Default My own Cats

I just snatched some cute pictures of my own cats, Gremlin (white) and his sister Rosy. Both are from the first litter I fostered 7 years ago and both are feline leukemia positive.

However, they are healthy otherwise, show no problems, are inside/outside cats, but right now it's cold, so they stay inside and only use the doggy door to go outside to eliminate. Yes, I do not do litter boxes, hehehe:

They look so adorable & cute!!! I guess they're very friendly.

We don't keep cats in the house too. Now it's raining season & very cold but still my mom doesn't let the cats to stay in the house except for Pinky & the two young kittens. I thought of buying a cage for the other cats. Guess tonite they've to stay in the house since it's flooding out there.

Thanx MissDolittle but no one seems to listen to me. Akeer is missing since last nite. The other cats are safe & sound. Lets just pray Akeer is safe & sound somewhere. I'm going to search for him again this afternoon.

Nice pic of a snowy dog with a snowy cat.

Unless cats are confined in a cage or building or trapped somewhere, they have a way of finding a spot to survive in a flood. They are actually pretty good swimmers AND climbers, so there is a good chance Akeer is in a safe dry spot.

I hope he finds his way home fast though, so you can stop worrying.

I agree with you bcoz I saw some stray cats that sleep at our backyard are very much alive. My brother-in-law is telling me the same thing. Thanx MissDolittle.

BTW MissDolittle, do you keep Gremlin & Rosy in cage when they sleep outside the house (during nite time)? My family members are against the idea that cats shd be in the cage at nite (outside the house). The one I bought is big enuff for all the adult cats. I bought it even though they're not my cats.

I would never put an adult cat in a cage. My cats use the doggy door. They go in and out when they want. They usually don't leave our back yard, or if, then just to go across to the neighbor's yard who has cats too. They are inside most of the time when it's cold, and when it's warm, they sleep somewhere in a tree.

Our adult cats don't leave the backyard esp Vader. Whereas the mother cat & Pinky love to play & follow Akeer. That explained why Pinky got lost last Nov. Cats by nature love to roam around, play & hunt. I think Akeer would never leave the backyard if it's not for the stray cats. The stray cats really want to chase him out. The cats spend most of the times inside the house except at nite.

Well, no sign of Akeer today. I keep telling myself that he's fine but can't help worrying abt him.

Thanx MissDolittle.

In fact I watched a video clip of a cat swimming in a pool. Surprisingly the cat can swim even though he never swim before. He was so cute. I guess Akeer was doing the same thing too.

I believe that it is not the water itself that cats hate, it's the noise that water makes. The reason why I believe that is because all kittens I get love the water, if I introduce them to running water carefully and associate it with feeding. But if I turn on the water for an older cat, they react scared because it does sound a little bit like a big thing is hissing at them.

Has Akeer returned yet?
