Thread Name: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
For someone who isn't a cat person, I somehow ended up with two, neither one of them planned. I acquired cat #1 almost six years ago when someone abandoned her in the park where I was working at that time. She's white with grey spots and the SO named her Caitlin (after telling me vehemently that we were NOT keeping her). She was a skinny, starving creature in a campground full of dumb, slow-moving rodents. I should have known then that she was mentally defective. She's now almost twice the weight she was when I brought her home. Her nicknames include Dumb Bunny, Piglet, Sausage, Retard Kitty, The Evil One, Katie Cat and Glutton.

Go-Go, our other cat, was acquired almost exactly one year after Caitlin became a member of our household. I inherited her after my adopted grandmother died. The local shelter wouldn't take her because of her age (she was 15 at the time), but she was still healthy and pretty spry for an old fart. She, too, was white with grey spots. She managed to survive another four and a half years, despite Caitlin's best assassination attempts, but we had to have her euthanised just before Christmas, due to a giant tumor in her abdomen. I'm rather guiltily enjoying being a single cat household, but the SO misses her terribly. The dog is wishing we were a no-cat household...
