An Allie Cat In Our House
We have a new cat in our family and it was given to us by our next door neighbor, Tricia. Her name is Allie and we have started calling her Allie Cat. Our neighbor had 20 cats and had to move from her home next door to a one bedroom apartment and had to find new homes for all her cats. She was able to take one with her. So we took Allie but it took her awhile to adjust to us and our dog, Katie, a peek-a-poo. In the above picture she sleeping in my big recliner.
After the above picture was taken, Allie Cat woke up and jumped down and stood in the dining for Marian to take her picture.
A good close-up of Allie Cat.
She has found my bedroom and loves this spot on top my pillow. I guess you might say, it did not take her long to take over our house. I think we will enjoy having her. She is only 3 years old. We did have a cat, Billy Bob, a bobtail tabby point cat and he was huge. He lived about 14 years and died on 9/11 a few years ago. We have really missed him. He was a kitten when he accidentally left his mom next door and wandered over into our yard. Marian found him in the ivy meowing near the driveway. He was named after myself and a friend of ours, Billy Boykin.
