We decided that we missed having cats around the house, so Saturday we went to Operation Kindness, the local no-kill shelter, and adopted a couple of adorable cats.

Jackson was brought to Operation Kindness as a stray on February 23, 2014, with an estimated age of 1.5 years. He's a partial tabby (white with brown tabby spots), 10.19 lbs with a short coat. He's a very tall cat, and very loving. He has taken to following me around the house.

Léonie was originally transferred to Operation Kindness from a different shelter in May 2013 with her siblings. She has lived almost her whole life in a shelter, but she's got an amazingly sweet and calm disposition. Her birthdate is approximately 4/22/2013, so she's not quite a year old. She is extremely timid, but loves being petted. We think it's a product of living in a shelter cage for so long.
