Another Cat for Katlover

Sorry folks but you can't send photo's in a private message. Anyway Katlover, this is Tigger our other cat. She's far more sensible than Tiger! They are my unpaid chief carers and entertainers!!, and that I think entitles them to appear on this site, ya.

Note the size of her paws, she's got extra toe's which gives her an advantage when she fights tiger. He really dos'nt 'love those Tiger Feet'

Mine has too - she has an extra little paw on the side of each front paw and two extra toes on each back paw! (see my pic). Never come across another one so far! Libby

Hi Libby and Dall, Just seen the two extra paws and Im amazed. Are they fully developed and functioning paws.? and are they an advantage or disability? I think they're great. :)

Hi, Lily's extra paws have their own pads and functioning claws, but they don't work independently of the main paw; if she digs her claws in, they dig in too, is extra painful when she's trying to get comfy on your knee! About the disability, her front legs do turn outwards a bit to accommodate the space she needs for her feet as the extras are on the inside, and I have wondered if she may suffer in later years but she's 14 soon and doesn't seem to suffer in any way, she's a lot fitter than me and at 6 human years for every cat year, she's nearly 84!

Not been here for a while, but the mention of 'cat' drew me back! I am a cat person, and for the first time in my life I am without a pet. My moggy died in October, but we had my son's Cairn Terrier living with us so I was content. He has now gone so I am pet-less and it is horrid coming home to an empty house, no Alfie leaping up all excited, or Myrtle sitting at the top of the stairs glaring at us for going out - or maybe for coming home and disturbing her, she was a miserable old devil. I want another cat, but we are going to NZ for September/ October so must be patient and wait until then. The love of my life was a cat (sorry first husband and current husband) called Sylvester, hence my name on here. He was a black & white and had more personality and love in the end of his tail than anyone I've ever known. I was devastated when he went. Roll on November and a new companion.

So many people have said to me over the years that I shouldn't have a cat if I have asthma. What rubbish, I am not allergic to cats.

KATLOVER: Would you believe, we have two look alike cats even to the white chin. Betsy is a home cat. She will go out for the usual, but prefers to sit at my side, poking me as I write. Such a mate.

Sounds like he was a very lucky cat, well done for taking him in and giving him a good home. :)

Our Tiger will watch the tele but runs if it gets too noisey, Tigger on the other hand just dosn't see it at all.

Unfortunately i cant watch programs with dogs or cats in them as i get no peace attall but there we go.

There all different and your's sound a lot of fun. What big ears they have.

Thank you dall,

They are both beautiful but you will have to tell me the secret of getting them to be your chief carers, I have clearly been doing something wrong ;)

We cat people are the luckiest people in the world (in my humble opinion)

Tigger just looks like one I had one day she walked in the door (it was summer) and stayed she was chipped and we managed to find her owners who thought she had gone away to die as is a cat habit but they were so pleased to see a changed cat in her and let her stay with me sadly a week later she started showing signs of ill health so I called the vet out who took blood cultures he returned 3 days later with the sad news that her kidneys had started to shut down so I did the decent thing by her and let her sleep the long sleep she was cremated and we bought a new bush for the garden the bush is now blooming lovely the vets were ever so nice with us including not charging for certain things....I would do that over again if it meant that an animal could spend her last days in peace and luxury like my Tigger did
