New kitty in Tude's life ... and his name is TUGGER!!

Yep, I've been living with 3 half grown cats plus two older cats - all females except for this one and all of them at one time in their lives have been rescue kittens.

Especially this male - he's a sweetie - totally a Tom Cat though. He's a queer sort of little guy, not an overly friendly sort of cat who likes to be petted, but likes it when he does ... my goodness - HE'S ALL CAT!!

hehe, he does have some issues - being a feral cat for a few months, but he'll be fine, my first cat was feral. I will howeve, have to do something with my fish - as Tugger luvs to look at them Offered my friend (whom I'm living with in the house of COMMUNE) at the moment to take him when I go - but with the stipulation that within the next few weeks this guy is SNIPPED. So SNIPPED it will be!

And his name shall be "Tugger" cause he's a banananananananananana looking pretty orangey looking tabby with yellow eyes ... --- Banananan Tugger would just be too long.

Ahem, pardonnnne amoi.



And he's pretty too!

pics coming!

For some stoooopid reason, my new camera doesn't like my old computer with newer 2000 software - something really stoooopid about only liking a USB port on the back, ahem BACK, of the computer.

grrr, snarl, and I've got Tugger pics too!



Does this mean I have to send out "birth" announcements of a Tugger?????

I hope pics are coming!

This thread is incredibly lacking without them.

Taerom will be heartbroken if he sees a cat threat without pics!

Grrr kitty.

I woke up this morning, and as usual, as my alarm clock went of my cats ran towards their food bowls only to return a few seconds later realizing that i'm moving slower today.

So for the next 20 mins i laid in bed and they tried to get my attention. Finally, while laying on my back, my little guy jumps up on my chest and takes a seat, my little girl sitting next to me. I open my eyes and they are both staring at me. I got the picture...

Kittens are by far the most effective alarm clock.

My little 9 lb dog of 16 plus years did that for a long time. Ohhhhh I didn't want to get up - don't want to wake up and - Noooooooo ... there she was, planted on my chest with her head about 3 inches from my face - and with her big eyeballs - looking from each of my eyes - left to right - and back again ---- watching every movement I made - looking anxiously for an eyelid to move ... We had several of those face offs - she usually won as I'd fall back to sleep - and make a small movement which she took as THANK DOG - MOM'S AWAKE!!!!!!!!!!! LICK!!!! LICK!!!! WAHOOOOO!!! MOM'S AWAKE!!! Now ... take me outside and BTW I'm hungry too.

Aren't they? 5:00 every morning my two start digging at the covers next to me and pawing at my face until I get up. They are so cute!

He's a good looking cat Tude. He looks a lot like my orange tabby, Harley. I admire you for being able to handle six cats. My two got on a rampage of chasing each other around the house last night, right at bedtime. I found all sorts of stuff turned over, rugs moved, pilllows tossed on the floor, etc. this morning. Gotta love 'em though.

hehe, they were in "jail" the other night. Two older females (ugh, in full blown heat) were down in their cage in the basement ... and my cat and the other two half grown kittens were killing themselves in the house.

2 am. CCCCCCCRRRRAAAASSSSSHHHHHHH!!!

Another vase bites the dust! And the kittens are banished to the basement cage

One of the adult female cats drags all the stuffed animals around ... she's been taking a liking to my Serta Sheep too (grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr) and have had to snatch my poor sheep from all sorts of nooks and crannys - funny as hell though to see this smallish cat with a big stuffed rabbit in her mouth lugging it around. My friends call it Mimsy.

Lil tomcat BanananananneerrrsTugger would be proud.

I'm allergic to them. Ours lives outside.

Step-mom just got a wild kitten to replace the two very old house cats who passed on earlier this year. It is apparently allergic to people. She says she's seen it 3 or 4 times in the two months it's been there. Nice to have a pet like that.

Nice addition.

My wife kids me because I'm such a cat guy. We have two, but I'm always hinting that more is better. She thinks I'd be the looney with 60 cats if she weren't there to temper my inclinations...
