I figured I'd introduce these guys. So up there, that's Mr. Frank the Bear and the International Man of Mystery.
And this fair lady is Valpuri the Countess and Queen the ruler of All. She's lived with me for ten years, come May. They are both adopted from a shelter for homeless cats. In fact, all of my four cats are from a shelter and that's the only way I want to get an animal companion. There are so many cats being bred into this world and so so incredibly many cats who are, for one reason or the other, without a home.
