Meet my two new cats!

Post by webwriter » Fri Nov 03, 2006 9:24 am

Not being able to bear an empty house without at least one cat, I headed to the animal shelter a day after I lost Tabitha and adopted a calico cat named Waffles. I nicknamed her "Mama Doll" because she is a rather large cat. When I first bought her home, Waffles hid in the closet for two days before coming out. She's now sleeping on one of the dining room chairs.

About a week later, I adopted a male cat named Columbus. Columbus has tabby markings and a somewhat shaggy coat and tail. He is 10 years old, but is a real affectionate sweetie who reminds me of my Tabitha. He has one or two little health issues with his kidneys, but so far has been to the vet and is doing well. I just love him! He enjoys playing too.

Oh, I'm glad you adopted some more cats and sorry about Tabitha. I noticed that you couldn't resist rescuing a cat with health problems. You've had your share of those and had to nurse them along. Those are some lucky cats.

I inherited 4 cats where I live but I haven't seen one of them for about 3 weeks so I don't have a good feeling about that. They usually just hang around the property but this one was a bit psycho. He liked to take off for a couple of days at a time, and then show up when he felt like it. Then another cat showed up and has made this his second home every day at meal time. He was scared at first too and now he thinks he's one of the family.

Hope that you see the cats again, Mauveduh. And your story about the cat that keeps showing up reminds me of all of the times that a cat keeps coming around my sister's house. My sister has been feeding that cat, a female with tabby markings, for quite a long time. Lately, the cat has allowed my sister to pet her. Now, my sister wants to catch her and take her to the vet, then guess what ---- bring her to my house, LOL. She wants the cat to be protected during the cold winter months.

Nice to know ive joined a forum that has cat lovers!!
I have my own kitty called Trinity she is 8 months old and is a british chocolate short hair. I had just moved out of home where my mother had a cat that used to relax with me and i missed her that much i had to buy one, the only problem is i am alergic to cats so had to choose a specific breed so not to have too much of an alergic reaction!!
Im afraid of losing her so she has become a house cat!!

Welcome. There are plenty of cat lovers around here....

You may be a candidate for the new hypoallergenic cats coming on the market. The proteins in their bodily secretions have been genetically altered and they aren't supposed to cause allergies. hmmmm....

They will be available early next year and you can order now if you have an extra $4,000. laying around. :-)

... only if you like to walk them, which I don't. That's why I have cats, which only need love, food and good care. They don't need to be walked.

Well, you can do that if you like. For my part, I still don't like to walk dogs, especially when it's too cold, too hot, too rainy or windy or when I drank too much coffee and need to use the bathroom badly. Btw, I've had plenty of experience walking my sister's dogs, especially her white husky, Chloe, who just loves to run. One hot, humid June afternoon, Chloe ran away as I was changing her leash. I ran after her, across wide lawns. Every time I got within yelling range, that damn Chloe ran. Finally, one of the neighbors caught and held on to her. By that time, my sister had arrived in her jeep and helped me to get Chloe inside.

When we got back to her house, my dad was standing on the corner, in spite of his illness, waiting for us. Chloe was his favorite dog. She was constantly at his side, sleeping when he slept, eating when he ate. Sometimes I think that Chloe helped my dad live a little longer. Yet, that dog is much too active for me.

So true!

And cats are cuddly and affectionate. My Columbus is a real sweetie and I hope that I have him for a long time. He's ten years old.
