Meow...

Thanks, Charley for the idea.... I just don't want to get into the heavy stuff today.

1. How many pets do you have currently have?
     Two cats, 2 hamsters and 1 fish.  Let me tell you about my kitty's...
2. Pets name (s)?
   
  Fluffy and Tiger
3. Age & weight?
     Tiger is 6 and weighs about 10 lbs.   Fluffy's age is unknown and weight is about 13 lbs.
4. Female or Male?
    
Fluffy is all boy and Tiger is a girlie girl.
5. What breed?
  
   Fluffy is domestic long hair (no kidding...) and Tiger is Tortoise Shell calico
6. Favorite Place to sleep?
    
Tiger sleeps between my feet EVERY night, and Fluffy sleeps on the floor outside my bedroom or on livingroom floor.  He knows Tiger is very territorial, and often cries for us in the night....sad, I know. 

7. Pet's Favorite Food?
   
They love any kind of cat food that isn't a generic brand.  Especially the Whiskas pouches.  Tiger's very favorite food is cheese...she will attack anyone who is eating it.  Fluffy loves bologna.  It was the only way I could get him to come to me when he was a stray.  He was scared to death of being approached or touched by anyone.  Now, he is the most affectionate cat I've ever had.  ;o)

8. Pet's Favorite Fun activity?
  
   Fluffy:  Tearing up any catnip mouse I buy for him.  He has a collection of toys he hides in the same place and reaches in and pulls them out when he wants to play with them.

     Tiger:   Loves to cry to go out and then hang on the door to come back in... 

9. Is your pet well behaved?
     
NO!  They fight and scratch my furniture!!  Really though, they are good babies.
10. Cutest trick they do?
    
Fluffy:  My husband is teaching him to shake....lmao   Tiger:  Will dance on hind legs for cheese....

11. Who's their fav person in your house?
      
Fluffy:  Even though my husband was adament that he was NOT letting that stray cat in this house, he finally gave in and now Fluffy is totally in love with him.  When he comes home from work, Fluff won't leave him alone, and he loves it.  He stands on him and looks at him, nodding his head at him, as if telling him, "you are my HERO!!" 

       Tiger:  Me, me ME!!

12. Inside or outside? 
       
Tiger goes out for 5 minutes at a time.  Fluffy spent so much time outside when his owners left him that he is scared crapless of going out.  When he DOES try to go out, he often stays out for 2-3 days, so we are really careful to keep him in.

13. If small, do you dress them up?
      
Nope.
14. Enjoy baths & grooming? 
    
    Both hate bathing.  When we first got Fluff, he was covered in dirt and soot.  I bathed him and he has never forgiven me.  I still have a scar on my back...

15. How many pets have passed over that you hold a spot in your heart?
       
Two kitties I adopted from our local Humane Society,  Sadie and Gizmo... Sadie died from a tumor and Gizmo was struck by a car.  :o(   Also my childhood dog Gypsy.

16. Who is the one pet that will always be that "special one"?
       Fluffy :o)

Cute picture of your cats. We have no pets right now. Last pet we had was a poodle we called Buddy. He was like my shadow.
Hugs, and MUCH love
