“Pumpernickel (a.k.a. Nicky) just wants to be in the mix. He was adopted with his brother and sister, but quickly stood out as the chocolate velvet star. He coos like a pigeon when announcing himself, has a high-pitched meow for when he’s hungry, and a deep purr when he’s properly attended to. As kitty parents we recently came to realize that often his agitated whining isn’t for food or treats, but to be held in our arms where he purrs contentedly as he looks out from high above his kingdom. He is only five months old but already seeking big adventures. We hope we can keep him on his toes, and that, even when he’s all grown, he still lets us baby him from time to time.”

“Even though she looks like a full-blooded Siamese, Kitkat was an alley rescue cat along with two siblings who don’t look anything like her. She used to sit on my shoulder when she was a kitten when I was working from home. She loves people and will welcome them to our house by brushing their leg and angling for some petting or a scratch behind the ears.”
