Jon decided that Tilly needed a friend today... so we brought home Ellie (Formally Ellen after Ellen Degeneres) She's a stunning chocolate brown kitty with white toes. Just like Tilly, we got her at the SPCA, and they think she is about three years old, but no one really knows for absolute sure. She was not an owner surrender, she was found in an abandoned house, dangerously thin. She's great.

Our count is now up to three dogs and two cats.... and NO MORE for a long while.

I find it funny that three days ago I begged Jon to let me have a kitty.. that particular kitty to be exact... and here we are three days later, and he up and says "Lets go back and get Tilly a friend." out of the blue.

I'll get pictures of her up ASAP. She and Tilly get along great. They were in the same condo at the SPCA, so it was a familur face. (This SPCA has the cats in open rooms, not cages, with towers, beds, etc. they were in the same room)

We literally just got her home a couple hours ago. We haven't tried to feed her yet, but got some canned fish, ground everything, and little chunks of chicken in the sink to give this another go. lol.

Watch out...that is the way it happens.... Next thing you know you will have 4 dogs, 3 cats, and a couple of kids running around :) Life just kinda sneaks up on you before you know it once you start adding critters. We started with a guinea pig and ended up with a house full! Now son and his girlfriend are thinking about moving back in with us with the new granddog so the house will be expanding again.

We all want pictures of these kitties together with the doggies real soon. It's great you got them from a rescue. There are too many cats in need of rescue now.

Alright, as requested, here's some pictures of Ellen (Ellie) our new chocolate brown kitty. SHe looks almost black in these pictures, we have awful lighting, but she is a beautiful chocolate brown. Her "shelter" name was Nestle Coco, but we changed it to Ellen because 1. I LOVE Ellen DeGeneres, and 2. She's a comedian kitty. We call her Ellie though.


oHai!

I have the perfect cat for you at our clinic! She is deaf and a wobbler so she looks like she's ninja-sneaking up on you or prancing all the time and she is the most playful cat on the planet.

Linsey, you're nuts! I know a VERY special Dane here in Colorado just waiting to make a trip out to Nevada :biggrin:
Trust me, if Jon's dad ends up taking Champ to live with him.... which we're thinking will happen... I'll be trying to convince Jon to get another big dog. Right now though, we're maxed out until we buy. I don't think his mom wants THAT many animals in her rental house. Come to think of it.. she doesn't even know about the cats yet.

I say go for it. I know we only had one cat for just three days, but we really like having two. Tilly is Jon's cat (she officially hates me because she has bad gums and I have to rinse her mouth twice a day... it's killed our relationship. lol) and Ellie is my cat, mostly because she has the better temperment between the two. haha.

You've started a whole thing here now. We were taking a walk with Rocky (we've been trying to do that every night since the weather got nice) and a kitty tried to follow us home! It was a beautiful solid grey with big green eyes and it loved to rub on me and even got close enough to let Rocky almost sniff it but then he got real excited and bounced and that was enough for the kitty. I tried to give it a treat but it refused some dried lamb. It may belong to someone and just be roaming but I'll check for it every night and maybe it will come home with me if Rocky doesn't bounce it too much. He knows the command 'No kitty' but he was SOOO excited to see it! I love kitties!

Everyone who owns a cat should have two, IMHO! There is nothing as fun as watching two kitties wrestle, and nothing as sweet as seeing two kitties cuddle and sleep together. Enjoy them!

How sweet! kitties definitely do best with some company, I have a 6 year old and an 11 year old and they still play together.
Not to highjack your thread, but I couldnt resist posting these, theyre so funny sometimes because Chloe(the older one) is very independent and Booger is super needy, once it a while you catch them being nice to each other.




You can tell Boogie is that wild one with those crazed eyes..
