Meet the cats!

All of our cats are rescue cats (except for Potter). Since Stefano and I got married, 21 years ago!, we’ve rescued only cats or kittens who were in need or in danger or sick…

Here are their names and ages, from the eldest to the youngest:

  • Pavarotta, 16-17 years old.
  • Peekaboo, 13 years old.
  • Pinga, 11 years old.
  • Prezzemolo, 8 years old.
  • Pixie and Pandora, sisters, adopted 3 years ago.
  • Potter, almost 4 months old (tomorrow).

Except for the youngest three cats and for Peekaboo (who was born in a neighbor’s yard), we don’t have exact birth DATES for Pavarotta, Pinga, and Prezzemolo.

Based on what the vet told us, therefore, we assigned random birthdays to these three cats, but, especially in Pavarotta’s case (this will be made clearer when I write her story), the dates could be off by a matter of months…indeed, in her case, even by an entire year…or so. 

You may have noticed that their names all begin with the letter “P.” That’s sort of a “tradition” that began by chance with our first two cats (who are no longer with us, unfortunately): Puzzola and Piccolo, see photo. I mean, we didn’t actually plan to use only “P” names. It just happened. 

And that’s it for today!
