How can a mere hooman possibly resist such an exhortation?

That said, here's Ginger Byers, who found her forever home with dear friends L. and KJ, who were mourning their recently deceased Missy, Queen of the HissyFits.

Casa de Byers reliably informs us:
Ginger came into our family on Jan 17th. She is 7 yrs old and was a one family cat (her people passed on and she got left in their house for three months with not much attention). She is still in shock about coming to our house (so much noise and activity), but it is better for her and us everyday. The dogs really want to meet her, but she is not ready for them - except to deliver loud hisses and spits.
Kudos to you two for adopting an "older" cat in need! Everybody wants kittens because they're cute. Well, look at Ginger here and tell me she's not cute!

Happy Belated Caturday, Ginger, and we know you'll have a long happy stay at Casa de Byers!

Casa de Byers has a long involvement with BADRAP, an organization that rescues pit bulls and pit bull mixes. Apparently, Ginger is not necessarily as thrilled by this as some of us might be.

Lighten up, Ginger. We'll tell you a story. Zoo, who lives at Casa de Byers, is a rescue pit. When we first met him, that huge hunk o'dog spent the entire visit shivering in terror on the couch. Goodness knows what some really scummy people who used to live with him must have done to the poor boy, but lemme tellya - Zoo is just a sweet, scared, caramel-center-soft-as-pudding little doggie, and he's probably scareder of you than you are of him.

Now Nina - Nina's a different story. She's such a little love sponge, she probably doesn't even notice you're there unless you're the reason she's not getting all the attention.

Both of my kitties are shelter cats, and neither one was adopted as a kitten. They're quite cute enough, thank you very much, as a quick click of the 'cat blogging' link in my sidebar will show!

I kinda suspected that about you. %^D

I'm'a check your kitties out as soon as I get these here idiots to stop giving each other the hairy eyeball. This is what happens when you have five, and one of them is a certifiable psycho who thinks he should own the whole bed and can't see or smell too well.
