My Furbabies

This beautiful solid white princess is Snowball. She is now 14 1/2 years old. She wanted to be the only kitty in the house. The only way Coal got to come in was that he was so small she didn't know what he was! Snowball was my Daddy's Christmas present from my brother two years before my dad passed away.

The large black cat on the computer is Midnight the mischief maker. I love him dearly, but he drives me nuts! He's into everything, but loving as can be. He's the one who likes to put his paw over your mouth if he doesn't want you to talk. He also likes to nibble on chins!

This loving trio is from left to right: Lucky, Roadrunner, and Punkin. Roadrunner and Punkin are litter-mates and younger brothers of Midnight---and cousins of Coal and Max. Lucky showed up at around 3 or 4 months old, but he's not from the litters of any of my females.

The pretty tortie above is Coal's (and Max's) mama cat, Little Girl. She's showing you where she left her babies for me to find.

The last picture is a re-post of Coal (all grown-up!) and Ginger the Chow who is now 10 years old. Notice Coal's tail, or lack of tail. The vet said that the vertebrate just didn't form enough to create a full tail.

Still to come in another post are Max and Peaches.

What cuties! I love Midnight lounging on the computer. Cats always seem to lie on the weirdest things and I don't know how some of them are comfortable. My sister's cat loves to lie down in windowsills. How is that comfortable? They're only about two inches wide! lol

We love your furbabies! You have alot like we do. We are down to 6 now. Our oldest, Cal went to the rainbow bridge a few weeks ago. He looked like Coal. Love Coal's
tail(ish) by the way!

frugalsuz--- I know what you mean!


Creek Cats--- i've got 8 cats and Ginger (who thinks she's a cat!). All of them are related except Lucky and Snowball. Seeing Cal's picture and knowing he was only a few years older than Coal really made me sad!

One more thing about the monitor! The one pictured is the old monitor that was jumped on so much by the cats that the sides of the picture would go black until you shook the monitor. The cats were all sad when I got the new type of monitor that they can't lay on!

They are all so adorable. A good friend of ours had a pure black cat called Snowball and a pure white cat called Midnight. It was too funny!

Shelly said...

Precious--- Thanks for the compliment. That must be confusing to have a white Midnight and black Snowball. Why did they name them like that? My vet said there's a family with a solid white one named Bunny a brown cat (that looked like a rabbit) named Snowball. The vet and the techs were always confused!

Wow! Snowball is adorable :) I think my favorite is the one of Coal and Ginger though.

Hi Shelly!
Your furbabies are very lovely and strong looking. Coal's tail is the same as my brother and sister's tails! Maybe we are related to Coal. That would be funny!

Thankyou for helping me to find my new hobby! I am going to get started learning magic tricks straight away.
Love from the Great Calvini Bunnini!
