Coffee and . . . Cats!

Here we are, halfway through October and thoroughly enjoying the bright days and crisp nights that make autumn in Connecticut so spectacular. And speaking of the wonders of fall, what's better on those cool, star-filled evenings than a delicious cup of coffee from a master roaster? Several cups -- plus homemade treats to go with them! Add to the mix the shared wisdom of an animal massage therapist and communicator and the fact that the proceeds from this amazing event go to cat rescue, and you'll feel great about attending. . .

Get your tickets now, before they sell out!

Sister Act!

Once in a while, we encounter two cats who, while they might fare perfectly well in separate situations, really do seem happiest together. Athena and Esme are a perfect example of this, which is why we would love for them to go to the same forever home!

These beautiful sisters are about a year old. Athena is more white than black, while Esme is more black than white. You can certainly see a family resemblance, but their personalities are quite different. Esme is the outgoing one, while Athena is quite shy. They're both crazy about laser lights and other toys (if you're carrying one of their favorites, you won't get away without a vigorous play session), and they both love treats. The only thing they love more than treats is each other's company. They'll groom, play, and just chill out with one another; it's wonderful to watch even the simplest interactions between such a sweet and companionable pair.

Esme is fine with being picked up, while Athena isn't just yet. Esme is definitely more touchy-feely than her sibling; we don't know why that is, but they do seem to complement each other perfectly. . . maybe we should have called them Yin and Yang. :)

Athena and Esme are ready to settle into a loving home together. Helping them do just that will be one of the many rewards of sharing your life with this lovely duo. Please pay the girls a visit any Saturday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., and find out if they might be the right match for you!
