Most of these cats are rescued ferals from the groups living in my yard or the neighborhood block. Some live with us inside - the elderly ones who need more attention and medication. The rest have their own house with a screen porch for warm weather (we cover it with plastic in cold seasons) and a nice snuggly indoor area for winter.There are 19 of us cats so scroll down to make sure you meet them all. We have black cats, black tortoiseshell, gray tabbies, brown tabbies, tuxedo blue, and all white cats! Some are more tame than others but they all have a safe forever home with us.
Sweetpea here today. Mom has been reading this fun book at night to us before she goes to sleep. It is written by two screen and TV writers Mike Bender and Doug Chernack. They have previously written the well known Awkward Family Photos book and have a website by the same name.
We laughed at the silly pictures of people and their pets along with some pretty funny stories behind the photos. They have a section on pet portraits, holiday portraits and then just photos of people with their cats, dogs, birds and even exotic pets. Our favorite is this one with the poor cat sitting on the Easter Bunny's lap - bet he will never chase bunnies again!
We even recognized a contributor to the Awkward Family Pet Photos book - Karen Nichols of The Cats Meow blog and Mousebreath.com! We give this book a full ~paws up~ for pet lovers!

Another note of interest - we visited Marg of Marg's Pets yesterday. Mom and Pop took flat Chica and went on a road trip to see all of Marg's great critters. It was so much fun. That story will be coming up later this week. See ya then!
He was Joey and Minnie's litter mate. He developed cancer while still living outdoors so I brought him inside and cared for him until he passed away in 2006. He loved all the attention he got. He was a very shy boy but handsome.
