nine, April_Dancer, Galore, Bond, Ilya

was the smallest of the three orange Spies boys, and visually indistinguishable from his brother Ilya. We could only tell them apart by weighing them. When he was a only a few weeks old, Smiley got sick for a few days and had to be syringe-fed. We were briefly worried that he might be the first of several Spies to succumb to a virus. But his siblings remained healthy, and Smiley regained his appetite and got his GI tract under control. Then he did a great job catching up to his siblings on the weight and strength front.

By the time he was adopted, Smiley was completely healthy and able to romp and rassle with all comers. All the handling he received as an infant made him quite comfortable being held and petted. He went home with Bond and his mom Mata Hari to a couple of experienced cat owners with a 9-year-old boy.
