Tzillah (pronounced zilla)
(Sarnia, Ontario Canada)
No one wanted the little black kitten. The rest of the litter had all been adopted from this woman by 5 weeks, except the little black one. She was going to kick it outside, so I adopted it.
I always favored orange cats, but rescue comes first. This tiny black kitten would follow me everywhere and trip me, trying to be close, so I thought shadow was a suiting name but it was to overused. I did some research and found tzillah meaning shadow in Hebrew.
Sometimes, when she is particularly playful, I call her godzilla. She still trips you at your feet but the funniest habit she has is she loves to ride on your shoulders like a scarf.
She will jump from the table or couch or any tall surface, right up to my shoulders when I walk by. She likes to use her nails to stablize, so I have to keep them trimmed.
She is the most cuddly and affectionate cat I have ever owned and she is very vocal, trying to talk to you.
