Hahaha! Love the name Rasputin! There's an evil white cat who lives up the road. He keeps hanging round ours, bursting through the cat flap and hoovering up any food he finds on the floor. Ours are terrified of him. We called him 'Mad Mick'. He attacks any cats he comes across, and has cost many of our neighbours money at the vet's for stitching up wounds and torn ears. We now chase him with a water pistol whenever he shows his evil face.
I went to see his owners (lovely couple, new residents, and they feed him well) and laughingly asked if they knew he was a psycho-cat. They said his name is 'Spirit'. Bloody 'Evil Spirit' if you ask me. They have another cat, called 'Marmite'. (You either love it or hate it) We had a laugh, and there isn't a lot they can do really. I think it needs psychoanalysis or something!
We got a funny Christmas card through our door. "With love from 'Spirit'" Gaaaah! Hee hee!

Yep. Agreed.

We've not had a Siamese (and I think all our cats have been findlings in one way or other - strays or "who want's a kitten") but my father's parents had one for a while.

I may have met him but can't really remember that at the moment (and this would have been in our first time round in N Wales - say my later primary/ up to early secondary years and granddad in Norwich) but I do remember they called him Rasputin.

Jon, that's so difficult isn't it? Minty gets bouts of triaditis, inflammation of three organs of the body. It can be painful and needs treatment. The last time was touch-and-go, and cost us nearly £800. He's getting old now, and like you we don't want to put him through being in the vet's for 3 days on a drip, crying for us and trying to grab us with his paw when we visited. Heartbreaking.
However at the moment he's quite perky and has regained his lost weight. But I think the last act of love is to send them on in peace and end the suffering. I must have wept lakes over the years over my lost little mates.
The three Siamese horrors are at this moment in the kitchen munching away on some lovely big lumps of cooked chicken breast. (Well, it is Christmas!)

Used to have a faithful Ginger Tom but long gone now. Re Joe's account of cats v critters I sat my cat down one day and gave him a right verbal bollocking about chasing birds on the yard wall. He never did again, sat initially gnashing his teeth then got used to them coming and going from the honeysuckle on his wall and sat contented.

We are sort of wondering about that with one at the moment, Senoufu. I don't remember what it's called but its some sort of tumour - apparently it doesn't spread to other organs but it gets bigger - from what I read she may have a couple of years maybe longer maybe shorter.

We got her to our local vets when we first noticed the small lump developing on her shoulder. They tried to remove it but it came back first time and she's now had surgery twice in the space of a couple of months. We've had her rather unsettled, dressed in a (now off) red jacket. We are optimistic that the second op has been more successful but also believe we can not inflict another stressful round of vet trips (that you can't even explain to them) on her. It's sort of fingers crossed and I think we leave it, if it returns again, until the lump is troubling her now.

Like most/all who've had a few pets over years I've seen a few go through accidents and illnesses. It's never easy.

I've had cats all my long life, usually four or five at a time. I used to show them at the General Cat Fancy shows, and in those days I had British Black Shorthairs. (dense jet-black fur and deep orange eyes) I won several Firsts and even a Premier medal (highest honour for neutered cats) with my lovely Ashmere Augustus (Gussie for short)
Then I started to have Siamese, and there was no going back. They're little monkeys but extremely affectionate and intelligent. Along the way, several poor little strays have found their way to my door, and being a soft twit I've taken them in.
Our cats now are two brothers (Minty and Murphy, one seal point and one blue point) and SmokeyPokey (blue point)
I've never had a cat that only wanted food and a nice fire. They've all been loving and wanting to be near me at all times. When my husband was in Africa last year, his 'favourite', Minty, pined for him dreadfully and spent the entire five weeks gazing out of the window hoping he'd see him coming home. When he finally arrived, the reunion brought tears to my eyes.
The only drawback with cats is their short life-span compared to ours. It's so hard to say goodbye, and the grief is terrible when you lose a cat. It never gets any easier.

beautiful cat, Joe!

My cats are similar. I last was owned by a cat in the late 70s, when I lived in a ground-floor apartment with a yard. Next papartment had no yard, so I gave her to the pensioner couple next door. She decided their son was her person & when he came home from work, it was his lap she sat in!

Ever since I've had cat ornaments & toys in my collections. Plus lots of photos I've taken of cats I've come across in my life.

Cats as ratters or even micers is not something I've really known. Sure they may bring you the odd present doing no harm in the field in but I don't see (at least well fed pet cats) them as being that effective pest controllers.

In the home their first love is often cupboard love and their own comfort usually comes first

I like them though and think many of us humans want a relationship with some other type of creature. While not for all, cats can fulfil that sort of role.

