sweet kitties

last nite we had six sweet kitties at petsmart. we like to let them all out of their cages at the same time so they can run around and stretch their little legs (we make sure their bios say they get along with other cats first!). so last nite there was one little girl...


...named 'nubbie' who was SO funny. although her picture doesn't do her justice she is beyond cute. she's all round and pudgy like a little pig and she has no tail, just a little nub - hence the name. her bio said her owner could no longer afford her. she ran around like a wild banshee jumping in everyone else's cages and play fighting with other kitties. the petsmart employee who gave us the key to unlock the cages said someone had put in an application to adopt her that day! i hope she goes to her forever home soon.


then there was 'tim'...


...who unlike 'nubbie' was a complete sloth. his bio said he likes to be held and he was content to stay in the husband's arms pretty much the entire time we were there. he's a strikingly beautiful gray cat with an eraser pink nose.

oh, i so wanted to take all of them home with me, but i know the spca adoption counselors will make sure they go to a good forever home.

Nubbie is so unusual looking. It's so sad they their owner has to give them up but at least they are not keeping them and putting them in danger of not getting medical care or food or something like that. I would love a docile cat that wanted to lay in my arms all the time.

rpm, i too am glad that nubbie's owner turned her in if they weren't able to take care of her. tim is still available if you want a cat now ;-) he was like a rag doll!
