Rusty and Raspy

10 Apr


These two kitties (adopted by Cindy and her family),  and their brothers, Kittery and LaPaz (adopted by Amy and her husband), were rescued during a ferocious rain storm in August 2009 from a backyard in Overbrook.  Somehow their mother was smart enough to get the kittens up off the ground and we found them on a pile of rubbish under a piece of plastic sheeting.  Their mother, Sophie, was wild with fear, hunger, and stress.  But all were rescued and brought inside to the safety of their foster home where they thrived.

I just put the tree up today.  The boys were very curious.  Charlie (our other cat) kept going over and telling them to get down.  I think he’ s jealous because he’s too big to climb the tree this year.  They are all napping now.  I’m sure one of them will make it to the top of the tree eventually.  Have a wonderful holiday season.

Raspy is such a cute ball of fur.  He is always by my side.  He still isn’t talking though.  All four cats get along great.  My old guy, Blacky, just turned 14 and he’s still going strong.  Talk to you soon.

    The website looks great. Love the pictures you posted of my boys, Rusty and Raspy. They are the best and we are so happy we adopted both of them. I was worried about having four cats but it worked out just fine. So to anyone reading this website – ADOPT more than one cat. They’ll keep each other and you entertained. You’re the greatest Terry! Keep up the good work.

      Hi Cindy,

      Thank you for your great post and compliments. Your recommendation to adopt more than one cat is a great one. It’s true that multiple cats will keep each other entertained and they snuggle together too. Of course, there’s always the cat that prefers to be an ‘only’ cat – and that’s fine too. I recently placed a cat, who through no fault of her own, preferred to be an only cat because some of the other fosters were picking on her. Why? I don’t know but she spent a lot of time staying out of the way of her pursuers. Her name is Sienna and she can be seen on this blog. I still have Sophie, the mother of Rusty and Raspy. She’s up on I haven’t put her up on this site yet. I think she’s another one who’d prefer being an only cat. She loves people but finds other cats a bit irritating. But I think this is a rare phenomenon since all my other fosters love each other.
