  • I've had a lot of cats, and not one has ever slept in a darling little setup I'd arranged for them.

    Maybe I should have gone to Ikea!

  • I have 3 Siamese cats and one cat.....:-)......they live outside in garden and wherever they wanna live.....I will NEVER ever in my life have cats inside the house again.....during the years in the apartment they became worse and worse, to the limit where I was one bit from giving them up.......now still in the garden they are sometimes penetrant.....there should really be some warning before getting cats. And I haven't even yet touched on hairs, smell, toilet stuff, noises and and and!!!! NEVEEEER AGAIN!!!!

    If you live on a big farm, loads of space, I'm sure they are ok......(for Target use and plinking :-)))

  • We have one resident cat (Serafina) and currently little Telma as a foster cat and it is almost a full time job.

    I like having them around, but it is too demanding to have two cats.

  • serafina

    Think about having 4 them......:)

    Cats u cannot explain anything.....it's not like a dog.....with my dog I never have any issues.....I just tell it not to do this or that, or tell it to go to bed or downstairs....always obay.....but a cat .... difficult! Is there a classified section her on the board ? =O

  • We also have two cats.

    One is eleven years old named Rachel (don't ask), she had two litters of kittens before being neutered and we don't get on very well, mainly because she's not very clean and I refuse to have a litter tray in the house. She's also very sneaky.

    The other is a two year old black cat full of character named Floyd. He's not very bright, but he's entertaining and sometimes behaves like a dog when I call him.

    He likes to peer through the curtains at the world outside just to make sure people don't come too close and that everything is as it should be (according to him.)

    Floyd and Rachel don't get on at all and try to avoid each other where possible. But when they do get too close, fur flies all over the place.

    Floyd is usually the instigator, so I turn a blind eye.

  • We did have several but now the only one we have left is Tigre - although she's female. She has lived outside all her nine years I think she is now. She has her own outside room with bed and has a great life coming and going as she pleases. She has a fantastic laid back nature. Molly our Jack Russel who also lives outside in her own room is the only dog we have who gets on well with her. The inside dogs can't stand her so she keeps well away from them. ^^

  • Splinter

    Yeaaaa....but it was more a joke.....

    I would get rid of them, but only to someone on a farm or something like that....so I guess they stay with me untill nature separates them from me or I go wild one day =O

    I used to have three when I lived with my mom in Italy, but it was a piece of cake because they were free to go outside and so there was no litter to clean, no door to open/close. The only thing to deal with was fur (which I didn't clean anyway, since it was my mother's doing the cleaning, ahem...)

    They were also going along very well, so it was fun having them around. They were all different in food preferences, but nothing out of this world: one only wanted dry food, while the other twos enjoyed fresh food now and then.


    Once I had 5 foster kittens plus Serafina for a long weekend- the vet shop asked kindly if we could take care of them for the weekend (and maybe find them a home) and I happily complied... I fell in love with the bunch of them, and even delayed of a day returning them to the vet store :whistling:


    But I was cleaning the litter every hour, and it was supercool to open a can of tuna and having a hoard of small kitten coming onto it like rats.

    It was also nice to observe the different characters and attitude: one was the alpha, VERY smart, always ahead of the pack. The black one was his vice - always in an awe of the alpha, always behind him.

    Then there was baby cat who was a wimpy micro kitten, the younger of them all. He had the strongest will of them all, but since he was limpy and smaller and undernourish, he had his limits so I was always looking after him. He was adopted by a Brit expat and is living a great life in Soho.

    Then there were two little long-haired brother-and-sister, all fluffy and clumsy. They slipped on their furry paws and were just TOO CUTE. The female was the dumbest of the bunch: when the alpha had already scoured a plate of tuna and was going after the other ones, she barely noticed that 1) there was smell of tuna 2) everybody had left to have the tuna.


    This is me covered in 5 kitten (the black one is hardly noticeable, on the left)

  • Floyd is very chatty and buena onda. A true Argentinian!!!

    Oh those mesmerizing eyes! I always feel so little and simple before a cat!
