Two Cats in Need of a Good Home

Updated on August 25, 2018

Surprise, surprise it was our home, Again

Growing up we always had pets. Cats, dogs, fish, hamsters and mice. Sorry no birds those were all around outside. But as you can tell by my other sites cats always get top billing.

My first and second cats were orange tiger cats. The second was from the local ASPCA. I walked in and there were three cats waiting for adoption. I asked them who wants to come home with me. One answered with a load MEOW! Mom and the staff were both amazed.

Call it genetic. But as you can see my family has a knack of being at the right place and the right time.

To prove this please read on and learn a bit more about the cats in our life.

Diva

With Diva we had gone to a local shelter in town. This we would do almost on a weekly basis. They had cats, dogs, bunnies, other small rodents and even horses. Ms. Diva was the one that drew my daughter in with her cat like charm. (The picture sort of gives that away.)

Anyway it came to June or July and they were having a promotion to help find homes for the cats.

$25.00 and you got...

1) The cat of your choice

2) A bag of food

3) All fees waved - they were up to date on all shots and they were all neutered or spayed. (Bob Barker would be proud)

4) Their first vet visit was also covered.

We had a cat / pet carrier that we took in, paid the cash, filled out the paper work, and sprung the cat from the poke.

For the definition of her name you will need to check out my other pet lens. You will find it at the bottom of this page.

A Sheltered Life

Panther

AKA: Twitten Kitten or Twitty Kitty

Call the authorities we have a cat stuck up in a tree. In this case that is not far off. Panther was only about seven weeks when a friend of ours found him. He brought the kitten over asking if we could watch him while he found a home for him.

Week one no other home.

Week two no other home.

Week three no other home.

Do you see a theme here.

Today Panther is living large. And I do mean large. He is a big cat and because of the abandoned he is affectionate. If you hold your hand out he is right there ready for you to scratch his ears or just pet him all over. If you can't find him downstairs then go check out one of the beds upstairs. You will most likely find him sprawled out on a bed just like this picture.

Two cats are never enough! So here is a bit about other cats that were in our family.

Ms Priss and Buddy

The Mom and son in need of a home

We had a neighbor that was moving to a new home and couldn't take the cats with her. So my wife and I help hang signs to let folks know that these two cats were available.

They were a mother and son pair so it would be better to keep the two together if possible. There were two phone numbers that they could call. Ours and our neighbors. No phones rang for either of us.

The countdown was on. Day after day the time passed and day after day the cats had no new possible home. Finally the moving truck was there and the cats had no home. Suddenly a door opened for the cats to have a new home. Yes folks it was our door. And the cats moved in.

We preferred indoor animals but they were indoor / outdoor cats. This took a bit of getting used to. But we took a queue from my parents and hung a little sign by the door. When they were in the picture was on side A. And when they were out it got flipped over on side B. If we couldn't find them it was easy to track them down. Just look under the pine tree in the neighbors front yard.

In need of a good home

If your neighbor had a pet in need of a home would you help them find a home?

      I'm not sure I could even count all of the cats that have adopted us, especially if I try to include the kittens born in our care! Some of them weren't even needing to be rescued, but they decided they liked our home better than theirs and their owners gave up custody! Love your lens!

      Looks as if you will always have a cat or two around! :-) They know who to come to, don't they?

      @Dressage Husband: True. But when it comes to our pets who isn't.

      You made me laugh at how much of a push over you are! How about a friend leaving you a 1,250lb animal? That happened to us when one of our boarders left us an Irish Draught Sporthorse! She is 7 now and we got her as a 3 year old. Sorry to say I still think Robin The Barn Kitten is cutest, but I am biased a bit! LOL
