Four of the critters share my bed and board:

Missy Sue, age 13 1/2 and still very much the long-haired Siamese if you please;

Kaitlyn Marie, AKA Katie, age 10 1/2, a gorgeous black panther kitty,

RositaMariaGatita, AKA Rosie, age 8, a lover-girl, grey and white tabby;

Cassandra Lynn, AKA Casi, age 5, a calico cat who I swear is certifiably insane, but has more personality in her tail than most animals do in their entire bodies.

Kitty mom to 5 living cats and 12 kitty angels who romp at the rainbow bridge while they wait for us to come join them. Our oldest baby lived to be 2 weeks short of her 26th birthday. She crossed over to the rainbow bridge on April Fool's Day which we think would have appealed to her sense of humor. All of our fur kids, including one shar-pei have been rescues. Our current shar-pei also comes to, "Here kitty...kitty...kitty"

We have three yellow boys, Sandy is the youngest, he'll be three next month. KitKat and Peaches will both be five this year. Peaches came from a neighbor who had him for a year, no shots, not fixed. When Peaches was hit by a car, he came to us. Literally. We hadn't seen him for a day, pulled in the driveway, he was sitting outside the garage door. By the time we parked he was sitting by the back door (he knew we would help). His lip was torn to his gums, later we found a crack in his tooth that eventually broke off. His claws were shredded down to a nubbin, and his collar had been ripped off. His owners didn't want to know and he's been ours ever since (as an inside cat).

The other three were strays, Kit was 4 months and Sandy was a 12 week old kitten. Neko, our only grey, who will be 14 years old in April. He is hyperthyroid and now treated with Methimazole, doing very well.

We also feed a couple of feral cats, and of course other neighborhood cats like to stop by. The sibling of one of the outside cats was ill, had a draining open wound on his face, and was losing weight. My DH was able to grab him and took him to the vet, unfortunately, he was positive for FLV and FIV, and had to be put down. I warned the owners of a couple of the neighborhood cats that they could be infected, but I don't know if they got their shots afterward. We can't touch the other feral cats, I'd have to get a live trap and who knows who would end up inside!

I don't need any more, though!

I have two now, and they don't really get along. One is a short haired black and white male cat named Mr. T, and the other is a long haired black cat with a white chin and white feet. Her name is Isabelle.

When we've had that problem, our vet's advice has been to begin by rubbing something either my husband or I had worn (or the hand towel we had used in the kitchen) over both kitties so they would recognize a very similar smell when they interacted or even just passed each other. Once we had a feisty little intact male that we were fostering for the vet and his reaction to our boys was to attack them despite the fact that he only weighed 4# and the other guys weighed double. triple and more than he did. The towel was an abysmal, total and complete failure. He had us put vanilla extract on a cotton ball and rub it on all the cats, the new kitten, the dog and on both of us. It worked! It took the better part of a day, but it did work. We kept the kitten cloistered when we weren't home for about a week as a precaution.

We have one cat; a tortoise shell. I consider it the DW's cat; especially when he coughs up hairballs (which he does relatively frequently). I like him, but I don't know if I can claim to love the ornery critter. He loves to be petted and lays on his side and stretches out to what seems like 2 feet long. The more you pet him the more he rolls onto his back and exposes his stomach as if he wants you to scratch it. But DON'T DO IT!! It's a TRAP! As soon as you start to pet his stomach he doubles into a ball and proceeds to stick every claw and most of his teeth into your naked flesh. :nono:

Oh, all right....... even as ornery as he is; and despite the numerous times he's drawn blood I would miss him if anything ever happened to him.

I have two little furry daughters, Sydney, (NeeNee or Psycho depending on mood):D and Allie. Allie is about 12 years old. I stole her from a friend who wasn't taking very good care of her so I swooped in. NeeNee, I adopted from a friend whose cat had kittens. She is about 8 years old and the weirdest cat you will ever meet. She is so vocal I can hardly talk on the phone without someone thinking I am committing kittycide! I don't know what I would do without them.
