Came to be with M? Found by M's mom as a tiny kitten who had been sleeping on a car tire in a residential yard in FL. M's mom took the grey ball of fur home to then 13 year old M to bathe and it was love at first sight. Kush and M have been together since.
About the Name: 13 year old M wanted a unique name for her new cat and asked a friend's mom (who was from Russia) how to say "cat" in Russian. The friend's mom told her and the best she remembered it as was sounding like "kush-ka" and so, that's what she named him. (phonetically spelling it) Of course, years later, she found out that it was the word for a female cat, but that's ok, he doesn't need to know that.
And, ironically enough, she found out after naming him "cat" in Russian, that his breed was in fact a Russian Blue. :)
Silly things: M's mom calls Kush "monkey tail" because it's always curled at the end - look in the pics and see for yourself! :)
M used to call Kush "Mr. Investigator" because he had to get into everything. To this day, he has to see, sniff, and be part of everything she does.
thing: Kush is dying from cancer. He's been through two surgeries
already the past year-and-a-half and the tumors keep coming back.
Needless to say, this is tragic and painful news for his mom. Thoughts,
prayers, and other forms of well-wishing are welcomed that he be healthy
as long as possible.
Welcome to Kush-ka's Website!
Kush-ka (or just "Kush" for short) is the way cool cat of M's. He's just so cute and adorable in fact, that she was compelled to create a gallery of photos just about him.
