I started this idea on another forum.

For those of you who are your cat's staff, this one will be easy. For everyone else, any feline will do.

Tanner woke me up last night to feed her, only she must be petted the entire time she is eating. Finally, after three tries at getting me to behave, she flicked her tail and walked outside.

In this photo, she's absconded with my cashmere shawl....

Tanner, well, she's a fraidy cat and she looks to me like she's about to bolt now that her secret's been discovered.

Love the pic of Cheetah in the fridge!

She's a shelter cat, but she's got a lot of the right markings for a Bengal (at least part Bengal). In discussing with the shelter folks, there are a lot of stray and shelter cats in San Antonio that have the markings (as well as behavior, such as water loving, jumping in the tub, etc.) of Bengals - they know all about it because their behavior is different/distinctive (sometimes I swear Cheetah thinks she's a dog - when I come home, she comes to the door and rolls over for me to scratch her belly). I figure some irresponsible owner of a Bengal Tomcat let their unfixed Tom roam around San Antonio some years ago... :glare:

Some years ago, "Animal Cops Houston" had an episode where they seized half wild-half domestic cats from a breeder. They made a lengthy statement about how wild those cats are. So some breeders might have gotten rid of "surplus stock".

The seized cats were first or second generation hybrid domestic to wild cats, it takes at least 4 generations from the founding hybrids to make a nice domestic cat with wild coloring.

Is it fair for an intelligent and family oriented mammal to be separated from his/her family and spend his/her life starved in a concrete jail?

My 2 Maine Coons, the male Pippin used to be my avatar some of you may recall. The brown tabby color is Snickers, she's the queen in more ways than one.

Perhaps I should take the time to sift through my cat pictures over this weekend and get some to post here. I might make the thread long unless I get multiple cats in the image. I have 7 cats.

Part of the problem is that it is hard to photograph black cats.

A few months ago I posted about my nieces cat, Burt, who was poisoned with anti-freeze.
Yesterday two new kittens came to live with her. They are 8weeks old and sisters. They are called Cagney and Lacey. :headsmack: (My nieces all time favourite TV show) Sorry about the photo. She took it with her iphone.

Whatever is true,whatever is noble,whatever is right,whatever is pure,whatever is lovely,whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.

Enjoy!
