Thank You, and Sunday Selfies

Thank you, dear friends and family, for the tremendous outpouring of love, support and kindness after we had to say goodbye to our beloved housepanther, Zoe. She was an amazing little cat, so full of joy and life, and we hold fast to the hope that we will see her again, one fine day. Until then, her indomitable spirit lives on in our hearts and minds.
Thank you, Ann/Zoolatry, for this beautiful badge.
For those who don't know, we adopted Zoe and her sister Gracie together as senior kitties from PAWS. Bonded siblings who are older often have a difficult time being adopted. Gracie and Zoe waited for three years before they came home with us, and they infused our home with love. We have never, ever regretted our excellent decision to adopt them. And I'm not just saying that because Gracie is snuggled up between Tracey and me right now. 😉 

Speaking of bonded older kitty pairs, when we asked the adorable adoptable PAWS cats who would volunteer for the Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfie Blog Hop (this week's edition is in honor of Angel Zoe!), up stepped Miss Kitty and her brother Black Jack. And they both did a fine job. Just look at those faces!

Miss Kitty and Blackjack are about 8 years old, and are both super friendly lapcats. They love people and get along with other nice kitties. They are both spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, current on their vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. As mentioned, they are totally bonded, and must be adopted together. But as we will attest, that just means more love for everybuddy. Come meet Miss Kitty and Black Jack today, and fall in love!

It's Sunday, which means we're taking part in the Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We hope you'll join in the fun!  Our dear friends, Mom Janet and the Kitties Blue, asked if they could honor our beloved Angel Zoe this week. We are so moved by this sweet and thoughtful gesture, and of course said, "yes." Thank you, sweet pals, for remembering our baby Zoe.


  1. Just wanted to say again so sorry to hear as bout Zoe. A wonderful kitty. And an excellent reminder about the importance of adopting seniors

  2. Miss Kitty and Black Jack look such an ideal rehoming couple, so much love and friendship to give just like Gracie and Zoe. At eight they sure aren't old, and boy they are so cute too!

  18. Miss Kitty and Black Jack look like two peas in a pod. We pray they will have a new home really soon. We were happy to have the opportunity to honor Zoe; though, so sad that you had to say good-bye. Lymphoma is very sneaking. We lost our very special cat, Madison, to it. We know she'll be in your hearts forever and that you all will be reunited again. Sending lots of love and prayers. Thank you for being our friends!

  19. Miss Kitty and Black Jack are a lovely pair. I am glad that bonded kitties must be adopted together. It is heartbreaking to think that some places split them up.
    Love and hugs to you both, and a special hug for Gracie.

  20. That's really a great graphic for her.

  21. I'm grateful that Zoe had such a loving forever home and family in her final years. I hope Gracie is coping well after her sister is gone. Miss Kitty and Black Jack are such cute siblings. I hope they will find their home very soon xo

  22. Miss Kitty and Black Jack are both such lovely cats, and look so much alike!

    That is a wonderful graphic for Zoe. And thank you again for giving her and Gracie a loving home together in their senior years. I can only imagine how distressing and confusing this is for Gracie, and glad you are there for her.

  23. I'm so sorry to hear about Zoe, but you gave Zoe and Gracie the best gift ever - you adopted them together! I'm sure they think it was worth the 3 year wait to be in such a loving home. Black Jack and Miss Kitty are beautiful, I hope they find a wonderful home soon. Sharing.

  26. I can't even imagine a kitty waiting 3 years for a home :( The one she got was worth the wait though!
