Hi, my name is Pam but I think my neighbors are starting to refer to me as "that crazy cat lady down the street". So be it, if the shoe fits. The strays all see to find me and I love each and every one. We is some of the current brood: Babycakes who is almost 18 years, adopted when she was about 2 weeks old (at least part Maine Coon), TW who is a 1 year old tiger the insiders and Vince who is 11, Mama wtih 2 babies right now (either making a trip to the vet or to a farm), Tinkerbell 3 years tortishell and her brother George who is supposed to live next door but they aren't taking care of him and Clarence who is half blind and missing some teeth. She showed up one day and is the ugliest cat I have ever seen but a heart of gold. She will be with us as long as she wants. They all have a "condo" to sleep in for the winter completely insulated with a windowed front room and a small barn next door that they share with the neighbors kitties. What a happy bunch we are. They keep me sane on most days.
Hi I am Jan. I live in rural southern Oregon. On our property are foxes, deer,wild ducks, wild geese, skunks (unfortunately), a million birds and fish. Oh and lots of frogs. My family has 7 cats. All rescued at some point. We have three in the main house and 4 in the out-building apartment. My ex husband lives in the apartment and house. He has my two original cats, Creamer and Sugar. Brothers who are Maine Coons. Creamer is long-hair with a face that looks like he ate cream an is yellow and white. Sugar is loosely stripped and is the color of light and dark brown sugar. My husband befriended a California Spangle that was pregnant. She was adopted out but we still have 2 of her off springs. Grimm (short for Grimmalkin) Is a sleek black panther. Mystique is a gray striped cat much as his mother. In the house we have two brothers who are Russian Red and Persian mixed. Sandy is a light tan and white short-hair. Dommie is the same with more white and longer hair. Then there is Harley (short for Harlequin). She was also adopted by my ex. I told him she was wild and he should leave her outside. He turned her into a house person. She is American Bobtail with the most interesting markings of all colors. She has a straight line demarcation across her face that is one pattern and colors on one side and a different pattern and colors on the other. I hope to get pictures of all the cats on my sparks pages soon. So come say Hi and see.

Hi - I'm new to this team - I have 3 cats and my daughter has 1 - and they are all girls - so we are an all female household! Have a great day and good luck on your journey! our cats also sleep on us - they are inside at night - but free to wander out during the day. Tabbitha is a frerra tab/Torty, her sister Pickles is a white and black British shorthaired & they are 10 years aold. Muffin is a Torty and has her sisiter Tinto who is a wonderfully marked Tabby! They are 3 and all are rescued!
We have a semi-siamese who comes to get warm during the winter months as her owners leave her out all day regarless of the weather - I think this is wrong - but you can't say anything!

Welcome to the team! I have four cats and one I'm babysitting. All are indoor cats. Tom and Jerri are brother and sister and are Tabby color. Jerri has a calico face. Spaz is a Tabby with white boots and white chest. Squeakers is a Grey Striped who out weighs all the rest of the cats. I've tried putting her on a diet and everyone else lost weight but her. She gained weight. The one I'm babysitting is Whisper who is a long hair black cat. I have a stray outside that I take care of and she is a grey. I swear she knows my van when I come home because she is waiting for me when I pull in the drive. I then feed her for the night. When I come home from work, the cats come and greet me. At night they sleep on me. I never know how many cats I'll have on me when I wake up. I just love my cats.

to our team! I have had many cats(all rescued cats), but currently I have a brother and sister who came from a famous no-kill county shelter that started with a "million-dollar cat!" Her owner left her with a million dollars and stipulated that she be cared for the rest of her life in a wonderful shelter along with other cats who if not adopted out, could live there until they died a natural death. They have since added a wing for dogs, too. But the majority of space is for kittens and cats! My two cats - Prince, who is gray and white, short haired, and named because he walks and acts like he is of regal heritage! and Purrfect, who guess what? purrs all the time! is grey and white long haired, are both affectionate and like to tease their brother the dog, a chocolate lab named Duncan. Of course, Duncan, teases them back and they romp all around the house. Recently, however, Duncan had surgery for cancer, so they have been quieter, until a few days ago when Duncan felt like romping again, so they have been back to normal! The cats are inside cats except for Prince who is an escape artist, who likes to dash out the front door and hide on the front porch and wait for us to find him and scold him! They both have chips in them in case they should run away. They refuse to keep collars on them! Those break away collars are impossible to keep on my cats! LOL
My cats love to nap between our feet in the evening while we watch TV, use the computer, or while I crochet when we have the feet up from our chairs. They actually put their paws around our legs and put their heads on one leg! They love to give "kitty kisses!" and follow me around from room to room during the day when they are awake or to sleep near me. We are mutually in love with each other!
I can do ALL things through Christ whom strengthens me.
I'm new to this team, although I have aspired to be a crazy cat lady when I grow up, I can't seem to get the crazy part accomplished. I have 3 kitties. Remington is gray and my adult son says that if Remington were a human, he would be wearing a helmet all the time. Not the brightest bulb in the box, afraid of everything, but very sweet, stays indoors where it's safe. Zoey is as smart as a whip, white with gray splotches, lives both in and out and hangs on my hubby's every word, every movement. They are totally in love. Then there's Gracie, an outdoor only cat, petite, great hunter, playful and energetic. Loves to stalk her humans and surprise them. She is up for best actress award for "Hunger Games" this year but maintains that sleek form the other two envy. Tell me about your brood.
