Memorial Day 2008

Well my hubby and the kitties all spent a nice day at home. Kali made sure we were awake by 4 am, she just doesn't get the concept of sleeping in. Simba is up on the back of my computer chair right now.
My Dad was born in 1925 and he is a WWII vet. He was a ball turret gunner in the B-17 bombers over Europe. He flew in the Battle of the Bulge and many other missions during the war over Germany. I am very proud of him.
I got a cheapie camera yesterday so I can take some videos of the kitties and post them on here. Its going to take a little practice before I get anything worth posting. I also need to learn how to put all the goodies on here. One thing at time.
Mr Mazi just walked past the monitor. I think its time to feed the kitties.

Our Story Begins

In 2005 we fell in love with our 2 Bengals. They were only 10 days old the first time we saw them at our breeders home, at
We fell in love with the little girl, a beautiful brown spotted tabby Bengal and named her Kali. Our plans were to just get one kitty. We had recently lost our tabby of 17 years and our other tabby of 16 years and our sheltie dog of 16 years all within months of each other. We kept going back to visit our little girl kitty as she grew but could not resist being drawn to her brother. We gave in and bought her brother too and named him Mazi.
These 2 are as close as any two cats can be. Mazi is loving and gentle and loves to play. Kali is the fast cat, she's a little fire cracker! She also is loving and she is the head cat of the house.
When they were almost 2 years old, an ad in our local paper appeared for a Savannah that was a year and a half old that they people could not keep because they had just had a baby and did not want to have the cat around the baby. We brought him home and he was already named Simba.
Our Bengals were not happy getting a new addition to the family, but the 2 boys made best of friends. The girl on the other hand has made it her lifes mission to torment the Savannah day and night. She has moments where it seems like she almost plays with him, and some where she ignores him, but mostly she follows him and then decides to beat him up several times a day. Its quite a sight to see. She is 9 lbs and he is 15 lbs. But he lets her rule the house.