In current situation, we have the challenge - an older feral tom who on a good day I can get within a foot of (with loads of hisses) but I can't/would not try to touch and he is unlikely to move further from that stance and our getting old a bit indoor pair (actually both originally at different times feral kittens but young when they took to us).

We like cats for several reason, not least that we don't like rats and mice in the house. I don't know how effective the current incumbents would be as mousers because the word is evidently out among the neighbourhood rodents that our house is a no-go zone.

No doubt somebody else since 2001 has pointed out that we don't have cats, cats have us?

Four Birmans have had us over the past 30 years - Jasmine and Toby (both Seals) - Jade (Blue) and now Willow, also a Blue Birman.

I can recommend this breed as they are very placid and friendly - the only downside is the CAT HAIRS EVERYWHERE (not to mention furballs behind the sofa from time to time.....)

I acquired my first cat since childhood (neutered tom called Tigger) just over a year ago, when he needed rehoming, as his owner was dying. He was said to be 10 years old, and used to dogs (I have a dog that is not aggressive to cats). The dog has learned not to be scared of him!

I had him at the vets for his annual booster last week, and she said that if he had just come in from the streets, she would assess him as only being about 5! He's a bog standard tabby and white moggy, but very quiet most of the time, and at the moment is curled up on my lap.
In the 13 months or so I have had him, he has never scratched me, and only nipped me once - when I was teasing him. He's very gentle. He puts up with me cutting his claws when they get too bad, and I even managed to post a worm tablet down his throttle the other day, despite his frantic back-peddling!

My dog is suffering from heart failure, at the reasonable age of 13 and a half. She could still be here for a while yet, as she is coping quite well at the moment, but how long is a mystery - the vet said it could be a week or a year. I shall miss her, but she won't be replaced. However, I can see myself letting another cat own me some day!

I posted to this thread back on 09 July 2001, and I'm still a kitty-caregiver although I'm caring for different kitties now. Artie's health slowly declined after that 2001 post; he was diagnosed with cancer. I had wanted to adopt another cat but had put it off because of Artie's health and his radiation therapy. When his symptoms seemed to "level off" and even improve during the summer of '03, I asked my vet if he thought the stress of having another cat in the apartment would worsen his health, and I got the doc's OK to go ahead and get that second cat. I adopted 4-month-old Madison (a female) from a shelter, and kept the name they gave her, in early September.

There's no way to know whether Artie's health dive-bombed because of that adoption, or whether it was just a crisis waiting to happen, but about 5 weeks later, I had to have him put to sleep. Crisis followed crisis: my retina began to detach as I was having him buried at the local pet cemetery. Next thing I knew, I was going to Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia PA to get my retina re-attached.

Madison Mae -- as in "Madison may do what I tell her to do or Madison may not" -- is a brown torbie (tortoiseshell tabby). She was a problem child to begin with, having been raised on display in a shelter cage at PetSmart and continually exposed to gawking people and barking dogs. My preoccupation with Artie, my trip to the hospital and my recuperation (at the time I should have been bonding with Maddie and training her) didn't help any. I suspect that Maddie may have come from a litter of feral cats, and she is still something of a wild woman, distrustful of everyone else and sometimes not too sure about trusting me. She grows a little more pet-like every year, but often she chooses to hide under a blanket or inside a kitchen cabinet rather than hang out with me. The good news is that she prefers her scratching post to my furniture!

Hoping to find a cat that would be more affectionate and outgoing (and hoping to get Maddie to play/exercise and be less sedentary), I adopted a kitten from a different shelter this past June. The shelter named him Rex, and he's now Rupert Rex (as in "Rupert wrecks my home!" *grin* -- he raids wastebaskets, climbs the furniture, hides his toys behind chair cushions, pulls threads in my shower curtain, etc., etc.). He's a marmalade-orange tabby with more spots and dashes than stripes (and no white markings), and he's a joy to have around. Maddie doesn't agree -- she'd rather be an only cat -- but he chases her as much as she chases him so at least she's getting the exercise I'd hoped she would.

Little Roo came complete with ear mites and tapeworm; my struggles with his parasites and his digestion are recorded on my thread titled BS: Kitten healthy? Not? Advice, please -- and Joe Offer, bless his heart, offered a place on his website for my kitty-pictures (linked from the "Kitten healthy?" thread) since I don't have a site of my own yet. Thanks again, Joe!!

I share my living space with 3 lovely felines.
Madmardigan is 12 years old, white with tan patches and is the love of my life.
Mikey and Sheldon are brothers 3 1/2 years old, mostly black (each has a white patch on his pelvis and Mikey has a small white patch on his chest) and are the most intelligent cats I have ever met.

I have been getting that "feeling" lately about wanting another one but am denying myself and trying to remember that three's enough.

