Artemis is a shy black longhair who loves friend-to-ferals Jet. She's not so sure about people, though. Here was her response to my attempt to get anything but a distant photo of her:
Artemis was one of a few cats trapped at Richmond Sushi in 2006. Others were Twilight and Lillix. Apparently, all three came to us with different names: Artemis was Tootsoya, Twilight was Rocomi, and Lillix was Wasabi. The original names didn't really stick to these three feral girls running around the back pens, and so they came to have the names we know them by today.
Lillix was brought inside and tamed early on, and Twilight has recently started to realize that she likes people even when she's not in a cage, but Artemis seems a bit more comfortable sticking to her suspicions that humans must be up to no good and are best stared at from a height.
