Cheddar and Ryder

In 2010 I was at the vet and Tails to Tell had a poster up with all of their adoptable kittens on it.  Our 2 cats weren’t very social with each other and  one of them was still a kitten. My husband and I thought, “let’s check out this Tails To Tell and maybe get another kitten”. We drove up to Crossfield, and of course fell immediately in love with all of the Tails to Tell kittens.  We were about to leave when this orange tabby jumped onto my hubbies’ shoulder.  This little orange tabby was adorable.  We went home to consider or options, “do we or do we not adopt?”.  A couple of days later, we ventured up the highway again to Tails to Tell. Immediately, this little orange tabby landed on hubbies’ shoulder. Well, I guess you could say that he picked us. His name was Cheerios. We renamed him Cheddar and he fit into our family like a glove. Cheddar is such a loving kitty. He is always there to love you up and warm your soul. About 7 years ago, I retired and started volunteering for Tails to Tell as I was so taken with Edna, the cats and kittens, and the whole volunteer family. One day, a Snowshoe cat came into the shelter. He was so beautiful, and I am a sucker for blue eyed cats. LOL. Ryder didn’t fair too well at shelter, so I took him home to foster. Needless to say, I was a foster failure. LOL. Unlike our other cats, Ryder is not a lap cat. But, every once in a while, Ryder likes to chill out on my lap. He is a very affectionate cat who rubs our legs all of the time and participates in whatever we do. I thank Tails to Tell every day for bringing these cats into my life.
