That photo of him/her under the couch is PRICELESS!!! I was always a dog person myself until Tom came into my life and snookered me into these two ferrals. They are an absolute hoot. If I couldn't have a dog, you can be SURE I'd have a cat! They're incorrigible!!

@ Spud -- I had a parakeet named Dickey -- same coloring. Chattery little thing, he was.

These photos are soooo cute. What a great thread, BDBoop!! (Is that Betty, BTW?)

Nope, Bobbi. Middle initial D. I've used a Boop avatar or sig ever since I landed on the net about a decade ago. :)

Awww!! I'm jealous. How old are they?

Belle & Orli used to roughhouse a lot. Orli is a sheltie mix. One time Belle was running off some energy, and she ran right into Orli, knocked her ass-over-teakettle. We just sort of heard this "oof" sound, like the wind got knocked out of her. She got right back up and into the game. :)

Max is two and a half and Rory around 6, we aren't sure.

This is my cat, Sam. I adopted him about 5 years ago, from a home that abused him. It's truly amazing how sweet and trusting he is despite his terrible past. I just took him to the vets this week for his annual shots, and cannot get over how brave and calm he was... he even tried to cuddle with the vet. He also has a lot of human friends in the hood, and makes it a point to get off his lazy duff to greet any of them who walk by the house. He is such a character.



I love this pic. He's dozing soundly even whie being watched :):


I also take care of 2 very petite female feral cats in my area, Sweet Pea and her mom, Delilah. They trust me enough now to let me pet and handle them, but are still somewhat skittish at times. If I can successfully get them inside a pet carrier, I will be taking them both into the Humane Society this summer so they can get their shots and spayed. My city has a good program for ferals, but they will still be in my care.

Here's Delilah, who is very aptly named. I've seen her gently rub herself against Sweet Pea one second, then take a nasty swat the other. She is boss, though she fully takes a back seat to Sam, who is twice her size.




Here's Sweet Pea, a very gentle and playful girl:

Oh, Sam has exquisite markings! Especially those on his face. Good luck getting the girls in, I hope it's soon. :) Bless you for what you're doing.

I freakin love cats. They are little people in a way. But one must have the mentality for a cat. They are just not dogs where they always want attention. They chill out and rest up. When they want to be social they will let YOU know. They are loving and my little buddies just make me.... relaxed. I feel like they look at me sometimes and just say 'calm down man'. I NEVER thought I would be a cat guy.

Dogs look up to you and cats look down on you.
