Cuddly Kitties...

Allow me to introduce my lovely girls...

Tiggy is the tabby one
Shadow is black and white

Here they are having cuddles and being extremely adorable!
(a common occurrence)
We set out one sunny Saturday morning in late September last year to get a letterbox for our house...

...We came home with kitties!

We adopted Tiggy and Shadow from the AAPS Keysborough Animal Shelter. They care for cats, dogs, bunnies, guinea pigs and other strange and wonderful creatures while they wait for a new home and a loving family to adopt them.
The passion and warmth of the staff and volunteers is immeasurable.
They are a non-profit organization and rely on donations and sales from their opportunity shops to keep the shelter running.
I advise anyone in the area to donate their unwanted towels, blankets and newspapers to them, and for anyone who shops at Ritchies IGA Supermarkets, take a moment to put them on your Community Benefit Card, as a little goes a long way for giving these loyal companions a voice when they cannot speak for themselves.

Shadow and Tiggy love to cuddle!
If we're not paying attention, Shadow will paw our arm until we pat her.
Tiggy always lets me know that her bowl is empty or her water needs a top up with a long winded "Meooooow!" and a glance from her big, pretty eyes.

They are about 4 years old. We think their owner fell ill and couldn't return to feed them, so they were taken to the shelter by a family member and put up for adoption.

I think they are very grateful for having been adopted,
and we feel blessed to have found them!

Heaven is a kitty...
...napping on your lap.

P.S. Happy Birthday to my darling fiance!
I made pancakes for him this morning...

Happy Day!
