Lola climbed into my Orchid tonight. She's 5 but thinks she's a kitten. She couldn't quite understand that she couldn't sniff the window from her head in the doorway.

My cats have claws and they love to help just a little too much. I WISH I could allow them in the same room with the minis! It would make life so much easier!

Lola is a beauty!

I love her dearly. We've had her since she was 5 weeks old. Her mother delivered 7 kittens and was a feral stray my mom fed outside her home. It was the end of July and well over 100 degrees for 2 days when they were a week old. The mother became so dehydrated, that she gave up on the babies (who at that age need food every 2-3 hours or sooner!) and was gone for over a day. We nursed (and cleaned and wiped) 7 kittens, until she came home. Once she did, she took them right back like nothing had happened! But after that, she only had 6 working nipples. The two runts (Lola was one) shared.... thus how they became runts! At 4 1/2 weeks old, they were again, killing their mother. She did nothing but eat, drink and nurse in super hot weather. We finally pulled them as they were eating wet solids for the mothers own good, you could literally see all her ribs! We do regret pulling them, because of lot of them have behavioral sucking, but it was life or death... not doubt in our minds.

A week after that, Lola was with us. All 7 babies found good loving homes and the mother was fixed promptly and returned to a normal healty weight. :)

Lola is declawed in the front, as is our 'baby' Fillion (who out weighs Lola by 5lbs+ of lean muscle), but my Phoebe has claws. I don't like to declaw, but with pet parrots, I don't feel as though we have a choice. She is very responsible with them and has never scratched anything other than posts, and actually has no interest in birds (I dont actually think she's a cat). Fillion, however will run off with anything he can get his mouth on.... that boy is trouble and my mini's are at risk if I don't keep them in safe spots.
