Willa’s sister — yet to be named — any ideas??

I love cats. I have always loved cats. I love all animals. However, if I have to choose whether I’m a cat or dog person, I would have to say I am a cat person. Since meeting Jean, I never thought I would be able to have a cat as a pet ever again – he is allergic. And then one day, on a very cold day in February a cat collapsed on our doorstep. We took her in and nursed her back to health. I put her on a raw food diet and lo-and-behold, Jean wasn’t allergic to our dear Sally. We are not exactly sure how old Sally is, but the vet said she is definitely over 10 years old.

Yesterday evening I started out for my walk. I didn’t get very far. A teenaged girl was walking towards me with 2 kittens. I remarked how cute they were. She asked me, “do you want them?” We walked back to my house. I called Jean. He said yes. Now we have 2 more cats.

Just call me “the cat lady”.

**edited to add: Willa is really Will — oops, how could we miss that one. Will’s sister is now named Lille.

  1. Oh my heavens to bits !!!!! they are cute. You would never have been able to turn them down. What does Sally think of the new additions ? I love cats also but I also love dogs. It’s a hard decision to say if I love one more than the other. But it’s OK to love both 🙂

  2. Aww, sweetness : )
    We have two cats, when we went to pick out *one* kitten we just couldn’t separate the two sweet brothers and ended up taking home both of them! Two kittens between three kids… we learned some lessons in sharing those first few weeks : )
