I find it interesting how the kitties pair up. None of these are siblings or related in any fashion. It’s taken years for PB and Sassy to pair up.
PB and Sassy spend a lot of time curled up together on the couch or the bed. They knead each other’s bellies and sleep for hours. We’re always snapping pics of their antics cause of course, we find them cute. PB is old and looks so tiny compared to Sassy. PB is our last “foreign kitty” as we brought her home from our last assignment in Saudi Arabia. Sassy is a rescue kitty from El Paso, TX.
Most of our kitties have 2 things in common…they’re rescue and they’re ugly, lol….but we love them each and every one.
These two boys are almost pathetic. They are unrelated and they are almost a year apart in age…yet, they are nearly inseperable. They get into so much trouble running through the house. Nothing on a flat surface is safe when they’re on a tear. Once they run out of steam, they usually cuddle up together for some mutual grooming and naptime.
ShadowFire is a rescue from the neighborhood. Don’t know where he came from, but he was sick and malnourished. The little Scamp was delivered by a friend. Also sick, malnourished and if left where he was found would’ve been coyote snack food before the night was over.
ShadowFire and Scamp have been inseperable from the very first day we let Scamp roam the house. No growling, no fights, just immediate friends.
I love to watch the interaction between kitties. With 13 or so outside, it’s like one big happy family…most of the time. Occassionally someone gets their knickers in a twist and we have growling and slapping. For the most part, they either get along or agree to disagree. Since we had Swirl neutered, we have much more peace on the deck, lol.
With the herd of kitties, we don’t need dogs as the kitties follow us around outside….and we don’t seem to have much trouble with snakes, mice or rats. I’ll definately keep feeding kitties! They;re great entertainment and I like being petted by them!
