    Are you owned by more than one cat :p I am, by 4 naughty furbabies :p

    How do your cats get along :p

    I have in the following of age order:

    Big Billy - My 8 year old Marshmallow Moggie and Cuddle Buddy :eek:
    Independent Inka - The loner of the group, she likes to sit along, hunt alone, be alone
    Tabitha - Inkas sister from the same litter - She is a funny one
    Little Sydney - Our little Siamese and the naughty one of the group (8 months)

    Billy is like the daddy to Sydney and Tabitha, Tabz likes to cuddle up to him and when she was a baby she followed him around. Sydney loves Bill and gos where Bill goes, but he loves to jump, and attack Bill, he was ambush him:p

    Inka is Sydneys mum and they cuddles up together, usually with Sydney on top of Inka :D

    So Tabitha does not like Sydney as will hiss and attack him, she does not talk to Inka, only to Bill :p

    How do your cats work ?

    I am slave to 4 too :D

    Mine are;

    Lilo: Tabby (moggie)
    Stitch: Tabby (moggie)

    They are sisters and 2 years old, and very very close! They do everything together. Even having babies and raising the litters together! (well not now lol!)

    Arnie: Black and white, Lilo's son from her first litter. He is a big boy and now 1 years old. He is a very loving cat, and knowing his size he feels he doesn't need to argue with other cats lol!

    Acacia: Lilo's daughter and nearly 8 months. She is a seal point (but moggie?!? very beautiful cat and extremely sweet.

    They are all spayed/neutered. They are all so close, Stitch still thinks of them as her own as well as their real mum Lilo! I have never seen such bonds between a multi-cat home!

    But the heirarchy goes: Stitch, Arnie, Acacia and Lilo! Lilo will always wait to eat until all the others have finshed even though there is 5 bowls?!

    Here they are, Lilo&Stitch, Arnie then Acacia.

    Well i've only got the two, brother & sister both aged 7, but i think Lucky rules the roost, being the female one.

    Patch is the trouble maker & will pounce on her if he wants to play (he thinks he's 2 sometimes) but Lucky gives him a quick swipe to put him back in his place. Of course there are times when i've caught her doing the same to him - then we get the "it wasn't me" face from her, LOL.

    Im a slave to 6!!

    Ronnie is the oldest (4yrs) and shes huge! Shes like a bear. She thinks shes boss but she rarely comes in. She sleeps on the porch strange girl!!

    Nips is a year old, she mothers everyone else and accepts any old cat.
    Boo is nearly 10 weeks old and is Nips' daughter.

    Tabs and Sops are 4/5 months old and brothers.

    Bella is 8 weeks old

    Tabs and Sops adore each other (being brothers), Sops loves Boo, Boo loves Tabs, Tabs loves Nips, Nips loves everyone and Bella loves Boo :D

    All in all, Ive got a very happy home. All my fur babies adore each other (apart from Ronnie, who likes to be alone).

    Oh and before anyone jumps on me cos Nips is so young and has had a litter already - She was given to me along with 4 babies who were just 4 weeks old at the time. The owner couldnt cope and was going to have them all put down :eek: I took them all in as I couldnt bear to see innocent babies put to sleep for no reason!!!

    Looks like you've got a full, happy, house there. Well done for taking Nips together with 4 kittens. Not many people would do that!

    Why on earth would anyone put healthy cats down just because thats the easiest option for them.:cursing: I hope the previous owner doesn't have any more cats.
