Here's itty bitty Maddie, just a few weeks old.
Here's Maddie today!
Here's Alicia's latest report.
Maddie, who's 5, continues to be the best kitty ever. She's exactly like she was as a kitten in habits and personality--super cuddly, playful, impatient, and talkative. The only difference is now she's fully grown. Saying that Maddie and I are two peas in a pod doesn't really do our relationship justice. We're always together and we're most happy when she's riding around on my shoulder, in my lap, or under the covers. Longtime IBKC readers may remember that Tony and I started with one tortie, Sophie. After adding Maddie to the family we also adopted Cassie, a dog, and Gnocchi, our third tortie. Maddie is the closest friend to all of them, pretending to be a dog with Cassie, teaching Gnocchi how to hunt and accepting Butterbean-style baths from Sophie. She's a constant source of joy and we know how lucky we are to have her in our family and to be an extended member of the IBKC family.
Thank you so much for the update and all the photos, Alicia! It's always great hearing what that goofy tortie girl is up to!
