Weekend Cat Blogging #33

This is Chubbie. So called because she is, well, on the big-boned side. We also call her Marge, a la Large Marge from Pee Wee's Big Adventure.

She enjoys snuggling, binge eating, and puking on our slipcovered furniture in the middle of the night, and then coming upstairs to jump on us in bed, while purring loudly in apology.

Chubbie is mom to our two other cats, Claudia and Louie. Eight years ago she was found as a stray and taken to a local vet's office by a friend of a woman I used to work with. The vet discovered she was pregnant, so they kept her there until she gave birth. The woman I worked with then posted to our company bulletin board about the availablity of five kittens for adoption (the woman who found Chubbie was originally going to keep her). Two of my friends and I went down to the vets, and one friend decided to take home the all-black kitten, and I opted for a pair of kittens who were hugging eachother in the back of the cage. We would return in a few weeks once the kittens were weaned.

When it came time to bring the kittens home, I returned to the vet to pick them up only to find out that the woman who had wanted to take home Chubbie had changed her mind. I couldn't take her last two kittens away from her and leave her in the cage all alone, so Chubbie came home with us too. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Head on over to Clare's, our charming host for WCB, to see other photos of adorable kitties.

    That is one relaxed looking cat! I think it's sweet of you to have adopted mama and babies. You have a kind heart.
