Cali Mae and Cali, Jr. (as a kitten)
Do you see Cali's floofy tail? (She apparently likes to hold up sticks with it...)
CJ has Cali's coloring, but is short haired and no floofyness!
Camouflage Cali hiding
Whoops, there she is!
About six months ago Cali Mae stopped showing up for feeding, and after a week we knew she wasn't coming back. She was the sweetest kitty and I can only hope that she found a loving home, or perhaps went to the Rainbow Bridge without pain and met up with others who have gone before her. (Remember, no tears! Smiles for her, please!!)

CJ on the left, Yellow Kitty and Funny Face
(Funny Face is still with us and is the patriarch of the family)
I love this sweet pic of the adult CJ
It's been a couple of weeks since we saw CJ, so I can only assume that she has followed in her mom's pawsteps. She was a feisty one, always on the lookout and never one to be petted. Even so, we still had tender feelings for her and enjoyed her time with us.
She was a good mother to her kittens -- they live in our yard now and are the sweetest, allowing us to pet them, even pick them up! and circling our legs the way cats do.
CJ's kittens: Phantom, Golden Marmalade, Opera, Thunder Paw, Oreo
Snoozing on the shed steps.
Woke them up!
(did you catch Phantom and Opera? heh heh, you can see Opera's mask and Phantom's is the same and their coloring is exactly like CJ's!
CJ in all her kitty cuteness....
Always with that worried expression on her face!
Cali with those piercing yellow-green eyes,
Both such sweet kitties. Even though we will miss them, we have lots of funny and touching memories to think back on....
sharing Cali and CJ....
