Grandma's photo album....nostalgia edition!


                                                     "One on on Speed!"

No, we don't do drugs at our house, but this photo kind of makes you wonder, huh? It was taken in 2006 right after Rosie and Katie came home for the first time. We actually just went shopping for one cat, but when we unexpectedly walked in on a "buy one, get one" promotion at the Humane Society, that made it just too easy to say, "Go ahead and add that little freckle-nosed calico to our cart, too!" On the way home, Mary Jo, my cat-shopping-buddy for the day, and I panicked. How would we explain the second cat to dad? Fortunately for us it was early in June, and my daughter wasn't raised by a fool for a mother! She swept triumphantly into the house and declared, "Happy Father's Day!" It was love at first sight between dad and Katie, and Rosie has flown under the radar ever since!


  1. We have 2 black & white kitties too. Stopping by from the WW blog hop, please link up

  2. Oh I just ended up here somehow J and I love the picture!!! 3 cheers for rescue animals!

  3. What a great Father's day story! We got our first cat because, abandoned, he adopted our son who prevailed upon us to take him home.

  4. Be still my heart! Oh...How I love your kitties! We have a buy one get one free situation at our house, too. I went to get one and when I saw the little sad eyed kitten...Well, I couldn't walk away.
    That was seven years ago. I can't imagine life without my Zoey or Abigail. We added one more a few years later and my hubby named him, Schlomo.
    thanks for this super sweet post, my friend.
    Kitty kisses to your little whiskered friends.
