    Where did you get your pets?

    We rescued Autumn from a mill and we got Pepper from a breeder. Sonny came from a farm. Depot and the roachies came from a pet store.

    Ash was a stray who turned up on our verandah, in fact i think he had been sleeping there for sometime, Lexie we adopted from a cat shelter, and Duchess and Vicky are not mine legally, but since having the neighbours kitties spayed they have moved in my backyard, i look after them and we have built them a shelter, so i really feel they are mine now.
    Furangels only lent.
    RIP my gorgeous Sooti, taken from us far too young, we miss your beautiful face and purssonality,take care of Ash for us, love you xx000

    RIP my beautiful gorgeous Nikkita, taken so suddenly ,we will never ever forget you, we miss you more than words can say, loved you so much, my heart just aches for you, gone to be with Mama and Ash.

    Willa came from a shelter, Miss Kitty was born at a plant nursery where I used to work. I got Olive, Monroe, Mindy and Clover at my work place, a veterinary hospital (go figure): Somebody found Olive in the parking lot, Monroe and Mindy were dropped off as 4-day old kittens, and Clover was surrendered to me by his previous owners who couldn't afford his care anymore.
    I have had many more opportunities to get more cats from work over the years, but I was lucid enough to resist (which is very difficult), but since all my cats are special needs babies, I knew it would be impossible to afford care for even more cats.

    Going back through my life, almost every cat has been from a shelter or th SPCA and there have been many. Several were given to me, some I found and one I babysat an no one came back for him. I recall three I bought from a pet store and two of them were always sickly and had very short lives. When we learn better we do better, hopefully. I love cats!!!!

    All three of my dogs came from the shelter, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
