my kitties <3

13 Mar

i’ve talked about my cats, but i haven’t showed you my furballs yet!
most of my friends (except for the purely “dog-people”) go gaga for my kitties, and they should! i know i sound like a proud mom, but my cats are awesome. they are actually like little doggies, they are so loving!

yuki, the only male, and the biggest of the bunch is turning 6 years old this june! he’s an absolute lovebug and cuddlemonster, and he is the most vocal of the three. he recognizes the words hungry, come and his name :)

cookie is the second of the gang, 5 years old, and the most beautiful cat in the world (proud mom syndrome again). no seriously, she is a gorgeous dark tabby, with huge amber-green eyes, and the cutest heart shaped nose! she is also a cuddlemonster, but a little skittish towards strangers, especially men. i think she was abused by the farmer where she was born at, and carries around a fear of men, but it’s getting better and better, and i hope she can one day be fear-free towards everyone.

the third musketeer is loki, a rambunctious half bengal little terror, but oh so cute. loki turns 4 this year, but she is still the baby, even physically she’s the smallest of the three. she is the funniest creature i’ve ever met, and is too spirited for her own good, always causing trouble! but she’s just too damn cute for me to be angry with her, so she just gets away with everything! she is very communicative, especially when she dislikes something- for example if she’s picked up but doesn’t want to be held, she’ll make these adorable complainy sounds, to tell us to let her down… soooooo cute!

dreaming of mischief, surely

my cats are rescues, and i wouldn’t have it any other way! adopting an animal is saving a life- i strongly support adopting instead of buying, because buying pets encourages illicit breeding, also known as puppy and kitten mills, where the animals are kept in horrendous circumstances, whete all are very sickly, inbred and unhappy. i have nothing against buying pedigree puppies or kittens, but it has to be from ethical, registered breeders, that don’t treat animals like birthing machines until they die. i will write a post about this soon, also about spaying and neutering, which is just as important.
getting back to my kitties, i adopted them from the kittenfriends organization, a group of cat-lovers that go around the viennese countryside, catch (spay) and release adult cats, and take the (weaned) kittens into the city, to adopt them out to people. they do a great job, and i can’t thank them enough for giving me my three furbabies :)

    We love the kitties you adopted. They are all so cute. We are rescue kitties, too. Mom says that’s the best thing to do. You have a really pretty window to look out of. We love sitting in the windows so we can keep track of what’s happening outside. We’re so happy to make other fur friends around the world!
