Mox-Mox and Rox-Rox

Mox-Mox and Rox-Rox turned 6 today! and even though they come across as two lazy cats, they are full of character and very witty when it comes to getting what they want. They are very demanding during breakfast time and when it’s time to venture out for the night. They will follow you around and vocalize their demands until you literally HAVE TO give in just to make them stop.

Moxie and Roxie were born at my dad’s house, back in 2009. Their mom, a loving cat, that stayed around all these years and it will spend the rest of her life as a stray cat fed by my parents and sheltered in the house during the days of harsh winter. She also was born there, just a couple of years prior and she was the only one that stuck around for the long run 🙂

That same summer of 2009, I had found a nice rental house and was going to move out of my parents’ house for the first time! Initially when we found out that the cat was going to have kittens, I had my mind on only taking one cat. That cat was going to be my roommate 🙂 And then they were born! One prettier than the other! There was a litter of 5: 2 tigers, 1 grey striped (in the picture below) and the 2 rascals! I wanted to still just take one (had my heart on the black one) and name it Moxie — good for boy or girl.

My grandmother lived with my dad at the time and she was the one taking care of the babies. She said as soon as she sees them eating food and milk, I could have them. And so on October 23rd I got to take them home. One of my friends was there to help with their move and while they were nicely tucked in a box, we started thinking of what to name the other cat… By now, my grandma told us that the black one is a boy and the B&W one is a girl (perfect!). 45 minutes later, when we arrived at my place, Jenn suggested Roxie ” ’cause it rhymes with Moxie “. And that was that! Moxie and Roxie were at their new home.
