got my cat from a shelter. went there and he just jumped on my lap so i couldn't leave him behind of course. his name was Balthasar but is called Ben right now. when i first got him i lived with my father. He could go outside and really loved that. When my father got a dog ( teckel) Ben couldn't stand it and walked away..after 5 months i finally got him back via advertisements in the local supermarket..some months later he again ran away..to the same people he was earlier! the woman asked if she could keep him and after many hard nights i figured it would be better to let him..he decided this himself i tought! then after a year i had a dream about him..and that same day i got a phonecall from the new owner of Ben..if i wanted him back because she was moving abroad..and now we both live together..he can't go out anymore because i live in the middle of a town..but he seems to love the balcony at the moment..and he is a old one now..pic will follow later..and sorry for the english prrrr prrr

My cats called Splash, got her and her sister Splish when they were kittens (splish is sadly now dead). We got them because she walked up to us when we walked passed her. She scratched me and my dad first time and apparently bullied all the other cats, people at the place were surprised we got her. She calmed down pretty quickly and is now the complete opposite.

Thought I'd put up a shot of my new cat, Bob:

 

IMG_0306.JPG

 

He's been coming around for awhile and I've fed him, but had been awfully shy about being petted.  But in the past couple of weeks, he's become increasingly affectionate.  He's even passing over food for attention now.  He has a quirky habit of pressing his forehead against my leg and just standing there.  But now that he's always around, I think it's safe to count him with the other two.  He doesn't have a home anywhere else and seems very happy to have a home and some attention.

 

Bob is the new garbage disposal, too.  The other cats are touchy and spoiled, often turning down leftovers.  Not Bob.  Any meat left out for him disappears fast.  It's great, since a lot of trimmings and scraps from meat used to go in the trash, but now I'll spend a few extra minutes pulling everything off the bones for him - almost zero waste.  He gets catfood, too, but prefers leftovers.

 

Seems to have made a huge difference, because Bob's coat turned from dull and mousy to glossy and looking great.  He gets brushed regularly now.  I don't know where he came from, but is fixed and is in good health.  The next door neighbors are vets and they said he's fine.

 

The next step will be an attempt at lapcat conversion.  Bob isn't keen on being picked up or held, but I hope he'll come around.  He'll get his own heated basket when it starts turning cold, too.

My youngest daughter worked at a Cat Rescue.....and brought five of them home!

The smallest cat weighs 6 pounds, full grown.

The biggest cat (Maine Coon), makes the scale groan, at a whopping 23 pounds!!

They ALL turned out to be 100% pure sweethearts.

Even my two Shelties get along with them fine?

The oldest cat, just turned 14, but you'd never know it by the way she runs and jumps!

Yeah, the relatives think me and the Mrs. are CRAZY!

But I'd rather be happy-n'-crazy, than sad-n'-sane.......................................................

@ Uncle Erik That's very nice for you to look after Bob like that 

 

My cat dislikes being picked up/held. She squirms in my arms. All my friends cat's love being held and love all that attention

I've been debating whether or not to post pics of my cat, but I shall hold out no longer! Her name is Missy.

Color's very nearly the same in the pictures, you're not missing out much. She's very small, approximately 5.5 lbs. Was a stray a long time ago, but now is a full time house cat.
