Rosie J. (RJ) Potter
Rosie J. Potter is a Southern gal with a penchant for adventure. She's been weaving stories, singing songs and dreaming of magical places ever since she can remember. She currently resides in East Tennessee with her partner and their six cats. While she enjoys her fulltime day job, paying the bills as a best-selling author is her dream. And by bills, she means supporting six cats.
Meet the furbabies
Evy is our 15-year-old HBIC. She needs to have things her way. She's a total momma's girl and only tolerates everyone else.
The first thing Rosie gave her when she showed up starving on her doorstep in 2009 was cheese. Evy loves cheese to this day.
She recently had to have five teeth removed, but now that she's feeling better, she's even more spry than she was before!
The Pirate Trio
After losing our beloved house panther Lyra Bagheera in 2020, we decided to adopt another cat. We found a boy house panther named Sir Francis on an adoption website, but quickly discovered that he had a brother--Captain Morgan--and a sister--Anne Bonny. When we went to meet them, we quickly realized they were bonded, and we didn't want to separate them! We adopted them together as a bonded trio of 4-month old kittens. They're slightly over two-years old now. Still up to no good, but delightful furbabies.
Big Momma and Little Butt
Big Momma (Lana) and Little Butt (Maria) were barn cats, in the sense that Momma took up in the barn behind our house the summer of 2021 and had kittens. We managed to trap her and the kittens with plans to take them to a TNR (Trap Neuter Release) program. Well, we took four cats to the TNR and came back with two, because the kittens were so fluffy and adorable the other two were adopted!
We put them in a kennel in the basement, because LB had a nasty bot fly larvae removed from her neck. We didn't want her to get infected. It seems that they never left! Instead of getting adopted by someone else (which we tried) or going back outside, they moved upstairs. I can't imagine it any other way, honestly. That put us at seven cats at the time (RIP Steve-March 2022), but it's been worth it.
Big Momma is such a silly girl, you'd think she was the daughter. She spends most of her days fluffy belly towards the sky. LB has THE FLUFFIEST tail I've ever seen on a cat. They're both big cats, and we suspect some Maine Coon in their genetics somewhere. LB has surpassed her momma in size and she's barely one. They're such a delight!
