Just a post to say that I adopted my three year old stray Aggie last November and she is an incredible cat, a true companion. She has adjusted so well and has become a serious lap cat. A cat lover's dream. I have chronic illnesses and she has made a world of difference in my life. I even enjoy buying her supplies, food, litter etc. When I think of the life she had it really bothers me she's so sweet and co-operative. I truly believe that abandoned and stray cats are better than any others, I'm biased I know. Anyway, just wanted to sing her praises. :)

Sounds like an ideal match for both of you! You are both blessed! :)

Buy an animal and you have a bought pet. Rescue one and you have a friend that will spend it's life Thanking you.

Ouch! I bought Den-Den but I think of him as more than a "bought pet". It's true he doesn't know what it is to be abused, and I thank God! He's a very loving little guy with tons of personality, not an ornament on a leash! :(

Always great to hear happy stories :D

..of course I'm not saying that an animal that has not been rescued is not a wonderful animal at all. Perhaps "better" could have been expressed as "unique" then. I have both BTW.

So glad you and Aggie found each other - it sounds like a perfect match! :D
Can you post a pic of your little girl?

Here's a little page I put up with their photos. I know, I know a page for your cats?? What can I say. It sounds like I have a favourite, which would be Aggie and even though they're all rescues I guess I have to admit I am soft on her. I was talking to another cat lover and we decided that it's only natural to have one that just seems to be your closest fit. As a cat family they all get along beautifully and I picked each one to have the best chance of that happening but well Aggie..enough said :o

*happy sigh* ... yup, Aggie's do have great personalities ;)
congrats to you, she's sure to make life all that more interesting :)

Marielle,your cats are ALL beautiful,but especially Mini..I just love longhaired Tabbys :D

Thanks chico..Mini is my eldest, she's 14 now and diabetic. I am controlling with insulin now but she's still doing well all things considered. Seamus is the
trouble maker of the bunch, small surprise it's about ginger cats and Mini is the old wise "don't mess with my corner of the sofa cat". She takes a fair amount of brushing to keep her "look" ;)

Marielle,a friend of mine also has a diabetic cat,17yrs old,I was going to pet-sit,but she needed 2 injections/day.I could not even get the cat to come out from wherever she was hiding,much less give her an injection,so that was a no go.She ended up taking the cat with her on vacation :D
Ooops,I guess it should have been in your other post...
I too have three cats,but they are all males...rulers of the household :D
