I have 2 now. Both came to me from the neighborhood so you can say they are rescue cats.
Buddy I have had for about 5 years and Prince who has been with us a little under a month.
Buddy is neutered, and Prince will be by July. I want him to grow as much as possible but will take care of him as soon as he gets too aggressive for Buddy and starts wondering off looking for a Lady Friend. I know you can fix at 4months but that seems so young. Buddy was almost 3 before we got him fixed. It was time he is a territorial fellow and would jump any cat that crossed the boundaries to his Kingdom. and still will even though he is fixed. I've never seed him attack a young kitten and several have been around at different times. He also has an agreement with a lady cat from the north side of our yard.

Welcome!

Between the three of us, my mom, partner and I have 8! At my peak I had 11. I'm a crazy cat lady, because my cats are my children. I would do just about anything to make sure they are safe and well cared for. We don't believe in breeding, so all of our cats are s/n.

You are a wonderful person for rescuing the cats and finding them homes. I have another friend who rescued several ferals from near where he worked. All became really tame around him, though some never warmed up to other people around him. He and his wife now have 5 that were all kittens born out in his back yard (well, a plastic building that she stores things in). He didn't think he would ever have another after losing his last one, but now has those 5.

My boy is from one of the rescue shelters that was at Petco adoption center. He's a sweet boy and boss of the home here.

Wow, thank you for the warm welcomes. So far this has been the most talkative group I have found so far. And you all have sparked my excitement.

I say if you love cats, you can be a crazy cat person :)

I have not had the vet call me to rescue any, but I have become close with my vet tech, talk to her via text once a week at times. She is pretty awesome.

My neighborhood is older and I live in a town that has a lower income average, there are so many stray and feral cats running the streets around here, I have actually brought in several stray litters and fund homes for them. at one point I had 10 cats in the house. my two youngest, less than 3 months are the kittens I fell in love with and their rescue home became my home :)

...and on a non cat related topic, I got on the scale this morning to a 2 pound loss, giving me a total of 4 lost, good riddens... oh and I broke the 170 barrier.

Curiosity after hearing people called "cray cat lady." Do you any have vets that will call you whenever they have a cat needing rescue? One of my friends had that happen. Her large animal vet called her house "the cat house" because I think at one time she had 19 cats, all well cared for and had the run of the house (along with her two rescue dogs). She rescued 4 or 5 kittens from the barn after someone stole their mother and another one or two from there so they wouldn't get run over on the busy road out front. I think most all the others were from the vet who knew how well she cared for them.

Welcome! We had 3 indoor cats and one outdoor cat. Our dear calico Casandra passed away in March so it's now 2 and 1 but they are the pride and joy of our lives. Welcome to the team!
