PROUD NEW PARENTS

This is Calvin, cute isn't he??

I haven't blogged about my cats. We have ( had) three cats: Cooper and Chloe who are black brother and sister cats, collectively referred to as "the black babies" because although five years old they are small, and Calvin an 11 yr. old grey tiger who is also quite small. In the past we have had as many as seven , yeah I know crazy cat woman, but we have never gone out an gotten a cat. They have all found us or our kids. Brett, our youngest son, was singlehandedly responsible for five cats, including the three we have now. Others have found us in various ways and we are just too softhearted. This week hubbie told me that a guy who works for him had this cat hanging around his shed. He was hungry and very friendly and seemed to have been someone's pet. Said guy couldn't keep him because he just adopted a cat which makes his cat total...ONE! After checking with the local shelter and the SPCA it seemed the cat was doomed, so Bob said "I've got a home for him". Tonight he arrived at his new home and the general consensus is that it is a male cat, but he is still hiding under a cupboard in the kitchen with a bowl of food and water, so I can't really tell much from that angle. The " drive thru vet" is coming tomorrow to do bloodwork and check the kitty out and give him shots. From what I can see it is a medium sized tiger cat with very soft, possibly medium length fur and a very loud purr. More as the story develops.


Oh yeah, thanks for listening to me whine and for all your kind comments. I love you all.

Later,
Janet

  2. Janet, you are wonderful for taking the sweet cat in! Keep us informed on how it goes. I am allergic to cats :-(, but I love them just the same.

  3. Love the kitty (love kitties). I have more pictures (and do more posts) of my cats than I do of my children!

    I know what you mean in your previous post about thinking you would always have something to post about. I've slowed down too.

  4. I'm so glad to hear that you took the cat on. Good luck! I wish we could adopt more but Gootz is allergic. Sigh.

  6. Hi Janet. I am a cat lover too. What is it about cats? They just seem to know whose house to turn up at!!All our cats have just come to us one way or another. For the first time in my life I am catless" Our daughter moved out and took the 3 cats with her. Actually it is nice just for awhile to not have cat hairs all over everything.

  7. I love hearing about your kitties. I don't have one now but I used to have a calico cat. She was the queen of the house and used to torment my old dog by jumping out at him from around corners. They were hysterical to watch. I hope he come out soon and lets you love on him.