Beatrice was a feral kitten living in a ditch in rural Ontario, probably due for an early death, when she was rescued by someone and given to the OSPCA. She lived there for a while and became a favourite of the staff. Then my kids saw her, then my wife, and before I could say no, I was at the OSPCA filling out adoption papers. She's a champion mouser, sometimes even bringing them to me. She's otherwise quiet and serene, affectionate and passive, and she gets along with Rosie The Wonder Dog and Cosmo The Other Dog. Twice a day, usually morning and evening, she gets her exercise by racing back and forth through the house, but anytime she can be found playing with her toy mice. She doesn't go outside as we live on a busy street close to a highway.

The previous cat, Boots, is dearly missed by the girls in the family, and grudgingly by me. He was a screamer at night and most often had to spend the night outdoors. Strangely, the neighbours loved him.

Peace, Mooh.

Erica and I have two cats whom you'd think were litter sisters, but they're not.

Smutts is tortie (US = calico) and white and is so named for the big black blaze on her face.

Maisie is white and tortie, and is so named because she is Maisie.

They wre both rescue kittens. Our old cat died two weeks before her 20th birthday. We cried our guts out for a fortnight and then went up the Animal Rescue.

We have just one, Persia, who has been with us for 15 months now. Was a rescue cat, picked up living rough at the age of 6 months with a litter of kits (which didn't make it). She is a total star - we now think part Burmese - who is intelligent, funny (yes, she knows she is) and wonderfully affectionate. She spends part of the night on our bed, generally lying on top of me as I lie on my side, but she's got us into a routine whereby at the end of every day we have to have a "cat" time. She leads us into the sitting room where we either lie down next to her and admire her, or she has us trained in various games. We've just reverted to the Curtain Game, which she invented last year. The curtains are at the french windows and are therefore floor to ceiling. She hides behind them. We use those little foil crinkle balls and place them in folds of the curtains. She will pounce on them, generally propelling herself along the floor on her stomach or back in order to whop the balls back at us. One day I'll remember to take my phone down and video the whole thing, which is every bit as funny as some of the stuff on YouTube.

I'm allergic to cats now, but from childhood until late '80's I had:

Loco Gato, a big yellow tiger striped genius of a tom cat

Sammy Davis Jr., a Siamese with crooked tail

Kathleen, a very smart and classy tabby point Siamese

Fritz (the cat) who died very young

Oso Negro, a black bear of a cat

Pooh Bear, my last one, who was a fluffy long haired tabby point Siamese whose mother strayed into my house, discovered a corner of my kitchen, and promptly had a litter of kittens. She and the others were adopted out and I kept Pooh Bear. Pooh Bear was adept at playing paper-wad racket ball. He could jump and twist high in the air to bat the paper-wads I tossed, with perfect aim, even though Oso had nicked Pooh Bear's eye when he was a kitten and he had a scar in one eye.

Smokey - F grey/brown tabby. I was not permitted to touch because I had skin allergies. I did anyway.
Patches - F medium hair black and white patches all over. Yellow eyes. She had kittens with us.   
Moonshadow -M white short hair one green eye one blue eye. He always wanted to be outside, but would hang on the back door peering into the kitchen and mewing and then run off if we tried to let him in.
Poochi - M very fat, lazy and lovable Siamese. He could speak English almost. Ret mreee ourrt. usually at about 4 am.
Crosseyed Mary - (my older brother's) black kitten came to stay for a bit.
Squeaky - F long hair maine coon like with huge green eyes. Her favorite sleeping place was wrapped around my throat, like a scarf.

Always wanted a Spook - short hair grey manx with orange eyes sex not important.
As soon as we can get a house with garden, we will adopt 2 needy cats. Hopefully young enough to train to travel and caravan with us.

She likes to sit on my chest when I'm in bed, but never sticks her butt in my face. She hates the whole idea of reading, though, and often will slap a book out my hands if I'm reading in bed and she wants attention.

I have always lived with cats. Currently, I am servant to two Siamese cats: Luna and Milo. Luna is a "pica" kitty. She eats lots of things that aren't food - anything wool, fringe, shoelaces, rubber bands, ribbons, etc.) She's also allergic to the world so requires constant vigilance and a daily dose of Prednisol. Milo is a very happy uncomplicated kitty.

For someone who isn't a cat person, I somehow ended up with two, neither one of them planned. I acquired cat #1 almost six years ago when someone abandoned her in the park where I was working at that time. She's white with grey spots and the SO named her Caitlin (after telling me vehemently that we were NOT keeping her). She was a skinny, starving creature in a campground full of dumb, slow-moving rodents. I should have known then that she was mentally defective. She's now almost twice the weight she was when I brought her home. Her nicknames include Dumb Bunny, Piglet, Sausage, Retard Kitty, The Evil One, Katie Cat and Glutton.

