Madison was born on May 13, 1996 to a feral momma in our friend's backyard. He was the only kitten that survived. His momma passed away when he was 4 months old. Madison is the only cat I know where we really know his birthday. The rest of us have made up birthdays. He came to live with us about a month after his momma left to be his guardian angel. Her name was Beacon because she had a white tip on the end of her tail.
Madison lives in our workshop because living with us other kitties stresses him out. Probably because he never learned how to play with his litter mates when he was a baby. He didn't have any litter mates to play with. That makes me so sad. He does get to play with my sisters Jonesie, Cecilia and Ginger in our backyard. He likes them just fine as long as he doesn't have to share a litter box with them. Sharing the yard is no big deal.
I only get to visit with him through the door because my momma and I can't get the door to work for us. We can only go out on the deck and only when my mom is hovering over me.
