We never think about becoming a three cat household… two is quite enough, thank you. Yet somehow, we always end up with three cats sharing our domicile, doing all those feline things that can make you laugh or tear your hair out, depending on the mischief. Most of the time, that third cat seems to find us rather than we finding them.
In March of 2009, we had been a two cat household since our elderly tabby Thumper had passed away about a year and a half previously. I’m going to stop here and say that this next part is rather out of character for me and will probably sound a little flaky, but it is what it is.
Brenda was rescued from euthanasia by Eva from Brooklyn, New York. The little one is 2 months young, a lovely girl who absolutely loves life. She was brought to Eva’s rescue group along with her sister Toni. Little Brenda loves to play and adores all the attention she can get. She is a sweet little thing that will bring a lot of fun and love to her forever loving home.
Nanako was brought into her foster home and was given a comfortable tent shaped bed where she immediately took refuge in. She stayed in the bed for a little while while getting used to the new scents in the house.
She did not want to come out of the bed for the first couple days. She ate by the bed and only came out to use the litter box. Every time she finished her food (mixed with medicine), she became happier and even started purring. Very soon she gained a lot more strength and some weight.
The day we got Neko was on my 32nd birthday. I came across a local ad looking for good homes for kittens accompanied with a picture of a black, innocent eyed, fluff ball of a kitten looking up at me. It was love at first sight. I contacted a flustered owner. She told me her now neutered house cat had escaped and had come home with a surprise for her and that her house was now chaos with young children and cute kittens.
