6. Awww...
You share kitty pictures. I like you. :)

They look like wonderful little beasts.

Are any of them related? Some of them look similar enough to be kin. But cats even in the same litter can look so wildly different I know that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

8. They are the best
Two of my kitty cats are related. Gus has a sister who i can't seem to capture on film (or digital, you know)... she is all black and very active when the camera comes out,so the photos always suck. I keep trying to capture her, but she is sneaky, but beautiful. I'll post a lesser photo of her.

The kitten, Molly seems to be of the same gene pool as Coco and Gus, but they aren't related. Mini is just Mini, very petite (1/2 the size of Gus).

That is all I know of their family trees.


I went a long time without cats, and when I got them I couldn't imagine how I had lived so long without cats. (I got them after my dog was overtaken by kidney failure) I went from no cats to four cats in a very short time. :O I love them all very much.

13. They are gorgeous.
Have you thought of trying a fabric softener dryer sheet on her fur? She is beautiful, but her fur looks like she needs some static release. :D

She looks like a real maine coon...

18. I don't think those fabric softener things are safe for kitty-fur
but Maine Coone's fur kinda does that on the underside, even if it's not staticky. Kinda the 'feathered-look.' Looks like my cat.

She probably has that teeny squeaky voice that talks to you with all the time, and as time goes on she'll use it more.
