These are the cats that serve as inspiration for their fictional counterparts.
MISFIT – The real life counterpart to Krissy’s house cat. Misfit came into our lives when he was only six weeks old. He was small and sick but very demanding and lovable from the start. He lived a good life for twelve years until he was diagnosed with cancer, and my wife and I eventually had to say goodbye.
TROUBLE – The real life counterpart to the store cat. Trouble is my mom’s cat. He was born underneath the steps to my parents’ old house. He was feral, but it didn’t take long for his curious nature to come out and help him warm up to my dad. He is currently living a happy and spoiled life.
