I know I'm a lucky cat. All of us kitties that have loving forever homes have so much to be thankful for. I know that I can take what I have for granted...feel like everything will always be fine.
Of course if you know the cats in my family, you know that's not true. We know a happy life is not a given. We have all known what it's like to not have a home. To have a home and to lose it. Not because of anything we did, but just because bad stuff happens sometimes.
If you knew my family when I was adopted, you'd know that I was ill and I was not neutered. Look at me now...all magnificent. But it wasn't always that way.
Which brings me to what I wanted to meow about today.
Our furriends Emily, Brutus and Marigold found themselves homeless and in a shelter when their mom Rose passed away. Through no fault of their own...they became in danger of losing their own lives.
Because of the wonderful humans behind the cats in the Cat Blogosphere, our feline friends are going to have homes with other members of our amazing cat blogging community. Their story is unfolding as I meow...and their move out of the shelter and to foster...and on to forever homes is going to happen soon. You can read about their story at the Cat Blogsphere.
So now another story...because we are a bit in love with Miss Emily...the lovely lady on the far left of the graphic. See her black and white lovely fur...see her nose spot? Oh how mom has a soft spot for a nose spot.
She's a puddle looking at Emily.
And you know why?
Two of our guardian angels were black and white furred...and the signature nose spot.

We will purr that our furriends have safe travels to their new homes.
