    Or sometimes two of them get peeved.

    We've had two cats for a few years- Boomer and Yokozuki. Boomer's handicapped (birth defects involving his front legs and paws) and Yoko arrived after we agreed to "babysit" her for a neighbor while his wife was pregnant. They got along fine after a little bit.

    Then we acquired Stitch last Christmas after a neighbor found her half frozen outside our house. The introductions did not go well. Yoko is very protective of Boomer. Boomer wants nothing to do with Stitch but Stitch wants everything to do with Boomer.

    The daily result? Stitch tries to play with Boomer. Boomer hisses. Yoko walks up and pops Stitch on the head. Stitch walks away to play with something that won't hiss or pop her on the head.

    I have never been much of a cat fan, especially black ones. My wife wants to get another cat, and I told her "no way." The last one we had was crazy with a capital "C". She gets them and I end up taking care of them.

    Now we're to "If you get one, it has to be a "yellow" one to match the dog." I'm still hoping for "no cat at all."

    Man, if you would fatten him up a little, you could call him "Javy."

    Re: Just got a new kitten...

    Here's our trifecta...



    That's Boomer-roo. If his front paws look messed up, that's because they are. Genetic defect. Elbows joints fused on the front legs. Only two toes on the front right paw. Left paw is at a 90-degree angle to his left front leg. Doesn't know and doesn't care. Tail is about 3 inches too long, which supports him standing on his hind legs a lot. Moonwalks better than Michael Jackson in his prime. Best...cat...ever. He'll pass away eventually but cannot possibly be replaced in any way, shape, or form.



    Stichywizz. Small cat. Probably won't get a lot bigger. With her attitude, she doesn't need to. In a better picture her face looks like it's on fire; red ear tufts and all. Currently guarding the wife's wine stash. Not a cat to be trifled with. Pees entirely too often outside the litterbox. To the chagrin of her housemates, she has an incredible "play" motor. If you want to play, she wants to play. If you don't want to play, she still wants to play. Much ear-flattening and hissing ensues.



    Yokozuki. Entirely ticked off that she has to be photographed...ever. Entirely ticked off that Stich was ever born. Neurotic to a fault. Loosely translated to English, her name means "Someone who is crazy about something but not very good at it." Yoko is crazy about being a cat but she just isn't very good at it. A great petting to her involves thumps to the back of the rear just in front of her tail. She's like a dog without the loyalty.

    So cute! We have similar Feline Politics in the house. Tia owns the 3rd floor. Ling owns the 1st. The second floor is somewhat neutral.

    Whenever they lay within 10 feet of each other, it's something to note. They do let each other share food dishes. Ling waits patiently while Tia eats.

    Ling is twice the size of Tia, but Tia's older and asserts her dominance whenever possible.

    Re: Just got a new kitten...

    I'm a total cat person, I like their independance and their quiet, non needy existance.

    That's all pretty new to me, I grew up with a dog and no cats, and always wanted a a dog I thought......

    However I prefer non Tabbys myself, Tabbys are the dogs of the cat world they love everything and everyone.

    I have 2 brothers that are a Maine Coon and Persian mix, one is the Runt and the other the king of the litter, the Runt (Pez) is spunky and a spaz, the Big one (Hoss) is mine, I belong to him, I have never had a animal that loved me as much as that cat does.

    He weighs about 15 pounds and the little one 12, they get along great and spend most of their time lounging around together or within each others sight.

    After a week we are almost past the pissin-and-hissin acclimation period. I actually saw them rubbing noses and licking each other yesterday. Then, last night about 3a whilst Molly is lying on her waterbed (my fat gut), Wing decides to start a fight. I came up out of bed with two cats flying, my CPAP hose wrapped around my neck and reaching for my Smith. Wish I had video of that.

    Re: Just got a new kitten...

    Here's our three...

    Dan Rather is the orange one. Nice looking but dumb as a post. He loves to lay in the sun, curl up with the dog and is prone to running wildly around the house at 10:30pm for no apparent reason. He's gotten himself into more trouble just by being...well...slow. He's rolled on his back trying to be cute and rolled completly over and off the bed on more than one occasion. Then he gets up and looks at you with those big dumb eyes.

    Lita is manic depressive. One minute you sneeze suddenly, her tail puffs up she hisses and runs off. The next minute she is forcing herself on you and basically making you pet/rub her. As you can tell in the picture she likes to curl up with Dan durring the day. They are usually in the 2nd bedroom or bay window sleeping away the day and storing up energy so they can chase each other as we are trying to fall asleep.

    The black cat burried in the yellow blanket is Bif-Gif. She's a bandit. She'll try to steal about any pieice of food so you must remain on guard at all times. She's made off with slices of pizza and chicken wings more than once. She's the one most likely to whap one of the other cats on the face and then run off as if nothing happened. She's the "alpha-cat" and the 50lbs hound dog stears clear of this feline.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
