Ellie Mae: In pictures!

For those of you who follow us on Facebook, you already know about the addition of sweet Ellie Mae to our family (welcome, first additional picture, second additional picture). We hope you'll forgive us for taking a break from blogging on Tuesday as we adjust to being a two cat household, wrangle roundworms and rogue flea treatments, along with the random family crisis. Things have been interesting to say the least. Without further ado ... our precious princess, Ellie Mae!


My Momma's THE BEST thing EVER!!! ~Ellie Mae






My Daddy's THE BESTEST thing EVER! ~Ellie Mae




My toys are pretty cool! ~Ellie Mae



My brother's NOT! ~Ellie Mae
{Though his food is tastier than my own!!! And he promised to teach me how to play a game called, "I'm the shark!"}





I guess I'm going to stick it out here for awhile. I couldn't be loved more; I knew it from the first time I saw my new Momma ... we exchanged a look of acknowledgement that we belong together.  ~Ellie Mae


Final note ... in our visits with the cats of All Paws Rescue, we also fell in love with Allie, a kitty who had problems adjusting when her people got a new puppy. She's older (eleven), declawed in the front, and she'd probably prefer to be an only kitty or share a home with an older friendly kitty (this is why we couldn't adopt her ... Bear has a history). We'd love if you could help us get her adopted!!! She's VERY loving and affectionate - and looking for someone to cherish her for the rest of her life. Please, please get the word out about this beautiful girl! Here's the link to her profile: Allie, and to All Paws Rescue.

  1. Well how do you do, Ellie Mae. I reckon you couldn't pick a finer family, Mom Dad and Big Bro to be with. Now tell me, have you seen any aliens or tasty chickens yet? I hear tell them chickens are very elusive but well worth the wait.

    PS I think you and Bear should go on a world tour and visit all Bears fans along the way. I'll have the drawbridge down and a warm welcome for you both.... warm tasty chickens, and chilled nip and cream.

  4. Welcome to your forever home, beautiful Ellie Mae! What a lovely name, by the way. And you are one lucky ladycat, with such a purrfect family. I know you two are still adjusting to each other, but I love seeing how close in proximity you and Bear already get to each other. I think a true bond is forming there, and you two will be snuggling in no time (not that you'd ever let the camera see that)! Not to mention how fun it is to have a playmate.

    Purrs to all of you! And we will share Allie's story and purr that she'll be in her forever home sooner than soon!

  14. AMARULA: Sweet God Bear! You poor mancat! How have you allowed this creature who is invading your territory to go on breathing!?! I feel for you! The human, of course, is busy cooing about how sweet the interloper seems to be and is overjoyed at the news. Stupid human!

    1. I'm so glad you understand, Amarula! I try not to be cruel ... but a cat can only be pushed so far. If she ever even THINKS of sharing my hexagon of peace and happiness, she'll regret it. We should run away together and forget all about stupid siblings! ~Bear Cat

  19. I love each and every one of these pictures. I was so happy when I saw your post on FB. Ellie Mae is precious and clearly so happy to be with you guys. I know things have been stressful but it truly will get better. I remember how stressful it was when we adopted Pierrot. It took some time but things have been great for a long time. Anyway, she is just a doll. I love seeing Bear with her. It definitely looks promising. I sure hope Allie gets a very loving home. What a dear.

    1. We're so completely head over heels in love with Ellie. After how Bear was a pain to Kitty, I said no to trying two cats again ... but Ellie Mae and I truly connected. As much as I tried to minimize it, I wanted to love her forever more :)

  21. Oh my gosh, she looks like such a little loving sweetie!! Congratulations! It's always stressful to add a new family member, but in time it's all forgotten as everyone adjusts. I'm so happy for you...it's clear you knew you were meant for each other.

  22. Bear, I think you were expecting a tasty chicken, NOT a cat infiltrating on your tasty chicken!! That being said, Ellie Mae is GORGEOUS! We are happy for Mama and "The Boy!" You look a tad concerned (as I would be!) We are on Facebook but are rarely there "live", so we didn't know til now!! WELCOME ELLIE MAE! You have a wonderful mama and a wonderful home!! xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

    Allie is so pretty, and sounds like really nice kitty. Does All Paws Rescue use social media? We will go and check, and if so, we will share her.

    Hugs to you all.

  26. Ellie Mae is a beauty! Winky winks! Bear, I told my human that I thought MK might be bringing home a new kitty after her visits to the shelter. What do you think of your new sisfur? Maybe you can have hunt for whole chickens?! This means the playing field is now balanced - 2 kitties vs. 2 humans! That could be a good thing! And, now that there is a distraction for The Boy, maybe that means you'll have your momma more to yourself! Paw pat on your momma's back for opening her home to a former shelter kitty. Mew Mew!

  29. In the words of John Oliver..."Welcome, welcome, welcome!" What a gorgeous girl. But I don't think she can be a shark like Bear...but she could be a panther. Kudos to you and your 'boy' for rescuing a sweetie. We will keep our paws crossed that Allie finds her fur-ever home soon! ❤︎

  30. Oh em squee!!! Ellie Mae is so adorable and I love, love, love the snuggling shots of Ellie and Momma Kat! I'm so happy that you guys adopted her. She ended up in the perfect forever home. Especially with a big bro who can teach her the "I'm the shark!" game. Congratulations and sending hugs to Ellie Mae! (Don't be jealous, Bear. You get a hug, too.)

  31. Welcome Ellie May! MK you just tell Bear that he could have it a lot worse than one little girl kitty. He could live in a house with even more kitties and fosters like my Bear does. No, he does not like it either. I am beginning to wonder if it is the name?
