Update: MoMo is home from the Vet (what wonderful news) but she did have a tumor in her mouth that extended into her esophagus and still needs lots of healing purrs. We are sending lots of pawsitive thoughts that the tumor is benign and MoMo will be with us for a long time to come.

|Gracie - joined March 2012|
As soon as we went into the room where Gracie was at the Animal Shelter, she came out from under something and started meowing at us and rubbing against our ankles. We picked her up, sat on a bench, and put her on our laps, where she started purring and rubbing against us. We knew we had found our kitty.
"Because their sense of security is linked to their territorial instinct, cats make mental maps of their personal space. It may take a cat cartographer as long as six months before he feels he can settle down comfortably in a new home." (365 Cats calendar). I am sure that is true of many cats, but it was not true of Gracie. As soon as we let hour out of the carrier, she happily went exploring. She seemed thrilled to be in her new home. Or, maybe she was thrilled to be home again.
When we are cutting or preparing raw vegetables on the kitchen counter, Gracie nearly always comes to us and begs for some of what we are preparing. However, if we do give her something (harmless), such as celery, she never eats it. Gracie does like to lick the insides of our breakfast cereal bowls (as long as we are using Gracie-approved bowls) when we are done with them.
Gracie often likes to dip her paw in her water bowl and lick the water off her paw. In addition, she will often play in her water bowl, splashing water out. When she does this, she often splashes out so much water that we moved her water bowl into the bathtub. This is not a problem for her, because she can easily get into the bathtub!
Gracie's name comes from three sources: A. Gracie Allen (the wife of George Burns), B. a nice little shop dog Ron met in an antique shop in Lakeland, Florida, C. Ron's mother's middle name, Grace. She also has the nickname, Little Miss Thunder Paws as she is speedy on those little legs.

|Samantha - joined February 2012|
Hi everyone, my name is Samantha. I was a six week old kitten on life support when my meow ma found me at her vet’s office. A human had thrown me into a trash can. I was so cute and helpless that she adopted me on the spot and I went to live with her and my two sisters Lily and Charlotte. You should know that I am a very serious cat with a big responsibility. I am a watch cat. In fact, at my house I am known as Sam the Watcher, because I am on guard constantly against threats, real and perceived to my territory and my possessions. Chipmunks, birds, dogs, people no matter, trespassing in not allowed on my watch and heaven forbid if you touch any of my things without permission. Don’t get the wrong idea, I am a lovely purrson and I hope you will come by for a visit real soon. Just remember when you do, you can look but don’t touch anything… please. It makes me twitch.

|Tulula - joined January 2012|
But my dark days did not last long as a family friend who always loved me found out that I was in a shelter and came rushing to my rescue.
21/01/2011 is the day I came to live in my new forever home with my new mumsy that loves me so very much she said that her heart is bursting with love for me. I am still a little scared of my new environment but at the same time my curious nature makes it all equally as exciting.
My new mumsy also got me a twitter @tulula6 but we have to share her Facebook page :D
I am happy once again and feel very safe.... ♥

|Jazz - joined January 2012|
Humum types collectively for myself & The worm on twitter. We love our anipals and were so excited to join the #wlf & get our beret. Finally The Ladies of Autumn is something I can have for myself, as The Worm is currently no lady!
The staff are slowly realizing my needs, I have a lovely new condo,with caves for me, separated from perches for The Worm, finally I am being fed real game, though they leave that dried stuff out too, just cause it says science. I like to sleep between humum & dadstaff with TheWorm banished, which dada staff prefers too. Once The Worm can be contained, cause she has no self-control, I'll be out on one of the three balconies sunning myself in time for winter. For now I shall enjoy the moderated in-door temps, soft furnishings & food, while tolerating the bipeds adoration.
I introduce myself to you - Jazz, Jazzmina, Jazzy, Pretty Girl

|Twinky - joined January 2012|
I am 7 yrs old and 4 yrs ago I was rescued from the RSPCA after I was hit by a car and broke both my back legs.
I live with my mum, dad and sister Mia in the lap of luxury. I expect and demand the highest level of affection and care and cannot be expected to manage on anything less than 21 hours of sleep a day.
I love my home and my family. But I am a creature of habit and will not accept any form of intruder within the grounds of the family estate. I have a busy schedule so I expect dinner times to be prompt. X
