    1. So sad. Black and whites are always beautiful.


    2. Why so young? 🙁 (If it’s a really tragic story, just tell me he went to live on a farm.)


    3. She was hit by a cop car behind our house.. cop didn’t even stop to see what he hit. A neighbor brought her up and she seemed alright. No emergency vets around, closest one is 2 hours away, so we where hoping she would last the night. Died maybe 20 mins after she was brought up, so at least she didn’t suffer. I called the police station with the number of the cop car and they said if the cat didn’t have a collar I would be fined. No action was taken against the cop. Just so you’re not fooled.. she was MEAN.. bit hissed and scratched and I was the only person who could hold her or make her purr, lol. The gray cat a few posts up, Kira, is her only kitten, she got all the sweetness.

      Strange twist of fate… a week after Gizmo died, another neighbor brought us 2 white kittens. There had been a 3rd, black, but he was hit by a car and the woman was going to take them to the pound (Pound out here kills after 2 weeks. MOST of the animals there die. Downfall of living in a small town) but wanted to know if we would take them. If we still had Gizmo there was no way.. But we had room and kept them both.


    4. We got my kitty from the local Humane Society. She was in bad shape, abused and had an infection in her uterus. Her ears were so impacted w/ mites that she’s completely deaf. They were going to put her down and my son was horrified. So we agreed to pay for her vet care and were able to adopt her. I’d say it took me 2 years to get her to bond to me. I let her walk all over me and never pet her past her willingness to put up w/ me. I used food to get her to come to me and then would per her for a short time. I did this over and over. While I would not she is friendly now, she’s definitely mine.


    5. We got Gizzy from a friend who had like 2 litters and 2 preggers momma cats.. they where almost ALL black short hairs and all scared of people.. except Gizzy who walked right up and started chewing on my brothers boot. She was so loving when we got her.. then my father in law started playing really rough with her, sticking his hand in her face and making her mad so she would attack it. Nothing we could do to make him stop, he was always drinking.. Didn’t realize what damage he had done til he moved out and she was always attacking people’s legs and feet and sometimes hands. She loved me… she wouldn’t have her kittens til I came downstairs to sit with her.. waited an hour meowing at my feet trying to make me come downstairs while I was eating dinner. When I realized what was going on and went, she dropped the first one right away. That would be Kira. the 2nd one died a week later. runt. And then we got her fixed… and she got worse, to the point she bit anyone but me that came near her. I miss her a lot but have a feeling I’m the only one.


    6. Cats can be so random. Some love everyone, and some choose only one human to love. My kitty Kia (the grey one in my pictures) has some serious trust issues. I’ve had her since she was 4 mos old and she’s never been abused, but I’m the only one she trusts completely. She runs and hides from everyone else who tries to pet her. My other kitty, Aria, is an attention whore. Especially with men! LOL!


    7. Thats how my twins are turning out! The two white half manx kittens I picked up not long ago are identical twins.. I mean if one of them didn’t have a bent tail (dog attack) you wouldn’t be able to tell them apart.. but the one with the bent tail, Tyr, LOVES attention from anyone and everyone.. hes the kind of kitten that will climb your leg to get on your shoulder, while the other one, Kain, doesn’t like being pet on the shoulders or back and it takes him a few mins to get comfortable in someones arms. Not sure what could have caused it. They’re only 3 months old. Had never been indoors before I got them, and won’t be going outside til they’re at fixed in 3 months.
