Here are just a few of the cats that I have belonged to. The one above is Tinny. He lived with us 12 years.

This is Friend above. He made it too about 14 years old. ( I think)
This is Tiger and he made it to 17 and a half. We know b/c he was born in Tom's sister's house.

And our current cat is somewhere around 17 to 19 years old. When Happy show up she never talked. 12 years and 7 months later she talks all the time!!! She has really got a lot to say.
Tiger was a big talker too.
Friend did not talk at first but he ended up talking up a storm.
Tinny was a mystery!!! We really only guessed at his age and he probably had been an outside cat because he didn't spend at lot of time in the house except in winters that were cold. He would get on top of the kitchen cupboards and some time on top of my bookcase. He didn't really spend a lot of time with us. So he never became as much of a talker as so many others did.
I talk a lot to my animals and some of them defiantly talk a lot back!!!
Love coming your way, Happy, Bambi & Fern


  1. Wow. My mom and dad have only EVER had just ONE cat. He was soooooo special that he was never ever replaced.
    His official name... for when he was WORKING was School Cat... at home he went by PRANG. He went to work with mom every day for three years when she taught Multiply Handicapped Students... He was the Pet Therapist.

  2. If not for the conversations I have with my critters, I might just go mad!! I love my oscar so much as he is quite the chatter bug and he loves to have attention and affection. Whippy, not so much. She survived near death and she is very shy of people. I just can't imagine how anyone could hurt a defenseless cat! Hugs. Tazzy

  3. HI
    We have never had a cat before!! Thats good that you talk to them my mom talks to me too and sometimes I just stare at her BOL


  4. Beth here....I LOVE cats! I have had cats forever! They are certainly more independent than a certain Newfie I won't name....ha ha! Hope you have a great day! Love the pics! Keep smiling!

  5. WE've never had a cat. We did have a cat friend, sort of a friend--we were fascinated by him, but he never ran. Anyway, he was quite a talker and always had to have the last word. Talking cats can be very entertaining.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  6. Hi Fern

    My cats don't have too much to say, but every once in a while they will carry on a conversation. They have the most to say at meal time. Enjoyed seeing many of your cats.

  7. Hi! My cats like to talk too! That must mean they are smart!! LOL
    Have a nice night!

  8. The Doggy Nanny had two khats: Ruffin and Cholla -

    Ruffin looks like Butterskhotch and Cholla looks like The Fancy Feast Persian!


  9. Blog Mom has lived with a lot of different cats, too. She said there was always at least one and often several, since she was a little girl and that was several hundred years ago, I think. She doesn't have all their pictures on the computer, though. She just has the late, lamented Stevie Ray Cat and the two kitties who live with us now. Blog Mom says that every kitty was totally different. Even the ones who were littermates.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  10. You are a good cat momma...that's why your kitties live such long healthy lives!
    Hot, hot hot here!!!

  11. We had a Manx cat named 'Mozart'. He was a big boy, who really liked his catnip!!

  13. We've never lived with a kitty before! Mom says I'm enough of a talker for her already!

    Love ya lots,

  14. Our Mom talks to us all day long - we've never had a cat so we don't know what one would be like - thanks for sharing yours with us.

    Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

  15. I love cats, and I had one cat in particular who I think loved me. Or maybe he just loved to have me love him! Anyway, he was a siamese mix manx, had a tail about as long as the first knuckle on my thumb and so we named him "Stubby."

    Have a great weekend, Fern!


  16. Hi Fern so much kitty love in all the pictures...they lived long happy lives because you are a good kitty mom!!!

  18. I love kitties and kitties seem to love me. I think they talk when they love and trust their human. I always consider myself blessed when one talks to me. All of your kitty kids are gorgeous Tinny's markings are especially beautiful. I could't imagine not having cats I'm my life.
