    UPDATE on 'my new baby'

    Wed we got a new kitten but unfortunately she turned out to be really timid and not a right match for us. PLUS I was very allergic to her so..............

    We exchanged her and here is our new baby and she's a keeper! This is my DGD cat, she chose her and named her Oreo and she's 4 mos old.

    See the white hairs on her back, so cute!

    Sure looks like a keeper! Why are you allergic to one cat and not all? I have found my allergies have diminished, but no enough to allow my husband to get a cat which he'd very much like. That dark spot at the nose is priceless.

    She is cute. Sorry the other one did not work out. Hope she finds her forever home soon.

    After my first Dachshund died, I got a Basset Hound. I had him five weeks. Had to go back. Allergic to Bassets. Huh?? Well I got another Dachshund, and he was with me nearly 16 years. Funny how that goes.

    Regular short air cats don't bother my allergies but Persian cats do. I don't know why but with so many cats needing loving homes, I am glad one found a new owner. Oreo looks like a sweetie!

    Your Oreo is a sweetheart! I love black or black/white cats. :-) May you have manyhappyt times with Oreo.

    When I tested for allergies about 10 years ago, I was allergic to cats. The docs told me to get rid of them. NO WAY! They'd been with us 10 years and we were all family. So, move ahead 10 more years to a new state and new allergies, but guess what? I am no longer allergic to cats!! Kind of funny weird. Oh, yes, the cats died. One was 19 and the other made 20. They gave us a lot of enjoyment.

    Dachshunds don't have the usual doggy odor, the Basset Hound is very stinky. I'm allergic to any breed of cat, would love to have one, but they cause severe asthma problems.

    I have a Tuxedo cat also. She is really sweet and harasses my 2 old english sheepdogs, meowing until one gets up and chases her around the yard and up a tree. She loves playing that game with them. LOL

    So sorry that "Twinkle" didn't work out. Just glad that she was adopted & now so nice to know that "Oreo" has a new home. She is so pretty, but I think they all are. We are the proud Fur-Parents of seven. Six inside & one outside that claimed us. LOL. I hope that all of your furbabies are one big happy/purring family.

    Yes, they sure are funny! My brew are more fun to watch than TV sometimes LOL. Oreo is already bonded with me and follows me around. She's sleeping with Eiley (GDG) right now :-)

    My sister has 5, her daughter has 2 and they are fostering 1 more. My son has 3, so guess you could say 15 cats were adopted in my family

    So glad to hear that your entire family has saved so many lives. I think you need to have a "Cat" portrait done of the entire cat family. LOL. Like mine they would never be still for very long. Oreo knows a good thing when she sees it. God bless you all.

    I just love that black nose. She looks like a real sweetheart. Wish I could have a animal, but can't where I live.
