We had 3 wonderful cats - Tuli, Andy, and Smiley. Their names were Tuli, Antennaria (pussytoes), and Smilax Rotundifolia (Cat Briar). Their names thankfully fit them well.
We had another cat that we named Elmer Fudd. He was with us for a short time but we remember him fondly. He is on the In Memory Of page.
We adopted Tuli in April of 2000. He was estimated to be 8 months old at that time. He was a wonderful cat and gave us much to laugh at. He was full of energy and was able to find trouble around every corner!
I worked briefly at a local vet clinic and one day Andy and Smiley were dropped off at the clinic. They were about a week old at the time. They were tube fed at the clinic and then I took them home to bottle feed them. They never left our home. They were born in May of 2000.
Andy was a lover. He used to get into a few fights with Tuli or Smiley but overall, he was a very loving fellow. He was a big cat! Smiley was smaller than his brother, Andy. Smiley was the "prickly" one in the group. He would come for loving when he wanted it. He was better about letting us cuddle with him toward the end of his life.
All of the cats did well with Gabe and Tiki. They often would come and sleep with Gabe on the bed.
Andy passed away on May 17, 2016, due to cancer.
Andy's brother, Smiley, followed him and passed away on June 2, 2016. He also had cancer. They are now both playing, running, and purring together. They were inseparable.
Tuli joined Andy and Smiley on January 19, 2018. Tuli passed from renal disease.
Godspeed my dear friends.
