I mean one minute you're bottle feeding tiny little kittens, the next they've taken over the whole house! :D

NaiNai then.

And of course I can't forget the picture of our "evil" kitty, Haru. No baby pictures of him cuz we adopted him when he was 2.

I don\'t have any before and after, either, because all our kids were adopted after they were all growed up.

Oh, I wish I had pics of mine when they were little but I adopted them when they were six months and two and a half years.  Slinky at six months doesn't look much different!!

I just love seeing everyone's cat pictures! ;D Now that I've "switched over" to the cat world I can see why so many people are so fascinated with these strange creatures. LOL!

Nelly I love that hammock your cats are on. Did you buy it or make it?

I bought it in the store Argos, but a lot of pet shops sell them too.  The one my ex's cat had was like fake sheepskin, but this is artificial husky fur (according to the packaging).  They love it.  Boris was scared of it at first so let Billie test drive it for a week, and when he saw that she didn't come to any harm he took it over!

I lurv it! I really want something like that for our 4 fuzzies, but I have no idea how I'd hang it up. How did you hang yours?

The frame that the material goes onto is hooked at the top at each side.  It'll either hook right over a radiator if it's standard/thin at the top radiator, or into it, if it's convection type like mine is.  The frame is like an open square at the bottom, so they sag down in the material, into the gap, then the arms come up at 90 degrees with a hook on the top of each for hanging.  The instructions say "fits most radiators".

The one my ex b/f's kitty had, I made a cotton cover for the summer, so she could still use it without getting too hot.  She loved that bed - I hope she has one up at the Bridge.  ;D

Nelly: I absolutely MUST get something like that for our kitties!

Speaking of those, here are my then and now piccies:

Tigger at about 3 months (note the large paws!)



A litte later


Tigger now, weighing in at 15 lbs


I don't have any Koby kitten pics, but here's one from today


No K-Pax kitten piccies either, but one that's pretty close


K-Pax a little later...


K-Pax now


Matylda as a wee kitten


Aaaand 11 years later...


Yep. Those are my kitties. *snugs them*

Koby looks a little like a cat I used to know called Oscar.  He lived nearby and would come to visit, play with our cats' toys, eat their food, sleep in their cardboard box and in the sun on the windowsill.  He was beautifully natured and they got used to him.  I really missed him when we moved.
