Now for our kids. First is the baby Xena. She is the youngest but is HUGE. She is such a help when I'm brushing my teeth. We got her as a playmate for Kalliope. She is now 3 times Kalliope's size.
Next is Kalliope. She is the perfect cat, according to Bill. She was adopted from the Montgomery County Humane Society.
Mr. Rusty is Diana's cat. Diana, Bill's sister, rescues all kinds of animals, dogs, cats and whatever else she finds. Mr. Rusty is about 15 and came to our house after Hurricane Rita hit and he had to evacuate his house. Bill just loved him and asked Diana if he could stay.
This is Scarlett. She was adopted with Kalliope. She is about 6 years old. Her owner had to give her up. We suspect it was an older woman. Scarlett wants to be an only child. She hates the other cats, but is really sweet if she is alone. So if you know anyone that wants an only cat. She is very loving.
This is Ariel. Ariel is now Dariel's cat. Our neighbors had a friend that found Ariel in their attic. She was very dehydrated when we got her, but Ellen fed her by bottle till Dariel came to visit and then we couldn't pry her out of Dariel's fingers. So she moved to Austin. She is the cutest thing and is described as the energizer bunny.
More on the rest of the animals later.
