    When my wife and I first got together 20 years ago, we started with three cats. A couple weeks ago, the last of them passed on.

    Now, after two days of driving around to area shelters, we've started again. Introducing our two young cats: Sam and Stella! (Bonus points to anyone who gets the musical references. Hint: Note the markings/colors.)

    Very nice!

    We rescued an an orange tabby kitten (4 mo?) from the local shelter a couple of weeks ago. He's fit in nicely.

    The corgis don't mind him much, but my 8 mo old GSD is obsessed with him.

    Congratulations. Sam looks to share some trace traits from the 'silver Bengal' breed...he lacks the defined spots but has the striped mask and paw markings...my wife and I love cats, can't live without em'

    Congrats to you two for adopting these beauties! I guarantee that Stella will be a handful and she'll 'talk' you to death :). Here's what she'll look like at about 10.

    OK - the names. "Stella" because she has traits of a Russian Blue, and Stella Blue is a Grateful Dead song? Which would lead to "Sam" as in Uncle Sam or Samson and Delilah (also GD references). Am I warm? :huh

    Stella Blue, yes; the wife was a deadhead in college.

    Sam -- think Pink Floyd. First album.
