We actually had a cat before Chole, named Cali, who was a long haired Calico. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of her.
We had to put her down back in March after almost 21 years. After a break, around late June, my parents went to the vet where they showcase cats for adoption, and Chole was there. At the time, her name was actually Mommy, as that's what the vet was calling her because of her kittens. My dad started playing with her, and that made him realize he wanted a cat more so than he thought. He kept asking if we were really ready, and apparently we were, because we started the adoption process that night, and brought her home about a week later.
