A celebration of the kitties (and their friends) of the CatBlogosphere in verse.

Charlotte joined Henry and Clyde in November of 2007. She had been hanging around with Clyde outside the Lady's place of work, but the Lady thought that she had a home. When she found out that the neighbor lady was just feeding her, she brought Charlotte home to join the family. Like Henry and Clyde, Charlotte has no front claws. Some really cruel person or persons declawed Clyde and Charlotte, then eventually dumped them outside to fend for themselves. Because of the way that Clyde and Charlotte hung around together and the fact that they seemed to recognize each other when Charlotte was brought home, it is possible that they were both dumped by the same person. When Charlotte was introduced to the family, there was only a tiny bit of hissing on Charlotte's part at Henry, but within a couple of hours, they were all snuggled up together napping. Charlotte loves giving Clyde and Henry baths. Clyde likes it, but Henry's not too sure about it. Sometimes he just gets up and leaves before Charlotte is finished. Charlotte doesn't react to catnip, though she still enjoys playing with the catnip mice. Charlotte is a bit on the shy side. She likes to hide under the bed. The first time she met Mar, she was afraid of him and hid in the basement. She hid so well that Senor and the Lady had a very hard time finding her. She's not afraid of Mar any more. She has decided that Senor has the most comfortable lap and will jump up into his lap and demand scritches by pushing his hand with her head. She will do the same thing to the Lady, but Senor has become her new favorite.
Charlotte is retiring and shy. When the boys fight, she wonders why. She prefers a lap Warm enough to nap. She lives a quiet life, being so shy.
