Super Kitten Quote by Christopher Reeve Christopher Reeve: Actor best known for Superman I-IV, director, producer, and activist for spinal-injury victims and stem cell research, 1952-2004

The cat in question is the appropriately named Clark Kent. He was born with a deformed ribcage, and required many surgeries. Through it all, he maintained the playful, friendly disposition of any kitten. The vets at the shelter were so impressed with his resilience that they put a cast with the Superman logo on his chest. Today, Clark has been adopted and is expected to live a normal cat life. You can find the whole story Here.

I used the Christopher Reeve quote not to diminish Reeve's trials and accomplishments, but to show how the iconography of Superman can represent personal resilience and bravery, no matter what the species. (Though personally I would've named the kitten Tony Stark, and put a shiny red-and-gold cast over him).

Oh, and don't forget that I'll Draw Your Cat.
