We're Taking the Plunge...

I'm so excited...
Hubs and I haven't had any pets in about 10 years. We used to have 2 dogs and 2 cats but lost them, one by one to cancer and other diseases that plague older animals. I admit our hearts broke each time we had to say goodbye but when we put Rocky, our dobie of 16 yrs down, it just about did us in.

Hubs and I dont do much of anything spontaneous (except throw some clothes on the motorcycle and take off for a weekend trip) and we've been discussing adopting for a very long time. Well... the decision has been made and I'm about as excited as a person can be! You see, this weekend we are adopting 2 rescue cats from the KC Siamese rescue. Both are between 2 - 3 yrs old, one male and one female.

We decided to get 2 Siamese cats, so they can keep each other company for the times that we are gone overnight. We get the male on Friday morning, and the female on Saturday morning - so I'll post pics soon! Their names now are Requiem and Tiffany - ummm.... I've been giving that some thought too, and I think their new names will be Nip for the lil girl and Tuck for the laid back boy ♥

I hope they like us!!

Congratulations!! I love Siamese Cat I had one for 12 years, she was the best cat ever. Gave Back massage, only drank out of facet, weigh 20lb, she was a big fat cat LOL. I brought her from Alaska and had to pay dog rate to fly her here while the kids and i took the bus!! I KNOW! she was my queen and I love her to bits. She passed away due to kidney failure right when I found out I was pregnant. It's almost like she knew, cause I called her my daughter all these years, I have 2 boys at the time. When it was her time, I was blessed with a daughter 6 months later. I miss her dearly still. 7 years it's been. Ok enough of my blubbering LOL Congrats, you'll love them and I love the new name!! Nip and Tuck. Perfect!!!!!! Can't wait to see pictures.

Congrats on the new additions to your family. I was never around Siamese Cats till I met my hubby and his family had one named Sheba and she had the funniest meow I've ever heard. She was a cool kitty like the Siamese cats on "lady and the tramp. (she was kinda mischevious and was full of personality)

Enjoy and please post pics when the new kids come home.
