Six Guns Roxy Hart
Hi, all my life I was allergic to cats. I am from Chicago, Il. My husband and I moved to Arizona five years ago. We always had dogs as pets. When our Cairn Terrier passed we vowed no more dogs! One day I am sitting on my stoop and out from under the house next door four kittens emerged.
My heart reached out to one in particular. Mama cat disappeared and her foursome cried for her for days. We were able to catch three of the kittens. Took them to a no kill shelter. The fourth kitten was not to be caught. I bonded with him. After four weeks he felt comfortable with me and let me pet him. Well, I melted!
At this time we had not made the decision to take him into our home. He too went to the shelter. After one night without the kitten, we adopted him. His name is Jr. Jones. He is an DSH orange tabby. His birthday just passed. He is now four years of age.
Three years ago I adopted a ASH silver tabby from a Ca. breeder. Her name is Six Guns Roxy Hart. I can't imagine my live without my cats.
We live in a large house so the cats have lots of room to run and play. They are in-door only!
Yesterday my husband and I attended a cat show in Phoenix, Az. Had a lot of fun. I did not know that you can show non-purebred cats. "Household", I think is their class. Perhaps we can show our cats someday.
Here are some more photos:
