New Kitty Photos



This is Katie. She is our oldest cat, born in 2001; we brought her here from Pennsylvania. She's a Maine Coon cat; they are large cats, with long fur. Her role in our "cat household" is the diva; she thinks she rules the roost.



This is Tinkerbell, the female half of the duo we adopted four years ago. She and her brother, Tiger came to us together as ferals. They were living somewhere behind our house and came up and introduced themselves. She is our laziest cat and has become quite fat. She reminds me a bit of Jabba the Hutt, but she is very sweet. See all that white fur? It's ALL OVER our house!



This is Tiger, the male half of the duo we adopted as ferals from our back yard. At first we named them Tinkerbell and Tigerlily, but when we found out this one was a male, we renamed him Tiger. Tiger is the most introverted of our cats. He always seems to be thinking deep thoughts; I call him my "Zen cat".



This little black kitty is Munchkin, our most recent adoptee. She was a feral, too, part of a litter of four who are identical except she was the smallest and has a little white spot on her chest. She was friendly from day one and seemed to want to come inside to live with us. She is the most extroverted of our cats. She is very active and affectionate. Strangely, she and Tiger (the extrovert and the introvert) have become best friends.



These are two of the remaining feral cats who live outside our house. We call them Spot and Little Blondie. They seem to have become friends, too. All of the ferals are friendly with each other, like a little community. This amazes me.

Lovely. We have cat hair all over the house too, mixed with black labrador hair. I like to think of it as insulation.....

Having white cat fur all over the house is still something my husband is getting used to, taking in our daughter's cat which he is allergic to. A true labour of love for him - me, a cat lover from way back, am thrilled to have her -I sympathised with his resignation and annoyance while secretly jumping up and down in happiness!
Lovely photos!

Thank you for showing us these dearies. Cat hair billows about my house like tumbleweed.

Thank you all for your cat-loving comments. We understand each other, cat hair and all!
I feel as if I am in good company.
