Abe follows us around like a puppy

Abe is our little boy cat.   Our daughter rescued him from under a trash container behind the United Methodist Church in Camarillo, CA while serving as associate minister.  Abe is short for Abraham, like in the bible, Genesis 15-21.   He was only about 4 weeks old when we brought him home.  Some ferrell cats do better than others and Abe bonded with us perfectly.  He lives inside, happy and content to rule the house with an iron hand while following us around whereever we go.  At night when we watch TV he shares the sofa but only watches if the show is about birds.  We think Abe is beautiful.

Cali was named for California

Cali, our little girl cat

Cali was rescued by local firefighters.  They dropped her off at Petco, a pet supply store, where my daughter was working during her college days.    Cali was adopted and quickly took up residence in our house.   At first Cali ruled over the other two cats with an iron hand.   However, her “alpha cat” position did not last long.  We rescued a little boy cat, Abe, who immediately established his own control as the dominate cat.    Cali’s reduction in rank was a difficult transition for her but peace in the house was quickly restored with all our cats living happily ever after.
