My Family Album


introducing SOMe of my family members

(past and present…)

Gwen   Truly a princess, loved and spoiled by us all, and the inspiration behind the Miss Kitty Poppins logo. After a long day at work or school, we always looked forward to cuddles when I came home.

Victoria   I saw her with her wing outstretched and dragging along - when she saw me she dashed under a parked car. My mom and I eventually captured her, brought her back home and patched her up. Victoria refused to be tamed and eventually flew away to find her future husband.

Jack   This handsome love bug’s name was inspired by  Jack and the Beanstalk.  Yes, he was a little kitten caught up a tree! He loves roaming in the back yard, hunting lizards and bringing them gently to you, unharmed. The sweetest little man, we love our Jackie.

Gypsy   If Alice is the queen, Gypsy is the incoming princess. Another rescue kitty, she is still in the process of being comfortable and trusting, but has made incredible progress. She’s really into kisses and cuddling on a warm blanket with a toy nearby (she loves her little toy I got her from Ikea!)

Padme   My mom was a teaching assistant when she found a little kitten running around the school yard. Eventually she was able to catch her by the scruff of the neck, take her home, and name her Padme. She was an extremely skittish cat, but absolutely loved being loved.

(L to R) Sirus, Rioux & Kashmir   My dad noticed someone dumping two black lab puppies off down the street before they drove off. The pair of brothers ran right up to my dad and that was that. Rioux was dumped near a local airport and my mom spent weeks gaining his trust with food and water before he would come out from beneath some construction material. All three have passed on but their lives were well lived and full of love.

Alice   This little lady was hiding under the engine of a car, scared and hungry. We brought her home where she met Blue and it was love at first site! He immediately treated her just like a daughter, grooming her and sharing his food. The two of them were inseparable until the day of Blue’s passing. She is the reigning queen of the house.

Sparky   Our very first dog and what a dog he was! My dad returned home from his graveyard shift and found a beautiful collie sitting on the front porch with an expression that seemed to ask, “What took you so long?” He was so good with my sister and I and we loved to kiss and pet his long nose. We miss you Sparky.

Mocha & Sugar   These girls belonged to our neighbors but you’d never know it - they followed my mom everywhere! They were well loved by my mom and were honorary members of our family until their passing.

Boots   My best friend’s little brother found this handsome tuxedo kitten in an alley being harrassed by some kids. Of course he rescued him and brought him directly to my mom. One of Boots’ favorite pastimes was wandering around the back yard, hunting lizards. He was so devoted to my mom that I nicknamed him “Kevin Costner” (from The Bodyguard movie) because he never left my mom’s side.

Blue   This handsome guy was another rescue kitty that my mom nursed back to health. Abandoned, flea ridden and feral, Blue had to be kept in a cage. He would hiss and swat at the door. Months later, you just couldn’t keep him off your lap - he would purr and lick you nonstop! It’s amazing what love will do. He definitely had another chance at life and we miss his sweetness every day.

Sherman   Similar to Blue’s situation, Sherman was abandoned in his adult years and it was clear he suffered abuse. It took months to get him well adjusted, flea free and to a healthy weight. Although he is a man of few words, he is completely devoted to my dad - and food! We love our sturdy boy, a.k.a. the “Sherman tank”.

Dakota & Preston   Dakota (husky) and Preston (chihuahua mix) are rescue doggies found roaming the streets, now enjoying a loving home with my mom and dad. Their personalities could not be any more opposite but they love eachother…for the most part! Dakota is like an incredibly smart, mischevious, two year old boy. Preston can be timid but is a wonderful watch dog. He also thinks he’s 10 feet tall and can take on any big dog!
