I didn't get my two from shelters but they were rescues. I got Jitzu from a roommate who moved out. She had been largely ignored and semi-abused by a friend of mine (we have since had a chat about 'appropriate behavior with cats...he's better now) and was so nervous. It took her about a year to fully trust me, and she's definitely a one person cat. She tolerates my bf though. My friends think she's psycho, she will actually chase people to attack them, but she loves to cuddle with me. And wow does she have a picky stomach, but i wouldn't trade her for the world and all the work i put into her is worth it for what she gives me back.
her full name is Ninjitzu...boys named her, not my fault. But she IS a ninja..
Isn't she beautiful?
Second is my baby. I got Torri when I was working at a different pet store last summer. This family brought her in saying they had found her on the hill by their house. Watched her for 6 hours and brought her in when it started to get dark. The kids wanted to keep her (duh) but dad was allergic and mum didn't want to deal with a 4-5 week old kitten. They asked if the store would take her, they were full up so I called my bf and begged...I brought her home and we've loved her ever since. She's sweet, playful, and sooo dumb. But we love her to bits. However, if Jitzu is my girl, Torri is definitely a daddy's girl.
Her full name is Torrier (Tor-E-A), and she's adorable.
Torri the day we got her:
And Torri all growed up:
And just for the heck of it this is the baby I'm raising now. She's 4 weeks old now, this was her back when she was with mum.
Cute little Dora.
And Tommy, my semi-feral sweety:
Isn't he striking? If I can't find him a home soon i may have to keep him...he's such a sweety. We'll see what happens
I love my kitties
Wow that's a lot of pics...heh, sorry
