I love threads like these!
Vader was adopted from a shelter in IL. He’s a giant, black tuxedo siamese mix. He apparently had been returned a few times for being a jerk to his adoptive families. He came home, decided he liked it there and he’s been my snuggly lap cat ever since. Total momma’s boy though – he’s an unholy nightmare at the vet, and we’ve been fired as clients once, and I’ve been asked if he’s a trapped feral more times than I can count.
Tae was adopted from the Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue in Kenosha (psst! If you’re in Wisconsin and looking to adopt a cat, they’re really awesome people!) He’s a snowshoe siamese, and was found because a bunch of ‘kids’ were tormenting him. Fortunately, the rescue picked him out of the shelter, and our friends (who foster for the rescue) had him. My fiance spent hours in their foster room coaxing this cat to eat, and was hand feeding him individual kibbles. Obviously, it was fate, and he came home with us after he was vet cleared and neutered.
After an initial 24 hour hiding period, Tae attached himself to Vader, and they’ve been inseparable ever since. They eat together, sleep piled on top of each other and play all day. The downside is they’ve taught each other all their naughty habits! So now when they’re at the vet together, Tae hides behind Vader and acts like such a tough guy.
Here’s Vader (excuse the mess, he decided I didn’t need to go through the mail after all):
And Tae, looking like a sir:
