(I desperately need to move these pics over to my new domain and clean up the page. Maybe soon.)All pictures with Santa were taken Christmas, 2000.
This is the "elder" of our pet clan, Windy, a domestic medium hair. We adopted her from Operation Kindness (a local no-kill shelter) back in February of 1993. She's a shy cat when it comes to strangers, and only likes to cuddle on her terms.
Gypsy is the Queen of the household. She is also a Operation Kindness kitty. We adopted her on May 2, 1999, and her birthday is February 12, 1999. Gypsy is a natural mink Tonkinese mix, and has darkened considerable since we first got her. Gypsy is also an incredibly jealous kitty -- when it comes to sharing me with my computer. Heehee! She thinks anytime I'm online is time I should be using to fuss over her.

Dewey was my beloved tortiseshell kitty. She showed up on our doorstep in the summer of 1991, and slowly moved herself indoors after we failed to find her owners. I was by far her favorite human, and she'd follow me around the house, and be waiting at the front door to give me "kisses" when I returned home from work. In mid-May of 1999, Dewey was diagnosed with severe renal failure; and even with the most aggresive treatments, her prognosis was not favorable. After a heart-wrenching week of decisions, Dewey was put to sleep on May 28, 1999 -- I still miss her with all my heart.
