I would love to see more pictures of everyone's fur babies. I already posted Sam, so here are my other 2.
The first 2 are Ralph. Ralph is a she. I rescued her from under the bus coming home from work 10 yrs. ago. I saw her from my seat when the bus stopped to pick up someone. She was following a woman and
child. When they got on the little girl said "mommy, the kitty", and the mother snapped, "it's not ours".
The driver started to pull away and I yelled, "wait, the kitten!". He growled, "it's under the bus". I got off and looked and luckily she came right to me. I got back on, just waiting for the driver to say anything.
She squirmed and howled all the way home. She was so tiny she still had blue eyes and waddled. She must have been born outside and wandered away from her mother and litter. It must have been a while because she was so skinny. After she ate she looked just like a brown pear.
The second is Patches. We got him almost 3 yrs ago when we went into a pet store for something and heard a kitten crying. I looked around and there he was in a cage. He just kept crying so I asked to hold him. My DH said, "no more cats". Yeah..sure. He was about 3 months old. The saleslady told us that a woman took in a stray and 2 kittens. She kept the mother and 1 kitten and brought the other there.
He was a "talker", which I always wanted. The rest is history. He weighs about 15 lbs. now. Like any little boy, he hates mushy but tolerates my hugging and kissing him. One odd thing he does, whenever he hears one of us pull a tissue out of a box, he starts crying and warbling, almost like he's going to sing.
Whenever he sees DH starting to sneeze, he does the same thing. It tickles us no end. Sometimes we'll pull out a tissue just to hear him "sing". We call him "handsome dude" and he just gives a look as if to say,
" I know".
