Rescue Pet Linky Party

Hi all -

I'm participating in the Linky Party over at Lillypad Quilting..... and since I love love love to talk about my rescue furbabies, I'm more than happy to do so - and maybe I will win some fabric!!!! 

Our rescue furbabies come from a wonderful organization in Oakland, California, called Maine Coon Rescue - they rescue kitties from shelters, and keep them until they are adopted - no kitty is euthanized - and they manage to place blind, old, and even three-legged kitties. 

Two years ago we adopted these two lovies ;  Gloucester and Gabriel... don't they look so absolutely sweet together?
But then, very sadly, Gabriel left to go to the Rainbow Bridge.... and Gloucester, now nicknamed Miss Bit, was lonely.....  she tried to play with the kitty in the mirror - she flirted with the kitty who lived outside the glass door at night, and she danced infront of the kitty in the black dishwasher door - but none of those kitties would play or snuggle.

Oh, sad, sad, and lonely Bit














One day the "People" brought in a carrying case...  oh, let me at him... she said

"oh, he's mine, and he tastes good too!"""  His name will be Mystic!


Bit tried to learn a trade... 

Mystic tried to learn to quilt - binding was his favorite..
 applique was just exhausting
So, they both decided to become models -  and spend their time cultivating their natural beauty...

And Gloucester and Mystic are living Happy Ever After in their forever home!

and the Quilting Professor and DH are so, so lucky.

Gorgeous kitties! I have always loved Maine Coons and our elderly cat, Chessie, is a pure bred Maine Coon (first and only pure breed, the rest are strays and rescues).

What sweet babies! Are they Maine Coons then? How old are they, I thought all Maine Coons were big? My husband wants a Main Coon, but we already have eight cats and do not need anymore.

that was so wonderful. The first pic is awesome, but Bit is the heart of the piece. I have a standard poodle who often writes on my blog. Missed the linky party but enjoying reading your stories now.
