Our Furry Friends

We have two cats in our lives. Salem came to live with us in 2004 when she was just a few months old.

Salem LOVES Jesse, tolerates me and hates everyone else. My poor mother-in-law is terrified of Salem. Salem does not have any problem letting you know if she’s not pleased. Jesse says she’s just misunderstood. She’s not afraid of anything, except our cat door. Ha!

Salem loves to eat grass, clean up messes, meow everytime you open the fridge and obsesses about our spider plant.

Our other cat isn’t ours. My brother-in-law’s cat, Soma came to live with us temporarily. That was 2 ½ years ago. She also loves Jesse.

Soma is a very sweet cat. She loves sitting on our sun porch, can sleep anywhere, and always puts the trash she finds in her water bowl.

We recently lost our first pet, Lil’ Hurt a few months ago. Jesse and I adopted him the day he was born and he was a faithful companion for ten years. He loved me the most. Lil’ Hurt would always curl up in your lap, make a motor sound when he walked, cry if he saw the bottom of his food bowl and jump under the sheets when you tired to make the bed. He was a sweet gentle soul that we miss everyday.

Surprisingly Salem and Soma have adjusted very well to Olivia. Of course all Olivia wants to do is play with them, but they run away when she gets to close.
