Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty

This is Jet and Kitty.

They are NOT best friends.  They get along OK.

I guess their relationship is kinda like John and Emily's......very love/hate.


Kitty is a Diva.  
This is her typical (un)happy expression.

This is Jet.

He's your typical fun loving guy.  He's a great cat.


This is a picture of them hanging out in our utility room in the basement.

Notice anything 'extra' in the picture???
Nah, not the paint cans in the background!!!
Look closer.

Oh, look!!  One kitty, two kitties,....

three kitties!!

Our family has expanded.

This is Bella.
She is Kitty's twin in looks.

She's a two year old cat that a friend was trying to place in a good home.
Bella's former owner had health troubles and she had to give up her cat and two dogs.  My friend fosters animals and took in the cat until she could find a permanent home for her. For some reason she thought of us.

When she first emailed me about the cat, I flat refused.  I told her the zoo was at capacity and that I wasn't looking for any new pets.  The stinker emailed me a picture of Bella anyway.  When I saw her, I was smitten.  She's like having a clone of Kitty, only better.  She's got a great, sweet personality.  The kids love her.

I've been waiting to see if any of the animals had issues getting along.  We've been three weeks now and all seems to be well among the clan so tonight I am officially declaring that we are a household of three cats.....

and two dogs,

and two hamsters,

and a rabbit,

and four kids,

and a crab,

and a frog,

and several fish,

and too many snails to count......

but who's counting, right??

Welcome to our humble home, Bella.

Welcome to the zoo.



Look how much these two look alike!!  I can't tell them apart most of the time.


It's like having twins....only with fur!!

  1. Are Kitty and Bella "Russian Blue" cats??? There was a guy who drove from New York City to Fairfield, Wayne Co. IL to adopt a Russian Blue cat from the humane society last weekend!!! Sixteen hours each way. He and his wife were from Russia.
