It's Caturday!

It's that time of week again when we get to kick back, relax, and learn more about some truly pawesome kitties from across the country (and sometimes even from around the world!).

This week, I'm excited to get you up close and personal with reader Kait's two furry phenoms, Molly and Franklin! Happy Caturday, friends!

Good Golly, Miss Molly!

"Precious little face!"

Kait writes:

"This is my adorable baby, Molly. I adopted her from the Washington Humane Society in 2008 (can't believe it's been that long!) I had recently moved into a new apartment, and living halfway across the country from my family and furry siblings, I was missing the cuddles. My best friend was a volunteer at the shelter, and she suggested we take off after work that afternoon and go by the shelter. I was too excited to wait, and ended up browsing the shelter's website to get a sneak peek. A newly listed cat jumped out at me, and I just melted. Her mis-matched eyes and her precious little face! I hoped to get to meet her. Upon our arrival, we were taken to see the cats available for adoption. Since it was the middle of the afternoon, everyone was quite contentedly napping... except for Molly. The moment she saw people in the room, she started purring up a storm and doing her best to appear adorable. We took her upstairs to the playroom to get acquainted, and I fell completely in love. I filled out my paperwork, and the very next weekend my boyfriend and I drove over to pick her up."

"She is the sweetest kitty I have ever met, and her favorite place to be is where the people are. Once, while we were watching Star Trek, Molly took notice of a rat running across the screen on the show. I mentioned it to my boyfriend, who insisted she wasn't, and backtracked to play the scene again. After three or four replays, Molly leaped from the bed to the desk, trying to catch the rat on the screen. Unfortunately, she collided with my boyfriend's bowl of cereal and glass of V8 juice, which ended up all over him, her, and the carpet. I was laughing so hard I was crying."

Molly is a stunner, and it sounds like she has quite a personality too! Also, a white cat and red tomato juice?? I imagine the scene looked a bit like this:


Sweet Molly might be her baby, but Kait also has a "furry sibling" back home, and she spilled the beans about this loving guy too!

She continues:

"Next up is my family's cat, Franklin. My sister adopted him after her other cat turned up missing. When Franklin was a baby, he liked to sleep on top of people's heads, like a hat. He especially liked sleeping with me on my visits home, because I would take my sister's top bunk, and of course being up high is just the best."

Ready for his close-up!

"On one of my visits home, I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed. It was not a pleasant business, and I was heavily medicated for the first few days after the surgery. Because of this, I had to sleep on the bottom bunk, I couldn't lie on my side at all, and if I tried to get out of bed on my own I'd bounce off the walls like a pinball while trying to walk straight. Luckily, my mom had taken off work for the first couple of days after the surgery, and my boyfriend had flown down with me and was working remotely."

"Apparently sensing that I needed constant monitoring, Franklin and our dog, Woodrow, became my bed nurses. Woodrow laid across my legs, Franklin laid on top of my chest, and if I tried to dislodge one or the other to get up, Woodrow would go straight to the nearest person to report by running in circles and barking and whining while Franklin dug in and attached himself to the blankets or my sweatshirt, making himself as much a nuisance as possible. Since then, Franklin has kept growing and is now the size of a beagle."

I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed two years ago, so I know the painful recovery process, and it's beyond sweet that Franklin teamed up with doggy pal Woodrow to nurse her back to health!

Molly and Franklin truly are a precious pair, and I'm so grateful to Kait for sharing them with us this week!
