Calicos say hello

Hello all,

My name is David and I own two medium-long hair calicoes.

This is Chassis:


And this is Kelly:


I got Chassis, when she was 2, in 2009 from a neighbor's son (who was moving in with someone that was allergic to cats). Her name was already Chassis (just spelled different) but since I'm an automotive engineer who works on truck suspensions, the name Chassis fit perfectly. She is very shy and skittish, but is a great companion to me. She's the princess.

In 2011, I adopted Kelly from the local humane shelter. She was 1 at the time (or so they believe, my vet seemed to think she was only 9 months). She almost the opposite of Chassis--loves to socialize, loves to be petted. She's the tomboy! She has never hissed, growled, or swiped (yes, the both have all their claws). I can't say the same about Chassis.

They have never fought, other then to play wrestle.

Hi David! Your girls are beautiful. I went to Purdue in West Lafayette. I have good memories of my time there. Welcome to the forum!

Welcome to the forum, David!

Oh my goodness - your girls are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I love how they're both calicos but have such different coloring from one another. I also love the story of how Chassis got her name's spelling! I have a family of car lovers/drag-racers (and an uncle who's a mechanic) so that one made me chuckle for sure!

Hi there, welcome!

Aww man, I'm so jealous of you with two gorgeous calicos! I am such a nut about them but don't have any... Your two girls are so pretty, and I'm glad to hear they seem to be getting along!
