    More fur baby pictures please..here's more of mine..

    I would love to see more pictures of everyone's fur babies. I already posted Sam, so here are my other 2.
    The first 2 are Ralph. Ralph is a she. I rescued her from under the bus coming home from work 10 yrs. ago. I saw her from my seat when the bus stopped to pick up someone. She was following a woman and
    child. When they got on the little girl said "mommy, the kitty", and the mother snapped, "it's not ours".
    The driver started to pull away and I yelled, "wait, the kitten!". He growled, "it's under the bus". I got off and looked and luckily she came right to me. I got back on, just waiting for the driver to say anything.
    She squirmed and howled all the way home. She was so tiny she still had blue eyes and waddled. She must have been born outside and wandered away from her mother and litter. It must have been a while because she was so skinny. After she ate she looked just like a brown pear.
    The second is Patches. We got him almost 3 yrs ago when we went into a pet store for something and heard a kitten crying. I looked around and there he was in a cage. He just kept crying so I asked to hold him. My DH said, "no more cats". Yeah..sure. He was about 3 months old. The saleslady told us that a woman took in a stray and 2 kittens. She kept the mother and 1 kitten and brought the other there.
    He was a "talker", which I always wanted. The rest is history. He weighs about 15 lbs. now. Like any little boy, he hates mushy but tolerates my hugging and kissing him. One odd thing he does, whenever he hears one of us pull a tissue out of a box, he starts crying and warbling, almost like he's going to sing.
    Whenever he sees DH starting to sneeze, he does the same thing. It tickles us no end. Sometimes we'll pull out a tissue just to hear him "sing". We call him "handsome dude" and he just gives a look as if to say,
    " I know".

    This is my boy drake, he usually is sleeping in the spare bedroom next to my sewing room. But he occasionally comes in to get a cuddle and check things out (am sure he is checking to see if I have an escape hatch in there )

    And this is Keegan, that basket is right next to my sewing machine. He likes to supervise from there. And heaven forbid I touch him, I might pull back a bloody digit he is not the most kind animal when he doesnt want to be

    I have two white fluffs/ fur balls and both are definitely fur balls
    They are much bigger now they are both supposed to be Turkish Angora's but one is definitely bigger and fluffier than the other one. And the bigger one named Dash was the runt when we got them from the shelter now he is 2 x the size of his brother named Yeti. They are definitely funny cats one has pure blue eyes(Yeti) and the other Dash has 1 blue and 1 green eye. We call the smaller one Baby Yeti as he cries all the time if he does not have attention or is shut out of a room someone is in.

    I love your pictures too. I rescue puppies and kittens because everyone must get along I find when they are introduced young, there are no huge problems. I never look for them but the Good Lord makes sure they cross our path cause we will make them part of our family. Most of them are special needs but the love makes it all worth while

    Here are a couple pictures of my kitties. Caspurr is about 7 years old. He was found in a dumster and was the most pity-full little kitten ever. Now he is my sweet and gentle boy and weighs about 12 lbs.

    Callie is 7 months old. I got her from a co-worker when Callie was just 6 weeks old. She has the softest fur I have ever petted. She is so playful when she wants to be. Caspurr loves Callie and will hold her down and bathe her. She will get mad sometimes and they will start chasing each other through the house. They are so comical to watch.

    I have 3 cats...two are from rescue organizations and one we rescued ourselves of the street. Our oldest is a 7 year old female brown tabby named Ginger. She is very quiet, always sleeping and pretty easy going. Our middle one is a 18 month old ornage tabby male named Pumpkin. Pumpkin is very affectionate, vocal and a big baby. The youngest is just 6 month old and a female Main Coon Mix (that is our street rescue) named Tigger. Tigger is curious, playful, very friendly and very vocal. She and Pumpkin have had an instant bond and we call her his sidekick

    This is Pearl(ie), a now tamed, but still outdoor, barn cat. She is named for the necklace of white fur that circles her neck. Pearlie likes to stick her head in the front door if I open it and look around a moment to see if any thing has changed; sometimes she will come in and quickly check out each room before returning to the door and waiting for me to let her out again.
    I love how she rolls over on her back and presents her soft white tummy when I come close; I call her Pearlie-Whirlie.
    Here she naps on the original well house steps among the summer vinca.

    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    My long haired Tabby loves to drag around shoestrings and howl the strangest sounds I tied a string to his mouse...I repeat his sounds back to him, but if I'm quiet, he brings the mouse to me as if to say, "I'm talking to you"! He sleeps wherever he can be touching me...a rescue that is now 12yrs old...his feet have never touched ground

    I just love the pics and stories of your fur babies! It makes me know there are still a lot of kind hearted people in the world. My husband and I rescue cats, also. I am at my limit (nine outside and one inside due to medical issues) All fixed except one that I can't catch no matter what I do. Of course, it is a girl, and I really don't want any babies, but she is so smart that I can't catch her.
    They all bring a lot of joy into our lives!

    At one time (about 15 years) ago I had 5 rescue kittens, all from different sources. I lives in a pretty big apt complex with low rent so not the finest clientele, and everytime someone moved and left their cat (you would not believe how oftern this happens) my landlord brought me the cat. They were all wonderful with the exception of The Baby (her name was Celeste) who was a devil, and always thinking up some evil trick to play on somebody, cat or human. The she would run to the top of the cat tree and roll over twice, in a victory roll. Shae was a tiny, but fat dilute calico.

    The Baby was the first one to die, about 5 years ago from an asthma attack. A man who was doing some carpentry fell in love with Sienna and pleaded so hard, that she went home with him. He got a divorce since then but he and Sienna are still together. She is a gorgeous Calico. The others were with me for a long time. Moonlight, my neuotic, badly abused, gray with a whit nose, died last year from hyperthyroidism. And my only boy Fabriz died in Jan from kidney failure. He was only sick for a couple of weeks before we noticed and took him to the vet.

    All of the above were "move out" cats.

    My lone girl, now, was found in a ditch by a county lineman when she was 4 weeks old. She was exhausted from walking and at first he thought she was dead. They decided she had probably walked away from a feral mother. She is now 16.

    I got her as soon as she was bottle weaned. She is a beautiful long haired tortie, and has the torti attitude of "Queen of the Universe". She is a love-bug. Love me or I will bug you.

    And that's the crew. My niece had my camera so long that when she brought it back yesterday I found I can't remember how to use it, but I'll try to get some picture today or tomorrow.

    I really enjoyed hearing about everybody's babies. What would we do without them.

    Love the fur baby pictures. I would post a picture of our wonderful pitt/rottweiler mix but my DH fixed our computer several years ago and it won't let us do pictures or anything else other than standard email. LOL

    My DH and I have 3 dogs (all pedigreed mutts) a little bit of pedigree in each one of them. Bridget is mostly black and looks like she's wearing a tuxedo. Her sister littermate, Bianca is mostly white with spots. I believe they have some dalmation in them. It's funny because if their spots were holes you would be able to see right through them. They both have spots on their head and another just like it in the roof of their mouths. We adopted them at Petsmart. My husband witnessed our next one Brutus being thrown out the back window of a car on a busy roadway traveled by semis and construction size (ready-mix) trucks. He was a spunky 4-5 month old then and is to this day a spunky 5 year old. He looks like a little black Scotty. He thinks he is Alpha male. They never stop moving and that is why I am unable to get good photos.

    I loved reading about the babies. I have four cats. Our dog Bear just recently died of heart failure. He looked a lot like the dog above. All ours animals have been someone elses "throw always". I wish I was able to do more.
