This is a living blog post documenting my cats I’ve had since I’ve gotten a smart phone.
All my cats are Cornish Rexes. My mother and grandmother bred Cornish Rexes; to say I grew up with Rexes is an understatement, I slept with kittens in my crib.
Cats in Residence
These are my main kitties, the ones that nap with me every night.
Angelica is a very smol girl. I’ve had her since December 2015. She loves to roll over for belly rubs. Her coat is super soft. She loves to snuggle up against my chest and sleep at night.
I just got Spots 2.0 in Early September 2020 from Trish Blees at AngelWaves in North Carolina. He is a very sweet and rambunctious boy. He is a beautiful specimen, big ears, long legs, long tail, huge nose, a very fine example of the Cornish Rex breed.
We hope he and Angelica bond and keep eachother company once the pandemic is over. She is still warming up to him for now :-)
My Mom’s Cats
These are cats that live with my mom. They are all very near and dear to my heart.
Joker is super affectionate, he loves pets, and playing with string toys. He wears his stylish sweater around the house and loves guests.
Joker was with me the entire time I was in college, he was a great study partner, and he was always so happy to see me after a long day at school.
Spots (In Memorium)
Spots was a very special cat to me. He was very driven by his own motives and instincts. He would patrol the house for small critters to hunt and remind my mom and I to feed his brother. On the rare occasion he would want to be held and be petted. He was always good for a nap with his brother or me.
Spots had the most dignified composure at all times, it was as if he was always posing. In some of these pictures you can see his extremely long tail, he was so creative with how he would tuck it away or wrap it around his paws.
I miss him dearly, but I am glad to have Spots 2.0 to raise and love in his place.

Kugel is my friend Shoop’s cat. Kugel got lost as a baby kitten, and I helped Shoop and others look for her. She found her way back home on the same day I brought Spots 2.0 home. I will always remember Kugel for her elegant looks and the effort so many put into finding her when she was lost.
