Gordon & Zachary now Arnie & Franco

Here are some photos of the boys. They have turned into complete snuggle bugs. Franco [Gordon] has turned into quite the glutton! We had to stop giving them hard food since he was putting on the pounds and the vet recommended just giving them wet food. He’s lost about 2/3 lbs since then. Arnie (Zach) used to hate being picked up, but now he looks forward to his morning pets and snuggles up to my neck. 

Callie (Gidget)

Callie (formerly known as Gidget) has been doing well since coming home in October. Our other cat has not been enthralled with the new addition, but there is plenty of room for both of them and the dog. She’s just as happy to have winter over, spending lots of time checking out the window views. Callie is very active and playful, enjoying her toys whether it’s the laser point or aluminum foil balls. When she is worn out, she enjoys a good lap or snuggle, especially if it means some ear scratches. 

Colbie, Ghost and Brie

Ghost and I thought we might send a quick email back to our extended family at POA. We paused our trip just about as soon as we got started toward our new home.It turned out to be a happy surprise, Petco. Our new parents pushed us around in the cart and we saw many new and beautiful things, also a few stinky dogs. We decided to just keep calm and enjoy the scenery, as the pretty woman seemed to be mostly in charge of what went on. We were almost out the door to the parking lot when the man went back to pick out a tree made of carpet and wood. The shopping cart was already too full and he had to lug it out to the car on his back amidst a series of moans and groans. When we got home, the pretty one cleared a spot in front of the window to make room for the tree. I didn’t realize how smart she was until the big yellow ball in the sky made my fur and the carpet get warm, this morning. I think Ghost likes it very much too. They have a blue plastic doughnut with a ball inside that defies all of our reasoning. Despite hours of trying, we have failed to remove the ball. It goes round and round with both of us swatting it, but as of this writing, the ball remains uncaught. We are happy for the scratching posts of which there are 3. We have used them intermittently to fool the tall ones into believing that their couch is safe from attack. We like the food here and find the water is as good POA. The litter in our pooping box is much softer here and we are happy for that.  We enjoyed watching TV from the couch last night while we sought near continuous petting. I doubt we will ever tire of the petting and we have been lucky to find a good set of petters. They have started calling my sister Brie. We are not sure if the name will stick so no protesting for now. We found our way into the bedroom this morning and climbed up onto the bed. It felt like walking on a cloud. We didn’t spend that much time on the comforter as the pillows are even softer and warmer. I like to see how close I can get my butt to the man’s face. We are happy and like our new home. Tell Martha we are pooping and drinking water and she should not worry about us. We are tired of having our pictures taken but feel that they might slack off eventually. I have a date with the carpet tree and will sign off for now. We both are thankful for having you look after us for these past weeks. We are finally home.  Love, Colbie P.S. Do you know why the new people want to name us both after cheese?

Kesha, now Scout

Kesha is doing very well.  We have renamed her Scout and she jumped right into the family without missing a beat.  She’s been laying in the sun, exploring, sleeping with my son.  She is in heaven. Kesha turned out to be the perfect fit for us.

Salem Eugene

Three years ago today we welcomed this guy into our home. We’re so happy to have him with us. Although he is mischievous we love him anyway!!


Getting Missy was the BEST thing I could have done for Prince, They are a perfect match. He has come out of his shell, he is a different cat altogether!!   I can’t believe it!! He’s so happy now, its unreal. I think he feels a little on top because he was here first, but he is in love with Missy. They play hide and seek, chase each other, its so beautiful. Missy sleeps with me and stays with my mother in the chair and loves to watch the squirrels and birds. She is an absolute perfect cat. Perfect ​.​ She  LOVES LOVES to play.
