Furry Felines

We have three cats that think we have this house just for them. It appears they maintain the idea all I have to do is make sure they have plenty of food, cold clean water, clean litter boxes and allow them to sleep where ever they decide to at any given time and for as many hours as they desire.

But stop and think about it...they bring us much pleasure, laughter, enjoyment and unconditional love.
This is Touche. She is definitely the matriarch of the clan. Age wise, she is around 14 to 15 years old. Seems as if we have had her for ever and ever. Old age for her is causing some problems. She does not jump to very high places now. Her favorite sleeping places are the windows in the computer room or the blue wing back chair in there. She will play around with the other two from time to time - but when she is through she will stick one paw out and make a hissing noise. They know then the game is over with and to go on about their business....(that really means go find a place to curl up and go to kitty cat la - la- land).
This is Stormy - she is the middle child. Believe it or not, this is one of her favorite resting places. She used to be very, very fond of Leon...sitting in his lap and begging for a lick of vanilla ice cream from his spoon. However, after his catching her for a trip to the vet (for the "necessary" fix operation) she will not have very much to do with him. She has not forgiven him! On occasion, he can pet her with no problem. But for the most part she just ignores him.
This is the baby! He is the biggest and baddest.! But also the most lovable. He goes by the title of "Tramp". He was found in a field - crying his poor little heart out one cold blustery day. He was so scared and would not come to me - even though I had food. That night I just left the food on the front porch- with the thought if he could cross the road and eat, it would be destined for him to come live with us. Sure enough, the next morning he was at our house. After some "rounding up" we were able to get him in the house. It took all of about five to ten minutes before he decided he liked our house and me.
Stormy and Tramp think they have a new bed.
Any changes in the house have to be approved. This little doll decoration had just been put on the hearth as part of the fall decorations.

Yes, we spoil them!
