The Beasts of Cedar Street

Wyatt, he looks so sweet and well behaved, doesn't he? Believe me, this is not how he is all the time. Not even close. A frequent refrain around here is, "Boy, it's a good thing you're cute!"

Grace came with The Girl Friend. She is a regal, loving feline who is the queen of the house.

Atticus you have already been introduced to in a previous post. His nickname is Stitch, as in "Lilo & Stitch". One moment he is the sweetest thing, the next he is in attack mode. He was very sick when we took him in as a foster and we really didn't think he would make it but his is growing into a beautiful cat.

Joia is our mama kitty. She arrived with her daughter, Jewels, and orphaned Gemma, both of whom nursed from her. Joia has some of the most striking face marking I have ever seen.

Gemma is our gray manx, bunny girl is a nickname. She has the greatest personality, very sweet and independent. She stole my heart so fast that it blew me away.

Elliott stole my heart almost the minute we brought him in to foster. He is the most elegant looking cat with his black and white fur. He has one of the best personalities ever!

As you can see we fostered animals and though you wouldn't know it from the crew above we didn't adopt every animal we fostered.

We didn't keep: Jewels (Joia's daughter), Orion, Calliope, Shenoa, Clown, Carson, Reno, Nevada or Laylu. Henri had a home though we were tempted to steal him. Trying to think, was there anyone else... There were two kittens who died also - Larissa and Robin.

We planned on adopting a puppy, which is how we got Wyatt -he was the only planned child.

What a lovely bunch of beasts!

And THANK YOU both for offering a foster home to needy critters. They sure need every one they can get.

They're all gorgeous, but I have to say that Wyatt isn't fooling me. That face says trouble with a capital TROUB. :)
