The Amazing Smokey Ember (aka SE) and totally my cat.

Baby SE, rescued from a shelter in Lexington KY, such a trooper for the 8 hour drive home, in a truck, with an 8 year old me and an 8 month old puppy.

Cats always find the most interesting places to lay, the more inconvenient for the humans the better!


Simba (who thinks he is King), and totally Mom's cat.

Simba was added to the family as a Valentine's present to Mom.

He is completely Mom's cat, only wants her attention and lap, and has no problem letting her know when she needs to stop what she is doing to give him love.
