My Babies

I guess that I've not mentioned anything about those two beautiful tuxedo cats on my home page.  Well, on the left is GirlCat and the cat on the right is BoyCat.  They are siblings. When that picture was taken they were around 3 1/2 years old.  I had just taken them into my home.  An unlucky couple decided that they didn't want to take them from their apartment to their new home.  I had wanted to adopt 'a' cat, but when the opportunity came to take in two, I couldn't let them go homeless.  Well, today, they are over 18 years old.  They are my baby kitties.  They look the same now except that as they age they have gotten thinner.  But, the Vet says that with age cats lose muscle mass.  They both have some illnesses that need medications administered at different times of the day.  Somehow they have survived and my husband and I love them dearly.  It isn't easy raising elderly cats.  They rule our house. Their schedules determine our lives.  They are vocal and moody and tell us how they feel.  We take their lead and follow them.  They are surely pushie little kitties. LOL  But until it is their time to pass on, we will treasure the unconditional love they offer us, and will cater to their every need.
