Dear Zoey, Saki, Patches, Snowflake, and Sicycat:
GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE
We are also grey cat addicts, by the way. And EVERY OTHER COLOR, COAT PATTERN, AND SPECIES OF FELINE as well. Cats rule -- dogs, uh, drool...
Very nice cats there, yourselves!!! Snowflake and Sishya are obviously related; and Patches and Maryam are distant sisters! "My" beloved Nila a/k/a Big Blue is currently in sanctuary in a kinder, gentler location to the north; he is blue (or grey) from nose to tail, including his nose leather, paw pads, and whiskers -- MISS HIM TERRIBLY!!!
But am glad he is safe.
