Cat Lady No. 116 and Cat Lad No. 117...Star Struck

It was in the stars.

When Amy and Paul met at graduate school, they were both earning their degrees in Space Studies. Amy went on to become a librarian by day, and a science fiction writer by night. Paul became a planetary scientist for NASA and when they married, they imagined having two big dogs some day.

But 11 years ago the planets aligned purrfectly when they found a sick little kitten [Casey] in the parking lot of their building.

"We thought we'd take him to the vet and get him fixed right back up and then find him a home, but three months later we were still giving him daily medicine and by then he was ours, of course!

"Then we adopted a sister for him [RaeAnn], then noticed all the ferals in the parking lot and decided to trap a couple of them (for neuter and re-release, but that's not how it worked out, of course!). Then we became known as the neighborhood cat people"..... Agamemnon, Kira, Pixel, Precious, and Jean-Luc thought their new home was just out of this world!

RaeAnn, who is the confirmed mama's girl of the group , hopes you will support your favorite local animal shelter. Her favorite is: Best Friends Animal Society

Thanks for visiting and Live Long and Prosper!
