The other cat had been at the shelter for over 220 days...and the shelter had a record that indicated that she had been abandoned twice.
My philosophy about adopting an animal, is that when you do so...it is a lifetime commitment.
When I stepped up to the plate to provide each of them a forever loving home, the comment I frequently heard was "these two cats have hit the jackpot." After two weeks of living with them, I can honestly say that although that comment may be true, I am the one that has REALLY hit the jackpot for they have filled my home with laughter and love.
I've named them Leona and big Lou Lou. big Lou Lou is a little chubette but adorable. And she has responded to finally have a home with so much love that I am overwhelmed. The picture below is of her relaxing today.
More stories and pictures of each of them to follow.
