That helps a lot now that she HAS hair. I always attempt to learn my friends' pet names even before I try to memorize their own.

Ah, another cat thread. Here are my two girls. The Hymalayan, Harriet. is 17 years old. I have had her for twelve. I've had cats all my adult life but never two at once. I had heard that if you hav two they can keep each other company. That may be true if you get them at about the same time but if you introduce a new cat to another that is used to have the run of the place the results can be problematic. When Henryetta was introduced as a stray there was domestic unrest for a full two years. They tolerate each other in the sense that they don't brawl on site anymore but I will never have two cats again.
We have multiple cats and have found it somewhat beneficial to adopt in pairs. As prior post of pics of Oreo and Tiger Boy...it was easy. However, we have had introduce singles and it takes some time for the adjustment to occur...at least they don't attempt to kill each other.

The saving grace is Coco (Momma Cat)...somehow the boys will come to her for "mothering" and she does accomodate and grooms them or give them a quick lick.

As you've probably ascertained, Coco is the "Boss" of our household!

Pooka the pirate kitty
This is my newest interloper. Her name is Pooka. She was dumped (with her sister) at a construction site my friend was working on. After having to put to sleep my baby kitten Binhex (short for binary hexidecimal) due to brain cancer, I started thinking about an all-black polydactyl kitty.
I got Pooka, who is very black, but alas, has only the standard number of toes. She bosses the older two kitties, Sprocket and Skittles a brother-sister pair who just turned 4.
Pooka (a goblin) suits her perfectly.

i've got four cats and not one of them enjoys cuddling or being cuddled only gobby, the interloper who may or may not belong to somebody else, will deign to sit on my lap. the others respond to cuddling with a range of reactions from annoyed tolerance to frantic struggling.

This is Alita aka Wheaty cat. She'll sleep on the bed with me, and sometimes come under the covers as well, but will only sit on my lap if she's placed there - and even then she wears a look of wearied resignation.

i'm worried that there is something wrong with my lap

Without knowing the make and model of your lap it will be hard to diagnose. Have you tried smearing it with fish oil or catnip?

We have a black (Bombay)...his name is guess what? "Blackie"...he's one heck of a healthy cat...18 years old. Can't really cuddle him although he likes to have his coat brushed and head scratched. His distinctive habit has been chewing on plastic bags and his favorite is tyvek envelopes. The vet said that his teeth and gums are perhaps the best he's seen of a cat his age...we showed him on of the bags that Blackie gnaws on and said it might be worthwhile to get the others to do same...noooo...it doesn't work that way!

Simple...you've been adopted!... Laughing emoticon Count your blessings...cat's are fickle and it's not that easy to have a cat adopt or become part of your Family...so when they pick you consider it something special!

Have an older (by about 10 years) version of Crumpet, known for the obvious reason as, Bandit.

Also currently have 8 more indoor only (injured, sick, or very old throwaways) rescued by my wife and at least one outdoor only that may belong to somebody else but usually hangs out in our back yard.

Tazio,

Bless you and your wife...we thought we had it a lot with our indoor adpotees...but not 8. By the way, the one that hangs out..."you've been adopted"...or better yet you may have been inducted into a single TNRM colony! Clap emoticon

We help out with a small colony of four cats who are being properly handled via a TNRM (Trap Neuter Return Manage) program.

St Francis of Assisi...Patron Saint of Animals
Keep an eye out in your community, I believe this time of year there are a number of churches that offering a blessing for pets.

Interesting that when these pets go under to roof of a church...they all seem to understand and behave during their blessings...

During the month of June there is a blessing done by a Buddhist church...we try to make this one every year!
Many churches are supposedly having Pet Blessings!

Here's the same...Oreo and Tiger Boy...brothers. According to foster parents they were transported in corrugated boxes. Hence, I guess they think they are going somewhere?

These guys are perhaps the most easy to manage cats we've had. Both also don't mind being cuddled and will nudge and kiss you. BTW, they were raised by a foster dog...Annie.

There's a feral cat that we have fed for several years and we called him "Boy", well "he" was was trapped and neutered by a TNRM group and had "his" ear notch which will indicate the sex of the cat...well "boy" was not a "boy" but a "girl"! We tried differing names with a more feminine orientation...we gave up and we still call him "Boy".

It doesn't really matter Crumpet a very adorable kitten!

By the way, right ear means "girl" and left ear "boy"...as I was told right ear because girls (women) are always "right"...Okee Dokee...no arguement from me!
