    Cats, Cats, Cats

    Cats are like popcorn, you just can't have one. They all have different personalities. I have always had cats they have died of old age and cancer. My favorite one now is Lilly Marlene. She thinks she is a dog. She loves to hit the dogs and she use to chase one. She loves to...

    Tibbles!!!

    Since I was born I had a cat called Furbz who I remember as being old and grumpy, but she probably wasn't always. I nicknamed her Bastet after the Egyptian Cat Goddess because she always seemed to get better no matter what was wrong with her. When I was 17 and she was 22/23 she...

    The Stray That Saved Me

    My dad had just finished mowing the lawn and was outside picking things up when he heard a soft meow. He looked through the trees and finally spotted this really skinny kitten. She was so thin she looked like a ferret with a cat's head. My dad called for me to come and see it...

    I have a cat, her name is Alice. She is solid white except for a speck on the top of her head. She is my baby. I've had her for about half a year now. I named her after Alice, from Alice In Wonderland because she always seems to find some kind of mess to get into. Regardless...

    His Name Is Dexter, After That Fictional Serial Killer

    He is grey and has stripes. Green eyes, like the Dexter on that showtime show. He brings me dead mice, but not before ripping our their organs and the skinning the rodents. He tortures each kill before killing it, like every house cat. I love him.

    Cats Own Us

    Us humans like to think that we own cats; but it is just the opposite. Just ask any of our seven cats. They will tell you that they run the house. We must feed them on time; if we are late, they know, they can tell time and I sometimes wonder if they can understand English...
