This is the first picture I saw of Peaches - on the internet!
|Who could NOT fall in love with this cat?|
National Adopt-a-Shelter MonthThis month we wanted to honor my kitties' previous shelter home, where I had the fortune to encounter Peaches & Paprika!
Marys Kitty Korner, is a sunny no-kill "home-like" shelter for cats where our human met us. We had previously been "rescued from a kill shelter in New York & we ended up in this new place, a big white house with lots of sunny windows & dedicated volunteers. But many other cats with whom to compete!
PEACHES & PAPRIKA'S STORY:So here's how it went: My human fell in love with me, Peaches, on the internet! You saw the picture (above) on "Petfinder." She was immediately smitten with me! Immediately she said to herself:
"I must have that cat!"
|That's me on TOP!|
|Mary's Kitty Korner - where I and Paprika were living|
When my owner first laid eyes on me, I had the best spot in the cat house - a spot on a high window in the sun. However, to tell you the truth, when she walked into the room I was flirting with another customer!
That's MY Cat!
|Flirting and posing on the window for my admirers|
My human was crushed, thinking another customer had scooped me up. She immediately announced, to the shocked onlookers: "Hey that's MY cat!" - even though she'd never met me before!
Mary's Kitty Korner's manager, Miss Lisa, DID tell the other customer that Carol had "first dibs" on me, much to her great relief.
|Sad Paprika--thinking she might get left behind!|
And then there's Paprika...Well here's the deal, I have this sisfur, Paprika, and let me tell you we're a Package deal - ain't going nowhere without my sisfur! That was fine with the human. She WANTED two cats! So she met shy Paprika who was hanging out in another room.
|Paprika is transfixed by "the feather"|
The human, Carol, was not bothered by Paprika's shyness, (I've cautioned Paprika to look more "upbeat" like ME!) She started to play with Paprika & her eyes actually danced!
The Sunny Rooms at Marys Kitty Korner:
There were many neat rooms at Marys Kitty Korner that the human visited - where cats could play and sun themselves. Most have a grand ole time but who wants to live in a dorm?

We state our caseWe decided to "state our case." After all, we did not wanther to get tempted by "other cats!"
For good measure, I tried one more "window maneuver" and Paprika tried to look particularly Beseeching!
|Wouldn't YOU like a playful cat with such PURRsonality?|
|So...how about it? Deal is sealed?|
|Goodbye Marys Kitty Korner...|
thank you for letting us stay here!
The human did not have to think about it long....she opted for BOTH of us....a wise decision! White House: Goodbye.
Check us out below in our "new" home...
Our New DigsHere we've just arrived! The first few hours in our room we were given the "executive suite" - well actually, it was her bathroom, decorated with a plush blue rug, food & water, toys, a cool scratching post and lots of hiding places. Soon we were allowed to explore other rooms!
We did wonder...
|Will we be STAYING here?|
YES, GIRLS, YES!
