Sadly I don't have any, but their names are Bucky and Marshmallow. I prefer Bucky because he is so much sweeter and dose not do the love bite thing that marshmallow does

both males and are brothers. I think their father was a cat we called buster that hanged around my house and then disappeared. I don't care if I am byist Bucky is better, he is also the better looking in my opinion

Aww. What happened to him? My dad rescued tiger out from living under a tralier with his mom and brother. My mom had lost her 21-year-old cat the year earlier and was too heart broken to get another. My dad had to make the choice for her. Lol Tiger was all flee bitten and needed to be washed up. We (my dad and I) brought tiger over to my grandparents house to wash tiger up. We were still picking flees out of him for the next 3 months.
Edit: MissNoodle-I asked you a question

Aww, tiger is super cute.
Shadow is a rescue/stray we found, so she is a bit quirky and super grateful.

Some pics that actually capture her adorable round eyes. It’s funny how when you give a cat a nice, big, comfy bed they sleep on your dirty laundry.

When she gets happy she can’t control her saliva and it just drips and drips till there is a little wet spot on my lap. Sunshine (our last cat) was the same way.

That’s adorable! My cat loves a variety of food too, including potato chips, nori, pita bread, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and spaghettI with sauce.
I have a special place in my heart for orange cats.

I think Honeybee hopes to, by rolling all over my homework, smudge it in such a way that somehow completes it with all the correct answers. Kind of like that monkey with a typewriter scenario.

Shadow earned his name from attacking his own shadow relentlessly when he was a kitten, not because he’s black.

Do you have a nickname for Tiger? My cats are Squishy (Honeybee), Kitty (Shadow), and Buttle (Oliver).

He likes to walk all over my keyboard and sit down on top of my papers (including to one that I am writing).

We live up north so Lina has come to love snow, unless it's higher than her head then she says no thank you. Tiger is super cute but the way, my husband had a cat named Chuckles back in the day who looked just like him.

Yes. I have 3 long haired house cats and currently in the adoption process of 2 barn cats. My house cats were all drop offs at my house. Two are semi-feral but definitely interact with us. You can pet them but only on their terms! And yes, the two dilute torties are sisters

Thank you. I really miss him. I think he was about 16. I need to check my records. He was a feral kitten at my sister’s house. She trapped him and neutered him and he’s been a fixture at my barn ever since. He became quite “un-feral” Lol! And was the best ratter I’ve ever seen.

Yep, hence all the pictures of her outdoors. She and Rifka our dog travel with us, Lina likes to sit on my lap and put her paws on the steering wheel like she's driving. Lina even hikes off leash in the woods with Rifka, and plays in the water if it's hot.

Same with tiger. My dad (yes, I still live at home) found him under a trailer living with his mom and brother. Tiger just laid there when my dad came to pick him up. He was a birthday present for my mom who "wasn't ready' for another cat yet (even though her cat had died 11 months before). He has sooooooo many fleas in him. We were picking them out for the next two months!

I'm all about long-haired cats, this was my first cat - who was a long-haired domestic:

1. Loved those shoe boxes. Caught him yawning.

2. Here he is trying to make a sandwhich?

Thank you! Idaho is very lovely to explore. honestly, as soon as we got Lina as a kitten I put a harness on her within the week that I modified just to fit her. I bought a little Chihuahua harness and undid the stitching and restitched it to fit her. I let her walk around the house with it and gave her treats and let her just walk in the harness for about a week before I put a leash on her. Then I walked her with my dog who she was very attached to and thought she was her mother and she never wanted to be left behind from Rifka so she learned to walk on a leash! She can do up to a mile before she gets tired, so we have a special little backpack that she can ride in once she gets tired. We discovered that she has a heart condition so she can't hike a super long ways without her heart beating too fast and making her out of breath, so she loves her backpack too.

A cat that goes out side when you walk her! lol (though I can't really talk b/c tier goes outside in out yard sometimes). But a dog that uses a litter box...………...……………………..? have you considered taking either (or both) of them to see a psychologist?

honestly I think the best decision I ever made was raising a kitten and a puppy at the same time. it was also the worst decision I ever made because that first month or so was pure chaos and it was so stressful and I cried a lot. They used to fight a lot and it really stressed me out. I constantly had to watch them. Now they are best friends and they do everything together! Which means sometimes I come home and find both my dog and cat sitting in the window sill. Or Lina kitty will run to the door when the UPS man comes and stand in front of it growling because she's trying to protect the house. Their personalities really rub off on each other and they learn a lot from each other. I have never seen a dog clean herself for 45 minutes like mine does, but she got that from the cat

I don't think that's what he meant, I think he was saying that it was nice that a cat got to go on hikes like a dog. Not because other cats are mistreated, but because cats can be trained and a lot of people don't realize it so they never get the opportunity to try new things like going on hikes and so the cat doesn't get to live up to its full potential. That doesn't mean they don't have a great life, they just don't get to try some of the stuff that dogs get to do. I'm pretty sure it was not a slight on cat people.

I harness trained my cats too, but I don’t really walk them. I just put them on when I took my cats outside in the yard. They quickly learned that the harnesses meant they were going to play outside!
Harness training them also helped them learn to stay in the yard when I let them out without them on. They are always supervised when outside. If they get nervous, they run to the back door so I can let them inside.

I recently got an invisible fence because my neighbor called the cops on me for having unleashed animals outside, claiming they were antagonizing his dog (his dog barks all the time if there are cats or not, plus my cats won’t go out if the dog is out). I guess it’s not enough for me to be following my cats when they’re outside. Since they love frolicking so much and a leash was kind of restricting (they are only so long and get caught on bushes), I had a fence installed. Now they have big, clunky collars to wear. Sigh.

Tiger loves to mess with the neighboors dogs. He is let outside too. No leash tho. My dad doesn't believe in them.

Unleashed animals on your own property is not a problem, it's your property.

Unleashed animals on someone else's property is potentially a problem. We had a neighbor tell another neighbor to keep her cat on her own property as it was killing birds etc. on his property. Well...that's what some cats do. But, I do see his point of view - it's his property, end of story.
