Spaz Duke Kahanamoku Nandi
We brought him back as a kitten, along with our other cat Gertrude, from Maui, where we'd lived for a year in 1999. We lived in a jungle section of the island and they were both little wild jungle cats.
They had quite a transition moving to the big city. Surprisingly, both adapted quickly and actually seemed happier in the city.
Spaz was always an outdoor cat, and with a robust "spray", we couldn't keep him inside for long. Here in the Mission, he reveled in catching rats and birds, which he always completely ate - except for the random bit. He became a legendary ratter in our neighborhood, and although he was a big, fearsome hunter he was also fuzzy and cute and very personable.
