I always had cats. I was so disappointed when I found out I was allergic to them. I went 20 years without one and then I found out I was not allergic to Himalayans. I called every shelter in Maine and finally found one 6 hours away. After they checked my references, they told me I could have this wonderful 1 1/2 year old male named Easter (because he was born on Easter Sunday). He was a god send to my family. My stepdad, Don, was confined to bed most of the day, Easter became his constant companion. I had never seen him laugh more than I did at Easter comical antics.

Ella, a German Shepherd Dog, was a stray in Florida. She was dumped by her owner. A friend of mine who volunteers in a rescue contacted me and asked me if I wanted her. We had to go through many hoops to get her to Maine. But thanks to many angels she made it. She flew in a plane, stayed in several kennels and made a trip in a Winnebago. Now she lives with Easter, now 10 years old and me. Easter never took to any other cats but she and Ella are good friends.
