How did we meet? How does any relationship begin these days, online. I’d spent several weeks looking at profile after profile of mature males with charming pictures, clever screen names and flattering descriptions: sporty, laid back, cuddly or mellow. I’d read them all, bookmarked a few even called to arrange some meetings.

Meet Bella! Bella is my wonderful little girl. I got her when she was about 3 months old. I was at a friend’s house who had just gotten a puppy. She was so cute. I wanted to steal her.

Meet Willis aka Will Feral!   It was over 7 years ago when we first saw Willis at the Oakland Animal Shelter. At 7 months old, Willis’ personality caught our eye. Purring out loud, pacing back and forth like a shark. For our family, it was all a new experience; seeing so many cats made it only harder to choose. We questioned why no one had picked him and if he would be a good companion. Workers at the shelter mentioned that he had many roommates who had been adopted. Yet he still remained. However, it was noted that he was an excellent roommate, butRead More →
