Eight years ago today, Bessie and I found a half-starved, flea-ridden little black imp in the alley behind the building where I lived in Michigan.
Bessie named her Isis and frankly, I thought that Bessie was going to be the one to adopt her. But she stayed with me, and now I can't imagine life without this opinionated, intelligent, independent, finicky feline.
But eight years? Where did the time go? Little Isis is still the size of a half-grown housecat, yet what she lacks in body size she makes up for in cunning brain power!
One of the best parts of having Little Isis in my life is the special relationship she has with Eyad, who The Purries call iDaddy. She and her iDaddy have a special bond, and she loves her SMACKIES from him! The two of them can do SMACKIES for hours, and Isis just purrs and purrs.
She comes to me to have her head scratches, but she loves her some SMACKIES from her iDaddy.
To celebrate her Gotcha Day, Isis is getting extra treats.
But unlike the rest of The Purries, she doesn't care for Temptations.
She wants only Friskies Beachside Crunch, which she calls BLUE BAG ONLY.
Hard to believe it's been six years since Jack and Bella came into our lives!
Below are their first pictures, just to remind us how durn cute they were!
Here's the post introducing Bella, and here's the one introducing Jack.
Did you know that Jack's full name is Captain Jack Sparrow, and Bella is named for Bellatrix LeStrange?
Two great fictional characters, for two great CHARACTERS!
Extra NIP and TEMPTATIONS for everyone today, as we celebrate the day that these two rascals found their forever home! Can't imagine our lives without them now. ♥
NTM & iDaddy
Hello! It's my purrthday today! Can you believe I'm eight years old?
Still have the body of a six month old minx, though - there's something to be said about being LITTLE!
For those of you who don't know all about me, you can read more on my biography page here on the blog. And don't forget, you can always follow me on my Facebook page, too! I have to admit, my Dad updates my Facebook much more than he does our blog, anymore. Silly humans.
Happy Purrthday to me!
Meow for now,
