Spunky & Ginger



















Spunky (left) is like the "dumb jock" of the family. He's all about his own needs, loves to run and play and eat! He adores being brushed. Physically, he is the biggest and strongest of his siblings but emotionally he is the biggest chicken. He craves attention and yet, is very cautious and shy; and he always has a "worried look" because of his facial markings. He likes people, but tends to disappear when strangers show up. He seeks affection but does not like to be held. He has no interest in people food. Ginger (right) is mostly blind in her left eye due to conjunctivitis as a newborn, but it doesn't seem to bother her. She's a happy, gentle and affectionate cat, but does not like to be held or picked up. Ginger is kind of prissy and will meow to let you know whenever she disapproves of something. She is the nurturer, peace-maker of the group and will lick and groom the others to reassure them and then cuddle up to them. She is curious and playful and likes to keep tabs on everything that's going on. Ginger loves bags and has to investigate them all. She also loves balls and is a gifted soccer player. Their former guardian was moving and not taking her cats along. I took in Spunky, Ginger, and Pandora (siblings) and Puff and Batman. Along with my own eight cats we now have one big furry family. -Malinda (Visit their blog: Clarissa's House of Cats)

My brother and I love each and every one of them, but sometimes 13 can be a lot to handle! If I had huge house with more room I'd take in some more, but as it is I'm at "catpacity"!

YAY! finally somebody with a couple more cats than me! bless you Clarissa for taking on more when you already had a housefull! i'm definately at "catpacity" now myself. (love that word, never heard it before! LOL!)

Spunky and Ginger are both beautiful cats. i loved reading about both of them and look forward to reading about the other members of the household.

Spunky does have that 'worried look' but what beautiful and unique markings!

Ginger is so purrty too and it's so sweet how she nurtures and protects everyone.

thanks for sharing these sweeties with us :)

A very heartwarming story, and Spunky and Ginger sound like wonderful kitties. Kat, I love the Full Monty slideshow. Tocchet & Lemieux feel like celebrities.

Spunky sounds like my BJ. Almost as big as Max, bigger than Stripe yet the coward of the family! He jumps and runs at every single thing. He's also only ever affectionate when it's food time. lol!
