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!

Queenie, I loved your story. I love it when a cat and owner reunite at the shelter. We had a cat we couldn't do much with because it was so shy. When it was posted as available a woman called saying it was her cat. Turned out her (now ex) boyfriend turned the cat in for adoption. When she started talking to the cat, it came out of the covered side of the kennel and kissed her. No doubt about it being her cat. Very heartwarming.

Devon Rexes are known for sitting like little old men. My two don't do that, but Joey Roo decided he would recline like an old man, everything hanging out. Had to take a few snaps as I might not see it again.

Henry will play 'chase' until he's sick of it; then he'll jump up on something and glare. Puppies are a little too enthusiastic after awhile!

Try Feliway (from your vet or online). It's a plug-in air diffuser that puts cat-calming scents into the air. I was at wits end with one of my cats and it really worked!!! I never had to check when it needed a refill, because once it was low, Oreo immediately started peeing on things again. Feliway extended his life by many years!

Frankie is gorgeous do you have to help her groom? I had a semi long hair (Marley) years ago, he used to get knots if he didn't get a little help from his friends. No digital photos of Marley unfortunately. His life time was in the days of film cameras.

Yes, Frankie has what the vet called "cotton fur". It mats if you so much as look at it the wrong way, but luckily the mats are easy to brush out and she loves being brushed! She had help with the cat tree, I actually have two other cats as well. They are also both long hair cats but one never has mats and the other only rarely. Frankie is just a hot mess of a cat. :) (Feliway had zero effect, by the way)

Haha, scrunchthecat. My cats have been known to do that too! Two of them know how to pop open the kitchen cabinet doors and sometimes I come down in the morning or after being gone all afternoon and all the lower cabinet doors are open because they've been scrounging for snacks. I thought about moving the cat food and treats to an upper level cabinet but I figured that was just asking for trouble. :)

Here is Max, the "community cat." Most days he comes around to the back stoop and asks for Temptations treats. Of course he gets them. Three Friday nights ago he came around limping, with his brow, an eye, and a paw injured, so we took him to the Hospital. He was very brave and cooperative.

Here is our little boy, Bunny. He turned two years old last week. He cannot have dry treats, nor any dry food.

Scrunch that packet is a familiar sight. We have to lock up all the food. Arthur's speciality is getting ten or twelve pouches of wet food and mopping the floor with the contents. It's not pretty.

Oh, that reminds of the Christmas my girls put Temptation pouches under the tree for the cats. Yup, they opened them during the night. That was the same year DS brought us a dried squid from Japan. Nope, the cats did not try to get that. Now what does that tell you. I told hubby if the cats don't want it, I'm not trying it. DS loves it, btw.
