Well took a hour but figured out how to post. Greetings from the middle of the state of Illinois. Alittle about my self. I am 44 years young with a old body. I have been rescueing kitties for almost 15 years. I do also dog rescue but not as much as kitties. There are 7 kitties and 3 dogs along with the kitties pet bird (Silly Sally) and the turtle named Gracie. The top cat is Mr. T. who is 17 1/2 years young weighing 17 pounds. Unfortionaly our time with Mr. T is near the end. He was diagnosed with cancer 6 months ago. Mr. T came to us when he was 3 weeks old after being found by a boater who witnessed his being tossed overboard by a fellow boater. Tiggy Tie- will be 10 years in April. We think she is part Maine Coon. She is a real lover to the family but rarely seen by others. Rascal- age unknown we have had him for 4 years. He was rescued from a very busy interstate. Cars had ran him over and left him for dead. By the time he reached me it was unknown if he would survive. He is a handsome Red tabby even with no tail. Buffy- A beatiful Maine Coon we think. I rescued her from a very abusive family along with her brother who did not survive. She was so dirty and thin that it was thought that she was black. To our surprise she is a buff colored kitty. Tommy- a totally black handsome fellow. A real lover and loyal friend. He just turned a year old Valantines Day. Precious- She is our wonder kitty. She will be 2 in April. She is our tinist kitty. Precious was severly neglected from birth. Being the runt didn't receive the proper intervention from the owner. Once I was told about her I had to have her. Precious never grew fully her size is that of maybe 4 months. Many vets have told us that she will not live a long life. Lastly is my Daisy Mae- she is my sole mate. Rescued from a lake by a fisherman. She was the sole surviver. After extensive vet care I was able take her home. She was 4 weeks old. Daisy is now 5 months old and has imprinted me as mom. She is a brown tabby with a white chest. Our 3 dogs are Clyde- a 11 year old collie/husky a wonderful companion. Bonnie is a 2 year old Border collie/Bassett who is the family brat. Chrissy is a 4 month old Rottweiler/lab. Who is very smart and has begain her training to be a service dog.
