I have two cats, Bebop and Ella. Surprisingly, Hayley came up with the names, not me! Bebop (aka Monkey, aka Bop, aka Bopper) is the gray domestic short hair. Sometimes I think he is smarter than I am, but sometimes, only when he wants to, he is the snuggliest cat you have ever met. Ella (aka Bean, aka The Bean, aka Beany Baby) is the tortoise shell. She is our princess, and she knows it. We’re not sure she understands what purring is supposed to mean, because she seems to do it when she is both happy and terrified! However, she will snuggle and purr on you all day, and it is probably the best thing in life.
