His name is Scooter and he is 14 years old. He is a Siamese Mix breed living at the http://www.cathouseonthekings.com/" [Broken].

I've agreed to sponsor him for $15/month.

Maybe one day I'll drive up there and bring him home with me. :smile: Jelly needs a little brother.

OMG, he's BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

If you hadn't said he's adopted, I would have sworn you were the biological mom! :biggrin:

Maybe you will come and visit me one day and we can drive up to the cat ranch. It's about 4 hours north of me.

There is a slight resemblance. Mainly the crossed-eyes, I think.

Re: my "foster child"

Ooh! a cat ranch! Do they need a skilled cat-wrangler to herd them? I promise - no branding!

They should open a bed and breakfast on the grounds. :approve:

I think they have more trouble with extra cats getting in the ranch than cats getting out. The owner says she gets about 100 cats tossed over her fence every year.

you should work at a ferret ranch, anyway, turbo.

Speaking of things getting tossed over the fence, I better go see what threads the other forums have been tossing over the Philosophy fence. :)

Re: my "foster child"

That's a brilliant idea! We could run it!
There's probably some rule about having lodging and serving food on an animal shelter grounds. People get really bent out of shape about cat hair.

Re: my "foster child"

He is gorgeous!!!! With a air of sophistication about him, and he hardly looks a day over 4. But perhaps hes had a bit of a nip/tuck. Thats a really great thing to do MIH. Oodles of hugs and smooches to ya.

True! I love those little fellows. We rescued quite a few over the years, including our first. He had never developed the coordination to run as well as the others because he had spent his life in a cage until we got him. We had a big wire cage with ramps and play-levels and toys (and hammocks that I made out of pants-legs) but it was just a place to sleep and play - we never closed the door.

Thanks! He does look pretty good for his years. He's supposed to be a real love bug, too. :!!)

Do y'all have any animals now?

No. We swore off ferrets because they are REALLY cuddly, and it is so painful for us when they die. They rarely live longer than 8 years or so, and we went through hell when the gang started dying off with regularity.

We are considering a small-to-medium sized dog. Our cabin is pretty small, but it would be nice to have a pet again.

We could send you tribdog. He's small to medium sized, and not much trouble. o:)

He's not house-broken, though. That's a problem.

Re: my "foster child"

MIH, I think that is very cool. Now let me tell you about another cat up for adoption: His name is Isaac. He is an approximately ten year old neutered male who has a wonderful home at the Tsuandivan cathouse, in Oregon. For only $20 per month, you can adopt him as well. For that price he gets food, shelter, and two human slaves.
