Such beautiful kitties....I love the "inbox cat"!

Bill the Cat is hilarious - I forgot about him until now!

My daughter has a sweet black and white Scottish fold named Beau. He's about 10 years old now, and had an interesting adventure 4 years ago. Soon after my daughter brought home my newborn grandson, Beau freaked out from the baby crying and bolted out the door when they were bringing in groceries. Daughter was devastated, posted a pic of Beau and her phone number, and stapled the pics on poles, fences, anywhere she could. They live in a large city, and she finally gave up hope of finding him.

3 months later, a very nice man called my daughter at 10PM and said he thought he saw Beau in his backyard. She went over there with his kitty treats and his carrier, not very hopeful. It did turn out to be Beau after all! Skinny, ragged, and scared, but Beau. The cat had crossed 8 lanes of busy Magic Mountain Parkway in Valencia and managed to survive. He doesn't go near the doors anymore.

That's wonderful----and sounds like a smaller version of Homeward Bound, which made me cry. (I cry in animal movies but rarely cry when humans get hurt/lost etc. My bad.)

Emotions get the better of me, animal or human. Happy or sad can make me tear up.

If it's the middle of the night, with no one around, they will target a place they are sure I will be walking in my bare feet. I had one of them, I'm never sure which one, spit a hairball right into my slipper!

Another reason I adore dogs. If they have to go, they tell you, they don't hide it. If they have to hork, they will do it right in front of you if you don't quite get their drift.

Ms Drama, sitting on my feet to subtly remind me that we are nearly THREE MINUTES LATE leaving for our last walk of the day!

Aww, sweetness!

Beagle keeps trying to bump food time back in 5 minute increments. She does not understand that no food comes until 3:30. Oh, OK, 3:20.

Somebody got trained here.

I'm so glad I am not home most of the time when the cats start whining at Shrek for their dinner. It used to be 4:30 PM, he's given in so many times it is now 3'30 PM...they start at 2:30...
