Is it weird that all our animals have middle names? Simon was the son of our momma kitty and we fell in love with him. I had a cat named Chester who I had for many years and when he passed away Simon was sad, he carried one of my daughters stuffed animals around for weeks until...
Sammy was a rescue kitten. I'm an Apartment Manager ( not a good job when you are an animal lover like me. ) :) One day a man from the city pound came into my office and asked me where a certain apartment was located, I asked him why, he replied "I was called to pick up a momma kitty and her babies." Ugghhh....ripped my heart out. I asked him to please come back by the office before he leaves. He did and there amidst several kittens and his beautiful momma was Sammy...I picked him up out of the box ( wishing I could rescue them all ) and told his momma I would take good care of him. Sammy slept on my lap the rest of the day. As you can see Sammy doesn't want for anything...he's well over his weight limit ( a whopping 20 pounds ) but please don't tell him. We just say he is big boned. :)
We think she is about 8 years old and we've had her for four years. We inherited Molly from my husband's grandparents when they passed. She's a good "guard" dog as you can see. I just took this picture...she loves my purse ( or my house shoes or the laundry basket...lol. )
Our next arrival: Riley Memphis ( I wanted to name him Elvis, can you tell? )
Last but certainly not least: Gracie Jane ( another rescue kitty. )
Gracie found me, actually. I pulled up at work one morning and there she was laying in the middle of the driveway...eeekkk. I said come here kitty, kitty....she stayed with me all day. I called my husband and told him I loved her, it took me 3 days to convince him ( he did buy a bird after all...lol. ) but then she was mine/ours. :) She just fit right in.
With all these animals, a husband and a daughter starting her junior year of high school and a full time job...well, I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. :)
Thank you so much for coming by...stay tuned there's more to come,
P.S. The comment tab is way at the bottom, I do not know why. Please bear with me while I'm under construction. :)
