Our Story: Why we have had so many kittens for adoption, and why we still have so many cats

It all started one day when, shortly after moving into a new neighborhood, our family was riding bicycles around the block.

As we neared our home, we saw a blue van driving at a high rate of speed, and the passenger opened the side door (the driver didn't slow down or stop) and threw a baby kitten into the yard that bordered the road.

Shocked that someone would do that sort of thing, we pedaled over to the frightened kitten, picked her up, and brought her home.

That was several years ago, and Miss Kitty (pictured above) is still with us, happy and healthy.

We found, however, that this new neighborhood had many stray cats who were near starvation and living in the wild.

Somehow the wild cats knew we would feed them, and came to know our yard as the place to feast, have babies, and be loved.

In time, the litters became our kittens, and as they grew we took them to the vet to be neutered and receive full medical check-ups and their shots.

In all, over the past eight or nine years, I believe we've saved, tamed, and raised well over 100 previously homeless kittens and cats. Many were adopted out to loving families who either were friends or neighbors of ours, or through this web site.

We are not emotionally capable of taking any animal to a shelter, so many have became part of our family, and are still with us today.

With the exception of one kitten, scheduled for surgery in October, all of our babies are fixed, have annual shots, monthly flea and worm treatments, and go to the vet if sick or hurt.

To anyone visiting who complains about our cats:
  • They live here. You don't.

  • If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it "fur"niture.)

  • I like my cats a lot better than I like most people.

  • To you, it's a stupid cat. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and you many not understand them, but I understand what they're saying perfectly.
Cats are easier on parents than kids because they:

1. Eat less
2. Don't ask for money all the time
3. Are easier to train
4. Usually come when you call them
5. Never drive your car
6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends
7. Don't smoke or drink
8. Don't worry about having to buy the latest fashions
9. Don't need a gazillion dollars for college, and
10. If they get pregnant, you can sell or give away their children
