My First Feline Friday!

I was poking around the (now back online - YAY!) A to Z Blogging Challenge master list, looking at some blogs when I came across this fun little BlogHop - Feline Fridays!  I have no shortage of cat photos so I think it'll be fun to join in - and hopefully get my blogging mojo going again!

Thank you Sandee at Comedy Plus for being in charge of this! 

Since this is my first post, I'll introduce my trio of felines.
She was born in my sister's barn in May 2015 and her 2 littermates still live there - although they moved into the house.
I am her hooman, since when I'm not home, the Spouse and Spawn hardly ever see her.  I think it's because when we brought her home as a kitten, I sat on the couch with her for hours, until she was ready to explore. 
Her nickname is Peep due to the cutest little sound she makes when you say her name.  
She's got the softest fur!
Rusty is also a veteran of my sister's barn.  I brought him home April 2017.  Someone left him there and after several months, he ended up coming home with me.  I respect that he used to be an outdoor cat, so I made a deal with him that he can go outside occasionally - as long as he's in a harness on a leash.  He gets excited to see his harness and is happy to roam around the yard with a person in tow.  
He loves people (and dogs and horses, etc) and is very patient with the tiny humans - especially the 2 year old who is photobombing here. 
Is it just mine, or are orange cats just the most personable cats?
Madison (aka Maddie)
This mature little lady chose us from the Humane Society back in July 2012, they said she was 3-4 years old then.  The Spouse is her favorite human, but she'll tolerate me. 
She is "The Informer".  If something is wrong - she lets us know.  If we're doing something out of the ordinary, she must observe. 
Here, I was getting "the look" because I was taking an online training course for my search & rescue team and that's just not normal.   The Spouse works from home and I was in his spot! 
btw - She ended up sitting on my laptop and sent 4 garbled messages over the group chat and somehow managed to unmute my microphone.  That took a 3 key combination to press and yet she did it!  At least I had my camera on, so they didn't think I was nuts - they could see her.

Oh, there's a thing called Friendly Fill-ins, too! This'll be fun, too! 
Thanks Ellen of 15andmeowing and Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs!
