Assistant Director Skinner was born on June 29th, 2009. Abandoned by his mother just days after his birth, Skinner fell in with a rough crowd and spent months roaming the streets of Tacoma with wanton disregard for his own future. He suffered severe tail injuries after narrowly escaping a drive-by shooting at the age of just 4 months. Soon after, he was imprisoned by the Tacoma Humane Society.
Just days before he was marked for execution, Brittany and I rescued him. As he is a marked kitten, we are forced to keep him as an indoor cat.
Brittany has had a soft spot for mangled animals as long as I've known her. And really, who can blame her? She wanted to adopt a 3-legged, 1-eyed dog and name him Tragedy. We eventually reached a compromise and adopted Skinner instead.
