You know I noticed your girls are calico/tortis. They can tend to be a bit high spirited. And a bit hard for some folks to understand. But also very loving and intelligent. You da best FIREd.

Our guy Boots like to sit between my legs and get his back scratched. Here is a candid shot from the other day:

Love all the pics...especially the ones that are newly adopted.

I really should not look at this thread, but I can't help myself. For now we'll remain petless, but maybe one day...

Here is a picture of our new kitty. We got her from someone at school who found her and took her in. Unfortunately, she was bugging the crap out of her other cat.

She's all gray, even her nose and her paws and her whiskers. She loves to play and walk across everything, especially things up high. She looks bigger than she really is. I think she's the smallest kitty I've ever had.

We lost Abby in July and this cat is completely gray. If DH agrees (he'll be home tomorrow after 2.5 weeks with the Red Cross and Hurricane Sandy), I think I'll call her Gabby (Gray + Abby).

Yes, she is very, very soft. She's tearing back and forth in our smallish apartment. Our bedroom, living room over the couch, guest bedroom...reverse...repeat!

We always called that "frapping", derived from FRAP (frenetic random activity period).

Here is my favorite photo of Smokey. This was my African Spurred tortoise's winter home. It is nice and warm and Smokey had to get reacquainted with the tortoise after a summer of the tortoise living outside. My tortoise is so big now he can't even fit in the tube. All the cats are indoor cats.

Yeah, he looks kinda intense. But truth be told, Eddie is a total wimp. He hides when company comes over or if we get a thunderstorm. But he's sweet and we love him
