No matter how miserable my day was, I know my boys are at home waiting for me. Wanting to be fed is beside the point....once they are fed, they can't get eough of me, and I love this about them.

I loveeeee my 10 beautiful rescue kitties. For me there's nothing better than coming home and all of them waiting 4 me at door with the cutest lil faces. It's a beautiful symphony of purrrrring! And i can't forget the rolling around like crazed goof balls on cat nip...there's so much more i could say but i'd be here awhile. Thx Cher

For me it's the love, the fun and the sheer joy my 3 cats give to me , 2 were rescued as kittens and 1 was a stray I fed daily and he choose to live with us. Each of them have their own little character and I could never imagine my life without my bonnie kitties. Thanks Cher.

When I come through the door they are sitting there waiting to give me purrs and lick kisses, and the dogs start jumping, barking and they too give me lick kisses, I love all my babies!

I can't imagine a day without rays of furry purring sunshine. How am I grateful? Let me count the ways that they have provided adorable companionship over the decades, made me laugh at some of their fun antics, watching their fluidity and grace of movement, marvellous to photograph, knowing that their are children that have been bullied and come home to a cat that gives them love, so many fabulous things are given to us from the gift of Nature known as the cat.

Life with a cat is so much fuller and joyful than life without.

Right! Who else would climb to the top of my bedroom window shutters and rattle them at 2AM?

They give us unconditional love.They bring joy to our lives and God grant will share eternity with us He gave us these precious animals to be our companions in life He would hardly separate us in death.A poet once wrote "heaven could not heaven be without my cats to welcome me".

My cats are at Rainbow Bridge but being 'childless' they quickly filled that void giving me all kinds of challenges to face every day. They taught me patience, they were funny, kept me laughing, and sometimes they made me angry, especially my Russian Blue. She was napping on the go-between in the kitchen one day and I reached up to pet her and she swatted me in the right eye bruising it. I screamed in pain and cried. Then, like any mom would do, I yelled at her, not understanding 'why' my precious baby would do such a thing. That's when I learned Russian Blues have tempers. LOL But I would not trade 1 moment for any of them. Thnx Cher!!

First of all I've to say that I love all the animals, I've also a dog before. Why I love cats? Because they are special creatures, they can be sweet, affectionate, cuddly but at the same time cunning and independent. They look at you with their beautiful eyes and looks that are able to read your soul.....I cannot imagine a life without one of this furry baby walking around to my house. I love you Mia, RIP Coda, Jack and Miný, love you all.
