We welcomed two new family members into our home. A couple of adorable kittens we've named Dot (silver tabby) and Max (black & white fluffy tuxedo). Dot and Max were shelter kittens in desperate need of a new home.
I recently started doing some volunteer work for the Whiskers, Tails and Feral animal shelter. They rescue abandoned cats & dogs in Napa as well as feral cats and try to save adoptable animals who are scheduled to be euthanized at the Napa city run shelters. Our current cat Uschi seemed that she might enjoy some kitty companionship so we started considering our options. We were only going to adopt one more cat or kitten but when we saw Dot and Max we fell in love with them both and we didn't want to separate them. They grew up in a cage together and they were extremely close.
We picked up Dot & Max a few weeks ago and couldn't be happier about our decision. The young furry siblings are incredibly sweet, extremely affectionate and very playful. Dot follows her brother Max around like she's his shadow. One of the many pleasures of finally being able to own our own house is having the ability to share it with animals in need and Andis and I love cats so I'm glad we could give Dot and Max a good home. 3 cats seems to be our limit but we loves all sorts of animals so who knows what the future holds? A fishtank? Anythings possible.
If you happen to live in Northern CA and are thinking about adopting a kitten please consider adopting from Whiskers, Tails and Ferals in Napa. They currently have a LOT of adorable kittens that need homes. All of the kitties have been sweet-natured and loving. For more information please visit the Whiskers, Tails and Ferals Facebook page.
