Over two years ago, my husband and I lost our beloved 18 year old marmalade cat, Sami. We were both heartbroken. He had wandered into the yard 16 years earlier, and decided that we were his humans.

It took me a lot longer, but the time came.

We agreed:female(males are too prone to urinary tract problems).NOT a marmalade(Jim's request)Shorthair

We drove an hour to a wonderful no kill shelter.

And there they were. Brothers;they had been dumped somewhere, and first rescued by a homeless woman. She had nothing, and cared for these babies until bringing them to the shelter. The shelter will not split up bonded cats. The Boys had been there for over a month. We looked at many kitties, but it had to be them.

Male. Marmalade. Well, they are shorthaired.

Every cat I have ever had has been a rescue. I have always felt like the lucky one.
