What do you figure the chances are that LiB has a piece of ribbon sewed to the back of his housecoat, and spends 45 minutes every evening, running up and down the hall, to give the cat some fun?

Re: My cat adoption story

Fab Pussy story

Our Pudding beats her age, weighing at 23+ Still going strong but sleeping a lot and getting a bit thin (compared to when we adopted her aged about 3- hence her name).

Just got back from 3 weeks in UK and she was mightily pleased to see us- she can still purr for England! Not so keen on Minou, our recently adopted 3 legged Burmese (about 1 year old) deciding to join in the reunion cuddle. Like Big M- cats and dogs always adopt us, not t'other way round.

Minou must be keeping Pudding busy cats at that age are so energetic and burmese usually love being the centre of attention. I hope Pudding gets adapted to he new housemate.

Re: My cat adoption story

LOL don't worry- Pudding has her own suite of rooms - and so has Minou and our 2 'borrowed' dogs the joys of a large house with lots of doors and a couple of baby gates . He just managed to sneak upstairs as we were taking suitcases up yesterday

Back to Lib's pussy now

Re: My cat adoption story

Ours was a tiny 5 week old fluff ball who liked to sleep in a box of tissues when we adopted him after his mother was killed by a car.
He's now a very robust six year old cat who likes to make himself comfy on the sofa:

Re: My cat adoption story

A great way to impress the ladies, LiB.

Still.. Aaaaaah... to all pics in this thread.

We went by the place of owner of the cat we kept last year, the apartment smelled heavily of M and the furry thing looked stoned

Re: My cat adoption story

I love them, wow so beautiful cats.
We adopted two brothers last september, they make my life so happy. We are keeping them indoors, but we have a huge garden. I will post later about advice when our move to Zurich is closer.

Re: My cat adoption story

Nice timing reactivating this thread. I adopted two cats yesterday, I was up all night because one was crying. Poor thing. Looking orward to being considered good enough to be their slave.

Re: My cat adoption story

Our tripod Minou is so wonderful, and gets on so well now with our sort of adopted shared dogs. But I've just witnessed something.... he caught a mouse and dropped it by the kitchen stairs on the patio- to go and hunt some more down in the orchard.

Down came that massive crow... that sidestepped like a crab from grass to patio- stopped, watched, stopped, watched - got the mouse and off he went. Wonder if a long-term symbiotic will develop. I always had a tamed crow as a child- would love to have another one, but free.

Watched from my bedroom window just over.
