I felt like sharing these two troublemakers with you. Ginger ninja is Boris and the white one is Miffy.

Okay, not that I'm showing preferences or anything, but I'm slipping in and stealing the white one!

Very pretty. We don't have cats, but lots of other critters.

Are ginger cats just more loving by nature? My daughter has a large, orange-and-white furbabyboy who is a total love bucket.

I have one of those too. He was living outside in the neighborhood, and I thought he was feral. It has taken him months to relax completely, but he loves to be hugged and held. And he is orange and white and HUGE. On the other hand I don't have any who do not appreciate some affection ...

Your cats are lovely!

My all-white is a complete naughty boy, though. He gets into more mischief. He is like the anti-ceiling cat.

They bring a lot into our lives, that's for sure. In Miffy's case she particularly likes to bring small reptiles and rodents. Always alive. Keeps us on our toes!

That's one of the reasons all our cats are now indoor cats. (That, plus they kept getting lost or hit by cars outdoors. ) My least favorite offering was the mutilated snake left at the back door. *shivers*

Fur babies are fab. I also have 4 indoor kitties, Burmese and bengals who are all a big part of our family and simply make our family complete :-)

We have a rescue who is maybe Bengal hybrid (backyard breeders LOVE those for a quick sale :-PPP), or maybe Manx. Whatever he is he is definitely a Dickens!

Also have a Burmese outcross who is pushing 18 and quite the indulged gentleman!
