Crazy Cat Lady

I know that I'm always saying I have five cats (like a sensible person would even admit to such a thing), but posting pictures of one or two. That's in part because they are rarely all in the same room together--which makes it seem like I really only have one or two...which is mostly a good thing. Also, there's the fact that Mystic tries to kill Samhain if he sees her.

But this morning, we had a rare moment of detente, in celebration of the sunlight and a warmer day (last 2 days--20's, today 60...upstate NY, OY), and I actually got the first picture EVER of all five together. Here ya go, proof that I am, in fact, a crazy cat lady.

That's giant Mystic and his smaller look-alike mom Minerva in front, skittish Angus in the middle, Magic the Cat hogging an entire patch of sun, and little Samhain trying to be unobtrusive in the background...

Also, you should know that this moment lasted about three minutes... then everyone returned to their separate corners, as usual.

  3. I wish mine could do that for three minutes...! lol We have to keep two shut up in a room while one roams, then switch out, or they try to kill each other. It's depressing. :o(

    1. I hear you! Samhain and Angus have their room upstairs (it used to be called the guest room, but now it is the cat room that guests occasionally get to sleep in--lol) and stay up there overnight and when I'm not home. (Angus gets along fine with the other cats, but has a tendency to eat things that aren't actually edible...and he and Samhain were in the same room at the shelter when I adopted them, so they're happy to be together.)

  4. You crazy? We both are then. Good company. I have three. I'm not too far off. Just please do not let me see another poor kitty in need of a home. Thankfully, they all have reached a truce - for the moment.

    1. I had three before I went to get "just one more" and brought home both Angus and Samhain :-)

  5. How is Samain doing, healthwise? I hope she's doing well. You have some cute kitties there.

    1. Samhain seems to be doing very well at the moment. *knocks on wood repeatedly*

      Her numbers have stabilized for the moment, and she is eating well and maintaining her weight. I do have to give her subq fluids every day, which isn't much fun for either of us, but it is well worth it.

      Thanks for asking!

  6. Pretty! Lots of kitties.
    As it says on a photograph of two kittens I found on Pinterest:
    So sue me, I'm a cat lady.
