One pound kitty, Peanut. She's a Torbie (tortise/tabby) from the humane society (that's what makes her a "pound" kitty).

It took Dylan (my 11 year-old) about 2 years to convince me to get a new kitty after the first one he knew died in about 1998. Graypaw had been with us since before Dylan was born. We needed time to mourn and I needed to be free of the responsibility of animal care in addition to full-time solo kid care for a change.

Now I have a toe warmer/chewer and window decoration named Peanut.

When I moved into my house 10.5 years ago, a friend set me up with this homeless guy who was hanging around the neighborhood. Gray & white longhair. When he hit 15.5 pounds the vet put him on a diet.

Barnabas is the only cat I've ever owned or been owned by. He's a great lap cat when I'm in his chair. Otherwise he's just in the chair without me. He keeps me company at night & never gets me up earlier than I want to.

I currently have one cat, Worf, who comports himself with honor. He's a rescued feral kitten, tamed up very well and pushing four years old now. I inherited Henrietta when she was ten years old. After three household changes in a year, I thought she was entitled to live out her days in the same place. She wanted everything "just so." She lived to be over 18. My first car was Hendrix, a long haired black cat. A gentleman of black cats. My significant other has five cats, my singing partner has two. They're all great critters.

I have four Catz: all strays, arrived at various times, kind of like the story of the Hobbits, who came to the fire one at a time as a story was told---so as not to overwhelm the host!

Olive,14 was first,as a 4 month old stray from the Humane society. Took her home, and she promptly developed pneumonia; the humane society offered to exchange her, but I knew they might put her down. I kept her and nursed her back to health.
Like Sorcha's Millie, Olive is a paranoid schizo who lives in the basement and only comes upstairs for meals.

The second arrival was Ninja: all black except for a white necktie. He arrived as a 6 month old (now 12 years old). He had been hanging around Rasputin's café-the local folk music venue-being fed by softhearted Helen, the proprietor.
He is a true gentlemen, kind and even tempered. Awesome spiritual being! He teaches me how to be patient and loving.
Frisky: aka "the furry basketball" is the vocal one. Also 12 years old.Exuberant, dominant, and very mouthy. Hates harmonicas, clanking cutlery,loves to join in with Sue's penny whistle solos.

Last but pushing hard for dominance in the house pecking order, is a tortoiseshell: Daisy (also called Marguerite, french translation).
Daisy is 3 years old, and the most active. Also very vocal, and acts as household guard. She's the first to investigate strange noises. Daisy is a trickster, always annoying the other cats, and getting into shortlived hit and run squabbles.
Olive is the bedwarmer, will stay cuddled for hours--if I go and retrieve her from the basement.The others are lapvisitors, particularly when I am at the computer.

I've a fenced back yard, with a self designed angled netting to keep them from getting out, and other cats from getting in. They have the run of the yard except in winter when they refuse to go out for more than 75 seconds at a time.
All are good companions for this stay at home (retired)dad/husband.

He lies on his side and Tipsy & Shadow suckle him and massage his tummy with their paws as if he were their Mum.....Yes I did say HE! - Must video and send to "You've been framed!" He also purrs of a fashion when he is with the cats and when they were kittens he used to clean their eyes and bums like mother cat (we rescued them when VERY young and he took on the role without prompting)

Anyone who caught the BS Eclipse thread will have read my thread, heartbroken after Esme our slinky little black kitten was run over during it. Her sister Felicity (aka Scratch (by name and nature) (1 year old on the 22 March) was pining for lack of company so we now have a 7 month old black long-haired rescue kitten who despite her original bedraggled appearance is turning into a gorgeous quasi-Persian (tip: Dene's natural cat food turns all felines into sleak,silky thangs). Also, she has been nicknamed Mudkitten as she sits with her nose glued to the screen when I am surfing. Actually, it has taken 45 minutes to type this thread as she wants to tell us all something - when I decode what she's typing I'll let you all know!!

