For something different:
Bueller and McLovin were saved by Peggy, a former grad student of my partner. She is a cat rescuer. A semi-feral colony of cats was living around a house a couple blocks from Peggy. The fellow who lived in that house was very old and ill and he put out food but did not look after the cats. He passed away and the cats were completely untended. Peggy slowly nabbed them one or two at a time (she eventually did save the colony). Naomi, my partner, and I saw pictures of the little boys and went over to look. We had lost a couple of beloved cats over the previous two years and were ready to think about new ones.
These boys, now 2, are the sweetest, most playful, funny pets I have ever had. I cannot even think of a long vacation because being away form them would hurt too much. They are delightful, beautiful companions and the best part of my day is playing our nightly “getting ready for bed” games, which include lots of hugs and scratches (of them, not me, although McLovin tends to hug back).
Bueller is laying with his back to the camera and McLovin is looking you in the eye. They are less than 1 in this photo.
Love that look.
