Furtastic Friday - My Extended Feline Family

The other day I told you all about my cousin Raji who found his forever home with Gammy & Gampy, so I thought I would tell you about my two other cousins today. They live with Gammy & Gampy down in Victoria now but before they lived 3 hours north of Sydney so Harry & I would go and visit them a lot and for quite a while we even lived with them so we are all friends.


Q was found by Gampy in his work shed. She was only a couple of weeks old and she was all alone. No one knows how she got there and because she was only a tiny baby of course they had to keep her. She is almost 5 years old now and is a real trouble maker. I don't think she likes Mama much because everytime she sees her she just stares and stares at her.


Tabby was advertised in the local paper for several weeks as free to good home. Mama insisted that they go see her because why would someone get rid of a perfectly good tabby cat. She was very loved by the lady there and but they were going on a long holiday (several years) and couldn't take her with them. The man said he didn't know what to do because no one would take her and they might have to get her put down. Enought said, of course Mama and Gammy took her on the spot. She is almost 9 now but sadly she has breast cancer on all of her teats, it is too far gone and the surgery is very invasive. The vet said she wouldn't last long but she has lasted for 3 years and is really enjoying her new home, it has given her a second lease on life she happy, playful and a real loving cat.

Have a fabulous furtastic friday!
