We adopted Lacey on October 28, 1996 when she was 8 weeks
old. She is a sweetheart and can always be
found in whatever part of the house her family is currently
hanging out in. For example, she is sleeping on the floor
in front of my feet under the computer desk as I type this!
She faithfully sits on the back of our couch and watches
through the picture window for me to come home from work
each afternoon and as soon as she sees my car pull into the
driveway, she races to the door and is waiting for me when
I come in.
Rambo was also 8 weeks old when we adopted him on
May 25, 2001. He is a sweetheart too but is also a tad
more active than Lacey was even as a kitten...not that
she did and does not find her share of trouble.
He loves to fight/bite play with Lacey or cuddle with
her when he is not annoying her. He is totally fascinated
by water...the sound...the look...everything! He is especially
fascinated by the sounds that come from the toilet! It is
hilarious to see him burst into the bathroom as soon as he
hears somebody in there.....then he has to watch them "go"
(if they are male)...then watch the flushing action...and
then after the lid is down, he has to try to see through
the crack and attempt to stick his paws through it. :-) Now he also
greets me at the door all squinty-eyed and stretching, but only
because Lacey was running there first and woke him up from his
Now when Rambo first came to live with us, Lacey was totally
terrified of him. She refused to even be on the same floor as
he was! I could not believe that a full grown cat would be
scared of this tiny little furball! Things were a bit stressful
for a while. Finally about two weeks after he came home, Jer
called for me to come upstairs, and I saw that they were play
fighting! It was so cool. As time went by, I could see Lacey
learning more moves and getting adjusted to the whole concept
of having a live playmate. Now, they chase each other around
and play all the time. Although there are times when Rambo
does not know when to quit and Lacey has to set him straight! LOL
