Gale,  What a little sweetheart! Love the picture. Our last little cat that we
got is a seal point siamese. She has short little legs but weighs about 8 lbs.
She has no fear of any of our bigger cats. There are 2 that are over 16 lbs.
and she chases them and smacks them. She has no fear at all. Sometimes
she is really sweet and the rest of the time she is a holy terror. lol lol

It's funny how animals get along and seem not to notice physical difference like we humans do.They are excepting of one another.How many of your kitties are Siamese? My niece has five.Sometimes I think animals are a lot wiser than we are.

Gale,
Your pets are adorable! Our two cats Squeak and Jessie are a joy and the willingly enter a large cage at night since that is how they were when we adopted them at the humane society. The daytime is another story. They are friendly and content and love to run around the sun room when they are not asleep in their kitty tree. Thanks for the cute pixs.

Thanks Angela,I'm so glad that you adopted your two cats you did a great thing,for them and yourself.I lost my Kelly ,Ditto and Rocky all within a year and it was so sad.In fact yesterday was a year that I sadly said goodbye to my little Rocky.These two have sure filled a huge void in my life.

Gale,  We have 2 that are siamese.  Speedi is my flame point and his picture is
in my avatar.  Miss Sassy is my seal point and she was in the Los Angeles shelter
on death row when this group rescued her and took her to Petco in Escondido.
Huddy saw her on line and thought she looked just like our Sassy that had died
4 months earlier. Sassy was a sweet and loving cat and our new Miss Sassy is
a naughty cat(holy terror) but we love her. She puts play mice under the spare
bedroom door all the time and bangs on the door until I open it and she can get
her mice out. She does this over and over again. lol lol

I love Siamese cats they are so beautiful when I was a little girl I had a Lilac Point Siamese.His name was Blue he was a sweet cat.My sister had a Siamese named Sam or Samantha.When my sister died Sam was eighteen she kept crying outside her bedroom door.My Niece took her in there and held her and she died in her arms Sam went to be with my sister,she missed her so much.This was a couple of weeks after my sister passed away.I love Speedi's color,I had never heard of a Flame point before.God Bless you for adopting a cat from death row.I miss having a cat but I have enough work with the two dogs,but you never know :)

Gale,  You never know when another cat will show up on your doorstep. lol
My flame point is the one that can't do without me.  When I'm in MI, he has
a hard time. When I call on the phone hubby puts Speedi's ear to the phone
so he can hear me. He just needs to hear my voice. I leave messages on the
answering machine and hubby replays them for him. He goes right to the
phone and sits right there. It is almost like he is human. He is ok after hearing
my voice. Hubby always gives him extra attention when I'm gone. He always
goes along camping with us. Totally spoiled!! lol lol

Carol,they are here to be spoiled,lol.I think that these animals are a lot smatrer than we give them credit for.I think that cats pick out the person they want to own. Speedi owns you lol lol lo.My little Rocky thought that I was his.

lol lol -- the Cat Lady at the humane society told me that the kittens I chose had never seen a single person before being picked up and dumped there so I would have to be very patient and work hard to get them to accept me.  lol --- They took over my little condo in about 3 minuted then we went to bed ..... those two shy, frightened, wild kittens sound asleep on my chest. 
What a great nap !!

Gale, I know that Speedi owns me!! lol lol I don't mind at all! He always sits next to me on
the loveseat. When I'm on the computer he's by my feet. When I'm taking clothes out of the
dryer and folding them, he's  in the dryer and needs to be petted and played with.  I'm real
careful to make sure he gets out of the dryer. Little Suki likes the dryer too.  lol lol They are
so much fun.

GRANA  here;
 Cali( beasty girl)  now, not only allows petting, but actually slows down (as she runs past me)  to make it easier for me.Kiss
Is it possible that she actually enjoys human touch at last?Undecided
Maestro ( sweet baby boy) & Calli curl up together on my desk  chair (good tthing  I   have my own drive up (wheel ) chair
WinkMaestro has egun to snore(loudly)
I was blamed( by hubby) for the overight  noise
.Hubby is nearly deaf so you know how loud Maestro's snoring is to wake hubby up Laughing
 With our warmer winter overnights,Cali has  ceased to wrap around my head overnight..It's obvious, now, it was done for her own warmth & not ou t of love for meCool.That's OK it kept us both warm &  her contented purring sound lulled me to sleep on restless nights, like no sleeping pill ever had.

Neither Peaches of Badcat came near the bed last night.  They wanted their breakfast and that was it.   I wonder what's happening.
