Baby Love with Sonora & Chili


Sonora Pepper & Chili Pepper joined the Purrchance To Dream family in 2013.  One day, while Not The Mama was volunteering with The Way Home at Petco, someone walked into the store with a shoe box, handed it to the cashier and walked out.  Inside were three tiny kittens.  Not The Mama agreed to take on the kittens as bottle babies fosters, and nursed them into strong playful kitties.  You can see Sonora and Chili's third sibling, their grey sister Tamale, above in the picture.  Tamale was adopted but Sonora had won over Not The Mama after a health scare when she got dehydrated, and he knew he had to adopt her.  
At adoption days at Petco, Chili kept getting overlooked - she is a lovely tabby, but people wanted fluffy kittens or siamese-looking kittens or whatever.  Finally, one day Chili came up to Not The Mama on the couch, put her paws on his chest and looked him in the eye.  That was it.  We're very happy that Tamale got adopted into another home, but we cannot imagine our lives now without Sonora and Chili in them.
Sonora has always been the smaller of the two tabby girls, and her is a picture of her as a baby:


And here is Chili in mid-2013:

And here are the girls today:

Wow we remember visiting and how sad it was when Sonora was sick. We were so happy she got better and not too much longer Chili was adopted into the family too. We were all so happy when Dad read that to us..
Whee
You two really were so lucky to be brought to the store right at that time.
