BEAN & BOO
BEAN and BOO (Midnight) have been pure joy since they arrived. They have been very fond of each other from the start.
They play most of the day together and sleep on the bed at night. Thank you so much Fat Kitty City for all you do.
KOALA & AUZZIE
Here are the boyz (KOALA and AUZZIE) on Christmas day.
They are doing very well. Thanks again. I will send more pictures when I have more time, but wanted to share and show that they are very happy and loved.
FREDDIE (Fedora) is doing well ruling the roost. He is most active at night and loves making noise while we try to sleep. He befriends anyone whom will lend a leg to rub against or pet…
I wanted to send you this picture of CHI CHI (now called Toots) and her new sister…who definitely did not like her at first. Now they get a long great. (We rescued Abby from another rescue earlier this year) Toots is a very happy kitty.
TREELEE is such a lover boy and can’t get enough of being held and being on my lap. He’s so quiet; my other cats were talkers. He’s meowed a couple of times but that’s it. He’s quite the charmer and likes to share his love with whoever else is around.
Our first night, he would come and put his paws up on my chest, butt my cheek, kiss me and wait for me to snuggle back and pet him. Then after a little while he’d go over to Don and do the same thing. I feel bad that I have to leave him during the day when I go to work. I’m sure he’s a little lonely after having all kinds of buddies up at your place.
LILLY & SMITTY
Four years ago I lost my beautiful “apple-head” Siamese cat, Tosh. At that time my husband insisted, “I want no more animals in this house.” I still had a friend, though, our neighbor’s calico cat, Gracie. But she disappeared last June. My husband’s position softened and he suggested we might look for a cat after our travels in the fall. I told him, “No hurry. It has to be the right cat. I’ll know when the situation is right.”
A few weeks later I discovered a little black kitten in a combination pet store and animal clinic. He “talked” to me and rubbed against my finger. That afternoon I decided to check out websites of animal shelters. I was stunned by what I saw—so many beautiful cats and kittens needing a loving home, but it was the kitten I saw on the 2nd page that caught my eye. That was Elena (now called Lilly)
Just after we adopted Smitty, the black kitten, the call came about Lilly. When my husband actually agreed to look at a second cat, you could have knocked me over with a wet noodle! Unfortunately, when we brought Lilly home, war broke out. My handsome prince, Smitty, had enjoyed being the supreme ruler of his new universe for two whole days and was royally bent out of shape at this intrusion. He did not want to share his castle with another feline and proceeded to try to banish her from his kingdom. He yowled, hissed, and stalked the beautiful princess, Lilly, relentlessly. (Lilly in turn found safe haven in her new daddy’s lap!) The war raged on for three days, until I found Smitty and Lilly napping together—nose to nose. A couple days later I caught Smitty grooming Lilly, and I knew we’d turned a corner. Never mind that, given Lilly’s long fur, the new “do” Smitty gave her looked like a Mohawk. It’s the thought that counts.
Since then Lily has taught Smitty to play a mean game of hockey, and Smitty, our spokes-cat, has taught Lilly to converse more. So, once again, peace has been restored to the kingdom—well, most of the time, anyway. And the royal couple, along with their human servants, shall live happily ever after. Long live the prince and princess of our castle!
CHLOE, a Chihuahua (90%) and possibly Poodle (10%) mix was found by a friend of Fat Kitty City on her doorstep. After an unsuccessful attempt at reuniting her with her original owner, she was brought to the PetSmart Store on Bidwell for adoption. We heard about her on a Saturday, then brought her home the next day. Though our original plan was to foster her, she quickly bonded with our other three rescued Chihuahuas. It was also love at first sight between her and us.
Since that first meeting she has become an integral part of the family. She frequently plays with Tinkerbell, our other little girl (rescued from Yuba City) and participates in group play with Tink and her mate Lucas (from the Placerville shelter). Old man Rainy (rescued from the Placerville Wal-Mart parking lot in 2006) begrudgingly plays with all of them.
When she is not playing or sleeping in her crate, she can be found cuddling on a lap with Tinkerbell, Rainy on one side and Lucas on the other. Chloe is a cuddler and loves being held. She, Tink and Lucas also love washing human faces. If one doesn’t do a good enough job, the other two step to finish it. Chloe is a welcome addition to our home which she shares with our nine rescued cats.
