Sandman Book Company has a resident cat named Kitty-Wan Kenobi. He is very social and loves to meet new friends who will allow him to sit in their laps while they read. In many cultures, black cats are considered to be GOOD luck. We have always referred to Kitty-Wan Kenobi as our "good luck charm" and he has certainly done a great job so far!
Kitty-Wan Kenobi is a rescue cat. He was adopted by the Sandman Book Company staff in October 2009 at the Animal Welfare League of Port Charlotte. An educated guess from our veterinarian leads us to believe that he was probably born around January 2009, but we'll never know for sure. We do know he has many years of love and friendship ahead of him.
