My beasts.


Here are pictures of my 3.

This is Sybrah (Sib-Ruh)
She was found abandoned as a kitten by a friend of mine. I took her as my own as soon as he told me about her. Shes now 7 years old and the eldest of my furry brood.




This is Brownie. She came to me at about 1 year of age and is now 6.
She was a stray in a bad violence-ridden neighborhood. Whenever I would go walk to the convenience store, she would always follow and keep me company. She purred and loved to be petted. One time I had seen another local stray attacking her. She ended up being ok.
Another time, I witnessed one of the scumbag people on my street sick his vicious pitbull on her. knowing that dog, its history and its lowsy owners, had he gotten ahold of then stray Brownie, he would have surely mauled her to death. I immediately went to look for her after that stricken with grief with what I had just seen. I could not find her.
A week or so later, my then boyfriend now husband, were doing laundry at a local laundromat when the Torti came strolling up to us. I immediately took her under my arm and brought her home.
Those horrid streets and bad people were forever in her past at that point.

For the first few days, she wouldnt sleep anywhere but in my lap. Which is what this first picture is of.




My final addition is Smokey Bones. I adopted her from a local shelter about 3 years ago. She was about 1 year of age when I did and is now about 4. They advertised her as a Russian Blue, but I dont believe she is full RB. Maybe mixed.
She has some sort of growth stunt in that she is not the average size for a cat. At full growth, she is no bigger than a 5 month old cat.
The shelter folk didnt know much of her past except that she was skiddish and easily freightened. She was a tough one to integrate to the current cats. She was fiesty. And growled like a dog at people outside our window. She has her quirks even still, but is one of the sweetest cats Ive had.




Thanks for looking!

Re: My beasts.


what lovely cats you have, their stories choked me up, especialy Brownies.So glad they are all safe with you.
Smokey Bones looks really cuddly, it tickled me to think of her growling at people through the window.
love that first pic of Sybrah
