  •  No more next kitties, I think (16+ / 0-)

    We still have four lovely cats. Our black female is 4 1/2 years old. She is heavily outnumbered by 2 energetic black males (littermates) who are just a year old, and a lovely silver grey male who is 7 months old. The boys are a real team. The black boys accepted the grey one immediately, took him under their wings and are teaching him everything they know, plus learning from him. Cranberry, our female, is a little standoffish. I think if she just had one to visit with she would be fine, but three is taxing her good nature. But time will take care of that. She likes them better a little each day.

    All four are rescue kitties.

    •  Oh, that sounded a little harsh. (16+ / 0-)

      No more kitties because we are in our early 70's. If these kittens live as long as our others--we may not be around that long!

        My third shelter cat just celebrated his 1st B-Day 2-25.  My other two cats that I had consecutively (one outdoor, and the next indoor) lived to be 14 & 18 y/o.

        This one is an indoor cat, too.  I'm 65 and in pretty good health, but I wonder which one of us passes first.  And if it's Nike, would I consider getting another one?

        Maybe I could just volunteer at a shelter ... but it's not the same as having one curl up with at bedtime.

        Any, blessings and prayers for you in your time of sorrow.  May the wonderful memories of Feather be a balm.
