Yes luco, cats are really cute

 

Holes in your 3-piece suite? You're lucky. I have more perforations in me than a Tetley tea bag! He uses me as his backup scratching post 

 

 

 

Here he is doing the splits and giving his bum a good summer airing.

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 



my oldest cat is the same. She has to decide where she will be and looks for a way down.

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.


Wow, Bob looks just like this cat our family had a few years ago. And funnily enough they got him in much the same way when he started coming around the house as a stray, begging for food. Except he was a tiny guy then, well under a year. So we named him 'Little Guy', and as irony would have it he grew into a hulking, muscled, tom. He was the terror of the neighborhood. But indoors he was a total affection magnet. His markings were so similar to your Bob that it's uncanny. He just looks a little thinner than Little Guy was!

Yeah, he's a poser! Totally spoiled rotten. Today I woke up with him swatting my face. Luckily, his claws were retracted

Well, we have somehow accumulated 7 cats, with another on the way, just waiting to reach coming home size.  3 rescue cats, 1 Cornish Rex, and 2 Sphynx, with another coming.   Like they say, what's one more????

 

In addition to the cats, we have 2 umbrella cockatoos, and 2 sugar gliders.   It is somewhat like living in a zoo!

Those were/are angora cats but Ron used them to test his TopKits and the poor animals were so shocked by the experiments they lost their coats.

They are Sphynx cats.  The lack of fur is due to a genetic mutation which was first observed in Canada in the mid-seventies.  They feel like suede.  They also have a body temperature several degrees above that of regular cats and feel like a suede hotwater bottle when holding them.   Due to their high metabolism rate, they eat much more than other cats while still remaining lithe and muscular.   They are very hardy cats with a great personalities.  Needless to say, it only takes a few minutes to bathe and dry them.   They quickly get used to being bathed and seem to like it.  Unlike other cats, they perspire, hence the need for baths.

This is the cutest cat you have ever seen, don't even deny it.
