My Kitty Kimberly – The Very Beginning

Well Kimberly came to me as a present during Christmas of 1999. I had grown up with kitties but I didn’t have one that was officially labeled as “mine”.  I was the typical child that begged my parents for a pet and made the typical “I promise I’ll take care of it” statement.  This however, was getting me no where!  I kept bringing it up frequently to multiple people how badly I wanted a kitten of my own.  So one of my friends went to our local APL (Animal Protective League) and picked a baby kitty just for me!
