    What a lovely family you have Zylona. :-D Xanna, Snickers and Anna have certainly found a loving home with you. I'm so pleased to hear that they are all rescued pets as so often people ignore animals like these in favour of expensive pedigrees. You must show us more photographs of them as we do sooo love animal piccies. :D

    Beautiful pets Xylona, you must tell us more about their personalities. Who is the most mischievous?

    They're lovely, all three! I'm so glad you adopted them. Both our cats are strays that just moved in. I wouldn't trade them for anything. :stew2:

    Well Snickers is the most mischevious for sure! She gets into absolutely everything.
    Anna is extremely shy until she gets to know you, then she becomes a normal pain in the neck. She becomes the biggest attention hog on the planet. She is definitely a "me, me, me" kind of girl, once she is comfortable with you.
    Snickers and Anna were also a team when left in the house by themselves. Snickers would run across our desks, coffee tables, and windows, knocking off everything she could. Once it hit the floors, Anna thought it was free game and it got chewed on, shredded and/or eaten. Unfortunately due to this and some other problems we have had with Snickers, she has now been relegated to the laundry room and outside.
    Xanna is the most quiet, although she was quite strange when we first adopted her. We believe she was a lab cat before we got a hold of her. She has "097" tattooed in one ear and "010" tattooed in the other. She also did not feel comfortable if she wasn't in a box, or under a bed...although our kitchen cabinets were her favorite place to be. She has since relaxed and lays on my husband's chair about 23 of the 24 hours out of a day. She gets up to do her bathroom duties, eat, and then it is back to lounging in the chair for her. :)

    They are all beautiful. Sounds like they are all much better off with you. It's great to have people like you to help them out. It's so heart breaking to me when I find out an animal has been negelected or abused. I wish I could adopt them all but that just can't happen. You get a patt on the back for your rescues. Thanks for sharing.
