Neil Gaiman's last adopted kitten grows up to be a real beauty

After loudly and formally declaring that he wasn't taking in anymore cats, Neil Gaiman took in a tiny kitten on 1 September 2005.
Looking at the "sad, rib-thin, starving, scraggly little thing", he melted.

The kitten was "found wailing at the bottom of the drive, all fur and huge ears"

Two days later, he wrote in his journal that he was "holding out on the naming-the-kitty-bit, because once you name them, you're hooked and doomed."
He added...
"I checked several of the how-to-determine-your-kitten's-gender websites, and by carefully comparing the sex-your-kitten diagrams to what the kitten has under its tail, I have come to the conclusion that it's definitely a girl, unless it turns out to be a boy."

What she looked like on 3 September 2005

And this is what she looks like today.
Named Misty by Maddy, Gaiman's youngest daughter

Isn't she a beauty?

Misty's beautiful. She's not really a "mongrel moggy" is she... she looks more like a crossbreed whose previous owners decided to dump? That's my guess. It happened with my half-persian Teddy.

Hi Patches Lady & CatDonna,

Yes, Misty is a stunning beauty. I suspect she could be a Norwegian Forest-mix... sadly dumped, but so fortunately picked up and loved by Gaiman himself.
