To be fair, I need to also put Smoky Cat on here. She's not a sweet cat. She has some serious issues with friendliness and playing well with others. She's checking out the 25 plus turkeys that were in our yard in the fall. One wonders what is going through her head and one never quite knows.

Smoky is also a semi-rescue cat. She was abandoned by her owner and kind of adopted my house. My downstairs neighbor took her in, but then abandoned her when she had kittens. So...she basically came with my house. She is totally of the opinion that she is ruler of this place. How wrong she is!!!!

This is my sweet cat Holly, a rescue cat found at my school behind the holly bushes by Lindy, our principal's sheltie. She's been with with me three years now. She's my baby.
When she was found, she was only about five months old, pregnant and starved. She had the kittens the very first night at my house, but they were so tiny and she was so malnourished, they didn't live.
Holly now is a fat and sassy little girl who enjoys sleeping with me, sleeping by the fire, and chasing her toys across the kitchen floor. She and Smoky do not get along and she spends many an hour hiding for the Smokster.
