We are the proud pet parents of 7 indoor-only felines, D.C., Maggie, Sam, Itty-Bitty-Kitty, Sonny, Sheba,
is a rescue and a mama's boy. He's 10 years old now and hubby and myself adopted him at age 10 weeks. His
eyes are crystal blue and he weighs about 15 pounds. D.C. doesn't really like being held, but does enjoy being a
lap cat. His favorite treat is banana and he also has a powerful sweet tooth. (Though the experts claim that cats can't taste
sweets!) D.C. is precious, beautiful, and very much loved.
This is SONNY. (below)
We rescued him from a vicious dog attack when he was between 6-8 weeks old. (Age determined by veternarian.)
We never found out where he came from, so we decided to give him a forever home. We named this special kitten SONNY (after
the famous boxer, Sonny Liston) because he bats at something with his front paws curled up, resembling boxing gloves. SONNY
is going on 6 years old now and weighs 15 pounds.
is also a rescue. She was the offspring of a feral mother. She was captured and taken to the animal shelter
as a kitten, which is where we found her. She hides from anyone but my hubby and myself. She doesn't really like being held,
in any way, shape or form, but she is affectionate and playful. MAGGIE is tiny at just 7 pounds and we "guesstimate" her age
at about 9-10 years old.
MR. SAMUEL BIGGLESWORTH aka SAM (below),
a Manx, is yet another rescue from our veternarian's office. He was there for over a month, with no one
claiming him or wanting to adopt him. The moment I saw him, I knew that he was supposed to belong to me. SAM came home on
March 11, 2002. He was approximately 8 months old. SAM sleeps on his back and he's very easy-going. On the otherhand, when
he's feeling playful, he can go from 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds! :)
was one more rescue! He had been dropped off at a dumpster. While throwing some garbage away, we heard a
kitten's cry and that was the first time we went "dumpster diving" for a cat! While he was still very young, we had him neutered
and all vaccinations, but it is virtually impossible now to capture him for treatment of any kind. I am the only human who
can touch him and no one has ever seen him, with the exception of my husband. Itty is very affecionate and playful and one
of my favorites of all my cats.
I found EASTER (below)
curled up in a tiny ball in our driveway one early morning. She meowed, but otherwise behaved as though
she didn't feel well. I scooped her up and immediately took her to the vet clinic. Diagnosis: Pregnant.
The vet explained that the reason the kitten didn't feel well was due to the pregnancy because she was so
young. The kittens were aborted, EASTER was spayed, and then she joined our already expanding family of furkids. EASTER came
to us during the holiday, thus her name. She is the one who perhaps means just a little more to me than the others.
She's a mama's cat!
