Post your cute cat pics here

OK, we saw the dog thread. They are adorable! It's now time to see some cute kitties. Here is Eddie, one of mine. He was rescued from a shelter in West Virginia.

Adorable! Here are my two enjoying the sun. Both are rescued feral cats; they've adapted quite well to being spoiled indoor cats!

p.s. ignore the date on the pic; forgot to reset the date on the camera

I was going to post a pic of my cats, but Simple Girl must have taken my kitties when I wasn't looking! My cats look exactly like yours. Only difference is my black and white cat is half the size of my Tabby.

LOL, the black and white one is around 18#, the tabby is around 9# or so. The black and white one makes sure he never misses a meal...!

This is Peanut. He passed away 2 1/2 years ago at 18. I still miss him. He's my baby and I will love him forever. He was a lap cat who loved to be held. I could get him to jump into my arms when I was standing. He was incredibly loyal and very smart.

I don't have a digitized picture of Sweetie, my only cat at this time. She's a former feral obtained from my workplace 11 years ago. But below are Flip, Spanky, and Pismo, three other feral kittens from work. They were adopted to good homes.

All three rescued. The black one from under our cabin in Colorado while on our honeymoon, the black and white one that my dog brought home in her mouth when the kitten was 4 weeks old and the orange one rescued semi feral when about a year old. They are too funny and a source of constant entertainment to us. As my grandpa used to say "People who don't like cats just never really knew one."

Tuna and Fub protect us from excess heat escaping from the heat duct, old man Fubber helps type, a scraggly old bobcat that said he wasn't wild enough to turn down chicken here in the California desert this week - that boy had some long heavy legs, big feet, and a cool growl - but he also purred briefly!

This was our cat Misty. She died last May at age 18.

We are currently looking for two kittens in need of a home.

Such beautiful kitties! I didn't realize I was a cat person until an orange and white tabby adopted us after being abandoned in our condo complex. He was about a year old and eleven pounds; is now about fifteen and 25 pounds! Yes, I know, way too big (he sounds like a mountain lion when he purrs) but he has lost no weight after years on a cup a day of very low calorie food. Here's Tang:

Here's the neighbor cat that owns and patrols our yard year-round. He's cuddly in the summer, but when the temperature gets down to single digits I'm not allowed to muss his fur because it lets out the heat.

Thing is, that IS a bobcat, L. Rufus Californicus! Very little in the way of game in the desert right now, dry year. Bobcats come around now and again down here, but this one was hanging out in the daytime. Scrawny and limping, it was pretty low energy. Perked up when it got a chicken carcass and the next day even walked to within 6' of me. Looked like the chicken did it some good, haven't seen him since, though i have hopes before we head home again. A real treat to get close enough to him to have him growl (low distinct seperate R R R R) and then briefly purr after some food. Blows me away to have been that close, but short tail, ear tufts, side whiskers, ear markings, relative leg length and thickness, paw size - that's no domestic cat!

These are my two boys, now about 10 months old, adopted from the local rescue organization. Jake is the tiger, Dillon is the black and white. Litter mates but totally different personalities.
