Talisman "Tali" was born around 4/20/2014, and adopted from Forgotten Cats a few months later when he stole our hearts by being the "ugly duckling" of his litter. He grew up to be a big, beautiful cat with the most easy-going purrsonality. He could be a bit shy with strangers, but with his family he was the sweetest boy. He grew up with a variety of other critters, from hamsters to dogs, and learned to accept anything and everything as normal. His favorite thing was catnip and belly rubs. He passed unexpectedly at 8 years young, from unknown causes.
Zombie "Zomb" joined our family after being left outside in the cold by his previous owners, who said he only wanted to be outside and wouldn't use his litter box. He was believed to be 16-19 years old at the time. In our home we found him to be the most affectionate velcro cat, with impeccable litter box manners, who wanted nothing more than a warm lap to curl up in. He was skinny, arthritic, mostly blind, a little senile, and yet so full of life. He passed in his late teens, from age related struggles.
Zoey "Zozo" was our pandemic baby. At 14 years old, she lost her previous owner and was surrendered to a shelter. While she was always good-natured and friendly, it took months to fully earn her trust and form a bond. She blossomed into a sassy, talkative, and endlessly affectionate kitty. She loved to hold a conversation, and was particularly fond of having her paws massaged. She wasn't afraid to tell you when she wanted her treats, which was always. She passed at 16 years old, from chronic kidney problems.
