FUN MONDAY - Our furbabies
Sayre wants to see our furbabies. Or scalebabies. Or finbabies. Whatever form our pet takes, she wants to see a picture of it/them and hear the story of how it/they came to be a part of our family.
Most of you know that I have 5 cats and am a so said Cat Lady ! I also have a cat collection of more than 450 cats in all sizes and materials.
My oldest cat is Lisa, she is now 18 years old. Mr. Gattino brought her home in a carton when she was 6 weeks old. She came from a friend and should "replace" Mitzi who had died the same day. This was quite terrible for me because it was too quick. I was very angry with Mr. G he wanted to help me over my grief, but it hadn't been the right way !
Lisa moved in, became a very stubborn cat and rules the house ! Meanwhile she is deaf and meauws or rather crows the whole morning, God only knows why ! The rest of the day she is quiet and sleeps.
Arthur is 7 years old, we picked him up in an animal shelter when he just arrived in a carton ! Mr. G's childhood dream was to own a white cat ! Arthur is without knowing it, a very amusing and social cat ! All our neighbors know him very well and he knows very well their beds. He hides sometimes in wardrobes and causes heart attacks when you open the door and he happily jumps out.
Rosie is my first "Internet cat" ! She is 2 years old. I wanted to have a "Tuxi" cat and found one thanks to Internet. She is a little housewife everything must be need and tidy so she tidies up her toy mice around the food bowls during the night, one in the water bowl and one in the dry food. The others in a circle around. She owns 6 !
Pookie is now 9 and belonged to our son. She is an English cat and was born in London where he lived at that time. When he had to move to Amsterdam he asked me to keep his two cats for 3 months because he was living in a flat. 5 years later Pookie is still with us and forever.
Kim also belonged to our son and is 8, she couldn't stand the life in a flat at all and didn't eat anymore. Kim is mostly outside and although she has a lot of beds to nap at her disposal, she prefers to sleep outside in her tent.
