Here is Finch (AKA "The Humongous" and "The Boy") on the bed with his buddy Ben

And this is Henry (AKA "Little Basta*d" and "My Son") and Fiona (AKA Darling).

And here they are again keeping me company while I work.

Some really great looking cats in here, they all look so cute when their kittens it's a shame they have to grow up . Looking through some pictures I found a few of my cat Stripe or Stripey as we call him the night he found me Striper fishing under a bridge, I had my wife come and get him & bring him home. The first thing she did was put him at the food dish which she thought he would empty because he was starving, he then jumped down & went right for the toy box pulling all kinds of toys out & started playing with them, she knew right there that he was staying. As soon as I came home I jumped in the shower & got comfortable in my chair he jumped up and also got comfortable like he lived here all along. Now at 26lbs I asked him today, what happened to the cute little kitten I bought home, did you eat him





I don't know how my wife sleeps with him like this, I can't.




Talk about cats liking small spaces, Snuffy finds anything he can to take a nap in ( no box is safe in our home)

Sorry about the delay.
Thank you photogravity, but if you like him there, you should see him with daylight, when it realy shows his charm. He's very funny, very much loved, and the most noble, reliable, trustworthy being. In many ways he behaves like a dog, fetching anything I throw, following me anywhere, wellcoming anybody home... He makes me laugh.

P.E. I forgot to quote

No box or basket is safe! Aren't they wonderful creatures?
Here's my basket case.

95 lb Sam and his 11 lb cat, Woody. Woody loves the stink of an old dog. Yes they are the same colour.

Ah, I found a picture of Booger. The best cat ever. Died at the age of 4-1/2 years, of his second cancer. He had a sense of humor, I swear.

He liked to be dirty. He's dirty in this picture, after rolling in the dirt. He also liked to play in the snow and get soaked in the rain. I even poured water on him when he was inside, and he stayed still for that.

Our superpowered cat, Thunderhead, or "Tunderkitty" as I call her.



She is 13 years old and recently underwent radioiodine therapy for a misbehaving thyroid and is doing really well... is starting to show some low level kidney problems typical of senior cats but expect she will be with us for many more years.

Keeping her on medications would have been more costly and more detrimental to her long health than the radiation therapy she received and that wasn't cheap either... considering she has been a great healthy cat she has not cost us a great deal over her bile filled existence.
