Cats of Rest Less! Any furry felines out there?

This is Sambal, sadly passed away last week but so many fond memories of a wonderful lap cat. He’s a Birman!

      This is Chicken who was a multi-rescue cat I had in New Zealand. I’d always referred to her as a torti-tabby, but this photo flashed up on my screen saver the other day and I took a proper look at her markings, which are actually ginger and tabby – quite beautiful.

      These are just a few of my 7 cats, Aspen, Juniper and Poplar, Linden and Sorrel you can just see. All rescue cats.

      I have 2 elderly rescues – been with me for nearly a year. They settled in so well – not that keen on one another though!

        Funnily enough, I am cat sitting two sisters – one black, one black and white like your two – and they don’t have much time for each other either!

      Beautiful cats! Sadly I lost my cat on Saturday when she  passed away in my arms after several seizures.

      She had been poorly for a couple of weeks due, so the vet told me to stress caused by my next door neighbours young tom cat trying to dominate the entire area. She had been over grooming to the point of making both of her front legs as well as part of her chest completely bald, as well as being extra clingy and going off her food.

      We had finally got her eating again and ahe seemed to be heading in the right direction and was due to go back to the vets this week.

      Unfortunately we wouldn’t have even got her in as an emergency before she passed away.

      My house seems very strange.

        So sorry to hear about your cat – for small creatures, they really do take up a lot of space in our homes and our hearts, don’t they? I can appreciate how strange your house will feel without your precious friend. Wishing you well.

        Sorry to hear about your cat. They give so much, although sometimes reservedly, my cat of 20years died two years ago. I swore I wouldn’t get another as it was so painful, but my house seemed so empty and suddenly I found I have three cats now, but that’s another story. These cats coffee for a walk with me every day and I wouldn’t be without them now.

        So sorry to hear you have lost your friend. It is very painful! Take care!!

        Very sorry to hear that. Take care of yourself.

      • lindsay 10th November 2020 at 8:09 pm

        So sorry. It is just awful to lose them!

      I love cats! Your pictures made me feel warm with fond memories of my fur babies. I wish I had a cat, they are difficult to adopt at the moment.

      This is Jago, he is a rescue who adopted us just over two years ago. He is an indoor cat but loves to sit at the open back door watching the world go by. He asked me to set him up with a Twitter account during Lockdown 🙂 where he now has close to 4000 followers (my account has 21!) and is a Captain in the Aviators.

      #theaviators are an international group of cats who meet on Twitter every now and again to do virtual “escort flights” for pets who have passed on and whose owners would like a time for people to remember their pet as we escort them over the rainbow bridge, and yup it’s as emotional as it sounds, even for a cynical old git like me.

      This is Indra. He is now 16 weeks (27th Sept) and full of energy. I didn’t realise he’s a quarter Bengal – and showing more traits of the breed than expected. He travels with me quite happily and at home he delights in doing mahoosive leaps and bounds and “accidentally” clawing furniture rather than scratch posts. My first ever non rescue cat, bought by a friend who couldn’t bear to see me so distraught over the loss of my previous black cat Midnight.

      My cat is 19! She has her health challenges but still very happy and very, very loved

    • Deleted User 5th November 2020 at 7:28 pm

      Yep.  2 rescue cats 2 Sphinx 🤣

    • SteveBrooks 5th November 2020 at 8:18 pm

      Oh Yes

      Molly our British Shorthair. She is about 5 Months old and although she is my wife’s Cat she follows me everywhere. This is her sitting on my Printer whilst I am Typing this! She is beautiful but is very smelly! She is a “house cat” so doesn’t go outside. She is a very fussy eater and only eats chicken and James Well-beloved wet food although we do have a big bag of Dried Royal Canin Kitten food which she sniffs at now and again. The breeder recommended Felix kitten food (as good as it gets) but it ain’t as good as it got for Molly as it gave her a bad tummy which made her poorly!

      This is Baggy (all black) and Frank (black and white) who I adopted a year ago from a shelter. Baggy is 16 and Frank I don’t know as the relatives of his deceased owner were callous enough to neglect him and he got renal failure. Anyway I thought I was just taking him to give him a comfortable last few weeks but he is still here, despite refusing the renal diet and medication! He goes out for an explore when it suits him and mostly sleeps on a heated pad. He also purrs if I make a fuss of him. Baggy is very possessive and sleeps on my pillow and is a bit of mad bugger sometimes. Also catnip addict! I love them to bits.
