Shadow was adopted from the Hawaiian Humane Center when she was a kitten.  Kinsey is the one who picked her out and they have been best friends ever since.  Shadow is the one who keeps order among the kitties.  She keeps Merlin in line, even though he is much bigger than she is.  Shadow doesn't play much with Merlin or Ko-Ko.  She prefers to play with toys or Kinsey.  One day she got to the top of the bookcase and discovered a plush raven.  They soon became good friends.

                                              Shadow climbs to the top of the books
                                              To be with Raven, one of the rooks.
                                                          From there they look down
                                                           And watch Ko-Ko clown.
                                               They have lots of fun on top of the books.
