Arrival Story:
The house had been without cats for awhile. We had had a gerbil and dwarf hamster but somehow that wasn't the same after growing up with a cat and two large dogs. We convinced them it was time for a proper pet and we rescued Torbi, a torbi from the shelter. We wanted another and they found Marco, a tiny tiny kitten, and his brother, who had a large head. I chose the normal-sized-headed kitten! His brother went to our aunt (and looks like his twin to this day, but with a big ol' head).

Marco ate kitten food until he was 1 years old. Then, one of the girls rescued a mangy, starved, ring-wormed kitten from under the porch of some less-responsible distant neighbors, and Marco ate (stole) kitten food until he was 2 years old. Subsequently, the kitten regained his full health but terrorized our older cat, Torbi, and was rehomed. He wasn't like those postcards you see with thirty pound cats or anything, but Buddy grew big upwards as well as sideways. Oh, and having grown up in a house with ten year old girls, he puts up with anything. Mellow Marco.

Cruel Pet Food Boycott:
We came across BUAV, and we want to keep you in the loop about major brands practicing animal cruelty. Nestle, Alpo, Purina, Pedigree, Royal Canin, Hill's, Iams, Eukanuba, and all their labels, like Cesar. Check the list.
