Ziggy
FKA Alan was a forget me not from the AHS Coon Rapids location and is the OG of my current cat gang. We adopted him September 15, 2018. He was estimated to be about 4-years-old at the time. Ziggy looked really rough in the shelter after being found as part of a feral colony, having the tip of his tail shaved to uncover a healed wonky tail tip, and his glorious coat was in rough shape.

Woodbury. Artemis had just come to...

Max was adopted as an attempt to bring some energy back to my older two cats as they've gotten lazy this last year. I also hoped he'd become my boyfriend's buddy as our other two prefer me and the boyfriend feels left out at times lol. Max has been an interesting addition to our house as he came with some behavioral issues that were not disclosed by his previous owners (he likes to chew and scratch and generally be...
