I've posted a bio of these two in the intro thread, but no pics there.

So, here goes. Buddy is over a year, probably close to two. His name reflect his personality. He follows me every where. He was born in a high kill shelter and brought to the northern Virgina area through a rescue agency. He contracted an eye infection in the shelter and lost an eye to it. I adopted him six months ago. He is happy and healthy these days and the lack of an eye hasn't slowed him down in the least.



Sassy lived in a feral colony. She had been trapped, fixed and released (judging by her clipped ear). However, she kept wondering into a grocery store in Washington DC, where the rescue group I adopted her from found and caught her. She escaped from one foster home before being placed with a foster who worked with ferals.. Buddy was her foster-brother.

I was in the process of adopting Buddy after my room mate moved out with her three year old cat. Pokey, my lifelong love and companion was still alive at this point. While I was in college, he and I lived with my mom and her two cats. And then there was my roommate's cat. He hadn't been an only cat for a while and I thought it was best that he have a companion. He had health issues and I had to put him down with CRF mid-way through the adoption of Buddy. The first time I meet Buddy, he was brought here to see how he would interact with Pokey.

Pokey's health took a turn for the worse and I made the decision to put him down, but I decided to adopt Buddy anyway. And then I meet his foster sister, Sassy. For a cat who lived most of her life in a feral colony, she had come a long way. I loved her immediately. And with a lot of love and patience, she's come even further, hopefully with more to come. She is the sweetheart, do-no-wrong cat, compared to her "get into everything" brother. I haven't had them 6 months and she is already becoming a lap cat that begs to be picked up.

They are so different, but they love each other. And they are the loves of my life.

Buddy and Sassy are adorable! Sounds like you adopted two cats who reallly needed you and each other.

I'm so sorry about Pokey. :patback

Your cats are beautiful. Do you have a problem with white fur everywhere, and I mean everywhere? That's the problem I with have with Razzle, but I'd put up with it the rest of my life if my Razzle would live as long as I lived. Sorry about Pokey. My cats have CRF too. I know what you mean by them being the loves of your life. My cats are too

Thanks, everyone. Pokey was a great cat and I miss him dearly, but it worked out. I think he was meant to go and Sassy was meant to come into my life.

And Razzle, yes I do! All over my bed, all over my chairs, my clothes...you get the idea. :D This with a bi-weekly brushing, too. I have one chair that is blue that shows both the white and the black and it amazes me each week when I vacuum it how much there is. They both love that chair, so one or the other is always in it. And it shows!

Lovely kitties :) , sorry about Pokey :patback You could always wear white. :wink
Yes, but Sassy's black would show up! :wink

I think I'll start wearing black and white clothes each day and claim it is just the pattern. :)

Hi October! Hope you got through the storms okay. My old roommate lost power and she, her kitty and her boyfriend are staying with me tonight.

I thought I would add some pictures of Pokey. Just because he isn't with me anymore doesn't mean he isn't my kitty. All were taken in his last year. The last pic was taken only a week before he passed.
