I told the Long Suffering Husband that my biological clock has finally rung its alarm bell. You might think it’s a bit late (me being fifty and all), but as a matter of fact, I still have time. A cat can live for 20 years, and (with luck and regular exercise) I ought to be able to last that much longer.
It’s like a box of chocolates. There’s one of every kind.
Which one would you take home?
All of them??? They are all soooo cute!
Aren’t they? I checked back and they’ve all been adopted 🙂
So no little cat for you?
I was very tempted, but we already have four, and they don’t all get along. But I’m sure I’ll give in one of these days…
Oh my oh my – how can you be so cruel on a FRIDAY(!) as to make us choose!!!! OK. if forced at gunpoint not to take all of them: Ginger and Tortie.
My choices exactly.
Great minds succumb to the same weaknesses…
That makes you a Ciarán Hinds fan 🙂
Your mind is clearly a bit greater than mine…
Hee, hee. Or maybe it’s not my mind doing the thinking.
Kittehs!!!! (That’s all I have to say, but I say it with gusto.)
They’re the best 🙂
I don’t know. That white kitten has a totally chill posture and facial expression. And it might be deaf. I had a white cat with one blue/one green eye who was totally deaf and he was one of my favorite cats ever. So cheerfully happy and laid back at all times. So I’d probably go with that white baby. =)
I didn’t even think about the deafness! Would it affect the cat’s ability to interact with other cats?
Well, to some extent, our cat Finn was a little awkward around the other cats but they got used to him. It was mostly an issue of him not ever knowing how loud he was when he was talking, which didn’t always impress the other cats, but he was so good-natured all the time and lived in his own bubble, unaware of their grumblings. =)
Haha, I can imagine him making a joyful noise 🙂

I would have gone for the one with his tongue out
Yes, so very sweet!
Sylvie G said:
So I understand you did not get any of those (?)
No, I wanted to but I’m too worried about integrating another cat with the existing ones. We already have to keep one more aggressive cat separated. Still, they are so tempting, it is hard to come home without one.

It must be so hard
We have a balance now, a delicate balance 🙂
The Ginger and the Tortie, for me 🙂 But they all are so cute !
That Tortie is getting a lot of votes! She is irresistible.
Ginger is delicious!
The LSH is a total sucker for a ginger, especially if it’s a male, like our Jerome.
Siamese Siamese! My family had a few cats when I was growing up and our female Siamese (whose name I just now realized I have no idea how to spell…it sounded like KeeChee) was far and away the most loving animal ever. If you gave her even one pet or skritch behind the ears, she’d follow you around for hours, begging you for more affection in a classic Siamese voice that was remarkably deep and loud. Because of her, I later adopted a flamepoint Siamese and Savvy is wonderful (being a crossbreed with regular domestic shorthaired white cats and orange tabbies to achieve the flamepoint coloring, she does not have a low Siamese voice, but she does make some adorable trilling and chirping sounds).
My second choice would be the white kitten. Being a Bowie fan, I always love the different colored eyes, but more importantly being allergic to most cats, I’ve found that white kitties are the least likely to trigger an allergic reaction 🙂
I am fond of Siamese too, for a similar reason to you. My grandmother had a Siamese called Chi-Wong, whom I still remember with love. White kitties always make me think of Dinah, Alice’s cat. I’m fond of all white and all black cats. Didn’t know about the allergy thing!
Orange for me – every time.
Yeah. They are the best.

Sophie’s Choice, sort of. But luckily, not really as all kitty Kats were adopted and lived a happy life.
Yes, they all found homes. And now a new batch is sitting in the cages. Kitten season at the shelter!
Oh my, so cuuuuuute! How can you possibly choose?
It’s a challenge 🙂
I’ll take the ginger, thank you. I’ve wanted a ginger or yellow kitteh for years.
They are the greatest! Especially the males–they seem to be very mellow.
a year ago we had 7 of the beasties. ‘fraid to say it, but (still) I say: “coyote breakfast”. now we’re down to 4. B sez “no more” but heck! — if we end up with any less, I will go and acquire at least another.
you might (and probably rite-fooly so) demean me/us for the coyote breakfast quip. well, we live at the edge of the desert, edge of town, most the little beasties do enjoy going outside … but we definitely make every effort to get ’em in at night!
Aw, that is sad. Here they get hit by cars not coyotes. But we don’t let ours outside.
ohh ginger one is so sweet and the one with the tongue out looks like it needs a lot of love 🙂 You might be able to find a very good natured one which will fit right in :-))) But the choice is so hard, how can one take just one and leave the rest?
Exactly. I still think about that little tortie with her tongue out. And the ginger, but oh my, what would Jerome say if we brought home another ginger boy!
