These are my babies. Samwise is the orange tiger who is 8 and Connie is the gray tiger who is 10. They have been my kiddos for nine years now. Connie, my ex got for me for my birthday one year. She is a rescue cat. We think that her previous owners left her because she tends to vomit often. Vets have said that nothing is wrong with her and that she probably just eats too fast sometimes. She loves to cuddle and play rough. We call her sissy. When she lays on her back her belly looks like a furry little football.
Sam is the bigger little brother. We rescued him from some friends who had split up and their house was flea infested. He is a character. He does not like closed doors and if you go to the bathroom without him he sits outside the door and yells at you. He loves yogurt and will bring back his toys for you to throw them again. They have traveled across the country twice with me. Once when I moved out to Colorado 8 years ago and again when I moved back home to NY last year.
I would never leave them behind. They are my children and I am truly blessed to have them.
