Best Small Cat Breeds | Pictures and Information
I am 67 yrs old, love most animals (snakes, spiders and most insects weird me out). I have had cats most of my adult life and two dogs (one as a kid and currently have a 16 yr old Jack Russell that I inherited from my Mom when she passed away in 2004). I had one cat, Annie, that I found as a kitten and she lived to be 22 yrs old. She was the most amazing cat: extremely friendly, non-aggressive, played tag and nice and seek and most amazingly would play fetch with a small rubber ball. Annie had one idiosyncracy, she liked cantaloupe to the point she would sit in front of the fridge until she was given some. I moved from Florida to Oklahoma to take care of my aging Mom and Annie and my other cat, Cello, moved with me. My Mom wasn't too keen on cats in the house but Annie quickly won her over to the point Mom always had cantaloupe on her shopping list. My Mom's dog would try to get the cats' food so my Mom set two places at the kitchen table for the cats complete with plastic place mats, saucers with their names and two short bar stools condition on while they are. When Annie went blind at the age of 20 after talking and hitting her head Mom moved her water bowl and litter box into her room and would feed her on the bed and warned everyone not to move any furniture around because the cat was used to where things were. This from a woman who didn't want a cat in the house, lol. We lost Cello in 2000 to a seizure disorder but she had her talents also she would sit on the back of a sofa or easy chair and massage Mom's head (seriously, no claws just) and she could unlock doors and manipulate any kind of doorknob and open it (could even open panel and accordian doors): we baby proofed all the kitchen drawers and cabinets but Cello learned how to manipulate those latches. My roommate just lost a 16 yr old Siamese that was desperately in love with my roommates two Cocker Spaniels. She would curl up with them or lay on them to sleep and if either dog was not feeling well she would lay on them and purr (I have pictures of this). After Annie died I got another cat, Roxie a Siamese, that was very attached to Mom and when Mom died and we brought her ashes home Roxie laid on the box of ashes day and night and would occasionally yowel as if crying. Cats are amazing companions. I now have two more cats that are 13 and 15 yrs old that I got as kittens. Both are very active and healthy. I manage to keep animals for a long time: must be doing something right. I am also fostering a Betta, Siamese Fighting Fish, but that is a whole other story. Keep on with this site and ignore Hanna better yet block her from her vicious posts.
One of the great mysteries of life is the obsession cats seem to have with fitting themselves into the smallest of spaces. From boxes to shoes to various other household items, these cute and funny pictures will give you a good idea of the extremes a cat will go to just to snuggle into a spot they stubbornly want to be in.
