Introducing…Nero and Magic!

So after Yoshi passed away my wife and I decided that we wouldn’t get a new cat for a few weeks or even months. We needed time to recover. So in true Smith family style, three days later we went to the local animal shelter and adopted two kittens! After all, it was National Cat Day!

Here’s Nero:

Happy Birthday, Yoshi!

Over the weekend we celebrated Yoshi’s fifteenth birthday. That may be kinda old for a cat but he looks good and he feels good so we’re looking forward to many more birthdays to come!

National Hug Your Cat Day?

Apparently yesterday was ‘National Hug Your Cat Day’ so Gatsby gave Yoshi a big hug:

Yoshi’s never been much for hugging. So he decided to start a new Holiday: National Strangle Your Cat Day:

Note – No cats were actually strangled in the making of these photos. Yoshi swears that it was just a little cat massage.
