Featured Employee Pet: Kai the Black Cat

by Melissa R. on March 28, 2012

Employees at Drs. Foster & Smith Pet Supplies share their passion for pets by writing stories and experiences about their own pets here on our Pet Blog. Learn more about their pets in our Featured Employee Pet Series.




  • Name: Kai
  • Owner: Melissa & Kevin
  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair – Black
  • Age: 10
  • Birthday: October ?, 2002
  • Weight: 15 lbs (BIG FELLA)


  • My Favorite Treats: Greenies, and bowls of soft food.
  • Favorite Things: The bed.
  • Traits: Kai is pretty laid back. About once a week he gets a little wild, and runs around the house a bit, but then you’ll soon see him snoozing on the bed or couch once again. I think he sleeps 20 out of 24 hours. He changes position, at least. He does however, almost ALWAYS greet me at the door when I come home from work – trying to butt heads with me and wanting to be petted. He also loves some good petting time in when we go to bed at night, or when we get up in the morning.
  • Hobbies: Sleeping.


  • Siblings: Mocca (Border Collie), Cirrhi (Ocicat), Ritter (Ocicat)
  • How I found my home: I was found as a tiny baby kitten on the street! As you can see, I grew up to be a great big kitty though, so my hard start in life didn’t hinder me. I used to be the baby of the family, but nowadays I am the oldest, so I keep those young ‘uns in place!

Kai looks like a very handsome boy. We miss our senior kitties that we had to say goodbye to a few years ago. I wish they could live forever, but then, we wouldn’t have these two feisty new kittens to enjoy. We have two sweet, but wild & crazy sister cats now that we’re enjoying immensely, although I WISH they’d sleep a liitle more often!!! I’d like to win the CatSpa! #PETS = 2!!!
