We have two cats of our own, plus assorted neighbor cats that come to enjoy the only dog-free yard in the neighborhood. Our two cats are sisters, born around late May 1989. They are both "big ten-pound kitties" and were named for jazz vocalist and pianist Mose Alison.
Mose, the black cat, is the dominant of the pair. She is sleek and trim, with a triangular face; her only white hairs form a sparse ring around her neck. She is talkative and demanding. In fact, she's probably annoying me right now.
Ally, the round-faced tortoiseshell, is sweet but dumb. She's not a very bright cat, but she is affectionate. Her sister beats on her regularly, but occasionally she gets her own in.
Orange Kitty is the neighborhood stray who has found food and tolerance on our front porch. Orange kitty sleeps on the roof.
