I got a couple earlier of our oldest cat, Winter, enjoying the comforts of home.................
His brother, Pumpkin
And the rats, Madison and Jasmine
Yup. There isn't a day that goes by in which Winston doesn't make me laugh out loud at least once.
Shadow, Hallow, and Pumpkin were strays. Because we live in the country, people from town throw their unwanted cats out here and these three made their way to us a couple years ago. It was pretty clear that they had also been abused and didn't even know how to play. Even now, Pumpkin flinches if you reach for him too fast, to pet him, like he expects to get hit. Hallow is like a needy little boy who follows me around like a lost puppy, and Shadow is very jumpy, doesn't like loud noises, and has a completely dysfunctional, broken tail.
Winter, by contrast, who was raised by us from 10 days old and has known nothing but a life of love and ease, is like an overgrown kitten.
That cat looks just like Tigerbait, a great cat we had for over 10 years before an unfortunate encounter with a mountain lion.
That sounds like how we got our last 2 cats, which were either abandoned or dumped in our rural area.

Our newest stray to adopt us , Blue Boy, seems to have been dumped up the block and kept moving until he found a home.
Which in this case is ours. Anyway, he is the official outdoor cat until our older female cat lets him in!
He has also runs the neighborhood leashless dogs away, which is very cool to watch.
Frankly, I can't imagine such cats being unwanted.

George's stare is very penetrating.
Much as I love cats, there's something about the Siamese variety that makes me a little uneasy. They always look as though they're plotting something....

That mean old Disney . . . never thought he liked cats much. The animal villain in "Cinderella was a cat. I believe he had to make "The Aristocats" years later due to the criticism from cat lovers.
Quite frankly, I sleep with one eye open.
George wants to have a word with you.
Just wanted to send blessings and hopeful prayers to all you whom have saved a kitty or doggie from any type of abusive past/prior dirtbag owner.
George -kitty looks as if he's saying "I can have Strat and amp too?"..His paw is resting gently on the amp to guitar cable
In our case, I suspect Pumpkin and Hallow were owned by people who wanted "cute little kittens" and when they no longer were, they got abusive with them and then abandoned them. It took four days for me to get Pumpkin to come to me and get taken inside and, not joking, 8 weeks to get Hallow to even let me touch him. They were both desperate for attention, yet terrified of people. Shadow showed up a couple months after we had those two in and, in the beginning, while he did come straight to me, was incredibly jumpy, not liking loud sounds, plastic bags, or anything unexpected. They all still have issues from past memories, but they are much more relaxed and happy now.
Well. You didn't tell me all that. I been callin "that orange cat".
Maybe you want to learn to play his theme song?
Same here. The cats took a while to observe us and decide to trust us.
Remember dogs have owners and cats have staff. Gotta go mine are calling......
do i have a choice? are you baiting me to say the wrong word as in/cat/rooster like the troglodytes were?!?
