In a Family Way


The Tabby Cat Club is having a Meet the Family Day. My “immediate” family are in the photo above. Sadly, as you can see, I’m the only living, breathing cat. Beside me are Plush Autumn, HHGutt and Plush Nicky. Cod have pity on me.

Instead of focusing on the stuffies, I thought I’d spotlight my fur cousins cos we’re a cat-loving family. OK, we’re a pet-loving family. TW’s Uncle Don and Aunt Amy loved animals and they shared that love with my Aunts Melinda and Karen. In turn, Aunt Karen has shared that love with her children. When Uncle Don passed in 2010, he requested his friends to donate to the West Milford, NJ Animal Rescue in his memory.

Aunt Melinda’s fur children (above).

Aunt Amy’s Meena and two of Aunt Karen’s fur children.

Like myself, all of my fur cousins are shelter animals. I’m impressed that Cousin BB is a real live Norwegian Forest Cat! Doesn’t he look like Rumblepurr? Cousin Selina went OTRB in January and is sorely missed.

Aunt Karen has two other cats but I really don’t know them. There is a black and white tuxedo named Mr. Higgens and a Tabico girlcat named Sophie, who I wish I knew better. Besides her own fur children, she fosters cats cos she’s a volunteer for Brookes Legacy Animal Rescue. Located in Naples, FL, Brookes Legacy is all about giving animals on death row a second chance. Since they don’t have an actual shelter, they rely on foster homes. The more foster homes, the more cats and dogs they can pardon from the kill (non)shelters. Give them a Like on Facebook cos they do good work.

Nice to meet all of your family CK. Wow, I didn't realize you had such a big one. I'm afraid it's just me, unless you count my human sisfur's two kitties, but I've featured them in my blog many times when they came to visit me.

What a big and awesome family you have, CK! We think it is so cool that you all love animals so much, and that you and your cousins are adopted from shelters (we are, too). :)

We are sorry that Selina had to go to the Bridge. Sending you purrs and hugs.

I want to thank everyone for their condolences on my sister Selina and all the nice tings you said about mi familia. XOXO, Fluffbomb

Katie and Glogirly said...

You've got a wonderful family, CK. ...and you're right! BB totally looks like Rumbles. Those Norwegians are very handsome!

Waffles tried to join the Tabby Cats, but we think his application was lost. I was hoping with all the tabby activities he might forget about bothering me for once. ; )

Very sorry about Selina.
You have a big lovely family, CK. And I love that everyone supports shelters and less fortunate animals!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Nice to meet the Fam, CK. I love my cousins too--best from a distance however.

Guess what? I spoke so sternly to the Human that she actually *did* go to the Post Office this afternoon and mail your prize! I can't WAIT till it arrives (but the Human was too cheap to overnight it, so you'll have a be patient for a few days. Anticipation is half the fun....right? Yeah, I don't think so either. Gimme my stuff! is my motto.

Kitties Blue said...

Thanks for introducing us to all your cousins. You have a very large family. At home, having only stuffies for fursibs is a good thing. They can't steal your food! Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
