The Bug (Left) and William
This is William and The Bug. William (full name William Robinson) has been my best friend and constant companion since June of 1996. I got him and his sister Penny Robinson from a couple who had resuced his whole litter when their mother was killed by a backhoe in an empty lot in Union City, Ca. I got them both in exchange for a 5 pound box of See’s candy. I got the better deal, infinitely.
Penny left us in March of 2006, a victim of stomach cancer.

The Bug has been with me since April of 2006. He was a shelter kitty, who’s photo I saw on the SPCA’S internet website. Both William and myself were so upset at the loss of Penny that I thought I should immediately get him a companion, since I’m at work so many hours a day.
this is the Bug’s original shelter website picture. I fell in love at first sight with this picture.
The Bug’s given name is Everett, but that never stuck. He takes such pleasure in driving William crazy, and I was constantly telling him to stop bugging William that the name was born.
