I always wanted a ginger and cream tabby and to call him or her Peaches! My current calico however does not play well with other cats.

7 must be a handful - especially in the winter. My 2 are driving me nuts ! They need a barn to play in.

Has a tendency to get tegus some times but they are a blast to have around until you try to carry the groceries to the car and they all want attention. But they all are loving friendly lil buggers. Going to the vet next week to make sure these are the last kittens. Hate doing it but best all the way around.

I love cats! We've got three. I don't think I could live in a house without at least one or two.

The only one of our's who's made it to FAA so far is Mr. Muffins. His former owner had to move cross country and couldn't take him. We heard he needed a new home and took him in about a year ago. He's one of the nicest cats I've ever met.

Andrew, me neither. They fascinate me. And yeah Buster could teach a lazy hound dog about relaxing.

I was nicely surprised that this stray cat stayed still long enough to create some photo captures. Normally she will run off if it sees anyone.

I am the unwilling caretaker for my daughter's two critters (she's away at school). It's not that I don't like them; it's just that I've reached an age where the only living creature I want to be responsible for is me. Nonetheless, they have proved useful. I've sold quite a few copies of the two full-face images below at art shows, both of which were simply shots I took when I acquired new cameras and wanted something to practice on. The third shot is one I took more as a joke than anything else (and was the very first thing I sold on FAA). The two cats hate each other, rarely staying in the same room at the same time. Imagine my surprise when I found them curled up together one day and happened to have my camera handy ...

Big trouble with pets, cats more so I believe is you want to keep on taking photos. They are all the time into something.

Love this! I am a big animal lover, and all my life have been owned by many cats. Always in multiples, and always they seem to find me. I guess they know a soft touch when they see one. :)

This is Casey, gone now, but she was a big part of my life. She was a tiny feral kitten when I first spotted her in the woods, along with her colony of 4 other kittens and 3 adults (the kittens found homes, the adults were neutered/spayed and lived in the colony for the rest of their days, fed daily. Casey joined my group of indoor cats and lived for 15 more years, until she had a stroke, and passed in my arms at the vet's office.

Love the cat pictures!
Tony I had my current female kitty fixed not too long after I got her (at 4 months old). I sure love to have kittens around they are all entertaining....but, I need to cut down on my animal population, now. (Retirement age is creeping up on me and I will face a fixed income in the next few years).
I will always try to keep at least one kitty around, if I can.
Count me among the "cat persons."

I guess we have spent over a thousand dollars in the past two years having our cats fixed. Problem is, we have a female that has been here for about 5 years and haven't been able to even pet her mush less get her fixed. I have set have a heart traps and still can't get her.

We were taking the kittens to the Dodge county animal control for a while and then found out as soon as we left they gassed them. I do believe this spring I will be able to get her. She is staying a little closer now. Love the kittens but it is definately straining our budget trying to take care of all them.

I sure appreciate all the beautiful cat photos on here. I can see youall seem to think as much of your furry children as we do.

This little guy named Tiger Woods, was found at my friend's house, well, in the woods, meowing when he was smaller. They took him in and said "he's a tiger that we found in the woods", lol. Now, he is a huge cat...this was taken when a couple of years ago.

One thing for sure - - cats fascinate us, try our patients sometimes, and seem to always love us right back. They seem eager to prove themselves smarter than us and charm us all the while.

Youall dun good !!

This is Cotton, one of my fosters. I worked closely with a local animal shelter for six years, taking photos for the website. It made me feel great when one of my photos helped a cat or dog find a good home. This little guy was an absolute sweetheart and I hated to let him go, but there were always so many more who needed a place until adoption.

Thank you all for your participation in this thread and keep them coming.
I want to address some of the facts about our lil furry kids.

1. Cats will kill birds. They are born hunters and do it well.

2. Cats also kill snakes, mice, moles, and rats. They do a lot more good than harm. For every bird they kill they will kill twice to three times more vermin than birds. When we moved in to the house we are in now, the place was overrun with garter snakes. Now we seldom see one at all and the cats have killed the most of them off. I see a lot more dead mice and snakes than birds and bet the few they do kill are probably sick or hurt in some way or the cats wouldn't be able to get them. So the good they do verses the harm is strongly weighted in their favor.
