[QUOTE=deirdre;5863]My dear departed cat, Scruffy. He was with us for 17 years and died this last summer. This photo's from January 2006:
I hate it when a pet dies and that's why I won't have one again, although Tigger seems to have wormed his way into our hearts and we will be heartbroken when his time eventually comes :( Seventeen years is a very long life for a cat and Scruffy must have had a wonderful life. You must miss him terribly.

Well, he'd had health challenges to the point where we were wondering if keeping him alive would be feasible much longer. He definitely declined a lot in the last few years: he'd grown deaf, he'd lost a leg to his second bout of cancer, and he had congestive heart failure.
That said, he purred readily up until the end.
Our current cat prefers to be outdoors, will spend all of five minutes with people (unless it's outdoors on her terms). She's not very bright, hates cat doors, but she's a good cat. She's just not a good kitty.

Oh, deirdre, what a health battle Scruffy had. For those of us who love our animals, and have been lucky enough to be on the receiving end, we know how heart breaking it is when they become sick. Much loved animals are never with us long enough.
Yes, there is a difference between a good cat and a good kitty.

I love those photos of cats looking wistfully outside. The tail curving the other way from her neck is really poetic.

Your wish is my command, Penny, though I am sorry that you are not allowed to have a cat or dog with you right now.

This is Brutus, in his usual position........
going, "hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.....hey, hey, hey.....what are you doing....hey....hey...a little attention here....hey."
26 lbs Main Coon and dumb as a mailbox of hobo piss, but the sweetest animal I've ever met.

He may be dumb, but sweet with beautiful green eyes is pretty darn good! I like the way you've framed him here, too.
