We have had 4 cats in the family
since 1990. Smoky was the first. Ashes lived the longest at
about 20 years, and Crystal lived about 16 or so. The newest cat
in the family is Freddie. We got him in 2012 from the humane
Freddie is the first real snuggly cat we
have adopted. He is very sweet. But apparently he was shot at as
a kitten with shot in is back leg. Thus he is not much of a
jumper, but he does climb. He plays rough with the dogs and is
not afraid of anything.
Smoky was the black cat. You did not seem him
around much, he was afraid of people. The only one he responded to was
Emily. When Emily her own place, she took Smoky with them. Old age
finally caught up with Smoky which was hard for Emily.
Ashes was the gray fuzz ball. She acted like a
princess. My brother was her first attachment. Since he moved out, she
didn't really attach to anyone until she turned 18. Then she started
acting like a cat with Cyn. She lived to a ripe old age of 20.
Finally there is Crystal. She seems to act more
like a dog than a cat at times. Richard and Cyndy are her favorites.
When Richard moved out in 2006, Crystal moved out with him. She passed
away in 2012.
