Photo Friday: Abbey and Alex

Today I want to do something a little different and post a photo from the past, well before Chris was born. I actually took this picture on my birthday, July 9, 2005.

This was the first picture I could find of our two cats, Abbey and Alex, so I think we had just adopted them. Back then Abbey was called Stirling and Alex was called Sloan. We actually adopted Alex but we couldn’t take him and leave his sister behind so we took her too, which was an excellent decision. While we had Alex out of the cage at the PetSmart shelter, Abbey pooped and left it unburied. It was the stinkiest poop we ever smelled and it seemed to remain that stinky throughout her life. Also, her habit of not burying her stinky poops remained too.

Here is Abbey trying to figure out how to get at the fish while Alex looks on.

    I had to adopt Andy’s brother, Dougy, after I learned they’d been good playmates together. When siblings are good together, it makes good sense to adopt them both, I think. On the other hand, they have another brother and a sister that were antagonistic toward each other and were adopted together. I haven’t heard if that ever sorted itself out. (I got the two good ones, I think!)

    That said, I enjoyed seeing this photo from the past of Abbey and Alex together! I think you made a good decision, too, Charles.

      Thanks. It happened again a year later. My mother inlaw adopted a cat, Tigger, but the shelter called and wanted him back because his brother, Flash, was distrought without him. Since the mother inlaw didn’t want two cats we took them both.
