 The people who are spoiling me these days wanted me because I am a son of Tomatina. They knew my mom is a very active cat, and they wanted a new cat that would not be an eat-and-sleep-only type. Boy, what a funny couple they are. I live together with my aunt Tracy and even though she is already a quite active cat they still wanted me. So now I am keeping myself to my part of the deal. I will be active -- more active than they ever had hoped for...

Cino, 10 Months 

Zapucino is my name,

but they call me Cino for short, next to a few other nicknames. I have got this funny name because my color reminded my people of light cappuccino and I also look a bit like my uncle Zappa - who is not my uncle really, (he could not be, not even if he wanted to). I just call him uncle because he is older and lived with me in the same house when I was a cute little kitten.

I can visit the Garden regularly. My people have fenced it properly and they say it is impossible to escape.
After thorough investigation I have to admit this is true, even my Aunt has to agree, be it reluctantly.

The Garden is a Sacred place for cats, a place of changes that we like to watch -- just in case any assistance is needed.
