Annie & Thisbe




Annie came to us from Buddy Dog Shelter in Sudbury, MA. She knew right away she wanted to be "our" cat. She's very social and likes to parade before company, expecting petting and admiration. Before we moved, she made the rounds of our neighborhood, accepting treats and accolades. We were worried that she might be lonesome when we were out of town, so we got Thisbe from a friend's litter. Annie was outraged, and wouldn't look at me for six months. They are still not exactly friends, but they tolerate each other and chase around the house at a sedate pace. Thisbe is shy, and races under the bed when anyone outside the family comes to call. Annie is very attached to my husband and snuggles up to him when he naps or watches TV. Thisbe is more attached to me and sleeps by my feet every night. She loves to sit in the kitchen window and watch birds, chipmunks and squirrels. Both cats are tubby, and a diet of "Atkins for kitties" has only added to their girth. They are both indoor cats now, and live spoiled but happy lives. -Judy C.

Annie does indeed like belly rubs--up to a point. The white tummy is always tempting. In the morning when she is limp with sleep, even Thisbe will allow a belly rub if she's in the mood.
