C is for Cats!

Today I'm giving a shout out to the critters that share our home. First up, is Skittles.  Skittles came to us from a neighbor who'd found him when he was just a couple weeks old.  He was just a bare handful at the time but now has grown in to quite a big lapful. My hubby belongs to him.

Here's a recent picture.  The above was taken the day we got him.

Next came Scamper.  She took a ride under a car hood to Walmart one day when she was about 5 weeks old and we just happened to be the ones who chased her across the parking lot several times, and ended up bringing her home. My oldest daughter belongs to her.
 This was taken shortly after we brought her home.  She's a bit shy but has a pretty color.

Our most recent addition is Rumple, short for Rumplestiltskin. He showed up at the church on New Year's Eve, spent the night and most of the next day, which just happened to be Sunday. Rumple seems to have claimed me but likes to share his love among the whole family.

So, that's the felines that live here. What about you, got a special cat?

We have a 16-yr-old cat who is a tyrant. She owns my husband - if he isn't seated when she wants to land in his lap, she will prowl the house calling for him.

Awww! That first pic of the baby kitty is INCREDIBLY cute!

No cats for me, I'm a dog house. But my mother decided last year that she wanted a pet and was done with the constant "neediness" of dogs. She ended up with the world's neediest (and cross eyed!) cat. :)

The kitten, so cute! We are pet-less at the moment. We are pretty much dog people, but my daughter loves cats. Many of her stuffed animals are cats. A while back, she got scratched by a friend's cat because she didn't understand its warnings to back off. But after brooding a bit, she forgave the cat, is a bit wiser, and loves them as much as ever.

Skittles was really cute when small. Course all kittens (and puppies) are cute when they are little. Then they grow up.
