My name is Pam and Hemingway and Shakespeare are the two fur people in my life.
Hemingway was born on December 24, 2009 and my good friend, Linda, and I picked up from the Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley, MN on February 25, 2010. He is a Tuxedo cat with the typical black and white markings. He has incredible fur that is very shiny and soft. As of April 2011 he weighed 17.7 pounds so he is a BIG kitty. I call him my “Gentle Giant” because he has this incredible ability to show such a soft, caring side. He has a very quiet purr that only I get to hear. He was very happy with his new home and then suddenly on June 25, 2010 I surprised him with a little brother.
Shakespeare entered my life on June 25, 2010 which happened
to be a stormy summer night. Once again Linda was with me as we headed out to the Humane Society in Woodbury, MN. I had requested a long-haired orange tabby and they said they had one for me to see. Storms were rolling in like crazy and as we were driving over there, both of us thought we were crazy. When we got to the building we dashed inside but we were still dripping as we walked up to the counter. They brought a little bundle of orange fur in for me to play with. He was very active and very inquisitive……..and very cute!!! So, Shakespeare came home with me that night. He was born on March 22, 2010 and is extremely proud of his super long, super fluffy tail. When the vet first met him, she looked at him and said, “Are you going to grow into that tail?” He is smaller than Hemingway, but he can put another animal or human in their place, if he wants to. He has a very loud purr and he lets go with it quite frequently. He loves to be petted, but hates to be held. He is my independent little guy!!
These two have lots of opinions and lots to say so I decided to let them have their own forum. I hope you enjoy getting to know them as they talk about their world.
