Cabbit is an 8 year old solid white American Shorthair cat. In April 2001, I found him on the side of the road where there were no other cats or houses around. He looked to be about 3 or 4 weeks old (very small.)
I brought him home and he nursed a momma cat who had just gave birth to only one kitten. She took Cabbit in as her own. I kept him and he has been the best cat ever.
He fetches! He carries around a stretchy rubber frog and stares at you until you throw it for him. When he's tired of fetching he hides the frog under a doormat or furniture. He doesn't meow, instead he makes a chirping sound like "aaah aaah".

How and when did you get your pet?
After my previous kitty passed, my husband told me as a cat lover it was my responsibility to go out and give another one a good home. We went to a no kill cat sanctuary and found Jonesy and his brother and after a week of visits, ended up taking home 2 cats. ^_^
What does your pet like to do for fun?
He likes to chase invisible objects, sing songs of his people at 1am, and loves my hair ties as toys.
Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
He is quick to befriend and enjoys sleeping on people. He's a big talker, but loves TV time too. He has an air of regalness about him and he knows it.

Jeremiah is 1 year old and a Black American Shorthair cat. Jerry was a drop-off of sorts. He needed a home, and we had the space.
We decided we wanted a new addition to our family, and we fell in love with these two who were in a foster home together. Since they are brothers, we didn't want to separate them, so we decided to adopt them both when they were about 4 months old. They have provided comfort and laughter to us ever since.
She is one of our little fosters that ended up staying.
Sweet Pea is a 5 year old American Shorthair. He was dumped in the woods near our house, and he found us.

Little Boy is 4 years old and an American Shorthair. He was found orphaned at 2 weeks behind our barn. My husband found 2 little kittens while he was weed whacking.
