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!

Our bathroom has in floor heating so this is where you find 2 of the 3 cats at night. One sleeps closer to the outer wall which is the warmest spot and the other sleeps on one of the throw rugs. Since they cannot have a rubber backing they are like sleeping on a heating pad. They grouse at you if you have to disturb them at all.

The picture looks like my Louie. Bothe Miss Felix and Midnight Louie are heat seekers. Miss Felix sleeps in front of the refrigerator on a folded towel. I tried a pillow, but she didn't want it. Louie sleeps in the bed, on the couch, on a chair, on a cushion, or where ever he wants.

Lovely poem and oh, so true. Why do we waste so much money on cat toys when their favorite space is a cardboard box or an empty clothes basket? Two of mine actually sleep in a cardboard scratching box (next to 2 plush cat beds) which to me resembles a bed of nails.

Last night we couldn't find Bella. She hadn't eaten or used her box all day. I have a wonderful flashlight and looked everywhere upstairs, under things, etc. and couldn't find her. After about 45 mins of both of us looking and caller her name, she saunters down to the main floor to get some petting. We have no idea where she was hiding.

Lumpectomy and re-excision followed by mastectomy of right breast. Five years of anastrasole completed.

I’ve cleaned out DHs closet, put some Christmas things in it Had the bi-fold doors closed. Apparently MrNosey doesn’t like closed doors. I don’t want him pawing anything off the shelves. So I booby trapped the doors, with my grabber across the doors.

I just heard a crash.

And now there is a rather unhappy kitty on my recliner. 🤣🤣

Well Wrenn we are getting a look into Queen Bella's personality haha

Spookiesmom my Lucy cat was that nosey. I could never ever leave anything open or slightly ajar because she would be in it before I could blink.

Wren thank goodness Bella was fine, but that must have been a very anxious 45 minutes.

Although we have an easy to use, in-built, folding attic ladder, we always had to have two people to get something from, or put something away in, the attic when our dear Arthur was alive.

One person was to do the actual job, the other person had to stand at the bottom of the ladder and prevent Arthur racing up into the attic. He would come from anywhere when he heard the creak of the spring in the attic hatch door. If you weren't vigilant he would get up there, hide in the edges of the roof and refuse to come down. We'd have to leave it open for him to come down in his own sweet time. of course the attic was also not a cat friendly environment - fibre glass insulation, splinters etc...

Louie does disappear from time to time. Both he and Miss Felix can open cabinets and bifold doors. Louie can open some of the bedroom door and sometimes can open the patio door. It has a lever handle. Door knobs can be difficult for me.
