My boyfriend has 5 cats so it can get a little crazy at times. He had the similar case of a taking in a pregnant cat and winding up keeping the kittens (they're now 7-ish, so no longer kittens I suppose )

I should post some pictures of my naked kitties when I get the chance to. Sophie is now an old lady and Violet is a maniac.

Callie and Fergus agree that life is lovely when relaxing.




Bronwyn and Finnula the first day we brought them into the house, almost three years ago.

Kitties really know how to relax

Yours are so pretty.

Mine should be relaxing right now, just as i should be at work. Truth is im at home today and the kitties are running around the house like galloping horses. They will tire soon i suppose.

Here is our tribe: Callie, Bronwyn, Fergus, and Finnula. When we bought this house in 2006, we moved in with one cat, Callie. In a couple of months we adopted the big ginger boy that had been hanging around the back yard and named him Fergus. In 2012, a feral mama cat had kittens under our shed and finally decided that the kits were old enough for them not to need her any more. We had to take them in, and named them Bronwyn and Finnula. <3


Great picture of the entire family.

Thanks for the kind words. We all miss Keto too.. Especially my daughter who is just 4 but every now and then she asks if we can go bring him home once he gets better in Heaven. Ironically, Keto was barely tolerant of her. He just wasn't used to being around kids and how she wanted to play with his toys and touch him all the time, etc. He dealt with it by staying away from her as far as possible most of the time.

As to a new cat, we'd love to get another but it will be a while due to family circumstances. We now have my mom living with us and she is just not a pet person and also allergic so it might be a long time before we can get another cat.

Thanks VP, I loved taking the pictures and do miss doing that. I tried taking pictures of other people's pets but, I found its just not the same. maybe because I don't have the same daily bond with them. I'll get a good pic every now and then but not quite like I used to get with Keto.

But life moves on.

Glad to hear your appreciation of your own brood.

Maybe you can visit the animal shelter or friends who have cats for a little "fuzz therapy"? I hope never to be without a cat again!

I know! We still think of them as "the littles" or "the kits."

No cats on tables or counters - I can remember being naive and idealistic, too. It's a losing battle that I quickly stopped trying to fight. I figure I'm immune to cat germs now, so it's all good.

Thanks MsPurrl! I really need to get recent pictures of the others. The camera on my phone is crap, unless the lighting is absolutely perfect.
This morning after breakfast, i was cleaning the kitchen when i heard some chattering. I looked over to see Oreo on the kitchen table again, chattering away at a squirrel he saw outside in a tree. I had my phone handy and thought this would be a good time to take a picture of him

How right you are. This was later yesterday they cuddled up together in one of the bedrooms.

Sleepy cats on a comfy bed! I could go for a nap right about now.

so sweet!


I always feel bad for Wesley that he's an "only" cat and doesn't have a friend to play with and snuggle with. I would love to get another one but I just can't afford to have more than one.

Pretty boys!

I remember when you first got them. Weren't you going to try to keep them in only one room? Or am I thinking of someone else?
