Calvin and Bogey

Congratulations on winning your $1,000 grant! I wanted to send you an update on the boys we adopted from you. We adopted Bogey and Calvin back in January of this year. We aren't sure of their birthday but we figure it is around the end of September so we decided to share our wedding anniversary with them, September 20.

They are wonderful cats, and are still very kittenish, even though they have gotten up to close to 12 lbs. Still playing and chasing each other around the house. They are very loving and love to snuggle up on the couch. Being brothers they are very close and never too far from each other. Their favorite place is on the couch with us. Since they have grown we all don't fit so well and they end up taking over, (wouldn't want to disturb a sleeping cat) so one of us moves to the love seat.

Calvin out cold

Calvin loves to sleep on his back and have his belly rubbed, as you can see in the pictures he is very furry! He is really good about being brushed but once in a while he will nibble on your hand like corn on the cob, it is too cute. Bogey is the protective brother, always watching out for Calvin.

Calvin and Bogey hunting

They love to sit at the patio doors and watch the chipmunks run around the patio. I think the chipmunks know they can't get out so they sit and torment them. Needless to say, I am having pet proof screens installed this winter on the screen doors.


Thank you so much for everything you do. Calvin & Bogey have given us so many laughs and much happiness.
