Cats, cats, cats

 We had three cats when we moved to Kaaawa in 1988. Since then, we've discovered one of the facts of life outside the city--there are lots of cats to rescue. And we have rescued more than our share. Others have apparently spotted a good thing and just decided to move in. Right now we've got nine cats, although that number has varied over the years. Each one has a story. All are dearly loved, despite their personality flaws. Please enjoy these photos and the stories of those now departed. Just click on any of the links below.
