"Give me a room with a view!"
Travi, the Orange Tabby, started life as an illegal resident of a garden apartment. His windows were covered with paper, and he had to work really hard to pull the paper loose. Suddenly he needed a new home, and luckily his new place had huge sun filled windows.
Watching big cats on TV and live birds on his "Cat TV" (a bird feeder hanging on the family room window) are a few of Travi's favorite activities. Another is climbing onto my shoulders to watch me paint or type. He's a bit of a critic, letting out a low "mreh" at the things he doesn't like.
Lucky for them they found an adorable kitten and instead of making pickles they adopted the tiny tabby and named her Pickles.
This classic or blotched tabby uses her stripes to camouflage herself under the piano bench, where she likes to keep lookout over her family. Pickles once ran on her hind legs, hissing and batting at Grandma to let her know who was in charge.
Despite her humble beginning on the farm, Pickles does enjoy the finer things in life and will only drink fresh water provided on command.
And why not be proud of her feline fabulousness. She's the only cat in a busy house full of adults, two kids, Indy the Australian Shepherd, and a Russian Hamster.
Although we'll never really know her background, Cat-Cat shares some of the features and fluffiness of a Norwegian Forest Cat.
She uses her calico camouflage to her total advantage as a super hunter who once tried to bring a live bird into the house. She's also part ninja, and once stunned a rat by bopping it on the head.
They found love on the internet when a family saw their pictures and brought them to live in their historic, lakeside home. The cat siblings also discovered a wealth of affection from their new human triplet brothers (Joseph, Zander, and Benjamin).
Although he looks like a Ragdoll breed, Sesame enjoys keeping active watching, catching, and destroying dancing ribbons and feathers. He's not always the most graceful, like the time he ran full tilt after a toy, slipped on the kitchen tile, and crashed head first into the cabinets with an epic thud.
Sesame's favorite past-times include stalking his sister, watching water and licking the drips, opening drawers, creating cat chew toys from craft supplies, and hiding behind furniture to surprise passers-by with a swipe of his lightning fast paws.
