Cricket and her 2 brothers were dropped off at the vet I worked at when they were 3 days old, so my coworkers and I took turns each night bottle-feeding them. My older cat Merlin was a very good “daddy” and, since I was looking for a playmate for him, I decided to keep one of the babies.One of the boys didn’t survive long enough, and the other one had a serious alpha-male issue with Merlin, so I kept the girl.
She’s very much a mommy’s girl who loves to cuddle and lick my hand and hates when I’m not at home. Her favorite non-cuddle pastime is to toss small hair clips around the bathtub (making as much noise as possible) or take an afternoon nap in the garden.

This is Gracie Anne! She was adopted from an Oklahoma farm. Gracie Anne is a sweet and adorable calico kitty that just isn’t big enough yet to reach the kitty food!

Shaka is a 12-1/2 year old Lilac Point Snowshoe Siamese. He’s from a litter of 9 and his papa was almost pure white! His name came from his VERY long pedigree although he’s neutered so he won’t pass it on. He’s a wonderful hunter and brings mousies to mom from time to time – and even an occasional fruit bat!

Fiero and Ashton
Fiero is a Siamese who’s always looking out for his brothers. Ashton is a Sphynx who’s always looking for a good snuggle from one of his furrier brothers.
As Fiero says “brothers share everything, even fur.”
