About Nancy

Welcome to my Cat Corner Page. As soon as I created it, I felt like it was the right thing to do.

My name is Nancy and I’m a software trainer by day. My hubby and I don’t have any human kids, but we have 8 fur babies (Jill, Jack, Dora, Onyx, Minnie, Magic, Houdini, Luke and Queso). They were all strays and they are all black or black and white. We did have a theme until Queso came along. He’s an orange and white kitty. Everyone else is black or black and white.

Our second youngest, Luke, was adopted when we were at the vet. We had brought in 2 of our kitties for their yearly physical and a guy brought in a black and white kitten looking for a home. He was going to take him to the pound if no one wanted him.  Needless to say, we went to the vet with 2 kitties and came home with 3.  🙂

I enjoy our kitties so much and am always looking for new products for them and am interested in hearing about your kitties as well.

If you have any questions or want to share some pictures of your “babies” I would love to see them.

For your viewing pleasure, here is a picture of Luke right after we adopted him. 🙂

  1. Oh, you guys are wonderful to take care of so many kitties! My husband and I have 4 and all are rescues. They are all part of the family and have settled in nicely over the years.

    We have a sweet orange tabby boy, a smart, dignified French Chartruex girl, a loyal, doglike Norwegian Forest cat boy and a little, spunky calico girl. She was the most recent addition and we adopted her at 14 years old. She is amazingly energetic and plays like a young cat. She is smart and sweet and drools when she gets loves. This worried us in case there was something wrong with her teeth but the vet said her teeth are good and she just drools with happiness! She seems healthier than our others even though she is the oldest. It is hard to believe nobody wanted her due to her age.

    Our cats are our kids and we adore them. Our love and patience has been rewarded with unconditional love and happy kitties. Right now one is sleeping behind me on the back of my chair and two are on the couch happily sleeping with my husband. They have all overcome different issues from being abandoned or left at shelters.

    I am very happy to find your site! I have a cat site as well where I review health and behavior products for cats. I am always thrilled to find cat sites that promote good care for our fur babies.

    1. Jessica,
      Thank you so much for visiting.
      You and your husband are amazing for taking in an older cat. I would do that. One of our kitties (he has passed away), but he had FIV and we didn’t think twice about bringing him into the household. He also had all of his bones in his paw broken. Our vet was amazing and set his paw in a cast and the bones grew back together. We decided to name him Bones. 🙂 (I’ll be writing an article about that guy in the future).
      Our cats are our kids as well. They were all strays, in fact, 2 of the last 3 came from the same area. (A restaurant near our house). I wish we had a bigger house so we could have more. 🙂
      I will be checking out your site as well. We have to stand up together for our feline friends.

  2. Thank you Nancy! It is so nice to find a kindred spirit. Not many people have so many rescued kitties!

    Sorry I didn’t see your comment on my site. I have been super busy and sick lately. I am thrilled to be connected with you and your furry babies!

    All of our kitties were named already when we got them but we have given them all “pet” (ha ha) names. Our French Chartreux girl had a Russian name that means “kitten”. We don’t know if she was in a Russian family before we got her. She seemed miserable for a long time until one day I said her original name (we had tried to change it) and she was so happy that I knew her name! Then I realized she may have been from a Russian speaking home and had no idea what we were saying! Now she seems to know what we are saying but it made me aware of how we have to consider where our rescued pets come from.

    Our 14 year old calico girl was the opposite. She seemed to have no interest in her former name though she had lived in one home her whole life. I suspect her name was not what they actually called her everyday. We have changed her name to Sweet Pea and she seems fine with that. It was previously Sphinx which seemed much to harsh for such a cute little girl.

    1. Hi Jessica,
      Thanks for visiting.
      That is so interesting thinking about where our kitties lived before and taking that into account. Your kitty was probably patiently waiting to hear her name and didn’t hear it. LOL, I’m glad that she is happy with her “old” name.
      Sweet Pea is a cute name. 🙂
      Glad that you made it here and I’ll be checking out your site as well!
