    I've enjoyed seeing all the 'cat' pics - mostly in suitcases pre trip. I'm sure there are lots of us with more cat pics, so I'll start.

    Background - growing up with many cats - mostly Siamese - my father would descriptively 'name' them. Perhaps the best was "Bagpipes Cat", where he placed our Siamese named 'Pyewacket' (after the poem) on his shoulder facing backwards, and pull his tail ... producing, you guessed it, 'bagpipes' sound.

    Below are two pics of "Jake", our now departed very intelligent, very independent Flamepoint Siamese. The first pic is "Camouflage Cat"; the second is "Handsome Cat".

    Let's see what else others add.

    Sisters Chloe and River Tam on the back porch yesterday. I can read their minds...

    I'm bored.
    Me too.
    We already ate.
    Twice.
    Then tracked litter through the house.
    Scratched on the furniture
    Knocked stuff off the counter.
    Sigh...
    What's left?
    Hairball.
    Yeah...

    Looks like my Max. Even the underbite is similar.

    My beloved Vladimir, sweet, adoring, laid-back, uncoordinated and more like Fernand the Bull (all love, no aggression)...and one of my greatest gifts ever....even if totally ungraceful! :) Eat your heart out Vladimir Putin!

    My last cat, Esmeralda and I were super close. She was so sweet and loving and stuck to me like glue. Problem was she grew to be very mean when I would leave town. Several sitters refused to watch her. I was told it was due to being an only cat. When she died in 2015 I decided to get two to avoid that problem.

    Paprika (brown) I adopted as a 12 wk old kitten. She has had a heart defect from birth but seems to be unaware. She is super smart, easily bored, and runs like the wind. When in the mood she loves to be held like a baby. She turned 4 in April. I’m not sure how long she’ll survive but I make sure she’s always happy.

    Aspen was originally named Moody Blue. She was 2 years old when I adopted her from a breeder a week after I picked up Paprika. Paprika’s breeder knew Aspen’s breeder. Aspen had one litter of kittens but had issues giving birth so after her kittens were weaned they had her fixed and started searching for a home. I drove a few hours to pick her up. The poor thing spent the first week behind the couch hiding from that whirling dervish kitten. Aspen is my couch potato and a real lap cat. Paprika wants you to throw her treats so she can try to catch them or run after them. Aspen would prefer you hand it to her so she doesn’t have to move. When you pet her head over and over her tongue sticks out. She will turn 6 in August.

    I take some of these photos because these two don’t get along that well. They mostly tolerate each other. It warms my heart when I see them being nice to each other. They normally chase each other and fake fight.

    I installed a bird feeder on the window near one of their cat trees. I call it cat tv. Between the birds and squirrels it keeps them entertained.

    A fight broke out shortly after this photo.

    I stared a business in 2016. I couldn’t think of a name. I ended up combing Aspen and Paprika and came up with Asprika. I had to do a search to be sure there was not another company with that name before registering it. I was sure there could not be, I made up the word. A Google search showed that Asprika was indeed a word. It is something can be used on an on line role playing game. It is described as “wings made from the light of God”. Perfect description of my babies.

    This is Baxter. Beautiful boy who loved nothing more than to be on a lap.

    Then we have Sal, who was after Baxter went to the bridge. Another lap sitter.

    And finally Josie - who started it all :).

    Personally, cats creep me out and can’t take their personalities... BUT

    They do make me laugh when they are doing ridiculous things like sending email and wearing ridiculous outfits. Also, human (not cute) names are the best...

    I just love it when his name is like, Walter or Frederick. Makes me laugh every time.
