Onyx and Sheeba - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Cat

Adopted from Animal Protective Association of Missouri, Saint Louis, MO.

We recently lost our beloved Smokey of 16 years on December 13, 2013. He was the last of the three cats we had while my children were growing up. Now my children are all grown up and the house became to quite. On January 18, 2013 my husband and I went to the APA here in St. Louis, MO. We went in for only one kitty. First we met Onyx a beautiful black Bombay kitty but then we also saw Sheeba a beautiful Grey tiger stripe, an Egyptian Mau kitty. It was love at first sight for all of us. Went in for just one but came home with two.

We are so grateful we met. and so are the kitties.

Thanks Petfinder and APA for your help.
