Okay, to balance the canine thread, it's time to show us your cats!

Here's my Cedric, with recent MoM visitors from abroad:

with Hans


with my recent mystery guest, who doesn't necessarily need to remain a mystery I just haven't asked yet whether the visit is being revealed or not...

Ingrid, what we usually do here is open an account at www.photobucket.com
It's free, the oly thing you'll suffer is some commercials on your monitor screen.

After having uploaded one or more pictures from yor computer; and that's really easy, you can even just copy into your post. Easy does it.

If you have any difficulty, drop me a Private Message here or send an email and I'll explai at length if you want.

I was hoping there'd be a feline thread! Here are our four:

Missy (the mom cat)


Max (the daddy cat)


Mack (their son)


Madeline (who looks a lot like her mother, Missy!)

Yup. We didn't specifically plan it that way. We got Missy and Max when Fred and Jenn were little with the idea that we'd let them have one litter of kittens so our kids could watch them being born (very educational). Then we'd give away the kittens and keep the mom and dad cats. Before the kittens were born several friends said they'd love a kitten. Afterwards, they all backed out. By that time we'd named the kittens and were not about to put an ad in the paper to give them away, with the potential of someone selling them to be used in some horrible research experiments. So, we kept them. There was a third kitten that Anneli will remember, named Star. Sadly, she died the summer of 09. Her coloring was a fluffy version of Missy. The mom and dad cat are now almost 17 and the "kittens" are about 15.

This is our 'only child' cat, Greebo. Not that it matters much cos he thinks he's a dog anyways! The images are clickable and go to a bigger size. He's (another) dumped on us animal. We gained the dog from Steve's idiot auntie (didn't want her any more cos she was too much trouble, wonderful little dog tho!) and Greebo was bought by Steve's mum even tho her hubby said no and he went ballistic, so he came to us (and good that he did, the cat completes our family!)

This is Janneke, also called Moppie by me. She is currently my only cat, i'm thinking of getting another.
She is now 10 years old.

Thanks Hans

Well, that first photo is very small but on the whole you have passed with flying colours, Ingrid. and "graag gedaan"!

NB:
Als je in je profiel of bij instellingenkijkt of zo dan kun je daar waarschijnlijk aanvinken dat de data of links getoond moeten worden. Als je daarvoor kiest komen er onder elke foto vier vakjes met code. Dat is de code waarover ik sprak in mijn vorige post. Mocht je dan eens een foto willen laten zien i.p.v. een link dan kopieer en plak je simpelweg het stukje tekst/code dat in het vakje BB of IMG code staat. Maar dit is ook goed en je ziet dat Priscilla het precies als jij doet. Complimenten.

This is my Kravitz. He used to belong with my sister, who named him. My sister and my mom both asked me to take him in, since he was not getting along with my sister's and brother-in-law's other cats. Now Kravitz is an only cat, which he loves -seriously, he's so relaxed lately-, and I'm feeling a bit better after my dog Simon's passing.

I’ll start off with the ‘newest’ addition to our cat family, Patches, our resident calico. We took her in when my grandmother passed away and she been with us for over 3yrs now.


Next in line is Whiskers. She was our first cat and has declared herself queen of the house.
She likes to cover her eyes with her paw, especially when she wants to sleep during the day.


Another cute picture of Whiskers!


Finally we come to my baby, Rusty!! I thought it only appropriate to share with you all a picture of him with one of the books by our favorite author.


Lastly this is Rusty at Christmas. He loves the little tree I put up every year in my room and insists on squeezing as much of his body as he can under the tree.
