Lassie was trapped as a feral kitten at the same place in Ladner where we got Kenny.

She's tamed up over time, so that when she joined the crowd of front courtyard cats who greeted me when I arrived at the sanctuary this evening, it was hard to believe she'd ever been wild. She was happy to visit with me and receive any rubs on offer, to the point that she was hard to photograph because her efforts to stay within easy stroking distance made for a lot of awkward camera angles and out of focus shots. 

Lassie's hyperthyroid, which makes her a bit on the skinny side. Her most obvious distinguishing feature, though, would have to be her odd coloured left eye. It makes it easy to find her among other tabbies in the front courtyard.
