Chica, Cienna, and Cali

Why Chica, Cienna, and Cali is so special:

My husband and I have adopted 3 adult cats from a local shelter in Columbus, Ohio over the last year and a half. Our first, Chica, found my husband. He was playing with other cats when she came from behind and gave him her special head-butt! Our second, Cienna, came home from the same shelter a year later when we wanted to bring home a fur companion for Chica. Our third, Cali, came 3 months later. She is the biological sister of our second and we could not have possibly left her behind.

If your pet could talk, what would he or she tell us about you?:

Our pets started a new blog yesterday to share their story. They are doing this because they think they owe it to their fur friends who were left behind in the shelters waiting to find their happy homes. Please check out their stories at