Go-Go, our other cat, was acquired almost exactly one year after Caitlin became a member of our household. I inherited her after my adopted grandmother died. The local shelter wouldn't take her because of her age (she was 15 at the time), but she was still healthy and pretty spry for an old fart. She, too, was white with grey spots. She managed to survive another four and a half years, despite Caitlin's best assassination attempts, but we had to have her euthanised just before Christmas, due to a giant tumor in her abdomen. I'm rather guiltily enjoying being a single cat household, but the SO misses her terribly. The dog is wishing we were a no-cat household...

naah, cats are too aloof to bother having an opinion about anything human. i have three -

my old cat Baxter (17), scrawny, cranky, and three legged, has been known to hiss when feeling grumpy, but very loveable. my ex and i have joint custody.

deli – my son brought her home about a year ago, she is sweet, affectionate, and gentle.

and socksy - feral, lives in our back yard, has attached himself to us.

Ebbie, My kitty was 20 & a half when she went to kitty heaven a year back. Her longhair coat was quite matted, but she hated grooming so much that I didn't force it on her too much as it made her so mad. I gave her kitty vitamins she licked out of the tube every day all her life. I think that's one reason she lived so long. Her name, believe it or don't was "Sis" which was short for "Persistence." Yes, really.

Mr. Fitz, the senior member of the feline firm, is an orange and white tabby gentleman, acquired after a friend's cat had kittens, and I said I'd only take one if they had an orange tom with white feet.
Fitz has definate ideas about his rights and priveledges as senior cat, and insists on his right to be snuggled at specified times, fed canned food at certain intervals, and have primary use of the chair in the good bird watching window.
Musetta is a tiny tortie with a large bad attitude. Hollowfox's kids dubbed her the hiss machine.
Grace O'Malley is a grey tabby with tufty ears, who shows every sign of becoming a huge cat. I acquired her two weeks before I moved. She is rather impressively playful. She likes to wake me up in the small hours, trilling her "wanna play?" chirp. The older cats do NOT wish to play.
Gracie was abandoned when she was perhaps a day old and bottle fed. She actually likes to be picked up and turned upside down. Of course she likes to shred your hands when you do it. But it's all good clean fun.
I've been sleeping with a cat in my bed since I was 7, and I am not really comfortable sleeping without one.

The ideal number of cats in the household is one per lap. When the number of cats exceeds the number of laps, politics happens.

For the last 15 years, whenever a vacancy has occurred in our feline establishment, a suitable cat has arrived at the door and moved in. I'm told some people actually *purchase* cats; I can't imagine why.

For the last 6 years, I have been owned by Onyx, a lovely black female with brown highlights which show up in the sun. She is mainly an outside cat. She is rather timid around other cats - I have even seen her being bossed around by a visiting moggy. I think it is mainly because she is very laid back and not aggressive.

However, today I have taken delivery of another kitty, my son's black cat, Bella, who is apparently somewhat more assertive. They have moved to a flat where they aren't allowed any pets, so I've inherited her for now. We've only been back here an hour or so, and Bella has already made herself at home by rubbing up against the various pieces of furniture, and is now curled up on the cushion I rest my feet on when I am at my computer.

The two cats haven't met yet, because Onyx is away paying her respects to the neighbourhood, but it will be interesting to see what happens when they do. I think I'll let them meet with a screen door between them for a start, but I'll have to be careful to make sure that Onyx doesn't feel left out. Bella is also mainly an outside cat, so once she is used to being in a new place and I let her outside, they will have to get used to being around each other a lot. Bella is more of a pure black, and slimmer, so there will be no mixing them up - not really a matched set of bookends at all.

So now I am owned by two cats!

Four cats allow me to share their house. The same number that Mark Twain lived with. Ours have shorter names, though.

ShadyLady is officially owned by the World's greatest hedonist - Catkin. The world is there purely for his pleasure, so he has extended his ownership to the rest of us!

And to see his victory roll when he manages to escape upstairs...

He has to share us with Juanita (the name is my fault - she only has one eye!).

shortly before my old kittie, Lucy, was ready to leave this world,
a grey kittie which looked like a younger version of her showed up
(to take her place?) Moki (short for Smokey) received her training in the ways of the (cat) world and soon was ready to take over the house
when Lucy could no longer manage the task. A year ago Moki had three
kitties...Cinder (or Lucinda) who has stayed, and her little lion-like
siblings, Leo and Elsa who found new homes. they now rarely venture onto the ground floor, as the newest member of the family, Abbie the dog pesters them if they come within reach. If they would jsut stand their ground the dog would soon leave them alone, as she co-exists with other cats, but since these cats run, the dog goes into chase mode and never
the twain shall meet. i devised a doorway upstairs so the kitties can came and go thru the window and they are roof cats now. the cat door
on the ground floor gets harrassed too much by the dog to be used by them now.
