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!

Great pic, CAMommy.

We had to take Frida to the vet a while back and my DH was trying to put her into the carrier. He had her by the back legs and scruff of her neck. Just as he was about to pop her in, she got her back feet free and spread out all 4 paws (with claws out) as wide as possible and looked like a cartoon cat. He was getting scratched and I was no help because I was doubled over with laughter. We now have a bigger crate for her and it's easier.

I wish we had a like button so we could click it on the pictures, so many beautiful kitties. One time I was having the house sprayed and I had to take Frank to work with me I got him in the carrier and of course he escaped as I was getting him in the car but bless his dumb heart he just went back to the couch and I was able to catch him again.

Our first cat went from Houston to Anchorage to Oklahoma City and back to Houston. Then went back to OKC for a cat show. She would sit in the suitcase to make sure we would pack her. Loved to travel.

My sister & her adult daughter live about an hour apart and babysit each other's cats when one or the other is out of town. So, those cats spend lots of time driving back & forth between their two homes. They are PERFECT travelers in a car......like two bobble-head cat dolls. I am very jealous!

CAMommy, I loved the photo of Dusty doing the starfish on the bed, so funny lol.

KiwiCatMom, the cat hospital soap opera was hilarious! My cats would never be able to act like those cats, they wouldn't stand still for their parts, they're way too busy, when they're not napping!

Ruth, so sweet the photo of Henry and Oreo :))

FeelingFeline, wow Arthur's eyes are so beautiful and green, like emeralds, a beautiful tabby boy!

None of my girlfriends have cats and I was starting to feel like the crazy cat lady when our family included four felines! It wasn't planned, honest. They were just homeless cats that over the years found their way to my welcome doorstep and I couldn't say no. We have 3 cats now since Pumpkin passed in January. I still miss her.

Thank you Smaarty for starting this great thread.

Aww..Lump was beautiful. I agree with Donna - just want to pet that furry tummy! So hard when they pass, but they bring such joy when they share their lives with us.

Donna - four cats does not a crazy cat lady make. I love cats. I love dogs. I love alpacas. I love sheep (not for dinner). I love Charlie the Cheetah. You get the picture...I'm an animal nut. We have eight cats. So everyone thinks I'm the nutty cat lady. But it's not me. It's my husband. He's a nutty cat man. When I met him 9 years ago, I had Jay, who was 18, and Nitro, who was about 3. Then DH came to the US and a lady asked us to babysit a cat she was fostering as she had a family emergency. So we ended up with Romeo. Sadly, Jay passed away, so we were back to two. We move to NZ. Go into a pet food store and this kitten climbs up on my husband. That added Turbo to the family. Then we go to the vet (two years later) and there's two kittens there at Christmas time. My husband announces that he wants one for Christmas. I asked which one, and he said I could decide which one stayed behind and alone for Christmas. So we added GC and Lucypurr. Then we went to buy cat food at a pet food store and there's this cute tuxedo kitty with a perfect white moustache. She's my fault...that's Frida.

So, I foster a momcat and six kittens. Momcat got spayed and went back to her owner and 3 kittens got adopted out. The two girls weren't big enough to be spayed yet, and one of the boys had a bad eye. So DH decides we should keep the boy with the bad eye to make sure he'll "get the care he needs". So we now have Tom. Sadly, GC disappeared, and has not yet returned. I get the girl fosters spayed and am going to take them into the Kitten Inn for adoption. And DH says that Tom will be lonely without them so we should keep one. I asked which one and he said, "Well, how would you choose? I guess we'd better keep them both." Hence Moppet and MIttens. Now, I am a willing participant, but it's really not entirely my fault!

Here's a shot of DH with Tom (left) and Mittens.
