Purrrrfect pets!

We have 3...a female gray Himalayan, named Molly, and 2 black short-haired males, Saber and Charlie... all little refugees who adopted us.

If you're an animal lover at TVNL, you're good people!

I have 2 orange/white american short hairs, both 5 years old They are from the same litter. As luck would have it, they had just been brought into Bide A Wee on the day I went there. It was love at first site. They are as different as can be, one is skinny and neurotic, the other is fat and content. Life is definitely not boring with these two pumpkins!!

Hey, these sound more like people!

I have four outdoor cats--outdoor because they are too scared and skittish to want to be inside although they do have access to the cellar. One is gray and white, one tricolor, one tiger and one tortoise shell.

And three huge indoor cats, one black, one white and one tiger. Shorthairs all.

All of my cats came here the same way--someone dumped them on a back road near 'a little house in the country' where they would get care. I have taken so many kittens to the Animal Shelter--they know I only bring the lovable ones there and keep the ones with terrible personalities.

Everyone deserves someone to love them.

companions. They are too smart to be "owned" , but they do need a servant!

A servant...that's how my cats view me, too, Jesse.

Today, I went out and bought them some catnip to show them how much I love them. I put it on their scratching pads so they're more likely to use them!

They rolled around on the pads for awhile....then, with the catnip clinging to their furry coats, they went outside with not one thank you!

My cats have turned me into a very well trained servant., especially my cat Juliet.

When I come home from work, Juliet will wait 5 minutes, then jump into the tub and start meowing. This is to let me know that she wants her running water. Mind you, there is a water bowl that she has no problem drinking out of, but she must have her running water too. Also, she loves her string toy. She will start pulling at it to let me know it's time to play. If within a few minutes I still have not started to play with her, she will look at me and give me this angry meow which means that it's time to play now!!

If I choose to ignore her in either situation, she will just keep meowing until I do the task that she wants at that moment.

The boys vocalize when they want something. Food, litter box cleaned, food, playtime, food... Not exactly what you would call meows, more like a yodel...

Absolutely a servant... no other way to be... the boys are the first pedigreed cats I've ever been owned by... :shock: they are such a pawfull... :lol:

spirited... highly spirited...

We have 5 altogether. 3 dogs 2 cats. 2 are her's, 1 is mine, the others are ours.

The Collie we found running down the road, Nov. 2003. She has seizures. Because of her, we've learned so much. At first we were not happy because we have our own share of problems and weren't ready to take on another one.

The research I've done to help her has rewarded the whole family, so in a way, she's become our teacher, and may well be the reason she was "sent" to us. If not for her, I doubt I would have found this site.

We're all related in what we have to teach and what we have yet to learn.

I have a question for Jesse, asking his permission for something, but I don't know where to post it. Can someone direct me please?
