Flossie Loving Wales!

On 9th January, we moved from Hertfordshire to Ammanford in South Wales. As you can see, Flossie loves it!
We have the Amman river running along the bottom of our garden. Flossie hasn't read the small print that says cats are not supposed to like water! She has been regularly seen jumping from bolder to bolder along the river's edge and patting the surface of the water.
Probably why she's having a rest here in her favourite plant pot!

A Fresh Look @ the Ladies of Autumn

We have a new look and we sincerely hope that our members will start posting more. For now Chimera and I will share a picture of US.

Here Chimera is with our sister Yin, she is a black panther.

And here I am dancing in the hall. I will be celebrating my Gotcha Day, Sunday. I hope you will come by Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs to help me celebrate. ~Scylla, reporting for The Ladies of Autumn.

Happy Gotcha Day to our Calllie

It's me Callie.  I was found two years ago today at the place where Mom works. I guess I looked like I had been on my own for a while - thin and as they found out later, full of worms! Yuck.  When Mom came out of the building at night, I ran right over to her.  Since it was dark in the parking lot and lots of people coming and going Mom swooped me up and put me in the car.  I knew I was home!

Me two years ago

I had a microchip and Mom was able to track down my adoption agency.  They told Mom that a lady had adopted me in 2007 but I was born in 2006.  Mom found the lady in question after many tries and the lady explained that she had given me up to someone else because her older cat was mean to me.  The lady also told Mom that the friend who adopted  me from her had moved to the West Coast six months ago.  It upset both of them that I may have been on my own for that long. My first Mom still had the mean older cat so I couldn't go back to them. 

I guess three times is the charm for me.  Life has been super fun in every way since I got here.
I love to run around the house - zoom zoom zoom.  I am very affectionate with Mom and Pop and love to be with them all the time even when I am sleeping.  I am finally becoming friends with my new fur brothers and sisters but it took a while.  I am small so I would stay out of their way so I would not cause problems.  Now I know that no one here wants to hurt me so I am slowly coming around. 

We are having a small party today here rather than on our blog on account that our Minnie went to the Rainbow Bridge on Thursday.  Mom wants to leave her post up on our blog for a few days before posting another one.  I can understand that.  We will have a big Day of the Dead bash for me and Snowball later this week.  His Gotcha Day is Nov.2.  So check out our blog Cats of Wildcat Woods and stop by for the party this week.

Mom Turtle Needs a Home ASAP

Many of you probably remember Mom Turtle and her son Tater from Brian's Home. The prospects for Turtle are awfully dim now. Tater got adopted and she didn't. She needs a home soon. Please contact Brian if you can provide a home for her. We just don't understand why the person who adopted Tater wouldn't take his Mom, she is a gorgeous Tortie. Paws crossed she finds a safe home or rescue soon, we would hate for this devoted Mom to be PTS because a home could not be found for her.
