why do you love your cat?

How many do you have and why do you love them? I have 3 kittens. I have two 11 month old kittens that are brother and sister. They are hald Siamese and half I don't know (tabby?). The male, Sunny, is orange and white. He is so chubby and a lot bigger than his sister. His eyes are almost the color of his fur, an orangish color. He looks like your typical ole house cat, but is HUGE. His sister, Diamond, is mostly white with some gray. Her eyes are light blue. She looks Siamese like her mother. Her hair is a lot shorter than her brothers and she is much more petite. They do everything together. They eat together, play together and sleep together. When I say play, I mean play. They are both fixed. I don't know what they would do without each other.I also have a 6 week old Persian kitten, Lizzy. We have had her since she was 3 weeks old. She is an off white color with BIG blue eyes. She looks kinda like a Gremlin (remember them?). When we first got her at 3 weeks old, we had to feed her with a bottle this special powdered milk. We had to do that for about 1 week. She could barely even walk straight. She looked like a little deer, she was so wobbly. Her mew was very light. We then started feeding her a special kitty formulation (kitten food from a can mixed with the powder stuff and water). It had to be really watery, because she only knew how to suck. We then tried regular kitten food from a can. 2 days ago, we started giving her regular cat food. Man.....it gave her such bad diarrhea. I guess it was too rich for her. IDK. So we had to go back to the can stuff. She never leaves my room, because Sunny and Diamond don't like her. She even sleeps with me and my husband. She likes to sleep in my armpit. She is just now hopping and can jump on low surfaces. I love my babies!

oh those little babies are so cute, and siblings are so wonderful together! We have a pair of brothers, Ping and Pong, and when they were young, they were inseparable. now at 5 they do fine on their own, but you can see that if one is gone for a while the other starts looking for him - Ping looks for Pong more than the other way around. When we got Booboo, we also got his sister, and while they obviously loved each other it wasn't the dependent kind of affection we saw between Ping and Pong. He never even missed her when she was adopted.

I love all 4 of my cats. Josie, a calico, is my purr companion. Whenever there is a lap for her, she will use it. She snores when she sleeps, and if I haave to get up and forget to set my alarm, she wakes me. Peaches was abandoned in a vet's office and was in a cage for 7 months. When she came here, she wouldn't let anyone pet her, look at her or talk to her. She has come a long way. Paisley was tossed by some unmentionable excuse for a human into a dumpster. She came her via several nice people and she is simply adorable, a very opinionated calico who has something to say about everything. Arthur is a white Turkish Angora who lived with too many cats who didn't let him eat. He is a big woos, but ver lovable. He mutters under his breath all the time.

I adore out cat Max not only because she is cute but because she is a little survivor after being abandoned by her previous owner. We just got her from the shelter six months ago but I cannot imagine life without her now.

I have 3 cats and 1 kitten in our house, all the 3 of them are now pregnant. After they will all deliver our house will be full, and I am planning to give some kittens to my neighbors if they want it. My favorite among my cat's was Sabina, she was a Siamese cat, she once saved our lives from a vicious snake which was on our bed while we are in a deep sleep.

my baby papaaaaaaaaaaa prrrrrrrince - my black cat
Hello! I have a few cats... Actually more than a few LOL. My fav tho is my black cat Princeton with big beautiful green eyes . He is from a litter of kittens I raised and he was just always the baby and my Prince . I remember when he was a couple of weeks he climbed the blanket all the way to the bed when I was getting ready and just curled up in my lap He always gets super happy and rubs his head all over me and does like this bull jump lol it is really cute . He always has a thing with blush sticks and eating peoples hair LOL. He just is different and he sings too . All his meows and all sound like he is singing and it reminded me of Prince the singer as well . He just always remembers me to if that makes sense . When he was a kitty i went on a trip and i was scared he would forget and he didnt. For a cat he is pretty peaceful as well .

We have 3 cats, 1 male and 2 female, I love our cats because they are just adorable. Whenever we watching tv they always sit beside us they probably like the shows we watch too.MC is our male cat and he's really quite he sleeps at hidden places around the the house like at the top of the refrigirator or inside my dresser and he never complains whenever I hug him tight. Tin, one of female cats is really cute her color is white with orange patches and here eyes it think is bigger than most cats and that's what makes her cute especially at night when her iris is bigger, Tin is a bit louder than MC and she always makes a noise when she's hungry or when she sees us eating asking for food but that's ok Tin is also our alarm clock because she wakes us up during mornings going inside our rooms and hops at the bed to wake us up. Charlie is our newest cat and she is so sweet and mostly quite too but unlike Tin and MC who only comes to us when hungry or watching tv, Charlie always follows me whenever she sees me and she always want me to stroke her head or throat. We always enjoy watching them play with each other or with balls and yarns it always takes our stress away.

I had one cat, but he is no longer with us. He was very old and had kidney disease. He was a very sweet cat though. The kind of cat that would crawl on to your lap and just cuddle with you. He was also very demanding though. If I was on the computer and he wanted attention he would walk all over my key board and try to pull my hands up with his head to pet him. I loved him because he was so sweet and lovable.

There are lots of reasons for me to love my cat. I value the time the cat spends with me playing and the happiness I get by playing with it. I love cats. I don't have a cat at my house presntly because I am not supposed to keep a cat according to the rules and policies of my apartment. I am sad about that. My parents have a cat. Once in a while I go home and play with that cat.

I had one cat for 5 years. He was all black with a little bit of white fur on his belly. He was like a dog and so cute. If he wanted something all I had to say was "show me" and he would she me what he wanted, most of the time he wanted a treat..:) He also knew the commands "sit" "stay" and "in your bed".

When transitioning a cat from one food to another its best to go slowly... mix in 25% dry food into 75% wet food.... then after 4-5 days... make it 50% dry, 50% wet... and so on and so forth... this helped us when we changed our cats diet and works on dogs too. And I have one cat at the moment. Although two cats in the house, but I live with my brother and grandfather and Ruthie is my brothers cat... although she loves Grandpa most. Tosca is my lovely... her mother whom didn't have an owner but gave birth in someone elses shed was ran over by a car... she had a sister and two brothers. Her sister Sassy and one of her brothers remain at the house of the person who found them in her shed. Tosca's other brother is down the street with a friend of the families. Tosca does not like to be held, but she loves belly rubs (especially since getting spayed) and getting attention as long as she isn't picked up.

First off, i have got to say, the armpit thing is ADORABLE!! =] I have one cat. His name is Ozzy and he is a tabby. He is beautiful. I actually got him off the street when he was a little kitten. Maybe a month old. Soo cute. He has a little mole on the tip of his nose and beautiful green eyes (im a sucker for green eyes). He's SO active and playful. I've had him for a few months.. he's gotten pretty big in that time. I give him only Wellness can & hard food (to balance his diet) and he's just.. one the best cat's i have ever owned- other than that he bites me a lot when we are playing.. but i love him anyways. He's like my little sharp-toothed son =]
