The Fab Four

Hannah Grace is a tabby girl.  We adopted her from Fort Worth Animal Control on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, 2005.  We almost lost her due to a very severe upper respiratory infection the first week we had her.  The vet told us later that he really didn't expect her to live through the night, but she's a fighter and she is determined!  She came through that illness, but it took a good 6 weeks to completely get over it.  In 2007, after almost 8 months of sneezing, she was diagnosed with Feline Herpes Virus (FHV).  She most likely picked it up while out on her own on the streets.  Today, she's a happy, sassy, and feisty thing!  She's turned into a Momma's girl the past few years and loves a good snuggle and to burrow under the covers next to me at night.

Tumbleweed (aka "Tumbles") is a brown tabby boy.  He was rescued from a storm drain in a downpour on July 1, 2010 and came to live with us on July 13, 2010.  He was only 10 weeks old at the time and was so scared and so skittish.  He would run and hide under the bed every time we went into his room to visit him.  He would come out once we were in the room, but any little noise sent him scurrying under the bed.  He was so tiny and I felt so sad for him to be so young and so scared.  We worked with him for about a month before letting him out of isolation and into the general population of the house.  He's come such a long way since we adopted him!  He no longer startles easily and he's a little love bug.  He provides us with lots and lots and LOTS of laughter and silliness.  He and Hannah are working it out as they are both very stubborn and strong-willed kitties.
Daisy came to live with us in February, 2013.  We adopted her from a local rescue group.  She's a beautiful, petite tortoiseshell kitty who is feisty and loving.  She was approximately a year old when we adopted her and she's a very quiet, not in your face kitty loving, crawl all over you and give you love and headbutts, vocal kitty.  First to show up if  cheese treats, chicken, or people food is around.  She's a bit on the shy side confident, yet cautious kitty, but also big on love and has the softest fur I've ever seen on a kitty.  Tortie kitties are known for their 'tude and she's got it, but she's mellowed tremendously since moving into our home.  She's learned to trust and knows that we're not going to abandon her.
Emmie is our newest and youngest kitty.  She showed up in our backyard in early November, 2014 just a few days ahead of a major downpour.  She was unclaimed, so we had her vetted and spayed and now she lives with us, giving Tumbles a run for his money.  She's a snuggle bug and loves to be in the middle of what's going on. She's an absolute love bug and fills our home with much joy and laughter.
