Our own Little Isis is in a photo contest sponsored by Publix supermarkets. If you could take a minute to vote for her photo by clicking here, we would greatly appreciate it. You don't need to add personal information to vote, you can just vote. The contest prize is a grocery store gift card, and that would get our little girl lots of Blue Bag Only treats, so we would appreciate the help!
Voting goes through Tuesday, October 21st. Thanks!
Seven 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 seven 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 five years since Jack and Bella came into our lives!
Here 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
Diego is so funny. He doesn't mind the vacuum at all. In fact, sometimes you have to put him into another room or out onto the catio so you don't suck up his floofy tail when he comes to say hello to Mr Vaccum. However, if he is out on the catio and a neighbor down the street is weed eating or using a power tool. Diego will come to you and give you that, "uh hey there, there's some scary noise here, so we go inside now, please?" look.
Today is Daphne's 8th Gotcha Day. She and her littermate Chloe came to live with us up in Michigan as tiny kittens, and now that Chloe is gone, Daphne is the grande dame of Purrchance To Dream.
You can read more about Daphne here on her biography page.
We wish her the very best today, and remember our Angel Chloe fondly, and with love.
Thanks to everyone who commented on our post about Chloe the other day.
We greatly appreciate your comments.
Several people remarked on the frame/graphic in the post, and we neglected to say that we'd gotten that from Loonapix, a free photograph graphic site online.
Here's another example:
Again, thanks to everyone who left a comment about remembering our Chloe, it meant a great deal to us.
A year ago, our lovely calico lady Chloe went unexpectedly to the Rainbow Bridge. She is still greatly missed every day, especially by her litter mate Daphne. Life goes on here at Purrchance To Dream, but the reality is that we will always have a calico hole in our hearts, and simply miss our Chloe.
