I {Heart} Cats (PDEC 52 - Ch# 6)

Happy Tuesday Bloggers,

I am doing a bit of catch up on the Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges.   I did not start working with this challenge group until Ch# 9.  I am slowly catching up with Janis our leader. 

I do not remember a time when cats were not in my life.  My earliest memory of cats (kitties, kittens, etc.) was playing with them on my Grammy's back porch.  She had dozens of cats around most of the time.  They were great at keeping the rattlesnake population down.  Some of the cats I remember most are:
1) Missy, she was a three day old we brought back from Freer one Thanksgiving.  She survived the eight hour trip.
2) Mittens was the first kitty I acquired when I was first married.  She was a wonderful calico kitty.
3) Stripes (a tabby) and Tuxedo (black with a white bow at his neck) were from a friend.
4) Abby was my best bud for a long time, a real sweetie.  She passed away in 2003.
5, 6 and 7) Sophie, Zach ("Bubbe") and Lucy.  These are my current feline fur-babies.  Sophie is an orange/white tabby I got from the local shelter.  Her favorite meow is 'met'.  Zach, affectionately known as Bubbe was acquired two weeks after Sophie.  He was also acquired at the shelter.  Bubbe looks very similar to Sophie.  Lucy is a found fur-baby.  A cute little calico who loves to talk.  She is a 'Daddy's girl'.  I could babble on about my babies for hours ... days!  Let's get to the tag!
