Ianto was found with two siblings in a cardboard box in the middle of a grocery store parking lot, where the box could be run over. A friend of mine was there, and asked her husband not to run the box over in case there were rocks or something in it that would hurt their vehicle. She also had him move the box so others wouldn't have their vehicles damaged.
When they opened the box, three tiny identical kittens, not even weaned, were in there. One of them was no longer alive.
Another customer who had come over to see what was going on took Ianto's siblings--she was going to keep the living one, and give the deceased one a dignified resting place. Laurie took Ianto home and syringe fed him until he could eat and drink on his own. Her cat Izzy, however, wanted to destroy him, and Laurie had to find him a new home.
Little did she know, Izzy was not the villain. She could sense evil, and it was in Ianto. Many puncture wounds later, however, I now have a loyal
parasite companion that won't even let me use the bathroom alone. And god forbid I take a bath, because MOM YOU MIGHT DROWN OH NOES.
I wouldn't trade him for anything.
i had a mixed siamese down in fla that adopted me, Mao Tse Tung (mousey tongue :) ) he was a complete nutball and had quite a dose of evil in him, but smart smart smart! he was hit by a car, but man i loved him!

Mousey Tongue..I LIKE that!
Ianto is definitely one of the most interesting personalities I have dealt with. He's very loyal and devoted to me, but he has some issues that took a long time for me to get a handle on (like, he does NOT like to be touched below his ribcage--not his lower back, not his belly, not his rear legs and feet, not his tail; if touched there, he gets VERY angry, even if he was just purring and snuggling moments before). He gets very, very worried if I'm in the shower and he can't see me; he'll cry out until I pull back the curtain and tell him I'm okay. When I take a bath, he sits right next to (and up against, usually) the bathtub the entire time.
I love the little snot :)
