Traveling Dog Lady: Happy gotcha day!

Happy gotcha day!

Five years ago today, we adopted two motherless kittens who were NOT from the same litter!

Cali (a.k.a. "Lady Kitty" because she's the only female pet); and Tux (a.k.a. "Bullet" because he flies through the air, really fast,  without touching the ground) joined our pack on August 1st, 2009.

Introducing them to Hobie and Hector, at the time, was quite the challenge, even though the dogs had grown up with cats their whole lives.  At one point, Hobie tried to eat Tux.  Blood was drawn.  It wasn't Tux's blood!  Hobie could have lost an eye, or something.  The scrapping didn't last long.  It was clear that Tux was in charge.

Today, Tux cuddles with Hobie all the time, and they have a wonderful friendship.

This morning, Cali joined Charlie Brown and me on our walk to the lake and back.  She hasn't done that for a while, so I figure she must have known it was our anniversary!



They look full-grown here, but they were just little kittens -- approximately 3 months old.
This is the first photo I took of them when I brought them home.

 I'll be writing a post next week for DoggyLoot, about how to introduce a new cat to a home where dogs already live.  Keep your green eyes open for that!


Cali, relaxing in the shade after our walk this morning!
Happy Gotcha Day, Cali-co!
(I'll add a picture of Tux after he comes out of hiding!)


We are so lucky to live on an extremely-safe (no-traffic) dirt road.
