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!

Wow I love this thread - so many beautiful cats!

Monica, losing them is so hard. To avoid the pain you would have to have a heart of stone. XXX

Julie, great photo of you and Dusty. Can't decide which of you is more beautiful, you are both so handsome!

Pantrah that is such a fab photo of Willow. I had a Willow too, RIP 2004. My Willow was called after the movie character Willow Ufgood.

Wren I had a retrieving cat too - Primrose. I have had a lot of cats over a 35 year span and Primrose was the only retriever, she loved to fetch little knitted balls. All my photos of her are predigital - one of the tasks on the to-do list is to "digitise" all of my old photos.

Teka, Arthur's a birder too. We had very good success with the birds-be-safe anti-birding collar but he has now lost both of the ones we ordered. I am wondering if the collar's bright appearance may have attracted some kids to take it off - it looks like a bit like a bandana, the sort you see on dogs sometimes. Of course maybe he was just clever enough to go and lose them himself.

http://www.birdsbesafe.com/ this is the website for the antibirding collars

One of the most colourful feline characters I had the privilege to serve was my Beastie. Beastie died at 18 in Dec 2011, right before my DX. She was the last of a quite large number of cats I had had (yes crazy cat lady numbers) and because of getting DX I did not look for any new cat to fill the vaccuum until Arthur barged in our front door (literally) in spring 2014.

Beastie when she was young had a great penchant for dairy food. Her daring, stealth and skill were worthy of a ninja. I remember having to run around the house while trying to eat a bowl of cereal and milk because if I sat down she would leap on me. If I was anywhere near high furniture like dressers or kitchen cupboards she would dive bomb me - leaping onto my shoulder from behind to conveniently land face first in my bowl. Her other great feat was she could hook the topping off a pizza as it came fresh from the oven. I would take the pizza out wearing oven gloves and suddenly out of nowhere a claw would stick out from the kitchen counter beside the oven and suddenly I was holding a nice pizza base covered in tomato sauce and the rest of the pizza (the cheese) was on the floor and entering Beastie's digestive system. I was living in Kerry, in the west of Ireland at this time and she got nicknamed "the fastest claw in the west".

She calmed down when she got older, and she died purring.

This is Beastie a couple of years before she died

CAMommy this is Toby


After we took in Arthur in May 2012 this cat arrived on back doorstep, thin, starving etc. DH was very against encouraging him but faced a ratio of 3:1 family members on this. Eventually DH came round to the "right" way of thinking, on condition he could name the cat. Cat was named Nimba (combination of Simba and Nimbus cloud). Of course we put up some "found cat" posters (which was when I took this photo) and promptly discovered he belongs to neighbours in the next street! The reason he's thin is because he's elderly. He also goes and begs food at several other houses in the neighbourhood. Now that we know he has a home we have to discourage him also he actually sprays in the house if he gets in and as he's not ours we can't neuter him. A few months will go by where we don't see him then suddenly he'll get the idea to try us as a food source again. Arthur is very timid around him as Toby is clearly the dominant male. I have not found an effective way of discouraging him though.

Signs Your Obsession with Cats is GETTING OUT Of CONTROL

1.Pictures on your phone are mostly of your cat. 2.You take more selfies with your cat than with your friends. 3.You save plastic bags and boxes, not because you're environmentally conscious, but because you know your cat will love playing with them. 4.Nothing is better than looking at your cat sit on a glass table from below. 5.Going on vacation comes with mixed emotions because the thought of leaving your cat is PRETTY DAMN SAD. (Sounds pretty reasonable actually) 6.You refuse to fix that drip in your sink because you know your cat likes to drink 7.You've accepted you don't own your cat, your cat owns you and it's a privilege to live in their house.
