Cats Cats Cats

Updated on March 5, 2013

Our Cats Have Trained Us Well!

My cats run the house. Really they are the bosses. They have us very well trained. We have learned to pet on demand, feed and give them plenty of water in the particular bowls that they love. We change their litter daily so as not to offend them.

They let us love them and nurture them. When they decide! They also let us hang out with them on the couch while we watch TV and most nights they will even share the blankets and pillows on our bed with us.

Come on in and meet my family cat crew. Introducing (from left to right) Mimi, Charli and Sammy. Our three babies.

Three cats. Twelve different personalities depending on the kitty and time of day! They definitely run the household and we are so lucky they all adopted us.

Sammy is our oldest cat. Our family has always had dogs and cats and just before Sammy came along unfortunately we had after 17 years of love just lost our dog Lucky who we loved so much and a year before our cat Cappy who we for almost 20 years. We weren't really planning on adding to our family but....

A friend of mine had a visiting cat who delivered a beautiful litter of kittens in his backyard. My daughter adopted a beautiful little gray and white kitten from the litter who's name is Smokey. What a sweetie. He had gotten all the kittens adopted except one. And kept calling me to let me know about the one little kitten who no one adopted..... Since all the other kittens were gray or tabby colored I jokingly said OK if it's a black and white kitten I will take him. Guess what, the next day Sammy was delivered to my doorstep.

He took one look at us and adopted us on the spot!

Mimi Cat

Sweet Mimi was only 8 weeks old when she adopted us. My youngest daughter and I just happened to stop into a PetSmart to get some cat toys for Sammy when they were hosting a rescue shelter for cats. Adorable sweet little kittens everywhere! Well of course we had to stop and look!

And there was Mimi. She looked into my eyes so little and so wise. Then I asked the nice Rescue lady the fateful question. You know the one. Can I hold her for just a minute? She almost leaped into my arms and cuddled against my neck and said, I'm telling you I heard her say, Hi Mommy I Love You. Then my daughter who by the way was in her 20's reverted into the adorable kitty loving child of her self and said, ooooh meee can I hold her too? Mimi happily went into my daughters arms, snuggled in, looked deep in her eyes then reached up and with her tiny little kitty paws and played with my daughters little hair curls.

It was love at first sight for all of us!! Hello Mimi, thank you for adopting us too!

Charli My Brave Little Kitty

Charli is our baby cat. She is so brave and so loving and rounds our family out just perfectly. Charli adopted us under the bravest of circumstances. Our town had been going through a heat wave. A terrible heat wave of over 100 degrees every day. No break night or day with temperatures still in the 90's at night. No rain. No cool winds. Harsh, rough heat.

My husband is the Fire Chief at our fire station and one of these terribly hot days he called me outside the firehouse and said come here, you have to see this. There under the loading dock of a local business next door to our fire house was a tiny, dirty little cat who would come out when she saw us and yell "MEOW!!". We went over there and she would shyly scoot just beyond our reach. We brought here some water and came back later on to give her some more. That night when she saw us she came out again and yelled "MEOW" in her tiny tiny little kitten voice. Again she scooted just beyond our reach when I went over. But I stayed and talked to her and watched her drink some water. Of course I thought about her all night.

The next day as soon as I got to the back of the fire house little Charli popped out and said "MEOW!" I thought to myself if she comes out again I really have to pick her up and rescue her poor little thing. Sure enough as soon as I went over and started talking to her she came out, wrapped herself up on my sneaker, looked up and said "MEOW!!" She let me pick her up. I called my oldest daughter and said come on down to the fire station, bring some kitty wash and a towel, it's cat adventure time! Of course the idea was to bring her to the Vet on Monday and then they could find a great home for her since I already had two cats. Yeah, right!

We brought the teeny tiny dirty filthy little kitten into the station and gave her a bath in the sink, oh so cute! She let us and seemed to love every minute of it. By the time we wrapped her up in the towel she wasn't saying MEOW anymore she was purring and cuddling and couldn't wait to come home to her new family. Thank you Charli for adopting us!!

My cats not only love hanging out together but they are even loving enough to be friends with my daughter's long hair chihuahua Bella when she comes over to visit. Here they all are at my back door keeping an eye on the squirrels and chipmunks that love to visit. Sometimes the squirrels come right up on the back porch and talk to my cats through the screen door!

Not only do I love my cats but I love buying gifts for them too. My cats wanted to recommend some of their favorite gifts for you in case you wanted a feline opinion before you go out shopping.

Fun gifts are cozy cat beds, food and water bowls, toys, toys and toys because cats are very adventurous and so very curious. The love a great game of feather tickling and mouse hunting in between naps, grooming and eating!

Below are their very favorite presents and they even took the time to demonstrate for you.

No matter how many beds or blankets I can't resist buying because they are so cute and cuddly, Sammy cat just loves sleeping in a box. Big boxes, little boxes, gift boxes or snack boxes. He just can't resistant curling up or stretching out so his paws are outside the box and snore away happily snoozing and dreaming cat dreams.

Snack Box Naps

Snack boxes make for great naps for adorable kitties who love to enjoy the sun and eachother's company. All three of my cats love the snack boxes so much we can't seem to make ourselves ever throw them away.

So go ahead, buy a fun variety snack box of goodies for the family with the added bonus of kitty nap treats that come along with them.

I Love You My Cats

I guess you could tell I really love all of my cats. I feel like this is a cool brag book online to show off how terrific they are. How cute as kittens and loving they are today.

No matter what mood I am in, how busy I am or how crazy my day gets, my cats are always there to purr their love. Jump in my lap. Hang out with me while I am working or cooking. They just always know the right way to say I Love You.

      O, how precious. The photos are great. I do think kitties like to pose...mine do for sure.

      This is the third article on kitties I have read this morning...I am beginning to think it is kitties on parade day or something.

      I have written about one of my kitties in detail. Perhaps I should add a new one about all of the outside kitties.

      Thanks for sharing your precious kitties with us.

      Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

      You kitties are so precious. The box beds are so funny, and I can relate to it. We have so many real beds for our pets, but they all like the boxes the most. Thank you for adopting.

      Thanks for introducing us to your cat and Chihuahua family. I just fell in love with them all. The kitten pictures are adorable and made my heart skip a few beats! I can't imagine what life would be like without my sweet kitties, Choo Choo, Squeaky and Casper!!! I hug all three of my cats every night and tell them I love them before going to bed, and I do the same every morning when I get up....is this normal??? ;-)

      Cats always own their owners! I had two adorable monstrous kitties (one 5kg, one 8kg, and neither overweight), when I lived in Australia. The larger one loved boxes, and both loved their blanket covered beanbags.
