a thread for crazy cat ladies! I thought maybe just pics of your own cats, and if there's not enough then just any old cat you can find!

I have 8. Technically only 5 are mine, the others think they live here. Mostly because I feed them with everybody else and they never seem to leave!

I'm loving the pics!

Note to self: I don't have to take this day all at once, but rather, one step, one breath, one moment at a time. I am only one person. Things will get done when they get done.

Teach:

I also foster and ended up keeping my last foster (got diagnosed and had to take a foster break). But he had special circumstances, ah, that just made it easier for me to know he was getting a good home. Story is: someone called the police about a homeless man who apparently spray paints everything he gets gold. And you guessed it. He had spray painted a kitten gold. I volunteer for a county shelter that is a good one but still county.

Horrific when I got him. Maybe 12 weeks old. Hair gone in spots (chemical burns), one eye would need removal, neurological issues (they weren't sure why but he was knuckling -- not up on his legs/paws). Expectation was maybe 50/50. Totally fine with regard to his intelligence, if that makes sense. He's sharp!

Anyhoo--my BC.org pic is that guy. He's wild. Plays all the time. FAT. Beautiful, shiny coat. We did have the eye removed, and I expect he may have issues from toxic exposure sometime in the future. Unknown. I named him Banksy after the spray paint artist. They were calling him Goldie at the shelter and we could not live with that!

Fostering is wonderful. Good for the soul.

Wren:

Thanks. Except for the eye, you would never know about his past. He does have minor neuro with the back legs -- gives him this sexy, kinda stiff/leg walk. But if I didn't point it out, you may not notice.

He's a terror. I am not kidding. Very loving and demanding.

Other cat, 15, is at the vet. Looks like congestive heart failure. Idk. I'm only going on what doctor insinuated this morning. Everyone in the house is aging (me, hubby, old cat, old dog) except for the crazy young cat and my son. Ugh.

We lost a kitty to heart failure. They wanted to send her to a cardiologist and run expensive tests, but it wouldn't have changed the outcome. She was afraid of many things, cars and vets being at the top of the list.

Here is a pic of my boys' litter mates. My daughter's friend and friend's aunt adopted the other two. The calico is Thea and the B&W is Storm. Storm was my buddy and it was so hard to turn him over to his new family. It was the only foster that I cried over.

You fosterers amaze me. I would never have the fortitude to give them up. I suppose, if I were the one screening potential owners.

Fall is a great time in my house for good light for indoor cat pics and got two that I love of my Joey Roo. The first one I posted in Facebook and a watercolor artist I follow wanted to paint it - Hell ya! Taken with the iPad mini, I think.

I will probably paint one of them (in oil). Next year, after I finish the cat painting I am on now and the forgery for next year's annual forgery show. I am a very slow painter. Or just have one of the large photos made LOL.
