Meet Samson... an extra large, strikingly handsome hunk of tabby cat.
He's the confident and charismatic leader of the new pack.
Samson's amazing markings from behind...
Told you he's a handsome devil.
Ralphy is Samson's new partner in crime.
His great big round eyes make him look innocent.
Looks can be deceiving.
Lila is the lady of the group...
Tabby and white, she's a pure delight
(Except to the boys whom she merely tolerates)
A 4th member of the crew is beautiful Lady Sadie.
A six-year-old black cat who is calm, solid, and a bit camera-shy.
If you check back later, I'll insert one here by the end of the weekend.
And then there's this charming young lady...
A gorgeous young cat (or older kitten)
Skinny beyond respectability and dirty beyond belief.
She was supposed to go home with Paula but...
The mama cat and four adorable kittens I pulled for Teeny Tiny Tabby Town (I know... I was supposed to be going on a break after the boys moved out) tested positive for FIV... Not a death sentence or a reason not to bring them into foster, but our vet decided it would be best for them not to live with me. Abby's chronic upper respiratory and upcoming surgery puts both her and Mama at slight risk, so Mama and the babies moved in with Paula instead. She has a room just for them and no one sick at the moment, so...
Our dear sweet girl moved in to the front room.
Cruz and Lincoln are thrilled beyond measure to have been sprung on their last night here. Unless I'm going into the foster room, and then they want inside ;-)
Paula currently has this young gentleman in residence.
He was pulled out a snowdrift,
freezing and half-starved, shortly after Christmas.
His name is Frosty.
Frosty is going to adoption hours tomorrow.
If he doesn't find his forever home,
he will be coming home with me to keep our sweet girl company.
Which brings me back to our little girl...
What shall we name her?
Mostly white, purrs non-stop, eyes of gorgeous glowing green
(a green that's not picked up in the photos yet)
If she ends up here with Frosty, perhaps we'll want to give her a winter name?
Although I don't promise to take them ;-)
I meant to mention how amazing it was that right before our arrival, representatives of the Michigan Humane Society (who were also frightfully low stocked) took 20 cats from county to their no-kill shelter. Their 20 being gone made it a bit easier and less heartbreaking when making decisions... although I do wish we could have taken them all. Their 20 plus our 10 means that 30 cats were sprung today (in addition to the two that were being adopted while we were there, so 32!)
