Because the last days before Christmas kept me so busy, including getting the first shift of HCMT/Pittsburgh CAT calendars mailed out, and I have so many photos of Jack and Diane, I’m going to feature those two little pumpkins today even if they aren’t up for adoption. Well, they might be.
Especially Diane, who went from behind-the-toilet-semi-feral-hate to hi-mew-pick-me-up-nose-rubs in about two hours one day. I lost track of days last week but I think that was last Friday, in the morning.
For a few days she was friendlier than Jack, and perhaps that was because he was just as surprised as I was, but possibly because she constantly wanted to wrestle and when she’d been frightened of me there was simply less time to worry about her attacks.
Today, they both love their pets, love to be picked up and kissed, and both rub against my ankles, like good little kitties. I just need to get someone in here to interact with them and see how that goes.
They will be with me for about another week. So enjoy the photos!

HCMT/Pittsburgh C.A.T. 2017 Calendar from Portraits of Animals!
I designed and am publishing this calendar on behalf of these two organizations for which I volunteer and support. All proceeds of sales of this calendar after costs will go directly to our work Making Life Better for Cats Every Day of the Year. Price includes shipping. You’ll find a box to enter your address or special instructions in your shopping cart.
Each month features a cat and its story who we rescued through TNR or rescue from abandonment, neglect or abuse, offered medical treatment, fostering, socialization, and a loving forever home that met their individual needs.
In addition, each month is sponsored with an ad from veterinarians, businesses and individuals who support HCMT and Pittsburgh C.A.T., including five of the veterinarians who regularly take a shift at our clinics to spay and neuter plus pet sitting and pet first aid training so you have ready resources for services you and your pets can use right at your fingertips.
