Happy 2nd Birthday!!

Today is Wrigley and Cobalt's second birthday!!! Things have been so hectic that it completely slipped my mind. Thankfully, we got an e-mail from KC reminding us that today was their birthday!! Phew! I can't believe the boys are already two years old. It seems like just yesterday that we were bringing them home from the animal rescue.

I am at work right now so I don't have many pictures but for now, I'll post two that just happen to be on photobucket.

Here is Wrigley.
And Cobalt!

Everyone is doing great! Chris and I just bought our first house last Friday and they are absolutely loving it. We were temporarily in a one bedroom apartment for the last few months so they had no room to run and play so now that they have a whole house they are going crazy!! It's great to have our fun, active kitties back.

Our internet gets hooked up tomorrow and I will try to start posting more often!

Okay I know I hardly ever post anymore so I doubt anyone will even see this. But it is just so freaky I have to share. I'm going to just copy and paste from my personal journal.

Okay, this is so totally freaky!!! Well, I guess not really, but my stomach is in knots just thinking about it. So as you all know last October we adopted Penelope when they were having a pet fair type thing at Petsmart. Well now every time we go to Petsmart I go over to the area where they have the kitties, they usually have about 6-8 cats. (When we got Penelope it was a big event and the shelter brought in TONS more) So anyways, today we went to Petsmart and of course, I had to go look at the cats. So I walked up to the glass and before I even got to the glass, a black kitty in one of the top cages jumped down, ran to the front of it's cage, and let out a huge meow. Of course I had to run in to meet her. Turns out the kitties name was Pammy and she was SO friendly. She was rubbing up against the cage the whole time so I could pet her whole body. The second I'd stop, she'd stick one of her paws out and try to tap me so that I would pet her some more. So cute!!

Anyways, my aunts name is Pam so tonight I called her to tell her we met a super friendly cat with the same name. I decided to go to the animal shelters website to get Pammy's picture so I could e-mail it to my aunt. Though first, I decided to go look at the adopted pets section and look at Penelope. I found her (she was then called City Girl) and read her little blurb. Guess what it said?!

"I am very sweet and friendly. I came to Hart without a mom, by Pammy and her litter welcomed me to the family. We are great together and would be happy to be placed in a home with another kitty or maybe one of my foster brothers or sisters (see Kittens-Pammy's babies)"

So then I found Pammy's page and read her blurb...

"Hi, I am Pammy. I was found wandering the streets of Frederickburg very pregnant. We are pretty sure that my family moved and left me behind. Fortunately for me, Hart brought me in and gave me a safe and comfortable place to have my babies (see Kittens - Pammy's Babies). In return, I agreed to adopt a tiny little stray kitty from Washington DC (see Kitten - City Girl). Now that my mothering days are finished and I'm spayed, I am very eager to have a home and family to call my own. I love attention and petting. I love playtime, too! "

I absoultely can't believe it. Pammy is practically Penelope's mommy!!! It's so crazy. Now I feel all super attached and like I need to find Pammy a good home because she took care of Penelope when she had no one. So Heather....when you move to a place of your own...adopt Pammy!!!! Oh I seriously hope I can find someone to adopt Pammy. We got Penelope nearly 7 months ago, so that means Pammy has been there for quite some time. I hate seeing pets locked up like that. Oh gosh, it's just so heartbreaking.

Cobalt: Today daddy went to work and mommy went to a friends house so we had the whole house to ourselves. We decided to get stoned but unfortunately, we made a HUGE mess in the process. We escaped the mess before daddy got home from work so he had NO idea who made it.

Our lesson - Be careful with the kitty crack.

Mommy and daddies lesson - Do NOT leave a bag of cat nip on the counter when you are not going to be home to look after it.

I got nudged to post, so here I am!! Sorry we haven't been around much lately. The year got off to a stressful start but hopefully it will get better.

I'm going to begin with our precious Wolfie. He was our family cat "growing up". We got him around my sophomore year of high school when our neighbor found him as a stray and couldn't keep him. My dad HATES cats, but my mom and I persisted and he finally let us keep him. Okay, we didn't ask, we just brought him home!! Anyways, on January 31, Wolfie made his journey to the Rainbow Bridge. My dad couldn't find him and searched the entire house. He finally looked in the basement and found him passed away in a back corner. We think he was heartbroken by the death of my mom in July and just couldn't stand being alone. I miss him SO much. He was around 8 or 9 years old.

RIP Wolfie

Secondly, the day after Wolfie died I suffered a miscarriage. Chris and I found out two days after Christmas that I was expecting our first child in early September. However, things didn't progress as planned and we lost our little baby. I'm still in shock over everything, but I know God has something great planned for us, and our time to be parents will come soon enough.

Finally, earlier this month Miss Penelope had her lady bits removed. She was NOT a happy camper and many funny pictures ensued.
Not her most flattering pose, but I think it was HILARIOUS. She was attempting to get at her incision.

Oh, and here are some other pictures of the little lady. Here she is sitting in a funny pose, and you can really see how much shes grown. She's not nearly as big as either of the boys, but when we adopted her they said she would be a tiny cat.

And her Valentines Day dress. She really is darling.

Finally I have our Christmas picture. Thankfully everyone was pretty cooperative and I think we got a pretty decent one.

Sorry again for not posting too much!! We're in Connecticut right now visiting Chris' family but we head back to Virginia tomorrow so I will do my best to get into a regular posting routine! I hope you all are doing well.

Happy Gotcha Day!!

Today is our boys Gotcha Day!!! I can't believe we have had them for a whole year already. Time sure flies.

This photo was taken at their foster home right before we brought them home.

Here are two of my favorite pictures from once we got them. They were so tiny!!

And here they are nearly a year later. They have grown up quite nicely I think. This is Cobalt.

And here is Wrigley.

My New Years Resolution was to post more, and obviously that isn't happening!! We've had some stuff going on, and hopefully sometime in the next 2 weeks I'll be able to say more, and start posting more as well!!
