Missy & Mandy

Missy, a tuxedo cat, actually a baby kitten. She was a birthday gift to me from my dear friend Dorothy. We chose her together. Missy was my first American cat. I had had 2 cats in my former home in Tunisia, North Africa. Missy was immediately adopted by my Cocker Spaniel and they became fast friends. However, my Cocker Spaniel’s days eventually came to an end, and Missy mourned her terribly. Dorothy to the rescue again, and we returned to the shelter to choose a companion for Missy, and me too. Hence Mandy came into our lives. She graced my home and neighborhood for 15 years and is now too in Kitty Heaven. Now I am in the process of adopting another kitty from the shelter. Another adventure!
