Who we are

The first time ever I saw your face

I was going through old emails and found these wonderful first pictures of some of our beloved cats before they came to live with us.

Ernie was one of three abandoned cats found outside in Scarborough two Februaries ago.  The woman who found them was considering keeping Ernie but thankfully she didn't.  Ernie is such a delight, the last few mornings he has been getting under the covers and snuggling with me.

Ernie before he was Ernie 
And this is a picture of baby Baxter before we met him ten years ago.   He was at a vet who did adoptions and as soon as we saw that face we loved him.  He developed a prolapsed anus before we were supposed to bring him home but we told them it didn't matter what happened we still wanted him.  Thankfully it healed up and he's been a lovely boy, he's now our second oldest.
Baby Baxter
Who can forget Blinky, he was originally named Pirate by his first foster.  He was turned into a vet with a ruptured eyeball but he manages just fine with one eye.

I hate winter but the best part of it is staying in and getting to spend lots of time with my babies.

Updates: Jake the cat rescued from Hamilton a few weeks ago was adopted, he had to have a toe amputated due to an infection, poor cat was outside for months.  Jet is still at the vet, hope he can head back soon.  Lily seems to have a dental issue so I will be trapping her today and trying to get the unneutered male too.  Two kittens spayed, going from Susan's to Joanne's, Siam going to a TCR adoptathon, the Siameezer going to THS, a cat going to the StreetCats clinic, feeding, lots of catsitting clients, the days are a blur!

I woke up this morning with only one cat on the bed!  Steve had closed the bedroom door, I slept well but hated waking up not covered in cats.
