Hello Sophie

It all started with a normal trip to Petsmart. I try to hurry past the kitties up for adoption, but yesterday I peeked in. There was a beautiful long hair tuxie girl that was 6 1/2 yo. She was so sweet and loving. I stayed in there way too long. All the way home I thought about her. All night long I thought about her. I even gave her a name. Marlo. So I go back today to get her. I know, I need another cat like I need a mole with hair on my nose. BUT, she's gone!! I missed her by 45 minutes. Not meant to be. So I start scritching a pretty calico girl and one employee after another comes in and tells me her story. She's been in that cage 2 months, she's affectionate and a beauty. SOLD. Her name is Sophie, she's 1 yo and she's a leaner. She rubs and leans against my legs. She has beautiful gold eyes, but she manages to blink with the camera flash...She's in the bathroom, has a hidy hole in the linen closet. Has already claimed the tub.  I put a screen door up instead of the regular one so everyone can meet each other. Only 3 hisses so far - from Sophie at Isis twice, and once at Romeo. So here she is..... Sophie.

Hi Sophie! Welcome to Peggy's place. My mom walked by the kitty adoption cages the other day and she said it was very hard to pass up bringing me home a brother or sister.

Sophie is gorgeous. Calico is one of our favorites around here and she is really pretty. Thank you so much for taking her home. I bet she was glad to get out of that cage.

Save Moki said...

Oh Sophie is such a beauty! I think I would have taken her home too...lol

Sorry we haven't been around much these days...I've been swamped with school work. Anyway I wanted to let you know that I finally got a chance to unpack some of the boxes from when I moved about a year and a half ago (I know, I know...) and I found some of the ceramic bowls you mailed to help Moki with his medical costs...Well, he's been doing pretty good this last year, hasn't been on the Tamilfu in about 4 months, but is now in need of physical therapy, (his walking is getting really bad) so I am finally going to put those bowls to use. I have them listed up on a Facebook auction under Moki's profile, and have referred people to your blog, being as you are the artist...

Anyway I just wanted to thank you again for all that you have done for Moki, and say that while it may have been awhile since we last had a chance to speak with one another, I haven't forgotten!

Bear's Meowmy said...

Love Bear & Amelia
