That's a real cat? Okay, maybe...

post #137 of 596
And yet another cat. I recently moved to Arizona and was about to visit the shelter to pick up a new one. The other cats stayed with family in California - the kids are very attached to them and we didn't want to yank them out of familiar surroundings. I will see them every month or so and the cats are just fine.

Anyway, I was going to find one at the shelter, but noticed a few ferals in the alley out back. I went out to see if they were friendly, but all hung back three or four feet. Except for one little calico kitten, who came out from under a car, looked me in the eye, then walked without hesitation into my hand. She started purring and let me pick her up after just a minute. So I took her inside and held her for a couple of hours.

I'd say she is about two to three months old. Scrawny, a little pathetic and I think she's missing the tip of her tail. I've been giving her all the food she wants for the past ten days. She's put on at least a pound and doesn't look skeletal any longer. Her coat is improving, but will probably take a couple more weeks to turn glossy.

She has already set herself up as a housecat. I get yowled at for food in the morning and evening, she picked a favorite chair, stalks me around the house, and stands over the keyboard when getting "insufficient" attention. Good kitty, though. Pretty mellow for a kitten and it seems like she'll turn into a lap cat. Which is exactly what I was looking for.

No pics yet, I'm still on mobile out here and don't know how to post pics from the phone. But the kitty is mostly orange and black, with a white chest, paws and part of her belly. Big orange eyes and white whiskers. Very cute and I'll put up pics next weekend.

If you're talking about my cat, yes it most definitely is real.

We had two cats, Abby and Mandy. Both awesome kitties. Both adopted. Unfortunately, Mandy passed Nov. 1st of last year. Strangely enough Abby has completely come out of her shell. That has been very cool to see! Love cats. We would like to get a dog at some point.

Have two cats, they are good buddy.


It's probably not a good idea to really let them drink, but this looks funny

Alright, I finally knocked off a few cat photos with the iPhone.  Not the best quality, but I want to show off my kitty:






The second shot is how she tells me that she wants a belly rub.  Belly rubs are very popular.


What a great cat.  I can't believe someone dumped her in the alley.

What you describe exactly fits the description of a British Shorthair then.

Russian blues always have emerald-green eyes, you can see mine here in post#99

Fun how they love to play between the sheets!
