Otto was a girl, which was the first thing we had to explain to people. She had the name of a German Chancellor with the attitude of a princess. Found as a kitten at a gas station in New Mexico coming back to Pennsylvania, she was all black with two tiny white spots near her ears, the first thing people noticed, which we joked were her devil horns.
She had no fear whether chasing our collie around the house or forcing us out of a chair where she wanted to sit. But she would wake us up with kisses and talk to us when we spoke to her.
Due to the errors of a vet, we lost her un-expectantly and had to put her down to stop her suffering. The only thing that got us through the weekend was the thought and possibility of cloning her. We found ViaGen on the internet, left a message Sunday night and received a call from Melain first thing Monday morning. She helped find a vet to obtain samples and her professionalism and empathy has given us hope. Because of ViaGen we know some part of Otto will rule our home again.