PS: Felicity was the name of choice of my 10 year old son - I explained that it mean "celebration, congratulations" and he reckoned having a kitten was cause for celebration. Small black fluffy thing is Buffy (TVS) altho' my name for her is Bebe as she is turning into a sexy girl - a bit like Pepe le Pew(sic?)'s feline love interest

Wincing Devil,

You are right. The Silent Miaow was written by Gallico's cat. Then there is Gallico's book called Jenny, about a boy who turns into a cat and gets looked after by a female cat called Jenny. Very insightful. And then of course there is Archie & Mehitabel, written by Archie the cockroach but Mehitabel is a cat, isn't she? (Long time since I saw either of these books)

Yeah, I got one too. Name's Fluffy. Now I wouldn't have given her that name, but it came with. I knew we were gonna get a cat when at a dinner party Our Hostess asked Missus "Do you guys want a cat?" Missus replies "Oh, maybe." Translation: "Sure thing." I don't have a picture of her, but for years, we thought she might be a Norwegian Forest Cat, but she's too small. Then we thought she might be a Main Coon; again too small. Turns out she's actually what is called a Domestic Longhair. Durndest thing I ever did see. She's got two coats; the long hair on the outside, and a sort of fine, wooly one underneath next to her skin. She has to be fed about a half teaspoon of plain yogurt at 9:00 PM sharp, and must be brushed at 10:15 PM and woe betide me if I'm late with the brushing. Her favorite thing? Going outside, eating grass, coming inside and barfing all over the livingroom carpet. Nice cat though. Even if she refuses to be picked up and cuddled. Won't sit on your lap, either, unless she thinks of it before you do. And then only IF you're wearing her favorite bluejeans.

I have four cats that live on the balcony and 10 downstairs that are either strays that find their way here during storms (it rains cats here, not cats and dogs) and decided to settle in and raise a family or part of the great cat dynasty - over 5 cat generations so far, started by one single cat that was given to us by my dad's friend.

the cats downstairs are Maximillian (3rd gen. - black/white male - i actually watched him being born! ^_^ i guess that's why he's my favorite), Ricky (3rd gen. - ginger/white male - Max's 2nd cousin and very affectionate), ShadowCat (black female, stray, won't come near you unless you have food), Neeson and Arki(4th gen. - ginger/white females, they don;t like people), Zoey (tri-colored female, stray and also an affectionate kitty), Zoey's unnamed sibling, and 3 unnamed kittens (2 ginger/white, 1 black/white). There used to be others, but Splotch (Max's bro, black/white) left when Max came back after being gone for 3 years) and Heather (Max's sis and mom of the two ginger/white kittens) died when she was running decoy for her kittens - our dogs, Cookie and Brandy (dalmatian and boxer) got her instead of them.

the ones on the balcony are Kildare (tri-colored female that i picked up as a month old kitten at the local flea market), her two kittens by Splotch (Laoghaire - girl, Kinley - guy, both tri-colored) and Graeme (i got him from a local breeder, he's a Shorthair/Siamese but looks like his dad {the shorthair} so he's a grey and black spotted tabby). I just got all the balcony cats back from the vet - they had to be dewormed, and it cost me an arm and a leg!!! Still, the two days without them was very lonely...

Three right now. Darius Maiow and Angie (Acute Angina)age about 10, are brothers whose mother was squished on the road when they were 2 weeks old, (did you know that kittens that young need BATHS every day at least?) and Andy who walked in about 1 1/2 years ago. People think barns are great places to abandon cats, but barns on highways are NOT. Dari and Angie stay in and don't really know what they are missing. Andy WON'T stay in but since he got rolled by a car 2 weeks ago I make SURE he's in at night at least. All cats are grey in the dark, especially grey ones.

Wincing Devil, what's it like to pet naked kitties?

And Metchosin, a declawed cat has no defenses against things that go BUMP in the night.... Is there someone who will take her inside?

I had a tiny tortie shell long hair that was the terror of every dog she met. Usually she drew blood. I once saw her run into a back "yard" (teensy, but it held two Irish setters) under the fence and go out over the top and ind the intervening half second turn those dogs from attackers to cowering whimperers.

I have no idea how many we've had in the 26 years we've been together. Suffice it to say that our daughter, who is allergic would howl the loudest if we got rid of them.

A great thread!

6 cats share my house:

New Moon (usually called Moon, or sometimes New Balloon) a 19 year old shorthaired tortoiseshell still going strong. She's the matriarch.

Cougar, white longhair, Amazon kitty. She's 10. Orphaned at 3 weeks, adopted at 5 weeks, she's beautiful despite her sad beginning.

Romeo, black and white longhair, named because he's such a lover. Unfortunately he also likes to hunt frogs in the creek just for the sport of it. 10 years old. A cat shelter cat I acquired while volunteering there.

Freya, shorthaired black. the panther of the bunch, silent, skiddish and enigmatic. About 8.

Rainbow (cause she's stripey), tabby on white, around 7 or 8. likes to think of herself as the baby of the family. Another cat shelter cat that I fostered because she was hurt as a kitten and couldn't give back when she was well.

