Holly
Tabby
Female

Holly was a stray I found outside while picnicking in the park. She got her name because at first she was confused for a male I called "Buddy" but on discovering she was female she became "Holly" after one of my favorite musicians Buddy Holly. While at the park she followed me to where I sat, climbed on my chest, kneaded a bed on my shirt, and took a short nap. During my stay at the park Holly ran off to play at random intervals but always came back. When I attempted to leave Holly followed me step for step to my car and I decided she wanted to come home. Holly was malnourished and so she was very happy to have some food and some warm shelter while I put up posters for a found cat. No one claimed her and so she was formally adopted into my cat family which included an older female named Violet and her kitten, an older male named Mittens. It took several months but eventually all three cats began to accept each other. Holly became particularly attached to Mittens whom she played and napped with frequently. Eventually Violet and Mittens passed on due to old age (21 and 20 respectively) and while sad for the loss of her family members she has come to enjoy being the sole recipient of love and attention. As a kitten (the vet estimated her at age 1 when I found her) Holly was very active and playful running up and down the stairs all day chasing her toys. Though she put on a lot of weight since then, she hasn't lost her playful spirit and still loves to play with toys when engaged. Curiously for a stray she is very friendly and affectionate. She frequently greets visitors by lying down to display her belly for pets and nuzzles arms and legs. Holly has been a blessing to my home and continues to bring love and happiness everyday.

Silver Tabby

Holly is our gorgeous tabby girl who we adopted when she was just a month old. She is the naughtiest out of all the cats and the sleepiest, she often retreats to my bed (I sometimes find her sleeping on my jumpers!) and chitter chatters at the birds!

My name is Holly, my owner''s mom found me abandoned underneath a Christmas tree in a Safeway parking lot, when I was only 6-7 weeks old. Her mom brought me home and I was given a bath, while her mom bought be some food and a bed. But my owner allowed me to sleep with her so I wouldn't be scared anymore, and we bonded. I have some issues, but I am getting better. My owner spoils me and I am very happy.

My daddy and I met one day at PetSmart when I was in an adoption fair. He took me to a private place and I put my head on his leg. He told me he wanted me to go home with him. I did. After that, he sang to me, petted me, comforted me, loved me and fed me pickles. One day, he came home and told me I had a new mommy. I was real sick and needed to be loved more often. My mommy did that. Not long after that, mommy and daddy took me to see the nice lady doctor. She gave me a shot and I fell asleep. When I woke up, I was in heaven. No more sickness. Not long after that, daddy's brother came to live with me. I love Uncle Jerry and he takes care of me until daddy gets here. One more thing... I had throat cancer. And I really miss my daddy.

Holly is a gorgeous (and she knows it!) little girl. Her nickname is squirrel because she loves to squirrel up and snuggle with everyone! She loves to play with all kind of animals especially our friend Ben's schnauzers and horses, Amber's 4 cats and my mom's yellow lab. She loves all people, especially kids. She loves to go for walks and chew her rawhide bones. She is very well-behaved but hates to be by herself- She makes me laugh and smile everyday whether she's wiggling on her back because she has an itch or she's doing her crazy pug run- I love watching her sleep and play and listening to her wacky snore- she is my best friend.
Holly had a brother, the love of my life and my first pug, Jackson. He passes last December and we miss him very much. Words cannot describe what that dog meant to me, but I am very grateful that I had Holly to help me through it.

Holly was a pound puppy. She chose us at about 12 weeks of age. She looks like a little lamb. Her favorite pastimes are swimming, walks on the beach, and wrestling with her brother Hobie.
I have been a little sick lately. Mom and my doctor think I ate some rat poison. I had to get a trasfusion from a friendly Rhodesian Ridgeback. That was awfully nice of him! I'm home now and taking vitamin K. My Mom spoils me rotten now. That doctor was really good to me!

(a.k.a - Holly Berry) I'm just a kitten and I love to climb - that's how I got into trouble - I broke my leg when I fell off my dad's elk head. I had to have surgery to fix my broken leg. I'm doing pretty good now. I'm back to teasing my big sister Angelina the doberman - I love it when she gets in trouble for chasing me! I love water - I like to play in the sink when my mom brushes her teeth - look out cause I like to try and jump in the toilet too!

My mom and dad are always trying to find me - open up a closet and I jump in - I haven't figured out how to talk to let them know where I'm hiding - so I just sit and wait, and wait, and wait......

We got Holly from a shelter a few weeks ago. She is the center of our lives. She's very playful and very intelligent. Already housetrained and is starting to learn basic commands.
