Mama found out that her next door neighbor was gonna have to leave for possibly a couple months recently. While her young son could go with her mom the cats couldn't and would have to stay home. So mama volunteered without even batting an eye and made sure she gave her mom her number so that the kid could call and check on his kitties whenever and her mom could be alerted when supplies we're getting low. Well neighbor forgot to ensure mama knew she left, son forgot to remind grandma to tell our mama, and the poor kitties went 4 DAYS without human contact! When they finally called mama, she was already almost home so she raced the rest of the way and went straight over. Mama doesn't think they were out of supplies too long but still. Both kitties seem to be ok, and mama is relieved.
So without further ado, we introduce the super-shy, super-skittish Rico and the attention-demanding diva Lilly! That's Lilly on the right.