Rumble (because of his purr and because he likes to tussle) orange tabby longhair. At 5 years he's the real baby. and still acts like it.

They share the house with 3 dogs-- Furry Hurricane (usually called Furry) and Monkey, brother and sister, mixed breed (Lasa Alpso and Pekapoo) 14 years old, Furry's various shades of brown to black, Monkey's black. Sam--short for Samantha-- a Rott mix who looks all Rott but is about 3/4 the size. About 4. Most of them sleep on the bed and spend half the night jockying for positions on the pillow (except for the dogs, who prefer the foot of the bed).

Why are we all such masochists concerning cats?
Do all our houses smell like litter boxes? Perhaps I am not quite so embarrassed about mine, now.
Our Yentl will sit on a table and STARE for hours at this awful Victorian style landscape fake oil that I have in the entry way......it's an awful painting, and a worse copy, but she seems to love it. She will also occasionally get in the bath with me. Swim acoss to the other side, swim back, jump out and dry herself off. Who knows?

PLEASE SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR PETS!! (unless of course, you are an ETHICAL, responsible breeder.....)Far too many animals have to be killed (especially CATS!!)for any of us to feel smug about our pets. NEUTER!!

I think you 'Cats all need a healthy dose of Paul Gallico's book called The Silent Miaow. I don't know if it is still in print, but you can probably find it in a library somewhere. We are all victims of feline-cajolery and Paul Gallico has seen through their wiles.

It's very funny and very true. I have had a copy of it for about 10 years but I first read it about 10 years before that. It's a must-read for people who think they are in charge of cats, or people who think it is a mutual benefit society. The whole scenario has been designed by the cat right from the start - not unlike the revelation of the lab rats in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

My little Ceramen (not celtic, latin. For earwax. Don't ask) used to hang in the cat flap, head in, arse out, waiting for some other cat to come and lick his bum.... He also had a foot fetish and would eat your toes. Shadow is a cat of very little brain, she cannot remember how the catflap works in this house, even though it is identical to the one in the previous house, that she used perfectly happily for 4 years!

ooh, how nice to hear about all these kitties!

On The Witches' Voice website (www.witchvox.com) we have a section known as "The Cats of Witchcraft" with many photos of people and their kitties...cat owners are incorrigible it seems when it comes to praising/damning their little darlings/devils...

I have five adults: Ziggy (grey and white tabby who survived being run over and a month of being unable to move his back legs!), Trivia (grey with small peach and white patches, part Siamese, part Russian Blue), her daughter Zeus (all grey; a friend named her unaware of the gender), Zeus' son Stoney (all grey), and Zeus' daughter Blackberry (all grey, whom the vet thought was male for some reason)... and at the moment there are six kittens from two litters: four all grey, two grey with peach and white patches...

if anyone lives near Boston and wants one or knows anyone who does...let me know. Otherwise I usually don't have much trouble finding homes or taking them to a very humane pet shop nearby that helps place them... peg

We once got adopted by a cat which turned out to belong to a person at the end of our road. we also have to put up with a stray ginger tom who seems to find it funny to provide our queens with someone to care for (ie mini mousers!) and the majority of our 11 ginger mousers are descended from him!

Mao-Mao adopted us about a year ago.

Unfortunately for her, she has had to go from the exhalted role of a declawed indoor-cat, to that of a lowly barn-cat, due to family allergies and a terrier with first dibs on the house, who would gladly tear her to pieces at the first opportunity.

She still protests her diminished status loudly and often, which in turn, sends the terrier into a frenzy.

Malcolm,
My Fred like your Oscar was such a terror that two vets requested I not return with him. After major surgery requiring two days on an IV at the vets office, he was returned to me within two hours. The staff was terrified of him and the other patients were disturbed. They used to tranquilize him in his carrier just to get him onto the vets table. I could manage him but it seemed to be a matter of honor for the vet to deal with it. Also, I have been told, I could sue for damages if the cat hurt me while in the examining room.
I finally found a vet with a sense of humor and we cared for Fred into old age. He broke hundreds of dollars worth of antique pottery, deliberately kicked an assortment of crystal including a lamp to the floor, left lifelong scars on my arm, but broke my heart when he decided it was time to go. Why am I always attracted to bad boys?

pudding - one of his many aka's is now going round very embaressed at his ever widening girth.

I am going to post notes through the doors of every house in our street.

A pic of blotchy tom (another aka) with do not feed this cat under it.

Seriously...
