We have two cats that we refer to as “our little furry babies that never will grow up and move away from home”. They’re half brothers, the older one (4 years old) thinks that the sun and the moon moves because my husband tells them so. The smaller one, Digby, loves me.

Loves with a capital OWNS. It so sweet to have something that loves you so much and just crave to be with you all the time. ๐Ÿ™‚ Though this morning we were not on the same page, I was making cupcakes and that meant that I wasn’t paying attention – horrible! Oh the squeaking below me as I was putting on the frosting. As I snapped a photo of one of them he finally had enough and elbowed himself into the picture:

Unless he’s sleeping on my feet, this is pretty much my standard view when I’m at home “Mamma, what are you doing? Look at me!!!”. LOVE HIM.

When we rent the appartment, we heard a cat meowing from the woods behind us. A beautiful, long-haired cat came to us when we called and started rolling on its back and purring while we petted him. He even invited himself into our appartment as we were cleaning. I thought it was funny, but this cat seemed to know its way around a house (wasn’t fearful or stressed at all, he jumped on a chair and started grooming himself). We thought it was a neighbor’s cat so we didn’t pay that much attention. But then, we started seeing it (and hearing it) every day. Our neighbors finally told us this was an errand cat that has been around all summer (we were then late September) and they were fantasizing about killing him because they couldn’t bear to hear him meow every day (poor thing, he was only begging for food). So we started feeding him whenever we saw him. Having 2 other male cats, we didn’t plan on adopting this one, especially since I had moved from a previous appartment with my ex-roomate and her cat, and this cat didn’t like mine and started peeing everywhere ; mine started too, arrg !

So I definitely didn’t want this to happen again. 

One morning, cat was on our balcony as usual. The weather was very cold the night before. So cold, the cat actually had frost in its hairs. I knew my neighbors were right : this cat had no home. And it broke my heart to think he might spend the winter outside and maybe not make it through.

I took a cage, called the cat, brought it to the vet, got a few medications for him. My fiancé prepared a room to quarantine him while I was gone.

Elliott is now our little sunshine. Very ”talkative” cat, very playful, very affectionate and always purring. His integration with my cats went extremely well !

There he is, with his summer lion cut. 

 

All 3 sharing a basket, lol !

This is our rescue Zelda. Zelda is sulking because she was all jazzed to play outside and then discovered it was raining. She’s a total princess, so she repeatedly sighed heavily and plunked her head down dramatically in frustration to tell me she was not happy.

 

She also chews holes in blankets:

@MrsPanda99:  I do! But unfortunately, not on my work computer ๐Ÿ™

@DaneLady:  Aw!!! What cuties! They’re so misunderstood, though, which is sad. We walk our fuzzies and take them pet stores on their leashes so other folks can see they rule. Around Christmas time, they get their pictures with santa just like all the other dogs– and they’re always so popular with the people. I agree… their life span is too short, but we give them awesome lives.

@Mrs. Gremmlin:  Ok, I’m really glad to hear that I’m not the only nutter who leashes ferrets and takes them to see Santa.  Whew.  People thought I was absolutely bonkers.

@lolot: Aw, so cute (love your little blue point)! Hope everything goes well with the toilet training. A tip, if you have one of those covered boxes – try to take off the hood. Kittens sometimes find the swing door very scary. Another problem might be the litter, if they don’t like the smell they might pick another place where they do their business. We’re using clumping pine kitty litter, it’s expensive but it’s the best litter I’ve ever used and it’s flushable + biodegradable.

@BotticelliLove:  HAHAHA. My Rex (hairless cat) acts exactly the same. He sighes and and snorts whenever he’s unhappy with something.

@DaneLady:  haha! The crew at PetSmart remembers them each year. They love the attention. And all little guys deserve to see Santa! Though I will say that they don’t enjoy it quite as much our dog. 

 

 

 

ETA: Holy gigantic pictures… sorry!
