I am a cat person. My family has always owned cats and it has carried on thru me. We did own 2 dogs, but for the most part we owned cats. Ok maybe they owned us, but you get the point. I made a list of the cats my family has owned in my life time and it's amazing how many we have had over the years. Two dogs and 23 cats, 8 of which are still around. Ten of those have been mine since 1986.
Currently we have 5 under our roof. Of those five, four of them are around a year old, so apparently I'm passing on the feline trait of being owned by a cat to my kids.
January is a big kitty month at Happy Acres since this is when we acquired 3 of our 5 kitties. And its also the month one has a birthday. And my how they've grown! (or aged, depending on the kitty).
See this little kitten waving at you?
He turns 18 in less than 3 weeks.
Now why'd you have to go and remind me of that?!?
Two years ago we went thru a rough time when we lost 3 kitties. So last January we went to the shelter to get 2 more.
They were itty bitties
but a lot can change in a year.
Five days after we got the two new kittens, Lucy decided to join our family.
You know you want me!
See, I haven't aged a bit!
Apparently four cats isnt enough so one more joined our family.
I'd chew up that mouse now!!
They say every life should have 9 cats. The way I'm going it looks like I will have 9 lives myself to accomodate all the kitties in my life.
