Happy Tails: Elvira

As if 2020 weren’t bad enough,  we lost our adorable baby Pumpkin.  Our hearts were broken.  Enter Elvira – a cute,  playful,  happy little foster.  Already having two other kitties of our own and not wanting to replace Pumpkin,  we were content to foster “Baby Bira “, as she affectionately…

Our family loves cats, especially those big orange and white male domestic shorthairs. In our experience, they are everything one could ask for in a cat. (There are special angels in kitty heaven named Spencer and Quincy that gave us that experience.) We weren’t really looking for a kitten last…
