Thanks so much for posting this cutie!

Are the felines seen in your instagram gallery a collection over time or did/do you have them all at one once?

I'm glad you enjoy the gallery , all photos had been taked as collection (one by one , with a few days of difference). in the profile there are also some photos of my friend's ca.
Our cats are this one link called "Regina" and the other little one called birba link.
Both were abandoned , Regina in a box near a school and birba was found alone in the grass.

The story of birba is very sad. When we found she had a lot of problems and her life was almost on borderline. My sister with the help of a veterinary treat she with a lots of medicine and make it back to life. That's little cat was holding on life very strong and even if now has just one eye is still strong and very active (and the other one has the 30% of the original visibility ).

Woa this cat look the clone of my previous , also mine is lost.
I think there is some sort of curse with those orange cats , every cat i owned with the same hair color died in really bad way or gone lost whitout any trace.

Now has been 3 years..

Charlie & Patches

My two outdoor strays that I've been taking care of for 3 years. Unrelated but inseparable.

My Annabelle suddenly lost a lot of weight and started drinking a ton of water. Took her to the vet last week and got the verdict - diabetes. So now I have to give her insulin twice daily. I was afraid she'd start to fear me and the needle, but so far she doesn't mind and is much more interested in the treats I reward her with after each shot. It seems that, much like bikes, you think you own your pets but your pets come to own you. I experience that dichotomy in both regards...

These are Patches' babies from a few years ago. She showed up as a pregnant stray. She's since been fixed. No, Charlie's not the dad.

Why is it that when kitties have tufts of hair growing out of their ears it just adds to their cuteness whereas in my case it just makes me an ugly old geezer?

Which begs the question: is there an "n+1" rule for cats?

When we went to pick up our #2,they said "he has a sister, and we don't want to split them up." That's how we got #3. Apparently this is a common trick used by the people who run these things.

I like cats, but not living on a farm, the "n" in the equation, in my case, is definitely 1. Tim

Cats are not pets. They are either family or mobile, self-cleaning furniture.

And foot-warmers.

My two new shop cats. Black and white one is Mickey that I captured Feral kitten last August, he's about 10 months old now. The black one is Mr.B - He was "willed" to me by a friend who passed-away after a five year cancer battle. He is five years old. They are best buddies and keep me company at work.
