"We had to euthanize our beautiful Ruby on March 1, 2006, and Daisy on June 12, 2007."
Goldie won the catatonic category. Hard as it is to believe from his hefty image in the photo, he was scrawny when he first strayed into Alice Blain's yard in 2007. She had an old cat and didn't need another, but went ahead and fed the newcomer. She asked around the neighborhood but no one claimed him. The next day, another cat showed up and seemed quite friendly with the first.
The veterinarian determined the two were probably from the same litter, so she adopted them both.
Goldie leads a balanced life of play and relaxation. He chases squirrels but never gets close enough to catch any, and enjoys the comfort of his special chair in the living room.
"All in all, I'm glad he came to my house," Blain wrote.
Caesar, wearing a little tie, won the comical cat category. The 3-year-old orange Tomcat was adopted from Wendy's Feline Friends in Colonial Beach. As stated by Holli Sheddan, his "human staff," he spends his days sleeping, chasing his sister, Bella, and enjoying treats, catnip and feather toys.
Lulu was born on Easter 2011, but wore her Halloween costume to win the holiday antics category. She lives with Peggy Lengyel, who wrote that Lulu loves chasing the other household cats, Bella and Olive.
