We Interrupt Our Regularly Scheduled Programming bring you pictures of our two new furry family members.

This is Bro:

And this is Ella:

This is their third day with us. We adopted the siblings from Toronto Cat Rescue on Saturday. They were being boarded at a pet store and cared for by loving staff, but with almost no space to roam and play.

Bro and Ella are four years old and were given up for adoption when the family they lived with split up.

Our family was looking for two adult cats with sweet personalities. Our previous cat, Jelly Bean, was a supremely neurotic female orange tabby. Apparently, they can have really difficult personalities and Miss J.B. was up there with the best of them: a combination of Greta Garbo ("I vant to be left alone") and Miss Destruction (carpets, furniture, pee and poo everywhere but in the box). J.B. did not brighten our lives, but we stood by her until her sudden and untimely death from a blood clot.

This time around we were looking for some real cat love. I think we've found it.

Yes, that's the sound of the whole family purring...


  1. So glad you have found a peaceful pair of felines.....there is nothing better. We recently lost the oldest of our two, also to a blood clot and the remaining one is her daughter. They had been together for 16 years....there is lots of kitty cuddling going on in our house as well. It's so nice to be a "cat person" isn't it?? :-)

  2. I like cats...the more distant and slightly grumpy and arrogant the better. It's what makes cats such a hoot.
