The Famous, Ever-Popular, and Much-Loved Frankie & Johnny

Johnny's stretched out below, and a bit chubby these days. And Frankie is 1/2 Johnny's size. He has the all-black face and she has the white stripe down her nose that sometimes make it look like as if her nose is crooked.

They were rescued from a guy who collected city cats with the express purpose of helping them, but he collected so many cats he had to put them in small cages in his apartment for long periods of time. Turns out some of them were in cages for so long their legs atrophied from lack of movement. So sad. What that guy meant for good actually wound up injuring many of the cats.

Johnny's legs are bowed and Frankies are ham-hocked, but they are beautiful, healthy, and my babies.

Thanks to Jen of CasualSlack and Teri of Family Tree Junkie for getting me to post these pictures of the most beautiful cats in the world in the eyes of their mom.

Click their pictures to enlarge.

They're gorgeous ... and brilliant, and speak at least 3 languages: English, a little French, and cat. If anyone takes issue with their gorgeousness or brilliance, they're dangerously stirring up a mother's wrath. I would keep those kinds of thoughts to myself.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Johnny sends a kiss. Frankie hissed a little bit (it was her "who are these strangers" hiss--sorry!!).

Thanks Mollie! I'm glad you're finally getting to see them. The best thing is they are just the most loving, kind little creatures.
And they're gorgeous and brilliant too! Don't forget that! ;)
