my cat Perry god rest his soul was a cat who hated the indoors he originally was to be my daughters house cat but he started losing weight and his hair was falling out we took him to the vet and had him checked and spayed he stayed with me and my husband for a few weeks and he would go out to play and he loved it he started to gain weight and got his fur back and would climb to the top of the house and survey his kingdom soon we started to noticed that a few of our female cats were getting in heat we thought a cat from down the road was doing it untill they had kittens then we knew Perry our adorable now a barn cat was also a polydactlyal cat meaning he had several extra toes. he had 6 on each of the front feet and 8 on one of the back and 7 on the other foot so did the new kittens we started getting so we soon figured out that Perry was a original 3 balled tom cat we had always heard about but never seen so my daughters ( well mine he wouldn't leave when he was supposed too ) was the most original and special cat in more than just one way and we loved him we still have one of his daughters left but no more kitties from the wild bunch one Perry was enough
A neighbouring cat who drops by on her daily rounds of visits. Really special cat who knows when I'm busy or when I've got a moment so it places itself neatly on the door mat for a good 'scratch' and rest: Simply a wonderful, clever and considerate cat!
We have 3 cats; but one is pretty extraordinary. This particular cat, who is 2 going on 3, has learned over the years how to open door knobs (actual knobs), unlock doors, turn lights on and off, among other things. He's quite smart.
He's gone now, but my "Trouble" trained himself to use the toilet instead of the sandbox. At least until the day he fell in!
A huge completely black cat, he would climb up on a small shed and wait for dogs to walk by, whereupon he would jump them and chase them off. Ride them to the edge of our yard before jumping off. Most dogs quickly learned to stay out of our yard!
Oh boy; Thats a bad message to put out should children or teens read this message.Animals cannot breath as well as humans do,for that matter it's totally impossible to survive in a refrig.for any amount of time,there is absolutely no oxygen in there.Be careful what you do please.be good to your little pets,they need us humans,they are not put here to amuse us in that manner.Thanks.....god bless
Ha wilderness -- Trouble sounds like a real troublemaker (if you're a dog, anyway). spookyfox -- I've never tried that, only had to pull mine out of the dryer a couple of times
I vote for my cat Jimmy. Jimmy was rescued from a grass fire as a teeny kitten. He was brought in to the emergency vet by firemen -- his ears burned, the pads of his paws burned, his whiskers singed off, needing pain meds, oxygen, and TLC. My hubby and I were desperately trying to hold onto our 18-year-old angel kitty Penny. She was in renal failure and we spent a LOT OF TIME (like daily)at the emergency vet. One weekend we had to go away and left Penny in the care of the vet. They put her in the same cage as little Jimmy. I swear that she taught him all her best Penny pleasing tricks. It's like part of her soul got transferred to him during that brief meeting. He does things that our other cats (including Penny's sister Patty) never do -- but Penny used to. It's eerie, but in a good way.
How cool is that story?! I had a cat in renal failure for years, so I feel your pain. R.I.P. Pandora and Penny.
All three of my cats are the best, for so many reasons. Our cat Luna is totally like a dog, though. Plays with the dog, washes the dog, comes when she's called, drinks out of the dog bowl only, etc... My husband, who much prefers dogs, can't get enough of this kitty!
Pixie (one of our first ever 2 cats, now deceased). Escaped from our local vets out of a cardboard box when two dogs in a car barked. Missing for about 4 days, (vets a good 5 miles from where we lived at the time). Turned up at home, not at all hungry and completely unphased by the experience.
Ronnie (one of our current cats), so sweet, he climbs up on to my chest and washes my face, arms etc. Very doting and capable of sorting any dog out that barks at him, (totally holds his ground). A big cat, (over 6 kgs), all muscle but a gentle giant for sure.
Reggie (another one of our current cats), quickly worked out to 'knock/scratch' on our glass front door to be let in, and to rattle my door keys on the inside lock to be let out. If in the bedroom he knocks items off the dressing table until you get up and feed him or let him out.
Squish (our third current cat), Guards me from the Husband like mad. If he gets into bed when she is by me, she immediately sticks her bum in his face, starts sucking on the duvet that is covering me, (kneading it frantically with her claws), and generally makes it very clear he is NOT welcome. Hard to have a conversation with the Hubby, as when we are lying down she makes sure all each of us can see is her bum, me from the front, Hubby from the 'pencil sharpener' end!!
Here's Jimmy with his banged up nose and tattered ears and singed whiskers. He looks like he just went 10 rounds in a boxing ring. That's why I named him Jimmy (like Jimmy Cagney). He's with Snoopy, btw.

My little Ronnie had attitude even as a kitten, and he still takes no nonsense from any dog to this day, (I might add the gentle dog in the picture was far more scared of Ronnie as a kitten than he was of her).
My two cats are cool because they're spooky. This is Midnight and Shadow (original names, huh?) on the day we adopted them. They were living in a barn and living off of leftover table scraps. They were sick with chest congestion and runny eyes, but now they're healthy and happy kitties.
Can't believe I was missing all of this good show in tell! Really enjoyed seeing all your pictures, and reading all about your cats! For some reason, I just got an e-mail today that you all...were talking about cats:). Love your pictures of your feline friends! Keep them coming:)
These beautiful kittys are Little One and Pinky. Pinky was a rescue kitten with inoperable liver shunts. He had far too many and my Veterinarian said it would be impossible to perform surgery. While he was with us for 8 very good months, my Little One took care of him and mothered him as if her own. Little One is also a rescue who was dieing in the summer heat in California. I found her and took her to our Veterinarian. It took 8 weeks to save her and now, 10 years later, she still is living very very well and healthy. She is one of many many rescued kitties who have love and security in my SE Kansas home.
I don't know about coolest cat, mine thinks she's a dog. She was wild until well after she was weaned and was caught in a trash can. She tamed easily but her brother who was caught at the same time never did. He was pure black, and ran in front of a car.
She rides on my lap in a wheel chair when she's not busy with her 3 week old babies. It took every thing in our power to keep her inside to have them. She still has a problem with little children and the pet dog who thinks shes a cat.
When she wants in or out of the house she scratches on the door frame if the door is closed. If its open and I am going the same way she is she will ride on my lap. If the children are around she runs and hides inside or out as fast as her little legs will carry her.
She is the only one of the litter she was born to with Siamese markings, all but one of her babies carry her markings. The other is pure white. There are still two who are waiting for a new home.
The big joke around here is that she is my girlfriend. She will come to me before she goes to anyone else. When she needs care I am always the one to hold her, she will stay calm for me where with others she constantly tries to escape.
My kids have the coolest cat, Tokey. I asked them how Tokey got his name, and my daughter said from smoking. I asked what she meant as I had no idea what she meant. She said "Mom, these days we don't say "You wanna smoke?" anymore. We say "You want a toke?" oh...
Here's Tokey "I'm ready for my close up, Mr. Deville."
My cat Dennis is really cool. He had to go to the vet's today, where a needle was inserted into his side to draw urine, and he didn't even make a sound. He had a saucer of cream when he was home for being so brave.
For some time now, I've noticed that he drinks a lot more water than I'm used to seeing him drink, and sometimes he'll just lay around in front of his dish, only to drink more water before he either camps out again or...
