I have two.

One is always thinking about playing. He's quite skinny. He is a brown/grey tabby. He also eats whatever he can find, even frozen foods.

My other cat is black and white and when she isn't sleeping, she's scared out of her mind. She scares really easily.

I'm now down to one, an elderly black green-eyed lady. Six months ago, I lost her 15-year-old half-brother (kidney failure); six months before that, his gorgeous calico and very cheeky sister, from cancer.

My black cat and tabby are boys. The tabby is a snuggly kitteh. The black cat is the youngest and likes to chase the tabby all night playing. The maine coon is a gal and she is stand offish. She is seen at feeding time and when she decides you are worthy to pet her.

Please post some pictures!

We had three cats but lost them all to various diseases.

Of course. A cat who truly knows the proper order of things.  :laugh:

I don't have cats currently although I had many growing up but never cared much for them. They wee semi-feral. But my friend has the -sorry for the word-cutest black cat I've seen. He's as eager as a dog. Not much of the usual cat indolence.

Cats have ways of charming even the most hardened cynic. Forty years of having cats in my life has taught me much, including this.

Not all of them . The last tomcat I had you couldn't touch him cause he would bite or scratch you. But he wasn't fixed and would leave the house for days on a row. His seed I have reason to believe is strong upon the earth.

Not all cats can get through to people who dislike cats. But there are cats who do, and do a mighty good job of it.  ;)

The board used to have a feature that allowed to upload photos on the forum server but it does not work now.

Here and now (well...sometimes...)
We have 4--a scruffy, knotted, curly-tongued 1/2 Maine coon; a beautiful blue-eyed chubby 1/2 Siamese; an orangey-buff colored male who rules the roost (we call him King Baby--he acts like a king but meows like a baby--but his name is Ziggy  8)); and an outside grey tabby semi-feral who just showed up one day and stuck around for the great dining!

My cat is a Californian boy, Lucci the ragdoll. Awesome guy but I do not know how to post pics. Every time I try, the page says, Folder is too full, etc. Cats could be so graceful.... this is not the case with him. He is just plain hilarious. But he likes to fetch sticks and plays with puzzle toys by himself. He is also very affectionate, and purrs all the time, even when you try to move him off the couch. Lucci also leaks people he likes! He properly holds my husband's head with his paws and leaks his forehead and face and hair. My son has a cat Sebastien, Himalayan ball of fur. We thought she was a boy when we got her. Then I noticed how much she admires my jewelry or anything that shines. And voila! It is a girl (named Sebastien :) She also gets high on coffee and cares nothing for catnip. I used to have a German Sheppard, very handsome dog. He also loved cats :)

I love cats, but have never been able to keep one. My ex had those two wonderful yellow tabbies, Riko and Lulu, father and daughter. An old curmudgeon and a dumb blonde, as his mother put it, but both adorable. They both died last year, within a few months from each other; Riko first, of old age complications, and Lulu from loneliness. :'( I'll see if I can find pics; it's been a long time...

If I'm lucky this year, I'd like to get a new place and adopt a couple of cats. :)

Dude.  You have three cats.  And pics of them on your phone.  Man card revoked.
Negative, technically one is mine, i never called them any frilly adjectives, and I think a dog would be a better pet.

Another one witty comment by our resident ding-dong.  BTW, is it common for Polocks with identity issues to wish other Christians dead?
 Calling someone a "resident ding-dong" is hardly appropriate behavior and is a flagrant violation of the rule against ad-hominems and insults. You're warned for 20 days. If you disagree with this warning, please pm me.

My house has one neutered tomcat with grey fur, a white tuxedo pattern on his chest and white socks on his feet. He also has only a stub for a tail after having had most of it cut off by a vet--I guess his tail got infected after getting sliced in a fight with another cat. We adopted him after he started bullying the other cats in his previous home--male dominance issues.

A Siamese genetic flaw, but, thanks!  I love my boy! :)
I'm also glad to see he's a "normal" Siamese, with a proper cat's face and ears, as the breed was originally. I love cats, but I draw the line at the extreme modern type of Siamese, with huge pointed ears, and a triangular head that makes the poor cat look like an alien.

The same goes for the poor Persians who've been bred to have no muzzle at all. Thank goodness there's a growing backlash against this sort of breeding, which spoils the look of the cat, and causes many physical problems.

I wouldn't call individuals who find pleasure in shooting domestic cats "other Christians".
