"C" is for Charlie ... and Crumble

Our household is home to six cats. Except for our most recent addition, all of them have been rescues. Over the month, I'll introduce you to a few of them, starting with Charlie and Crumble...


Crumble came to our house along with my fiancé. He's the oldest at eleven years and came from the Cat's Protection League. It took him a while to warm to his new family, having been just the pair of them for a while. But when he's in sop mode... he's a very plush cat. The type you want to cuddle.



Charlie on the other hand was saved right off the side of the road as a kitten along with his brother and mother. They were the stereotypical cardboard box hurtled onto some bushes. That was a little over eight years ago.

To this date, he still thinks he's the eternal kitten.

  1. Wow, lucky Charlie! And lucky Crumble, too. But to be dumped on the street then saved is great. They look as though they're having a lovely life now.

    1. Oh yeah, I can't understand it. The SPCA would've taken them. Of course, they would've broken up the family in the end, at least this way, they're together for life.

  2. What sweet boys! I have 2 orange and white kitties myself. They're quite spunky!

    1. They -are- sweet ... when -they- want to be. Usual kitty behaviour.

  3. Awww. My husband is allergic to cats, otherwise we'd probably own a couple. He loves the critters. I like "To this date, he still thinks he's the eternal kitten." Sounds adorable.

    1. He does. And because of that, is a little miffed when the two younger cats play.

  4. I think I'd have a hard time breathing in your house . . . dang allergies.

    1. Yeah, we're not a cat-allergy-friendly home.

    1. And I was three months pregnant at the time. Almost threw myself down a bank grabbing Charlie's brother.

      Of course, Simba is my daughter's baby now.
