A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

More Cousins

Mom decided to visit her brother and his family in the Richmond area on her way home from her trip to Virginia Beach. We have a lot of cousins there:

Here's Mom's niece with Rags the dog.
And this is beautiful Sophie, at 2, the youngest member of the family.

This is Chelsea, who, at 13, is the grande dame.

This is Juni-purr. She was rescued as a kitten in June five years ago and she has quite a purr. She wasn't very happy when Toby joined the family a couple of years ago when Grandma went into assisted living. Junie got into a fight with him and bit his ear and now it doesn't stand up any longer.
Toby, 12, was resting in the closet.

Toby could have come to live with us, but we didn't want to share our Mom and Dad with him. He visited us a few times and we didn't get along too well. He used to be Grandpa's favorite cat, but Grandpa died nine years ago. He loves our uncle, Mom's brother, but all those girl kitties are too much for him. He used to have a little dog named Oakley that he loved and a big white cat named Snowflake, but they both died. He liked to sleep next to Oakley, but he always had to wash her fur before he'd put his head against her. They used to like to play chase and run laps around the inside of Grandma's old house.

We're glad that Mom's back home. Dad took care of us while she was gone and was generous with food, like Grr, Midnight, and Cocoa said.

Oh, your cousins must live near us. We're in Richmond too. Too bad we have to get in the PTU (Prisoner... errrrr... poodin... Trandport Unit) to go anywhere, or we could go visit. I don't like that box much at all though. We got your linky up now, sorry we'd left it off. :( If you know of anycat else we missed, please let us know. We don't want to leave anycat out!

That's a great family! Especially the meezer fellow but I guess if he's not so friendly he wouldn't be fun to be around.
