  •  Both of my cats (8+ / 0-)

    Are rescued ferals, both are 14 now and have been with me since their eyes opened. Brother and sister they are solid black.

    Rocky is the lover, a dog in cats clothing, he treats all visitors as potential body temperature furniture. Purrs so easily that he came a hairs breadth from being named Evinrude.

    Natasha, is the stereotypical kitty, aloof, skittish and slow to friend, but she can be a lover too, just on her terms.

    Thanks for the diary, Happy Holidays

    Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.

    •  Even the pedigreed Maine Coon (6+ / 0-)

      I lost in 2005 was a rescue--she had lost an eye and was inbred and died of spinal problems at the age of 8. I'd love another Siamese, but there are so many beautiful mixed breeds that desperately need homes that I can't justify it.

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

      •  There are lots of cats of all breeds that need (5+ / 0-)

        homes, so if you hanker for a siamese, you can adopt one that has been in a shelter or abandoned. Not to be critical because I hear you on the cats that need homes, but to affirm that while all cats are special, sometimes you bond with a particular breed, and there's nothing wrong with that. I have a rescue Burmese. I have always wanted a Burmese, and adopted two from a local cat rescue. This rescue is over-run with all kinds of siamese cats. :-)
