PF, do you think Shrek might like a few of those kibbles?
He prefers chocolate pudding with whipped cream...

I got the Purina Gentle, it's a new formula, got just a little bag to see if they liked it...I better get a bigger bag. Especially if Shrek is going to be eating it.

He's handsome and looks like a sweety.

His poor left hind leg usually drags behind and now his right hind leg he tends to walk on top of his toes. That's how the left leg started. He's lost bowel control but so far still urinates outside. Just about everytime he gets up he leaves a "gift." He still seems happy so we keep putting it off.

So sweet! I've always loved black cats. I had two when I was in undergrad school, they answered to their names. They could also open cabinet doors.

Cats are so smart - they quickly learn things that benefit them. My Mr. Blackee gives me a 'high five' whenever I walk past him, he learned he would get extra loves and a bunch of 'good kitty!' when he does that. It's so funny. He waves his paw in the air and does that combination purr-meow thing.

My dad despised cats. Absolutely hated them. Of course, my cats at the time knew that, and I have a picture somewhere that has them peeking out of his jacket sleeves.

Such a pretty kitty, Cheryl! ~ Not all cats are smart. Midnight was. She answered when you called her, sat up if you told her to "beg" for a treat, would rub herself against your ankle if you asked "do you love me"? LittleBit, on the other hand, was sweet but dumb. Made us wonder sometimes how her kind ever survived for all these centuries.

LOL! Latte gives you that look that means she would hold up her middle finger, if she had one, while doing what you ask or tell her to do. Smudge just complains the whole time, talks back.
