and we have kitty, kittY, kitTY, kiTTY, KITTY!
50 FREE TWEETS go to Rusty-Dawg Pet Products!
These five babes belong to Luanne from Four are in their senior years. I asked each kitty to share a bit about themselves and their home.
Here are their stories.

Spencer is a 22 year old Flame Point Himalayan

"It's all in the mind. You're as young as you feel and even though I have a heart condition and take a daily pill , I make it a point to run and play every day. Can't let those younger seniors think I'm no fun anymore! I choose not to focus on those 13 years before my mom adopted me when my tummy hurt a lot and I was always afraid. But my new mom figured it out and now I thrive on RAW food! I LOVE it! I have the energy of a middle aged man and live a grateful life of love and luxury!"

Maxxy is an 18 Year Old Smokey Grey Cat

"Most definitely, the best day of my life was when I was 8 years old. I had been living in a cage in a pet store for a loooong time. At first I used to perk up every time someone stepped into the shop. I mewed and watched each human intently. Many came through those doors, but few took a second look into my cage. Very disheartening. I decided to quit getting my hopes up and retreated into my own little world of aloneness. One day, however, a lady came in and stayed at my cage for quite a while. My heart felt a little twinge, but I quickly rebuked it and l tried to go back into my world. Then she left. But she came back. And this time it was for ME!!!
These last 10 years have been a dream. I have a human mom and four other adopted siblings to play with and love. I have lost some weight recently and Mom is a bit concerned, but I am still her sweet boy."

Hemi is a 15 Year Old Seal Point Himalayan

"I suppose I will be honest and tell an embarrassing story. I really was not responsible for this,'ll see.
About 10 years ago I was living with a human who paid almost no attention to me. That's probably why I ate so much fur. It's akin to nail biting for humans...just a way of passing the time. The fur collected in my tummy to the point where I could no longer use the litter box. I tried, but nothing came out. It hurt a lot. Then a kitten appeared at the human's house and he almost completely ignored me. One day I heard that dreaded word that starts with Eu. I was terrified. Thankfully a friend of the human took me away and brought me to a really nice lady. She took me to the kitty doctor. I had kitty enemas. I kid you was NOT fun! And the worst part was that they didn't even work....well...not until much later when I was in my mom's bedroom. Pee-U!! I couldn't help it! It all exploded. But OHHH...what relief! Any human who still loves a cat after that is worth keeping! She grooms me, tells me how sweet and patient I am and in return, I keep the rest of my siblings in line!"

Tiki is a 15 Year Old Calico

"I am the lucky one of the bunch. I was discovered when I was just a kitty so have almost no recollection of former unpleasant days. My mom has always been in my life as far back as I can remember. I recall being in a neighborhood with some other felines about my age, though we didn't really hang out together.
I wandered over to a house to investigate the place and search for a bite to eat. A few humans were there and I noticed one was watching me very closely. But she disappeared into the house. Wasn't long though, when I discovered a bit of tasty food nearby! It was yummy! I hung out a bit longer and boy, am I glad I did! That staring human scooped me up and took me home! She's the best! And even though I'm 15, I still feel like that kitty of long ago. I guess love will do that to you!"

Beauregard is a 6 Year Old 18 lb.Tabby

"I'm the newbie. I'm pretty well settled in here, but it's only been since last fall that I was adopted into this family. I sure didn't like watching each little kitty disappear from the pet store one by one...all going to a nice home. I wondered if anyone would want a grown up kitty. One day a lady came in with her dog. She hung out at my cage. Her dog and I had a little chat. We introduced ourselves and talked about the pet store. Then they left. Oh well. But guess what?? The next day I was out of there and in a new home with that nice dog! At first I thought I would have no friends since all the cats were so much older. I thought they would all be slow pokes and lay around all day. Boy...was I wrong! That Hemi is a pistol! She could be my great grandma but I don't like to get too close. She's got a wicked paw! I try to behave my best around her! Spencer and Maxxy are my good friends. We play and relax together. Tiki is cool, too. She didn't like me at first...maybe because I am such a giant. But now we are buds. It's just that Hemi...good thing I can still run fast! I'm loving my new home!"
