This is Rusty, being held by my friend Barb. Rusty stayed with me for a few weeks, several months ago when he was a tiny kitten. I fell in love with him and came really close to adopting him. He's an awesome cat - very affectionate and loving. See him reaching out in the picture? He's reaching out to me saying how he loves me. Okay not really - it was that feather toy again. But I did hold him and he did seem happy about it. I'll have to settle for that.
This is Athena. I temporarily fostered her at the same time as Rusty. They aren't littermates, but they were put together at the animal control facility where they were turned in as kittens, and they've been in foster care together ever since. Athena is a beautiful fluffy cat that probably needs to be in a home without other cats. She is a bit of a diva. Remember the wet cat contest? That was Athena in the picture. She looks much better when she's dry. She was another one not so happy to see me - I think she remembered the baths I gave her.
KERMIT! My guy. The reason I am a dog person more than a cat person. When I came up to him and said "Hi Kermit!", he didn't ignore me, or go back to sleep, or pretend he didn't know who I was. He got excited, and he showed it! He was as happy to see me as I was to see him. And that made me feel good. I love this dog. I've talked about him several times in the past, and he's always on my mind. I've even asked if I can foster him, as soon as I can make room for him. I just miss him so much. It's nice to know he misses me too.
