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!

Last year just before Easter I lost my Persian, Tacey, to kidney disease. She was 16 and was a sweet companion. Two years ago I rescued my vampire cat, Merlin, and he has been a great help.

When Tacey died I was pretty distraught. I cried for months. I had her cremated so I could always have her with me. When I finally got to the point where I could, I sent her ashes in to have a memorial piece made. It takes about 2 months to get them back usually but the artist wasn’t on vacation so it took a bit longer. I was diagnosed with cancer and had my BMX and the DAY I got home from surgery there was this box in the mail. My memorial came home for me when I needed her most.

I can’t begin to tell you what that meant to me. Timing was amazing on that. I couldn’t lift it at the time, it’s too heavy, but I could hold it. It was like Tacey knew and waited to come home when I needed her most. So now I have her ashes in her carved wooden box, and a beautiful memorial piece that I can now hold to remember her.

This is my Tree of Life Glass memorial. The white at the base is the tree are the ashes they used to blow into the glass.

Wren, the timing of the arrival of that piece could not have been more perfect. I needed her right then, and there she was.

I posted my foster kitty for adoption yesterday. He was originally hospice but looks like he could live another 3-4 years now. He'll need a special adopter, but he's a total lap cat and that will help. He would probably like it if we put him in a baby front carrier and hauled him around all day.

What lovely cats you all have! I have a female mostly Maine Coon that we think is somewhere between 15-18 years old. She's the best cat we ever had and we are so glad she picked us at the shelter 11 years ago! She's not a lap cat at all, but last year when I had my surgery, a friend made me a comfort quilt and if that's on my lap, she becomes a lap cat. She never left my side after my surgery and seemed to sense where not to put her paws. Cats are amazing!!
