About My Cats

My Cats

1. Spencer, I call him, Mr. Super Pouffy, for obvious reasons. 2. Gracie, blue-grey fluffy scardy-cat whose nickname is, Bubbles because she drools little bubbles of saliva...yeah..cute....3. Gracie's daughter, Petunia. Blue-grey shorthair who is prone to over-reacting to everything and peeing all over the house. Fun! 4. & 5. Nick and Nora, brother and sister, white and ginger shorthairs. Very BIG cats, though Nicky just lost a few pounds! Yay Nicky! He is still a BIG boy! Very sweet! 6, 7, 8-The formerlly feral foster fiends. Three short-haired black cats. Each with a spot of white on their belly or chest. They are all available for adoption! Boo-Boo, Sophie and Cricket, 2 boys, 1 girl.

Update: Boo-Boo and Sophie were adopted together and now live with two big dogs and one very nice lady in an old farmhouse in western CT.

Downdate: My Mother passed away in 2006 so I adopted her cat, Bob Dole. Bob was never vetted regularly and ended up being diagnosed with FIV. After having 6 teeth removed and lots of further Vet care, Bob is doing well and has become a cherished member of the family. His new buddy, Nora, is his favorite feline snuggle-buddy.

2010: Foster Cat FAIL! Cat #8: I adopted one of my foster kittens. His name is Blitzen and he was part of Santa's Team rescue from Georgia. Blitzen is a much beloved member of our family.

2012: On Sept 3, 2011, Bob Dole passed away due to complications from lymphoma, FIV and a type of hepatic cancer. Bob left a permanent paw print on my heart. He is very much missed. I'm grappling with possibly having another foster fail with the DOOD, but we will see how that goes.
