Our house is full of companions with fur (inside the house and the immediate outside of the house) … a total of ten (10) to be exact.  We have 7 inside cats (however, we refer to them as “kittens”), 2 large dogs (we refer to them as “puppies”) and one porch cat.  We laughingly refer to our home as the opening of a transient energy portal for those in need of human guardians.  A few extras appear for a few days, few weeks or few months before they move on, or have presented themselves for assistance to cross over to another realm.  The age range is 7 years to 15 years.  This companion photo is our youngest yet largest of our “kittens.  He is a bruiser yet he still fashions himself as a little waif of light weight as he tries to snuggle next to any of the others.

    adorable little guy.. but how do you know they are all furry on the inside?
    (I think I am tired… because I couldn’t stop laughing about your animals that are furry, inside and out.) thanks for the unintentional chuckle.

      LOL — I guess I should reword it — I meant we have them all around us — inside and outside — front and back!! Glad I could give you a chuckle!!

      (But on another thought — with the amount of hairballs I have to clean up — they could very well be furry on the inside almost more than the out!! Not to mention the amount of fur to clean!!) 😀

    That’s exactly the age I got Dixie Rose. I couldn’t remember how old she is now – my gosh! She’s twelve years old! I guess it’s time to put her on the elderly cat food… I’ll have to talk to her vet. Good gosh – so many pages say the normal life span is 12-14 years. I think we’re going to go for abnormal!


    • becca givens says:

      I didn’t realize that was the average life span for cats — I know of so many who live longer … a blogging friend had hers till the age of 24 yrs. …. full long life. 😀 I say that, and then readily agree when they leave us — it is still too soon! 😀


  15. He’s gorgeous! 🙂

      Thank you, Katharine … shortly before he came to us … I had mentioned to my husband … “you know, we’ve never had a white and orange, orange or yellow cat come to us” … then a few weeks later … lo and behold … he darts out our garage!! We eventually brought him in for his own safety … he knew no fear. Sat in the sprinkler, in the middle of the road, climbed the huge oak tree and get on the roof … welcomed anything and everyone! LOL His personality changed when we lost the matriarch last August — now he is VERY NEEDY and clingy — but still a BIG BOY nevertheless! Thank you for stopping.
