Michelle's loyal buddy for 15 years. She showed up at her door one day and never left her side. She never met a hotdog she didn't love.

? - July, 2011


He showed up on our back porch thin, flee-ridden, and sad looking. Despite our initial efforts to run him off he became the first pet for Donna and I. He was a friendly and loving cat, added personality to the porches, and helped raise our dog, Buford. He succumbed to feline leukemia and was laid to rest in our back yard next to Donna's dog, Quincy.

Tiger was our second cat and a stray. We called him Tiger because of his stripes. For a long time he was unfriendly...with us, Buford, and Grumpy. You could tell in his eyes he was scared but wanted to be loved, and eventually he became friendly. He was a roamer. We'd often see him coming up the driveway returning from an adventure. He loved to have his head rubbed. A few months after Grumpy died Tiger started getting thin and we suspected he had contracted feline leukemia as Grumpy had. On July 26, 2018, we said goodnight to Tiger on the porch. That was the last time we saw him.


Mason was just a kitten when we heard him crying from under the house. Eventually he came out and became part of the family. We called him Mason because he had a design on his side that resembled the Masonic eye. Mason was always friendly and wanted petted to the point of being annoying sometimes. When Shanon moved to Clarksville she took Mason with her. One day he escaped through on open door. Later he was found. He had gotten into a fight with something and lost his life.
