Lithium, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lithium
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Cat
Home: New Jersey, USA
   Lithium is special because she once was a completely wild cat. She was born in the woods behind my work site. We discovered her presence when she was about 8 months old. We would leave food for her at the edge of the woods and eventually she began to trust us and started to come closer to our building. It took a couple more months for her to come inside the building. One fine day Lithium ran into our rest room and hid underneath the shower stall, she was screaming loudly. I was very upset because we could not see her. We had to take apart the base of the shower to get to her. When we finally did, to our surprise she had given birth to three kittens. We all enjoyed watching the kittens grow, but we knew we had to find them good homes. I found each kitten a loving home and had Lithium spayed. It took another three years for her to allow me to pick her up. Lithium has been with us now for 9 years and is very comfortable (as you can see in the photo). She is as tame as could be and a very loving cat. Lithium received her name because at our work site we conduct testing on Lithium batteries.
