Default Cats thread (& other pets)


I'm bored to death because here is 40 degrees (=104 F) and I want to have a positive thread for once, where we can talk about our pets with a personal preference for cats and maybe exchange advices and experiences among animal lovers.

So this is my female cat Perla; she's 15 years old but she's still kicking butts since, as you can see, she's stolen my fancy magenta jumper. I took her in when she was just 2 weeks old, born from the litter of the cat of my sisters's friend:

I also had another younger cat named Izzie that me and my family saved from a moat, but unfortunately she was half purebred and she died from a genetic illness three years ago. This is her (Sorry for the ****ty quality):

And right after Easter my beloved dog Black left us four months after being diagnosed with cancer. Thankfully, he left peacefully while sleeping due to his very old age though:

I'm glad your pets had a loving life before passing away. Perla is gorgeous!!!

I have 8 rescue cats, you can see them here.

Thank you!
Yes, Perla is pretty and she knows it!

You have such beauties! I think I have a crush on Frida

By the way you're pretty, you resemble Elizabeth Reaser.

Thank you!

It warms my heart you have a crush on Frida. It's just that in Brazil, tortoiseshell cats are the least likely to get adopted. I volunteer at a shelter and sadly, these beauties are considered ugly.

I happen to think they are gorgeous, I mean, look at my Frida:

Really? And to think that tortoiseshell cats and their other variations like Calicos here are believed to bring good luck.
My neighbour has a long-haired black-Sienna tortoishell cat that I envy him greatly.
Seriously, Frida could be a cat model.

Gypsy is an amazing name!
Izzie was half (or maybe a quarter) maine coon. She had inerited their friendly and playful disposition, along with her stocky-ness and the long tufts of hair on neck, chest, stomach, butt and tail:

She has that look about her a lot

Don't let the cute face fool you, she's a little diva when she wants to be and VERY cheeky. But she's so soft and sweet - not really a lap cat, but very sociable and alwyas wants to be around people. She's not one for sitting on your knee, mainly because she's too big, but she's never far away from us.

She's beautiful... all that fur...
Also Izzie was sweet and sociable but didn't want to be in my lap. She just wanted to knead my thighs, if I was on the sofa, or my stomach, if I was on the bed; all while tickling me with her soft tail on my face or neck.

Too many pets in our household (one missing from the pics as he doesn't hang out with the rest of them)
