KSee had had dogs before, but as they slowly departed these joyous lives to Doggy Heaven, KSee knew she wanted to get cats next. Her friend told her about Craigslist, which apparently had personals… however she got distracted by all the other good things Craigslist has to offer.
One of the first [Craigslist] posts was for a Torti! My favorite. This post was from Metro Ferals. Better yet! This is karma. So after making application and being approved I drove to Maryland to meet this little girl. The foster mother pointed to a grey tabby and said they were close. Knowing I wanted two, my decision was made. Best part: the adoption fee was $150 each which included all shots & spaying. (July 2007)
Pia (the torti) was named. It means pain in the ass. Because that is what she was, at the time, well to be truthful, she can still be! So the name fits. Its pretty and only you & I know what it means. She does not. (July 2007)
Sissy, does not like to be picked up. She gives me 10 seconds at best. But she is always on the back of the couch just behind my neck. And she is the only one that will sleep on me! Yep, not beside me, not at my head, thank goodness, but on me. She weighs half of Pia but she feels like a ton of bricks when she get on. She will also wash me. If i put my head back on the couch I get a cleaning. I’ll let her do it for a second or so because I know this is love BUT it feels so weird! (July 2007)
[The boys] were born across the street. Their mother is white and quite wild. Their father was a big boy, white & orange, and must have been abandoned as he would come up to me, talk and let me brush him. Big boy introduced his offspring to me. I was, of course, feeding him whenever he stopped by. He would come for days and weeks than be gone for stretches of time. Last fall I started feeding the boys so they could be trapped, neutered and returned. And so they were. Our community was working with Alley Cat Allies.
Zorro, black & white, is the love baby. Of all the cats he loves to be picked up. Turns to jello. And has the biggest purr. You can hear him across the room. I swear he has a motor.
Stanley is still learning. He loves to be brushed. His fur is thick like his fathers… I know he would really do better in a home by himself but he is here and the chances of someone I know just dying to adopt him is slim to none.
What a great family!! Don’t forget to sign the Mister Linky before you go check out KSee’s blog!
