stella & bullet

a few weeks ago my husband and i headed out on a beautiful sunday afternoon, we were going to an art showing. on our way there my husband said" we are just looking and that our budget would not allow for us to bring anything home at the time" somehow we came home with a young cat named stella. both  k and i were confused at how we ended up taking a cat home from the exeter animal shelter that had a booth at the show. I had seen stella when she was just born at the shelter on the days i volunteer, yes she was born in a cage and six month later she was still there. i had thought about getting bullet a friend but hesitated every time i visited the rescue( so many cats heart breaking really) after all aren't we dog people we would say to each other. 

the house for the first few days was crazy, bullet who was the reason behind bringing Stella home in  the first place hated us, he refused to eat, would stare her down as she walked passed him, i soon recognized this to be love and they have beenthat way ever since. she is sweet and so different than him, she loves basking in the sun in the laundry room, although i do think it has to do with being in a cage for so long that she seems to like small spaces. in the evening when the dogs are upstairs in bed she comes out and bullet spends the evening talking to her i mean he really does not stop, he calls out to her when he can't see her, she hides behind corners and leaps to him. they play from room to room knocking down vases as they meet in mid air and then finally when they can no longer put off sleep they cozy up to each other on the ottoman.

this sounds exactly like my brother's cat (she) and my cat (he), who first hated each other, but are now in love. He will literally "talk" to her for hours, and she in turn will lick his ears and groom him for hours. I love this, it's too cute.

How could you resist Stella?! These pictures are just lovely...your cats are so sweet! If our old girl would let us, we'd get another cat - but she's pretty set in her ways. :)

when i moved into my boyfriend's house, we had the daunting task of intruducing my 10 yr old male to his 3 yr old female. mine had never been around another kitty. we kept them separated for a few weeks and then one day just let them meet. it took a few run-ins for them to get used to each other but now they are so cute. i really think they like having a companion around. congrats on beautiful stella!
