You're right, joeguy, he's growing increasingly accustomed to life in my crazy world and he's getting more and more comfortable.

He's not as wimpy now as he was when I got him three weeks ago. He's already made lots of progress.
Pom, that's so sweet of you to keep the cat on weekends. :cheek He's a cutie. I think it's cool that they have the cats in the office. Wish I could keep a pet at work but being in the restaurant business that's not such a good idea. :lol
Phew, Unk, I'm glad to hear you say that!! I knew of a restaurant in downtown Denver that was shut down by the Denver Board of Health because the people at the restaurant kept cats there.

(The restaurant, ironically, was called "No-nos.")
ok, I am not a real cat lover, but..........Pom. that is one cool picture of a well contented cat.
That is wonderful of you to take him home every weekend. Bet he's not gonna want to go back after a while.

Hope to see more pics soon.
Ooh, I love other people's pets. Especially cats, since I'm about one degree away from becoming the stereotypical "Crazy Cat Lady". Here's a pic of my two kitties chilling out on the sofa. They look a little sleepy, but they tend to do that a lot :)
Ooooh, geek, they are GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you :) I, too, think they're gorgeous. But then again, I'm a wee bit biased, being their Mommy and all.
Actually, their story is an interesting and sad one - but with a happy ending. They're sisters and turned 2 years old a few months ago. I got them from an animal shelter; before someone turned them in they used to live with approximately 30 other cats in a one bedroom apartment :( Their previous owner, an old lady diagnosed with Alzheimer, didn't have the money nor the energy to feed them, so they were in a very bad shape. When they first came home to me and my boyfriend they were terrified and very fidgety, but now they sleep in our bed every night. Actually, one of them is sitting on my lap as I am writing this. It just goes to show that tons of love and patience can make all the difference :kitty
Anyone else here who got their animals from an animal shelter? I'd just like to raise some awareness regarding the fact that there are plenty of adorable animals who are literally dying for a loving home. While these animals may not be as immediately personable and cute as animals raised under safe circumstances, the reward is so great once you gain their trust.
Here's another pic of one of my babies: little baby Stella :)
Geek, your cats are gorgeous :heart
I have a dog from shelter, she is a great girl, and I do not think I would get a dog from anywhere else anymore. We always had pure bred hunting dogs at my parents place, but my first own dog was a mutt, and he was the most lovable dog I have come to know. My husband even recently said that he does not think he can ever love a dog like he loved Alex (the mutt). Every dog we meet gets now compared to Alex, and although we love each of them in their own way, Alex has his own special place in our hearts. It is a bit in his honor (as a mutt) that I like to get pets from shelter, or at least rescue them. I have to try to scan one of his pictures some day, I think he was (of course) the most beautiful dog to ever walk on earth ;) (My extremely subjective view :lol)
Great pics of your cats, Geek!
I came downstairs this morning to find mine all snuggled up:
