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.
Sam here. Since so many of our white cats are mancats, we thought we would feature them on our Monday posts. Al (pictured above) is our resident deaf cat. His magnificent blue eyes and long fur give him movie star presence but he does have a lot of personality issues being deaf. He doesn't hear us coming and gets easily startled and attacks - not much fun but we don't seem to have figured out how not to sneak up on him.
This is me, Sam - I am a shy guy and don't like it when Mom gets that flashy box out. I am the only one with a tipped ear. Mom asked the vet to do this when I got fixed to help her tell us apart and to know that I had been neutered when we were still outside. I don't mind - it gives me a rakish look.
This is Two Spot. Some white cats are born with light black or grey markings on their heads that fade with age. He had two so Mom named him Two Spot never thinking they would fade. Now every asks how he got the the name and she has to explain.....
Hope you enjoyed visiting with us - we will bring the other whitesters out next Monday!
Formerly Feral Sweetpea here with the post for today. Mom got a new DSLR camera for Christmas and can finally take photos of all us black cats indoors without just getting a blob with eyes! Yay for Mom!
With Valentine's Day coming up, one of our local shelters has declared Feb 1-28 to be Black Tie Affair to help get their black cats adopted. Black cats are always the last to leave a shelter. They want to get the word out that according to animal behaviorist Temple Grandin who wrote the book Animals Make Us Human that black cats tend to have calmer and friendlier dispositions than other cats and are more social.
Today we are featuring Tuxedo cats or Billicats. Even tho I am not quite one cuz I only have a white spot on my chest I am the spokescat for this week.
Way back months ago, we did a post about Avon from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue and looked today to find out she is still there and still looking for her forever home. We need to do something about this. This is Avon and we will let her tell her story.
I was rescued from an abusive home just days before I gave birth to 6 kittens. I arrived at my foster home with my six 3-day-old kittens and I then took on 2 more kittens who had been abandoned. I was a fantastic mother to these eight kittens. I am just over a year old. I am a VERY sweet gal. I love to cuddle. I talk to get your attention - I just love to be the center of attention now that my babies are on their own. Please call my foster mom so you can meet such a precious lady; her number is (828) 778-3011. Or you can contact Brother Wolf Rescue in Asheville, NC
Georgie here. Just turned on the computer this morning and guess what was here! Our blog was back!!!!! Of course Mom already paid for a hosted Wordpress blog yesterday and got that set up to go - we think we will still use it and move this one to be safe but not right away. This will give us time to get going on it.
We appreciate all of you who followed us to our temporary cat blog and continued to visit us. It has been a very upsetting time for Mom thinking she lost the whole blog with 2 years of work. We look forward to many more years and will be backing up our blog as we go along! Don't want this to happen again.
Happy Wednesday everyone! I am going back to my nap.
It is our final Femme Friday with two of the older cats featured today. We love our hats by Judi from Sammy and Andy's Place! Chica looks stunning in her teal and white hat. She has had CRF for 4 years now and is going to be 20 this summer! We love her dearly and dote on her with special treats and extra special love. She is still a fiesty girl and when she wants attention she stands on her hind legs and pounds her front feet on the wall, blinds or even a framed print on the wall knowing we will go get her to make her stop!
Yoko is a young 17 and will be 18 come March! She is a quiet girl, living most of her life in the shadow of larger than life Chica. Yoko likes having all the other cats now cuz she blends in and can do what she wants without Chica messing with her. She is Daddy's girl and will sit next to or on Pop whenever she can. Both Yoko and Chica came to us when we were living in Florida, joined us in our move to North Carolina - have moved seven times and went from just two cats to so many they probably lost count! They are real troopers and we never expected to have them both this long. We are so grateful.
Georgie is a very sweet girl and only a young 4 years old. She is from Lily's first litter with Sam, Woody and Norm. A very girly girl who loves to be petted and fussed over. She is very quiet but knows how to tell us what she wants. She will tug at Mom's clothes if she wants food, a refill or a treat. She is sweet and very pretty with a perfect little face.
Thanks for stopping by to see the last of our girls in hats - we would like to leave you with some great hat quotes.....

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.
