Cat lovers: pix!

  1. Wanted to share a few pics of our three red tabbies when they were little. We found them abandoned, eyes not even open, umbilical cord still attached to one . . . bottle-fed them, massaged their little tummies with a warm wet washcloth to stimulate stools (PHEW!! Stinky!!) and to clean them. . . they're our babies still, three years later!! My kids adore them, we can't remember what life was like without them --we really enjoy having them, can you tell???
    Here's one of three:

    SO SWEET!!!
    I have 2 babies, Mi-ke (just over a year) and Bellezza (8 months). The sad thing is that I'll have to give them up when me and my boyfriend get married. He's highly allergic. However, that's at least a year away, so I still have time with them.
    Thank you for sharing. I'm a sucker for kitties.

    Those kitties are adorable. They all look the same. How do you tell them apart???

    This was taken 11 years ago (I still look 15!). This is my first cat Socks. The original cat with attitude.

    Glad you enjoyed the pictures! Yes, jemb, they are TERRIBLY spoiled cats (who think they're human)!!

    Nightowl, they have subtle differences in coloring and not-so-subtle size differences that make it fairly easy for us (who live with them daily) to tell apart.

    Adrienurse, my first cat was black with the same white socks you described on your first cat!

    It's wonderful to be chosen by a cat - and yes, suzannasue, we feel VERY blessed to have them (all)!

    Those kitties look so much like my beloved Thomas, who had to be put to sleep last year. He was an orange kitty, too, same markings.

    I miss him terribly; unfortunately, my current living situation will not permit me to have a cat. I really miss not having a sweet kitty to tell my troulbes to, scratch behind the ears, etc.

    Mine was an abused cat that we rescued...I'm glad that at least he had 11 years in a home where he was loved and safe.

    I think our cats may be long distance relations! I aquired him in the same way, abandoned by his momma, I took him in, did the same poopy thing and now have one of the most spoiled rotton cats in California, he evens looks just like yours!
    I love my little Dexter, but I don't know if he realizes he is a cat...
