Happy Birthday, Josey!

But she don't do parties. She does chillin', Josey style.

Many happy returns of the day, pretty lady. I hope your day is filled with love, treats and the twenty three and a half hours sleep you crave. You are a shining light to me, I aspire to immerse myself in a level of slumber on a par with yours.

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.

Lily Le Mew

Lily Le Mew - joined February 2012

Hello!  My name is Lily Le Mew, but you can just call me Lily.  I live with my mommy and daddy in Kaysville, Utah.  My daddy found me at work, after having been living behind a hotel.  Now I have my own home with a big back yard where I am such a good hunter!  I love seafood, cheese, and my favorite toy ever da Bird.  You can read about me and my adventures on my blog at

Happy 2nd Birthday, Miss Elvira!

This refined Lady Of Autumn sure knows how to strike an elegant birthday pose!

And she is not backwards in coming forwards either. She is more than just a great looking feline, she'll have you know. The Mistress of Felinity states, "You can call me Miss Elvira for short, just don't call me late for dinner, treats, a nap, or a snooze!"  We hope you have a great day, little lady. I reckon we could all learn a thing or two from you!

Hello! I'm Purrincess Envelope Q.T. McKitty. I live with my Mem, my bro-fur Remy and Old Smeller the dog by the seaside in Scotland. Mem collected us from the Cat Action Trust and we are very glad she did. My favourite things are my red seahorse, chasing leaves outside and snuggling my Mem. I hates fireworks and oranges. I am very very purrroud to be in The Ladies Of Autumn!
