Two rescue cats we got from a shelter and through our family vet. We received them just as Hurricane Irene was bearing down on Maryland a couple of weeks ago...
Lucy is around age ten and is a large sweet chestnut cat. Desi is age seven and a much bigger cat. He was originally named Chris, and that wouldn't do obviously. The vet tells us she saved him after he was found skeletal and hairless. Now that his fur has grown back he is a beautiful big tabby with nice white markings.
Here are a few close-up portraits as well as the two of them at their feeding bowls.
