Isn't that usually the way? I had no intentions of getting a cat (we had Violet and lost our other dog just a few months before). But when I walked into the vet's office for Violet's appt, this little flash of black climbed up the sides of the cage beside me and I was hooked!

It's a hard life being a horse.

All together now - AH-H-H-H-H!

She looks like a good mother. Both of them are beyond sweet!

Can't see it. I get to a site that wants me to sign up for Outlook. I think you will need to download the attachment and then upload it here.

My wife and I are not cat people, I am slightly allergic, and she is much more so - we can't live in a house with cats. That said, we came very close to it the last year we lived in the Bahamas. My wife was down at the dock where a friend launched her boat, and found these two kittens which had apparently been dumped there by someone. One was about 3 months old, and the other one was barely weaned (this according to the vet we took them too immediately).

Being the tender soul she is, Kendra couldn't leave them there, so she managed to get them in the car in a box and brought them home. The young female became Lil One, and the older male was O-O (creatively for Little One and Other One) We set up a cat box, and the little one was tough how to use it by the O-O.

We were leaving on vacation to the US in 4 weeks so there was simply no way logistically that we could keep them, and we were unable to find a home for them. I ended up flying them to Nassau to the no kill shelter there (round trip plus cab was $450 and we gave another $250 donation to the shelter). I felt really bad, but just didn't have a choice. If there had been a little more time, I could have brought them back here and easily found good home for them with my sister and/or my brother, who both have cats. I just prayed that they would find good families, as they were wonderfully loving kittens.

Anyway, here they are:



This is Lil One - she was fascinated by my wife's fuzzy flip-flops:


And O-O had a beautiful face:

Very sweet, Rick.

Ugh....my almost 17 year old kitty, Mr. Blackee Boo, has been a wild and crazy fun loving kitty, but he's been having issues the past couple of days. He has a growth on his back at the base of his tail...I think he's going to have to make a trip to the vet tomorrow.

Sending positive thoughts that it's something unimportant and easy to deal with (and cheap to deal with).
