That's a fine figure of a cat, ET!

Dom thee Danger Catte is getting there. It's slow, but he's applying himself.
Here he was back in his "salad days"...

Dom sure is a handsome fella, Pieces. We had something like six or seven B&W tuxedo cats at the same time a while back, but most of them are at the tuna volcano now. Romeow has two bad knees, so he carries his weight mostly on his front legs. He could probably beat me arm wrestling. He's been with us for around 12 years, another one of the racetrack strays.

I'm partial to Tuxedo cats myself.
Haven't had a new one come along and adopt us yet though.

have a relative who had a cat who kept having urinary tract problems. Eventually they paid a bundle to give the fellow a virtual sex change operation that rerouted and widened the opening where he peed. It worked and he lived another 5 years with no more problems or special food.

how is Max?

Vet mentioned that operation. Max is only about 5 years old and if this doesn't clear up, I may look into it.
He's doing o.k., but is still being picky about the food.
Turned his nose up to moistened food with chicken broth and just plain old chicken broth.

(I think he's a little mental)

"Tommy-the-cat" (Tommy) is the black and white fluff-ball
Tabitha is more gray and white

Tommy is magnetically drawn to anything that could create havoc when bitten, scratched, knocked over, run into, or tripped up.

Tabitha is generally a sweety, but occasionally mimics her brother.

Looks like they're still babies. It's great that you kept them togther, fluboe. We have several groups of siblings in our herd, and they generally form a pretty close bond. Calli/Ozzy/Princess; Trixie/Dita; and Little One/Devil Kitty until Devil died all have very strong attachments to each other. The longtail family - Tiny/Junior/Fluffernutter/Pippi/Daisy Mae/Smudge/Linus are a pack of weirdos, though. We watched the six kittens being born, they have lived with us every day of their lives, and they're a bunch of freaks. Linus is terrified of everything that either moves or doesn't move, Smudge, Fluffernutter and Junior are OK if we're in a particular place but not anywhere else, Daisy Mae and Pippi are more or less normal, and Tiny wants to hang out in the bathroom all the time. None of them will curl up with each other. Buncha loonies.

Tommy has same pink nose as Mouffette (who never grew past 5-1/2 pounds).

Tommy is was over 8 pounds at 6 months old... he's going to be a monster I think... well, he already is.
