Kitty Cats

Today I thought I'd share some pictures and introduce you to my cats...

No, I'm not the crazy-cat-lady, I'm just a sucker for strays. And believe me, all my girls are adopted/rescues. :)

First, Gemini. She's 14, has long, black fur and is my Baby Doll! I've had her since I was 20. I consider her to be my best friend. Recently, she was diagnosed with a hyper thyroid. She was so skinny. The vet recommended medicine (tiny pink pills) twice a day. She seems to be doing better since we started the medicine. 

Next, there's Triniti. She came into my life after I had lost Gemini's sister, Tootsie. So, Triniti is named for being my third cat.

Triniti came from a stray that was fed by the ladies that worked at a pub I waitressed at. I called dibs on her when she was three weeks old. She was one of three, and the only one who was half white and half striped. Now, she's seven years old. She's a big suck! And she's always within arms reach.

Lastly, I have my Chili Pepper. She showed up in my neighbourhood about five years ago. She was a tiny, little tabby, scardy-cat! It took a bit of work to coax her out from under my landlords back porch. But, I finally caught the fuzzy handful and took her in.

This is Gemini's Fav spot! On my lap, snuggled under a blanket.

This is Triniti in her yoga pose "folding cat" :)

Chili is very skittish.
But she's learned to trust me enough to hold her once in a while...

My girls mean the world to me! It may sound silly, but they are my roommates who keep me warm. They are the best company one could ask for. XOXO

Okay, occasionally they hog the bed. lol

She will make a bed anywhere.

She stole this idea from Gemini.. So gorgeous!

Triniti all tucked in.

Gemini is a panther at heart.

Good Morning Ladies! :)

Most nights, Triniti sleeps by my head. Often, she sleeps on my pillow. Chili comes in and out throughout the night and Gemini generally sleeps at my feet for most of the night.

Not many people like the idea of their pets sleeping with them. I honestly find their warmth and purrs to be quite soothing. It all depends on the night. I'm a restless sleeper. But I am single with a queen size bed, so there's plenty of room for snuggles!
