The polar air has us finding excuses to work indoors. Vir (top) and Galen (bottom) decided that snoozing in a warm spot until the weather changes is the best course of action!
Vir’s full name is Vir Catto, after Vir Cotto, a character in the Babylon-5 fictional universe. His mother was a Philadelphia stray taken in by a friend. When the kittens came, we had an opening for another cat, so added Vir to the family. His mother was a tiny thing, but due to the wonders of pre-natal nutrition, both Vir and his brother are very large cats!
Galen is named after the Greek physician and after a Technomage in the Babylon-5 universe. He helped heal our hearts after our elder kitty, Lindsey Valen, died at 17 years old. He was found in Bechtelsville, PA at about 4 weeks old with an upper respiratory infection and nursed back to health by the rescue society, Cat NAPS of Pottstown. If you live in the area and are looking for a kitty companion or two, we highly recommend Cat NAPS.
Meanwhile, stay warm and be sure to snuggle with someone you love!
