Handsome fellow.

Hi Musemma,

What a handsome fellow Rrugac is, thank you very much for sharing his photo and story with us.

You take a very fine photograph.

Update : I have moved your second photo of Rrugac from it's own page to this one. I still think your cat is an exceedingly good looking fellow.

Mae Chose Me

by Ellen

Mae

Mae

I met Mae at a very full shelter where she had been living for about a month.

She was in a small cage on a huge wall of floor-to-ceiling cages with cats.

Mae went home with me that day because she was the LOUDEST cat there. Over more than 2 dozen other cats doing their thing, Mae's howl was piercing. It struck me the second I walked in.

I walked over to her cage and petted her, at which point she went into full-on petmepetmepetme purr mode. "See how nice I am?" she seemed to ask.

She was nice, but she was also the same age/sex as my other cat, which I had read wasn't a good idea.

So I gave her a pat and started looking at other cats.

Too bad Mae had already decided I was it.

She howled and howled. I gave in.

I can't imagine my life without her.

Honey.
by: Ren

I suppose that when a cat chooses you then you don't have any say in the matter :)

She is a honey, I love her charcoal patches but I'm not sure that I would be pleased about the howling, my two are very quiet. But yet, Mae is such a honey.

A proper beauty!
by: Larry (Editor)

Hi Ellen,

"See how nice I am?" she seemed to ask.

I am for certain sure that anyone would answer "Yes Mae, you are very nice, you are a proper beauty!" :0)

Beautiful, and she howls too. I bet she gets her own way in everything. :0)

Thank you very much Ellen for sharing Mae's story and photograph with us.

Vincent, the awesomest cat ever.


(Australia)

My husband and I, decided we wanted a cat seeing as our neighbours cat moved away. On the way we were discussing the type of kitten we would like and came to the conclusion we wanted the most crazy one who was the tuffest.

While picking out the craziest there was this gray striped kitten with a white nose, chest and paws and a few brown leopard spots on his belly and he was meowing constantly! He wouldn't stop! The kids would pick him up and he'd struggle to get down but wouldn't run away, he was just walking and meowing desperately at no one in particular. We decided he was the only cat with any brains to realise that this wasn't the place for him. So instead of the rough and tumble meanie we were originally going to choose we chose the most woeful kitten there.

Over the next few weeks his personailty shone through and he was everything we ever wanted! completely potty trained from day one, he was friendly to strangers, sought us out and snuggled when he was sleepy, played with toys, hid in the cubby houses we made for him, played outside and talked to us if we talked to him, he also played fetch if you threw a rock or a stick he'd bring it back, he hung out in trees during the day, plays chasey across the complex, tolerated children, he sits in puddles when it rains with this silly cat smile on his face (probably laughing at the mud I'd have to clean up later)!

I'm so glad we took pity on the crying kitten because our reward has been gaining the third member of our little family. :)

My Cats Half Good, Half Bad

by Allessandre B. Ponzini
(Tryon, NC, USA)

Our cat Zorro had just recently died of cancer and we wanted another one. My grandfather took me to our local animal shelter Foothills Humane Society.

I wanted a kitten, but when we went into the cat room my eyes immediately fell on a black and white cat that looked about one year old. She jumped down off the window sill and began to weave in between my legs I wanted her right away so my grandfather told the people at the front desk and only a few days later we where taking Paige home, that was the good part.

The bad part is the fact that the moment Paige saw our other cat Chloe, a rivalry was born they hated each other then and still do now, so, Paige chose me but she definitely didn't choose Chloe.

bad kitty
by: Anonymous

I have a cat at home and she is very naughty. Every time we introduce her to a family member or friend she nips them. She was especialy bad when we introduced her to my other cat Gramps. Gramps is four years old now, and they have hated each other from the start. So I understand your pain. Good lusck with your cats in the future! I know mine are always getting into trobble.

Not getting on
by: Anonymous

Hi There, I see this is a year and a half old. I am wondering as to whether your cats now do get on together? I hope so.

I have two cats who are just not getting along. They were introduced gradually, a week of just half hour a day together. it is a shame because they are both good cats.

Introducing a new cat . . .
by: Larry (Editor)

Hi Allessandre,

Thank you very much for sharing your story with us about your new cat Paige.

Introducing a new cat to a home that already has a cat is not an easy job. But the good news is that cats can share a home with very few problems.

The trick is to make the introduction slowly, it will take a bit of time and patience, but you can do it.

This article is about introducing a kitten to an older cat, but you may find it useful as the information is basically the same when you are introducing a new cat to the house.

Introducing a New Kitten to Your Older Cat.

Good luck, I'm sure that you will soon have two cats that get on together just fine.
