Only when she's hungry. She doesn't have the typical siamese yowl, which I kind of miss, my last siamese would have full on conversations with me.

And Saki looks very much like my little lovemuffin, Kissa.
She's one of my wild kitties from outside. She came in the laundry room door one night and decided to stay. I can't believe this is the same cat.

Mason's got that, though he's clearly a mix. He'll sit and talk to that vent in the kitchen for HOURS. And every morning, he goes into the basement and talks to himself, trying to encourage the other cats to go down there and play with him. It's hilarious. I love the talky siamese thing!

Aw! Kissa's a former feral cat, too. You would NEVER know it now. She loves people and her very favorite thing is to crawl under the covers with turtle and me and just purr herself silly. I think my favorite great aunt sent her to me, so I named her for that aunt's cats--she had a long string of cats, all of whom were named Kissa (which means "kitty" in Finnish).

Lindsey, that's no "small zoo!"

Frank's my fave, of course.

Illy does the Siamese-talking too. It drives Mark nuts, but he's getting more OK with it now that he understands she's not in distress, she just likes to hear herself.

Oh, he's LOVELY, spero!

Yeah, too bad he's such an anti-social little butt. :

I mean - we risked DH's considerable wrath to save him from starving and freezing to death, got him dewormed, deflea'd, love him, play with him, meet all his needs and then some. Heck - I learned to KNIT just so I could make him a felted pi bed ... and he IGNORED it.

The little pisser could show some gratitude, y'know?

Well, on the upside, at least he didn't PEE on it, as Sevyn did with the bed I bought for him to welcome him into the pride.

i'm still working on our kitty pi's (well, "working on" in the sense that occasionally when i'm excavating my yarn stash i see the bag they're in and think "oh, i should really finish those" and then immediately ignore them ) and i think ours would react about the same way.

aren't cats great? (or maybe i'm just bitter that sophie coughed up a big nasty hairball on the guest bed )

We lucked out that our cats love each other. Cornflake was an only cat for so long, but when we found the kittens abandoned we had to keep them. Cornflake is a very good Daddy, he gives them a bath every day and grooms them

And here is my furniece, Callie *the closest thing I will get to a niece in a long time, if my BIL wont give me any human nieces and nephews *

I did catch Sammy the ONE time he actually tried out the pi. Now my brother's grateful kitties have it - and they love it.

aren't cats great?
We had the most beautiful little stray in our yard the other day. I heard yowling, and upon investigating I saw a lovely young cat, white with orange tabby markings and a magnificent striped tail, crying with hunger and apparently lost (or abandoned). I went out to see if it had a collar. Poor little thing was wet and cold, with a big bare patch of skin behind one ear absolutely crawling with mites and fleas. Although it looked relatively clean and fed otherwise, there was no collar - and that buggy patch made me want to cry. Once it realized I wasn't going to hurt it, the kitty came right over and started loving all over me. I stepped back into the house wishing I'd never seen the poor little thing, b/c I knew I couldn't do anything to help it. DH - who dislikes all things feline with the white hot passion of a thousand suns - didn't speak to me for two weeks after we took Sammy in. I hope the sweet little thing has (or finds) a decent home, somewhere.

Can I tell you all that I'm dying of cuteness over here?! Makes me remember tonight how special and amazing our furry family members are. Our old cat died in the fall. And soon after we adopted two of the BEST little cat souls EVER. Don't have pics available, but I'll work on it...

All of your animals are beautiful.

Yeah, she was my baby. She'd konk out the moment I opened up my book and just lay there and kitty snore while I read. :
