Wow - what a fun thread.

First of all, I really enjoyed the pictures.

To the applehead lovers - I also feel that Siamese breeders have ruined the breed with these skinny pointed headed bats that they breed. We've had 3 appleheads (2 seals and a blue) over the years. They've all moved on and we have a Tonkinese and 2 Burmese. Sam, the Tonkinese is a classic blue mink - he's a real sweetie but also a real handfull. He's more monkey than cat and at 15, he's still moving pretty fast.

The other two, Philip and Gus are Burms. Philip is a champagne and Gus is a traditional sable. Theyre both pretty demanding too.

As for the litter... all three are indoor only and use one box. It gets scooped once a day and emptied once a week. No problems.

We almost became a 4 cat household again yesterday. We were at a cat show and I grew very attached to a lilac mink Tonk kitten. I had neither the enough cash or my checkbook with me so he stayed with the breeder. I guess that's best since 4 cats on the road is a Stream is a bit too much.

In closing - here's one of my favorite cat quotes...
"No heaven will heaven ever be, unless my cats are there to welcome me"

Well, I was concerned about getting them before they were properly weaned, but the owner insisted they were ready to go at 8 weeks. Perhaps we should have waited longer. I don't know if they are getting better about the suckling, or if I am getting better at ignoring it. I hope this doesn't mean they're going to be sucking on the blankets forever! Maybe it's like thumb-sucking, and they'll out grow it!

I too have had a cat that would suck on her foot. Makes you crazy. I thought it might have been because she was taken from her mother too early; however, my two new Siamese kittens were hand raised from about threes weeks of age on an eye dropper and Kitten Milk Replacer and don't have that problem. Perhaps there are just cats with emotional problems.

Found this guy in an abandoned car, in the back floor board, under a hub cap.
He was so small could fit in my shirt pocket for weeks.
Hand feed him almost all his life.
He never learned how to give himself a bath.
Would be all sticky each time he ate.
Grew out of pocket and started to ride on my sholder.
Traveling was expected, and dashboard was all his.

Hub Cat @ 17lbs

Ahhh...you have some very Maine Coon there!

We got one of these hoping for a big powerhouse cat. Nip is actually Icabod Crane...just never puts on bulk, but is an imp! He has learned to slam a door when he wants food, rides on my husband's shoulder (what did happen to that parrot??) and knocks things off our bookcse headboard when he wants breakfast. Yes, he's a pill, but we adore him.

BTW, thanks for that info re the LEDs. I had been looking for a boondocking replacement for the spots in the living room.

We just purchased a 16' Bambi QuickSilver and I have an 8 yearr old Burmese Claud) who has never traveled. I am hoping that he will adjust so that he can travel with us. Do yor or anyone else have suggestions on how to make this a successful venture?

This one is for the Appleheaded Siamese lovers. This is my older Siamese, rescued from a pet shop.

new kitty coming tomorrow

A 4 month old foster kitty---we pick him up from vet tomorrow after his neuter surgery and then he goes for his first MoHo trip over thanksgiving. We are also looking for suggestions. Can kitties take rescue remedy? We have 2 bassets that are MoHo vets but will probably have Mickey ride in a big soft side dog crate for his first outing. Are your cats leash trained? And in the Moho where do you keep the litter box?
